Starting the day at Flour Shoppe is the best idea I’ve had in a while. The restaurant hidden behind the Central Food Hall floor of Central Chidlom mall, is worth hunting down if you’re hungry for a satisfying western breakfast. In the latest youtube episode, I join for their buttermilk biscuit stuffed with honey butter glazed, glistening fried chicken with a tabasco batter. As I mention in the video, breakfast is one of the few meals I miss from home!
I’d definitely go back to Flour Shoppe. The fried chicken biscuit was only 165 THB (before tax and service is included). The other items I ordered were also tasty, with the exception of the bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit. The breakfast biscuit was almost a hit, except the bacon had been overcooked. This may have been in an effort to get it really crunchy and crispy, but the charred flavor ruined it about halfway in.
I also had a tomato quiche (195 THB) and a healthy order of granola parfait (145 THB), which were healthier choices where you can tell Flour Shoppe uses good ingredients. However, if I could do it again I’d have the chicken biscuit a few more times before trying to explore more of the Flour Shoppe menu. There’s also a long list of desserts they’re probably better known for that I didn’t get to try in this trip.
Few restaurants in Bangkok are able to serve up southern style biscuits that would satisfy picky southern boys and yuppie yankees alike. Thats why I’ll be back to Flour Shoppe and why I think it’s worth a shot if you’re in the Chidlom area. I also noticed, perhaps because of the convoluted layout of the mall, that I didn’t share this restaurant with many other customers. Perhaps I’ll bring my laptop along on the next visit, before the rest of the city catches on to this little breakfast haven.
