Mother May I Cafe Review
Looking for a new cafe to explore while you are in Bangkok? Head down to Thong Lo neighbourhood and visit Mother May I Kitchen, a newly-opened establishment that is not only pretty, but also serves pretty good food & desserts! 🙂
Housed in a homey, two-storey glasshouse, Mother May I is another pretty and Instagrammable cafe that you should not miss in Bangkok. So don’t worry about not being able to take great pictures as you will get as much natural sunlight as you want, of course assuming the weather outside is sunny and bright! 🙂
Food-wise, the cafe serves food from traditional Thai with a twist to International cuisines. Thanks to one of their chefs who used to work at a Michelin-starred restaurant back in London, there are many interesting menu items to try at this cafe.
Originally I was only there to try out their desserts but when I saw Massaman curry with chicken and Chantaburi durian on their menu, I just could not help but to order it. Durian is not exactly my kind of dessert, I just wanted to challenge myself to eat something that I do not usually eat! 🙂
Looking at the picture, you would probably wonder – is that a potato or durian?
It was actually an unripe Chantaburi durian that happened to look like a potato!! 🙂 Unlike what you are probably familiar with, these do not taste or smell anything like a durian.
Mind you, the curry is a little bit spicy but if you are a huge durian fan, you can stop by Mother May I Kitchen and try this dish when you are in Bangkok!
If you want to want to order rice, please do yourself a favour and order Berry rice (SGD 3) – healthier version of white rice but still very moist and fragrant 🙂
I managed to try a couple of desserts because that was my whole point of visiting this cafe!
If you can only pick one dessert, then I will highly recommend the Coconut Creme Brulee! Unlike the usual creme brulees, this one was super addictive because of the coconut twist and toasted banana on the side 😉
If you are looking for a local dessert, then try the Thai Sweet and Sour Ice Cream (~SGD 5).
Exactly like how the name described it, this dessert was both sourish and sweet at the same time. The tanginess was quite similar to the taste of tamarind. If you are adventurous with your food or dessert, then do order this when you are here. I assure you it will be quite a unique experience, well at least it was for me 🙂
The other desserts are also worth mentioning because they were highly-addictive and certainly very palatable too. I particularly liked them because they were not too sweet.
After seeing all the pictures, don’t you agree that this cafe is super pretty? Not just the interior but the exterior part is beautiful too!! There are some bean bags outside the restaurant for customers to chill and relax. Coming in the late afternoon is probably the most ideal to avoid the scorching hot weather 🙂
