Bangkok’s OG Thai chocolate masters have opened a new spot at Velaa shopping center in Langsuan, the latest for this cacao brand now with four very different outlets in Bangkok.
Found behind the garden area of Velaa and featuring walls lined with their famous chocolates, the new space in the glittering, hotel-heavy area of Bangkok will feature a menu only at this spot.
In addition to bites and oh-so chocolatey drinks, the new spot features chocolate cacao cocktails and mocktails, as well as a small selection of wines. Peruse the chocolatier, grab a drink, or just pick up some bars to snaffle at home.
Kad Kokoa’s founders Nuttaya and Paniti Junhasavasdikul first kicked off in Sathorn’s bean-to-bar chocolate cafe, Kad Kokoa, then spreading to 31 Degrees by Kad Kokoa as they teamed up with young chefs from Bocuse d’Or Thailand. Their last outing before Velaa came at Kad Kokoa Chocolate Café on Soi 24.
After studying the art of bean grading in the US, the two owners began growing their own beans at a private estate, and have hence been the first name that comes to mind when it comes to single origin cacao in Bangkok—even dipping their toes in the realm of spirits.
87, C115, Langsuan Soi 1. Open daily 11am-8pm.
