With its big bamboo tables ?in black lacquer, glass wall windows with oversized Venetian blinds, and wicker reclining chairs that evoke a seaside holiday spent somewhere near the English Channel circa 1890, the Erawan Tea Room is a classy place to bring the family on the weekends.
But people are not just here for the Tony Chi-designed setting. At 250 baht, the afternoon tea is a great deal, with offerings such as prawn spring rolls, pork satay with peanut sauce, Thai-style curry chicken puff, fish fritters with cucumbers and peanut sauce, mango with sticky rice, banana dumpling in a banana leaf cone, crispy rice pudding with pumpkin, sweet bean paste fruit shapes, crispy sesame rolls, scones with Chiang Mai jam, mini chocolate tart, and coffee or tea.
If that’s too many flavors for one afternoon, there’s an à la carte menu, too, where you can order a plate of seasonal fruit, or banana fritters with ice cream for 190 baht.
