Last time I blogged about Goong Hot Plate Restaurant in Pantip Plaza which I just happened to chanced upon while looking for a cover for my tablet. And this time, i saw another Goong restaurant while I was walking around The Esplanada in my last visit in Bangkok. Having had a great experience at Goong Pantip plaza, me and my friend decided to eat at their restaurant as well in The Esplanade.
Unfortunately though, the promotion that they have for AIS (local telecom) users was not available when we were there so we just ordered straight from the menu. There’re so many choices and we opted for Fish Katsu (Deep Fried Cream Dory), Cream Dory with Black Pepper Sauce, Pork Loin with Pepper Sauce, Rice and Miso and Seaweed Soup.
Just like their branch at Pantip, the service was quick and we got our just after a few minutes of waiting.
Deep Fried Cream Dory for only 79 Baht
Thick Slab of Pork Loin for only 59 Baht: Sorry for the blurry pic. I thought it was clear when I was looking at my phone.
Cream Dory with Black Pepper Sauce for only 89 Baht
I personally like the porkchop I had on their other branch compare to the pork loin that I ordered. nevertheless it was still delicious. The cream dory with black pepper sauce though was really delicious. I never thought that the sauce would work well on the fish but it did. For everything that we ordered including two glasses of drinks (green tea and coke) the bill just amounted to 389 Baht which is a good deal considering their huge serving and delicious food.
How To Get There
The Esplanade can be reach by taking an MRT and alight at Thailand Cultural Center go to Exit 3. various passes from different areas in bangkok also ply this rout so check with your hostel which bus goes to The Esplanade.
