Celebrated my husband’s birthday in Bangkok, Thailand. We went for Thai fine dining at Bo.lan.
Amazing authentic Thai food with detailed taste and great ambience.

We did not realised how difficult it was to get a taxi in Bangkok. Last time I was there was 3 years ago. So much has changed. We made the reservation at 7pm but reached only 7.45pm. Of course, we made a call to inform.
Once we reached, we were asked to be seated first while they prepare the table for us. They served lemongrass drink while we were waiting. Delicious and I hope to find lemongrass seeds in Hong Kong. Hope to plant them at home and make fresh lemongrass drink in future.
The chef would invite guests to the kitchen for tasting. It was a delightful surprise to see the chef and all the staff in the kitchen. I did not take any picture because it might be rude.
Anyway, we were served whisky and a spray for our tongues. I guess it was was refreshing purpose.
