Prior to the Covid-19 closures, a lot of hype in the gourmet scene was centered around the newly opened Velaa Sindhorn Village Langsuan. With a bevy of exciting cafes, restaurants, and lifestyle outlets, the upscale community mall offers a peaceful yet buzzing respite from the heart of Langsuan Road. By day, groups of affluent execs who frequent the area can be spotted musing over where to satiate their inner coffee connoisseurs. By night, the space comes alive with fairy lights and Bangkok’s well-dressed party-goers, making their way to hopefully score seats at Crimson Room.
Now that we’re all staying home to flatten the curve, things have changed pretty drastically, but there’s no need to succumb to quarantine-induced #FOMO just yet. Thankfully, a lot of our favourite dining venues are responding to the crisis by stepping up their delivery game — Velaa Sindhorn Village included. From your morning cuppa, to contemporary Thai flavours and delectable sweet treats, here’s our list of the best options to get delivered to your home.
Early risers — or late risers, because who’s keeping track these days, right? — kick-start your day with a dose of caffeine from Hong Kong’s famed coffee expert. With premium ingredients, and specialty beans sourced from sustainable farms all across the globe, just a taste of the coffees here will tell you that this is far from your average cup of joe. Satisfy your coffee cravings with their iconic Thailand House Blend, which comes with tasting notes of golden pear, pink lady apple, orange, and a lingering caramel finish.
If you want to go all out and get yourself breakfast, we recommend their boxed salads, paired with a hot latte. For the avid brunch lover, The Coffee Academics will also be serving heartier options on their delivery menu, including pizzas and pasta dishes.
Both takeaway and delivery are available daily from 7am – 6pm. Order here, or call 0 2164 2500.
For tea lovers, or just anyone looking for something more special, Peace Oriental Teahouse is also offering delivery. Specialising in traditional oriental teas sourced directly from local farmers in Japan, China, Taiwan, and locally in Thailand, the sleek, zen-inspired teahouse is reputed for offering a true ceremonial tea experience. Serving up some of the finest teas in town, the rich, intense brews here will impress even the most discerning of tea connoisseurs.
Everything — from creamy matcha-infused concoctions to super dark iced chocolate — can be ordered to your doorstep, with the exception of their ice cream selection. While Peace Oriental Teahouse is as much about the overall experience, you can even order their “effortless tea” — powdered tea leaves packaged with ideal servings of sugar, that can easily be mixed with water or milk so you yourself can “brew peace at home”. If you would like a bite to go with your teas, their selection of sweet and savoury treats is also on the delivery menu.
Both takeaway and delivery are available daily. Order via Grab and Line Man, or call 09 8383 9082.
You might not be able to fly to France anytime soon, but you can still enjoy a taste of Paris, freshly baked, from the comforts of your home. Known for incredible classic French pastries, Cafe Eiffel is now offering their selection of baked delights for delivery. From valrhona chocolate filled tarts, to buttery delights, there’s much to excite the avid pastry lover.
Of course, regulars will know that the signatures here are the croissants — created in small batched daily to maintain a crispiness you can’t quite get elsewhere, these are made from the finest butter and bread. Opt for a plain croissant for the classic experience, or play it up and get a sandwich if you feel like getting lunch. The drinks menu is also quite interesting, with a range of coffees, teas, smoothes, and cold pressed juices.
Both takeaway and delivery are available daily. Order via Line Man, here, or call 0 2123 8703.
Now that you’ve got more time on your hands, why not take this time to make a start on your fitness regime. If you’re looking to turn over a new, health-conscious leaf, or simply maintaining old practices, Acai Story is definitely the choice for you. Choose from a selection of refreshing Acai bowls, ranging from fruity yoghurt-based flavours, to sweet options like Crunchy Nutty.
One option we’ve got our sights set on is the Anti-Covid Awesome Immunity Bowl. Made using a delicious avocado green base, topped with high protein greek yoghurt, this is a bowl that’ll give you that much-needed vitamin boost to fend your body against infections — you can even add a topping of granola in free of charge for a nice finish.
Both takeaway and delivery are available daily. Order via acaistorybkk.com, or call 09 2324 4553.
Among the most exciting new openings, pre-coronavirus closure, was Co Limited — the brainchild of none other than Polpat Asavaprapha. Serving rich, hearty Thai flavours with a modern twist, the restaurant shines for its selection of fantastic grilled meats — juicy, high-quality ribeyes are definitely the signature here — and stir fries. Go all out and get a full-blown feast, or opt for one of their individual rice or noodle dishes for a fuss-free and satisfying meal.
As they promote their extensive takeout and delivery options, Co-Limited is also offering 20% off for those who order in, as well as some pretty enticing deals on their delectable, grilled river prawns.
Both takeaway and delivery are available daily. Order via Line Man, or call 0 2255 2799.
If you’re feeling like home-made meals with a twist, Miss Saigon’s Vietnamese dishes make a good choice to order in. Authentic flavours give you a true taste of Vietnam, while the options come with a warm, homey feel. The selection of appetizers and snacks are definitely worth a try, but if you’re serious about “one dish each”, there is also much to be said about the delicious single-portion menu items.
We recommend the chao tom — crispy shrimp wrapped around sugar cane — though of course a bowl of pho is always a classic, and the Australian beef pho Maison Saigon serves is one you’ll end up craving. Delivery options are being offered at up to 50% off, so treat yourself!
Both takeaway and delivery are available daily. Order via Line Man, or call 0 2656 4966.
