Fans of Siwilai Cafe now have two locations to choose from

The opening of Central: The Original Store, a trendy new-old retail and cultural hub for Chareonkrung's artsy, hipster crowd, brought with it the second branch of the popular Siwilai Cafe. At the new Chareonkrung location, a grand piano takes centre stage as diner-style seating line the edge of the room. It's been evident since the Central Embassy flagship that Siwilai embraces Thai culture from the past to the present, presenting creations in a contemporary manner that doesn't forget the classic roots of the artforms. Like the original branch, the cafe transforms into a sound bar at night, placing importance on music with a custom OJAS sound system. Accompanied by cocktails named after legendary artists, neon signs and classic vinyls on display, the atmosphere is a chill mix of yesteryear and the modern.

During the day, Siwilai Cafe at Central: The Oriignal Store is focused on beloved Thai breakfast dishes as well as international favourites like French Toast, offering a wide range of options crafted from the finest, locally-sourced ingredients. Some of the menu highlights include the Truffle Cheese Toast, a divine grilled cheese sandwich with pennywort pesto, and the Shallow Pan Eggs, fried eggs with Southern Thai-style crispy pork belly and tomato sauce served with toast. For lovers of Thai-Chinese classics, the Hainan Chicken Rice and Hainan Noodle Soup are highly recommended. Meanwhile, pasta lovers can't miss the glorious Fusilli Vodka Sauce—fusilli with fresh tomato cream sauce, garlic and parmesan. For dessert, the Banana Khao Mao Chocolate Tart, a chocolate tart with banana ice cream and unripe green rice is hard not to love.
