This is the Hawaiian diner experience dressed up for Emquartier, the posh new shopping mall on Sukhumvit Road. Deep-fried chicken pieces with a pepper dipping sauce and something mayonnaise-y that wasn’t memorable. As if the carb count wasn’t high enough, it’s emphasized with not one but two carbs. Our meal came with rice and French fries. AJ and I ordered Chicken teriyaki and Japanese curry chicken. The curry sauce tasted like it came out of a box. Don’t misunderstand me; I do like diner food–it’s a food group unto itself. Except when the prices aren’t diner-style. The average dish was Baht 200 each. The dessert alone was worth the trip to disappointment. We had the Tropicana, a crisp pancake (like a waffle without the holes) topped with a tower of whipped cream and served with fresh fruit, vanilla ice cream, and raspberry coulis. This is not the kind of place to go if you’re on a low-carb, low-fat, low sugar diet.
