Leo Laksi’s Bangkok And Back

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

Bangkok backyard – J Avenue Home Boy

with 4 comments

If you follow my blog you know that I live in the J Avenue area.  I was lucky the month I moved from Soi Lang Suan to Thonglor.  J Avenue opened.  J Avenue is known as a haunt of celebrities, trendy customers and expats.  All of that is true.  What it should be known for is its diverse restaurant choices.  From Greyhound and Ootoya for dinner to iBerry for desserts to Au Bon Pain for coffee, it’s all there.  But there’s more, there are a number of Japanese restaurants on the second floor as well as Chine Chine, a very good Chinese restaurant.  There’s even a new McDonalds.  And next door is An Lao Lao, a Chinese restaurant that specializes in Beijing Duck.

But the best thing about J Avenue is that it is a laidback vantage point to sip an espresso and people watch.  From hoity-toity types to actresses, poseurs to students, it’s all happening.

J Avenue is located at the corner of Thonglor and Soi 15.

  4. Not quite BH. More like inner city affluent. Where lots of condos are selling for 500,000 USD and some houses are 10,000,000 USD.
