As you may know, CentralWorld is one of the biggest shopping malls in Bangkok. This mall has hundreds of restaurants inside, and has become a great meeting place for teenagers and also adults. Comparing to the street food outside the mall, the restaurants in the mall are expensive.
Today I am going to recommend you a place where you can have delicious food in cheap price in CentralWorld. Yes, I am going to take you to Flavor Foodcourt, a CentralWorld food court.
Well, to not disappoint you, I have to tell you first that ‘cheap’ means cheaper than eating at the other restaurants in the mall, but it definitely does not cheaper than eating at street food stalls outside the mall. Well, let’s say under 100 baht per meal per person is possible.
Flavor Foodcourt is located at 7th floor of the mall, and it is hidden behind Central Food Hall. I won’t be surprised if you have visited the mall several times, but you do not know that this food court exists.
Go up to the 7th floor, and try to find the Central Food Hall which is next to the cinema. Then, you have to walk pass the salad bar and several booths. You will finally see the sign to the food court. Just follow the sign. Keep walking.
When you eat at many food courts in Bangkok, the first thing that you have to do is to exchange your money with a card or coupons. But this food court is different. You pay later. When you walk into the food court, you will automatically get a postpaid card. The card has credit up to 1,000 baht. Then, you will present the card when you order anything. And, you will make a payment at the check-out area by presenting this card. Please bear in mind that if you lose the card, you are likely to pay 1,000 baht for it.
The food court is quite big and clean. You can definitely find Thai foods and also Asian foods here. I think it is a great place for tourist, who do not know Thai, to try Thai food because the menu is written in both Thai and English.
You may choose to sit at a window seat where you can have a nice city view. It is a food court that I often see people working or reading a book. Another food court in Bangkok that gives you a great view is Emporium Food Hall.
