Well,as I'm deeply into the process of establishing my own pastry shop here in Bangkok,I started to look around for some interesting ideas out there -something that would look and feel out of the ordinary ,you know....
Would like to share with you some of the findings:
One place is called "Le pain au qoutidien".It is actually a place I have found some years ago ,when I was still living in Paris.I remember waking up one day to find a brand new bakery just across the street from where I lived at the time (Rue des Archives,Marais) .This bakery shop turned out to be something of a whole new concept ,much different from the traditional "boulangerie " to be found on every corner around the city.....I guess it owns it's charm greatly to that shared long communal table,right at the center of the shop,where people could sit and enjoy their coffee or meal at the same table with others.
Here is the link to their website:
Another place ,is a food shop called "Melrose&Morgan".Actually, I could only experience it from the "traveling" on the Web....it was mentioned in some kind of a design book,so I just felt the urge to get a better insight.The singularity of this place lies again within it's concept,where instead of the standard counter used for the presentation of the food ,it is an open "live kitchen" that is happening just in front of the clients .
You can have a closer look at that at their website:
Certainly looks different....
Anyone knows other interesting places around? Curious to hear about it...
