Eggs Benedict, French Toast, Huevos Rancheros and Plenty More in Bangkok

Something as simple as the egg has been taken to new heights in Bangkok. At Gastro 1/6, they are served with Iberian ham or Tasmanian salmon, while La Monita Taqueria scrambles them and puts them in a tortilla with guacamole, chorizo, and salsa in Bangkok's finest breakfast burrito, and Roast Cafe does them with duck hash browns, while Tribeca RestoBar goes all out and serves them with glazed pork belly and pancakes! If you don't want eggs, that can be managed too. Another first in Bangkok, the Bangkok Bagel Bakery does real New York bagels served as sandwiches or with cream cheese smears. Nearby Chu specializes in pancakes with imported blueberries or French toast with real maple syrup, not to mention making the best cup of hot chocolate in town. For a meal that covers every cuisine in the morning, Crepes and Co, while mainly a Mediterranean focused eatery, also does their crepes with Thai curries and all sorts of other regional delights, Many of these breakfast niches feature nice gardens or cozy furniture, but if their menus and surroundings are a bit too highbrow, well we will even point you in the direction of the lunch counter at Took Lae Dee, which serves the good old egg exactly as a good old egg, and has the cheapest breakfast prices in town, without sacrificing taste.
