Sunny Bangkok can take a turn for the soggier faster than you can duck into a cafe for cover. When I sat down at Little Spoon I was a bit damp but fared better than most. Thai rain attacks from all angles - even upwards. The unfortunate were stuck outside, caught like laundry in a violent rinse cycle. I patted myself dry while waiting for my latte and blueberry cream cake to arrive.
Little Spoon looks like a small piece of Tokyo with its whitewashed walls, wooden furniture and cutesie decoration. A peek at their menu revealed some savory items such as curry rice, etc. I was more than happy to stay on the sweeter side of the menu.
The Tokyo cutesie-poo-ness extended all the way to the spoon.
I didn't wait in vain. The cream cake was better than expected. I always worry that Jap-style cakes will be on the dull side, but this is Bangkok so perhaps they zest them up a bit.
All in all, a very nice place to wait out a monsoon and a needed respite from all the street food I've been eating. By my last latte sip, the sky had already begun to clear.Sukhumvit 21 soi 3 (Asok)
