Shangri-La Hotel and Resorts are those places you enjoy too much and don’t want to leave, and Shangri-La Bangkok is no exception. Luckily, there’s a number of restaurants in the hotel where you can have a great meal.
Buffet Breakfast at Next2
Next2 Cafe is on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, where guests can have their buffet breakfast. They are also open for lunch and dinner, and an ala carte menu is also available.
The breakfast buffet offers a varied selection of breakfast fare. No matter what diet you’re following, and whether you’re in the mood for a hearty breakfast or something light, there’s something for you at Next2.
On my first evening at Shangri-La, I was too full from my afternoon snacks and enjoying watching the boats from my balcony, that I just opted for room service.
For dinner, I ordered the French onion soup, and a magherita pizza from Angelini’s, the hotel’s Italian restaurant. My meal arrived in less than 30 minutes, with a beautiful place setting. The soup was also contained in a thermos to keep it warm.
It was a great and comfortable dinner, and I found out later on that it was too heavy. I called room service again to request for some containers for my leftover pizza, and I was so happy that they have something ready for such occasions.
Pink Afternoon Tea
Shangri-La Hotel’s afternoon tea is really good, so when I was preparing for my trip, I knew that this is something I need to do while in Bangkok. I invited my friend Mica, who was also in town to share this meal with me, because I know from experience that it can be too much for one person.
Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Lobby Lounge offered a special Pink Afternoon Tea. Everything included in the set are pink. So cute!
The afternoon tea set comes with both savory and sweet treats, one pot of Dilmah tea (or coffee), and a mocktail.
In the Lobby Lounge is the Chocolate Boutique where you can buy different kinds of chocolates made in house, as well as order decadent cakes and signature beverages.
If you can only order one thing at the boutique, let it be the Homemade Fudge. It is the best, most chocolatey thing ever! If you love chocolate, you must try this!
