Little Bitch

Average: 1 (1 vote)

Little Bitch just celebrated their first birthday and it’s kind of refreshing to know that a chic cafe and restaurant can survive on Vibhavadi Rangsit Rd., which is normally short on such places. Set in a large house, this spot right at the beginning of the northbound highway is nice and cozy, with a sizeable garden, and a certain charm to it. With its orange-brown theme, the house is filled with 60s-style items like wooden chairs, benches and sofas which, though hardly unique, do make for pleasant surroundings. But despite this, the staff have sadly got a lot to learn about both service and cooking. The oversized menus are amusing with their large fonts and pictures suitable for the sight-impaired, but even they don’t hint at the culinary disaster that awaits. Many of the dishes look good in print, and even on the plate, but fall hopelessly flat in taste. The hoi malang phu pad cha (New Zealand mussels with fried spicy herbs, B180) initially appear a real treat, but instead the decently-sized molluscs fail on accord of the bland topping. The only flavor to really emerge is an ever-so-slightly salty one. The plaa salmon (spicy salmon salad, B160) is a bunch of chopped cabbage mixed with chunks of salmon, leaving us to wonder where the lemongrass, shallots and mint got to. Oh, but it is drenched in lime. The other dishes leave even less of an impression: the spaghetti pla kem (spaghetti with salted fish, B150) is another bland-tasting looker and the goong foo (crispy fried prawns with spicy dressing, B180) is way too floury. The rich and flavorsome gaeng phed ped yang (roast duck curry, B160) may be a saving grace, but it’s simply not enough. This Little Bitch has some serious growing up to do in the kitchen.
