Panorama @ Crowne Plaza Bangkok


Lunch buffets at Panorama, the all-day-dining restaurant of Bangkok's Crowne Plaza Hotel, are worth gorging on, even without the promise of a siesta after a heavy meal.


Pile your plate with pork _ there's plenty of cured meat to go around, from prosciutto to mortadella. Garnish with cheese & rocket leaves to make everything look more presentable.


Grilled to order: hog the cooking counter with more pork, in the form of skewers, sausages & chops. Delivered to the table with savory & spicy sauces.


Seafood too: fish, mussels & prawns, tasting as fresh as they should.


Macarons: not magnificent, not marvelous _ merely mediocre. A bit too biscuit-like.


Other desserts fare better: creamy, aromatic tiramisu & crumbly apple crumble.


And all these calories would be well-expended while sight-seeing.


The Reclining Buddha, with an Adam Levine lookalike.


Crossing the Chao Phraya.


Climbing the Wat Arun (only halfway though, before chickening out).

  1. You're in Bangkok? Went for Songkran? Aiyor....better don't eat in hotel when there - same as in any hotel here, I'm sure. I'd go for the awesome authentic Thai cuisine anytime...

    1. Missyblurkit: true, some hotels in neighboring countries serve pork at their buffet outlets but at separate sections from the non-pork dishes. that would be ideal :D
