Bangkok Trading Post
This could be Phrom Phong's hippest brunch spot.
137 Pillar Suites, the luxurious new 34-suite hotel by Chiang Mai’s boutique resort 137 Pillars House, has opened with a hip all-day-dining cafe in front called Bangkok Trading Post.
The original owner of the Chiang Mai property worked for the East Borneo Trading Company (1856-1960), from which this Bangkok restaurant takes inspiration, playing around with Colonial-style tiles and old-school explorers' equipment—compasses, reflectors and field chairs—amid high ceilings, wood and marble.
In addition to baked items and sandwiches from the deli counter, you can also find international comfort dishes, namely Thai congee (B110), farmer’s omelet (Spanish-style pan omelet with boerewors sausage, goat cheese and roasted pimiento pepper, B290), tuna tataki salad (B240), pasta (from B280) and pizza (from B290). Don’t miss their one-of-a-kind purple sweet potato cake, either.
