Chalee Kader, BK Magazine’s Top Tables Chef of the Year for 2023, has started the new year with another venture. The beloved Mickey’s Diner has received a stylish upgrade. Kader currently operates 100 Mahaseth, Wana Yook, Mahaniyom Cocktail Bar, and Fran’s. 
Making its new debut at the Amarin Gaysorn on Jan 20th, the venue is more spacious than their previous location at the Portico building, with an added outdoor seating area. This time-warped beauty blends an old-school American diner with a modern twist on the 50s and 60s interiors. There’s a combination of forest green booths, strobe lights on the shelves, stainless steel walls, and distinct chess-board style floor tiles. You can’t miss the open kitchen, and there’s even an old-school style record player and jukebox. 
The menu is inspired by Kader’s time spent in San Francisco and eschews trend-focused, aesthetically pleasing Instagram brunch. Still, it brings out the classics with fried chicken and waffles (B513), Mickey’s breakfast (B363) with Canadian bacon, sunny-side-up eggs, homemade fries, pork sausage patty, and pancake. There’s also their signature AFR School Cafeteria, with American fried rice, fried chicken, pepper sausage, ham, and fried egg (B385). Wash it all down with a vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, or Oreo milkshake. 
This all-day eatery is open from dawn to dusk. So, if you’re jonesing for some Americana, pay Mickey’s Diner a visit to get that movie date of your dreams feeling.
