Rocket Cafe (Bangkok)
Nordic by Nature – Rocket Coffee Bar Bangkok
On my last stay in Bangkok – which latest around 2 weeks in a row – I tried to explore places that are a bit off the regular tourist path. So one Saturday we did some research where to head for a real Expat Style Brunch in Bangkok and we soon stumbled upon Rocket Cafe S49.
Rocket is located in Sukhumvit 49 which hosts several cafes, restaurants and a co-working place and is not too far from the ultra-hip Shopping Paradise EM-Quartier. Off the pash from your usual Tourist Spot this cafe seems to be popular more with Expats and Locals (ok, we were looking for that).
A lot of the items reminded me on good old times in Northern part of Europe – starting from home cured Salmon to Shrimps with tangy dressing on a toast bread – this is all we had back then we travelled through Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Also the classics on the breakfast menu such as Granola are not to be missed of course. The whole ambience has a “Nordic” inspiration – big room with lots of light, wood and glass, a true Designer Piece.
There were tons of people seating around who either came to take pictures of the fantastic plates or who had a casual chat after their Yoga Lessons with a good cup of coffee.
I love those places where you meet everyone starting from retired Hipster to young families so me and my friend enjoyed the morning in such a nice (familiar) vibe and we truly were happy to be finding such a great spot.
