The first Greyhound Café was opened in 1997 at the Emporium Shopping Complex in Bangkok and became instantly famous, thanks to Creative Director Bhanu Inkawat and his Corporate Executive Chef Torsit Sarisdiwongsee hands on approach in creating iconic dishes for Bangkokers. The Fortune magazine quoted ‘The hottest seats in Bangkok’ after a few weeks of opening. Fast forward to 2017, Greyhound has expanded it’s business to 8 outlets in Bangkok and brunches in Singapore and Hong Kong.
Let’s explore Greyhound Café located at The EmQuartier. The cafe presents guest with a white,black and grey theme giving a clean and sophisticated feel without being overly formal.
The place is also perfect for a drink with it’s extensive selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic healthy cocktails
The menu is fundamentally Western and Thai with a few Italian influences. The huge menu selection leaves one with mild headache on what to order and being there alone I could only stomach that much food so let’s see what good.
I started with a Thai Tea Granita(100 Bhat). The concentrated Thai ice tea flavor was not overly sweet and as it melted was more like a Slurpee.
The main dish was a Spicy Crab Pasta in a Lobster Sauce(270 Bhat). The al dente pasta was cooked perfectly and soaked up the creamy sauce. Each bite was packed with sweet seafood flavor, this is definitely a winner.
I ended dinner with Tub Tim Krob Greyhound Style(120Bhat). The water chestnut and coconut meat was crunchy and paired well with the coconut granita and coconut milk.
Greyhound cafe also comes with a lifestyle market, there are plenty of sauces, ice-cream and even fashion related merchandise that you can bring home if you fancy a treat.
Overall Greyhound Cafe is great place for food or drink, prices are fairly reasonable however the service staff could be a little friendlier.
