It was a day when the sun was shining brightly, and a cool seductive breeze led us down the street to a stylish little corner in the hip neighborhood of Thong Lor.
We love to experiment with new cuisines and explore new neighborhoods on our weekends. And what fun Thonglor turned out to be!
This little corner cafe is Bourbon St. A laid back cafe with old timey songs playing in the background, and the heady aroma of Jambalaya wafting out of the kitchen.
Louisiana creole cuisine takes the best flavors from African and European food and turns them into exotic flavorful and at times spicy dishes you can really dig into. Recipes are often family secrets and are passed down to the younger generations as a tradition.
It’s a great detour from the local cuisine here in Bangkok. And a taste that will certainly keep you coming back for more.
The variety in the menu made it hard to choose just a few dishes. Rest assured there’s something for everyone, and I would highly recommend the seafood. We settled in with our Pinacolada’s and loaded baked potato skins and thoroughly enjoyed a hearty Creole style Sunday lunch.
The blackened fish with eggplant dirty rice with bacon bits and salsa was exquisite.
My husband loved the fiery Chorizo sausage plate with refried beans.
We are waiting to bring our friends and try out all the interesting dishes next time. I have a feeling Bourbon St is going to be our new favorite cafe in Bangkok.
