One of my favorite pastime when not hiking, trekking or going to various small towns is spending some bit of lazy time in the nearest city to watch movies or eat at some affordable restaurants. One of the malls that I had the chance to go to when I was in Bangkok was Central World Rama 9. You might have heard of Central World before since it’s one of the most visited mall in Pratunam Area. Central World is a chain of shopping malls and has buildings in various area of Bangkok and other major cities in Thailand.
While looking and deciding for a movie to watch that afternoon. I chanced upon a restaurant called Hippopotamus Restaurant Grill (what a unique name huh!). I got so interested because I saw a buffet table ladened with appetizing dishes. So I went in and asked the waitress how much the buffet would cost.
She said that if I order one of their main courses then the salad buffet is free. Or I could just pay 169 Baht if I just want to avail of their salad buffet offering.
So I opted instead to try one of their main dishes instead and ordered Grilled Chicken with Potato Gratin for only 245 Baht (not bad huh!). Here are some pictures of the food that me and my friend ate at Hippopotamus Restaurant Grill:
The meat was tender and juicy and is very well complimented with the pepper sauce. The potato gratin was delicious and filling!
Spiral Pasta Salad, Caesar Salad, Potato Salad, Boiled Quail Eggs and Salmon
Salmon and Fettuccine with Marinara Sauce
Another round of Salmon and Caesar Salad
Aside from the dishes above, they also have fresh fruits on their buffet choices, some sushi and sahimi, mushroom soup and tom yum soup and more.
Check it out when you go to Central Rama 9.
