Neverending Comfort Food
Kiosk Café features hunger-slaying, just-like-home occidental cuisine—but there’s this one more thing… It may be a bit of a ruff! time finding Kiosk Café at its Sukhumvit soi 26 tributary location, but once you sit! down amid the retro-hip-ish décor, you can stay! inside the cosy dining room, or you’ll possibly wanna go for a walk? out to the shade-dappled patio. There is the matter of a particular… erm—facet of the laidback, minimalist-vibe bistro that really sets it apart, but we’ll unleash that story a bit later.
In all seriousness, once you get your paws on the menu, you’ll all but beg! for starters like sweet potato wedges with dusting of Parmesan, parsley, and aioli sauce (B450) to arrive at your table. And it’s difficult not to just wolf down that Kiosk burger (B450) with its nicely seasoned, organic grass-fed beef, tomato, red onion, and rosemary french-fry goodness, while in contrast the rocket, fresh pear, Parmesan, walnut, and balsamic reduction salad (B350) doesn’t stray far from the health-friendly light fare ideal.
Though certainly not to be sniffed at, the fish and chips (B450) with garlic aioli might rile purists with its breaded rather than battered coating, but the fish is tender and firm, the chips thick and crispy; while the pan-seared Norwegian salmon (B420) is invitingly ocean fresh with perfectly-crisped skin.
Even after such sumptuous feed, you won’t have to be hounded into having desert with treats like the house-specialty chocolate lava cake and vanilla ice cream (B230) on the menu, while the moist, rich cheesecake (B150) with fresh berries and red coulis is itself something to howl about.
Many will be no doubt puppy-love infatuated with the idea of paying a visit to Kiosk Café to lap up some of their terrific food, so it’s a good time for the honey there’s something you should know about me moment when the meaning of suspicious subtext is revealed: Kiosk Café is located at The Barkyard, an urban doggie day-commune where pups are the guests of honour. Far from soi mutts, these canine clients are the pampered pets of Bangkok’s pretty good- to well-to-do canine owners’ community and are for the most part well-behaved, and thanks to Kiosk Café the humans who accompany them never have to go hungry.
So whether you’re a dog carer or simply an orphaned human who appreciates really good nosh and the companionship of personable pooches, Kiosk Café is a fetching choice for an exceptional meal, a friendly cake-and-chat, hot coffee, and a cold nose.
