After You Cafe | Must Visit Cafes In Bangkok
So, last week I did the unthinkable. I went to Krabi, Bangkok and back to Krabi again. The whole trip was 9 days in total. From island hopping to cafes hopping in the city, I did them all. So, I thought why not start a mini series on Must Visit Cafes In Bangkok. I'll start with the first cafe that I visited, which was After You Cafe.
My friend Sharlene was the mastermind behind the cafe hunt in Bangkok and gosh was I surprised at how beautifully decorated Bangkok cafes are. We took the BTS train (140 THB - whole day pass) and Uber (40 THB) to this cafe. FYI guys, Uber in Bangkok is super cheap. Remember to take advantage of it as you might encounter sneaky taxi men (Don't make the same mistake as I did, I was actually conned by a taxi driver. Will elaborate more of that story on another blogpost).
Back to the infamous After You Cafe which they are famous for their Kakigori (Ice Dessert) and Shibuya Honey Toast. Since I'm on a diet, I only ordered an Ice Mochaccino for a wake me up. Kishya and Sharlene got After You Cafe new Kakigori edition which is Mango Sticky Rice.
The cafe have a very homey vibe with the wood themed furniture, walls and shelves. I love how they used the barley dried up plant as decorations at the corner along with selling their cute stationary/merchandises. But mind you, it's a bit pricey as compare to typical food in Thailand. The Kakigori cost 265 THB and my Mochaccino cost me 135 THB. That's typical price of cafe food in Malaysia. At least their tax and service charge are already included from the prices shown on the menu.
 
There is nothing to shout about for my drink but their Kakigori is hands-down AMAZING. Visually it's stunning as it looks like something you would see from an anime, it just looks so cartoony with the cream looking like clouds dangling on the smooth ice. Usually most Kakigori I notice the Ice is dry and rough looking but this was just perfect.
Thanks to the girls I got to steal a few bites. haha. Surprisingly it wasn't as sweet as I expected. They actually have extra mango syrup and I think milk on the side if you need an extra sugar rush for your dessert. But by it's own without putting the extra add ons was perfect.

The best part was reaching to the end of the bowl as there was real mango cut out cubes and sticky rice. After all this Kakigori is called Mango sticky rice. It may look small at first but I think you would need at least 3 people to finish it as the serving is quite generous with a lot of mango cubes and sticky rice at the bottom.
By the way, I know that this is super random but everytime when you visit a cafe in Bangkok, make sure to visit their toilets. After going to four cafes in Bangkok within a day, I realise that all their toilets had a themed. From minimalist to black marble themed. Anyways check it out on your own to understand what I mean. One last thing before I forget, the staff there are incredibly helpful. I needed a place to charge my phone, instead of showing me where the power socket was, they loan me their powerbank. I felt so touched because who would wanna lend their powerbank to a total stranger?!
