Food Journey: lunch at Lapin Cafe, Chiangmai, Thailand


I have been busy and away from blogosphere a lot during the pass couple of months since I decided to become an entrepreneur. It took a lot of energy to be a full time owner of my own business which is handmade phone case business. Of course, there will be a post about my business start up journey coming up soon. Now all the tasks of setting up my own business are done. I think it is time that I fully come back to the blogosphere. So, I thought why not start with something new. Has anyone noticed  that I have just revamped my blog with this new look? Love it?

Let's  move on to what I plan to share with you today. It has been a while since the last time I took you with me on my gastronomic trip.  Let's visit Lapin Cafe, one of my favourite  restaurants in my hometown, Chiangmai. Last year, I have blogged about Lapin Cafe a little bit, when tumblr was used as my main blog. I have kept postponing writing about this restaurant Although it is my favourite restaurant that I most visit.   You might be wondering that why I have not written a lot about Lapin Cafe. In fact, I have not actually written a blog post dedicated entirely to Lapin cafe because I did not have any good picture of either the food nor the place. I usually visit Lapin Cafe during evening time so there was not mush light for photo taking. Finally, last week, I had a chance to have lunch at Lapin Cafe. Finally, natural light for my photo!

Pizza at Lapin Cafe, Chiangmai, Thailand

Pizza (half mediterranean and half spinach)

I would like to begin with a very classic dish, pizza. I love the pizza crust at Lapin Cafe very much. If you love thin crust pizza with crispy edge, you will love the pizzas here. This size is not too big and not too small (approx. 9 inch diametre). I would say it is a good size for one or two person. However, in Thailand, it is common to order      serval dishes to share so that everyone get to eat everything.   It Mediterranean is my favourite pizza topping here at Lapin cafe. Mediterranean pizza at Lapin cafe is rich in flavour of anchovy and sun-dried tomato complementing with the spiciness of chillies. At Lapin cafe, customers also have option to order 2 pizzas in one. This time I ordered half mediterranean  for me and half spinach for my son. Yummy!

Anchiovy Cream Cheese Bread at Lapin Cafe, Chiangmai, Thailand

Anchovy cream cheese Bread

This is another new dish that was just added to the restaurant menu. I love anchovies so the combination of cream cheese and anchovies caught my attention. After having the first bite, it was delicious. 

Clam at Lapin Cafe, Chiangmai, Thailand

Garlic clams with sliced warm baguette

This dish is for clam lovers. Everyone in my family loves clams. We were not hesitate to try when this dish was first added to the restaurant's menu. Sautéed clams with garlic topped with grated parmesan is such a great dish to start this wonderful meal with my family. This was the first dish that served on that day.

Sometimes my friends and I choose to sit outside at the area near the restaurant's courtyard when the weather is nice and cool. This is our favourite hangout spot.
