It's 'Petite' for quick lunches, but mind the sweets!
Relaxing and warm, Petite Audrey is indeed little, so the office workers and other folks who love Euro-Thai fusion food have no trouble filling it at mealtimes. This is the sister of the Audrey Cafe & Bistro on Soi Thonglor, and both are run by celebrated sisters Janista “Bam” and Chayada “Bo” Liewchalermwong.
Set out in black and white like a French “vintage contemporary” house, it has a serene living room and a refreshing garden, with seating for 85 split between them. Glass walls surround comfy earth-tone sofas and wooden chairs and tables, sharing the view as well.
“With the smaller scale, the living room and the shady garden, we want customers to feel like they’re sitting at home,” says Suthatip Petchkorn, in charge of sales and marketing.
Of course these diners have to get back to work, and usually in a hurry, so there are more than a hundred eat-and-go dishes on offer, from appetisers and mains to desserts and healthy drinks, all made with trusted ingredients. The most popular include Five-hour Braised Beef Cheek served with pasta and Grilled Butter-crusted Pork Chop with brandy gravy.
The little branch has its own Absolute Siam selection. The Bt190 Spicy Fried Rice & Crispy Pork Knuckle with chillies and basil comes with soup and the German-style pork is cubed. There’s a smoked-salmon salad with thick sesame dressing for Bt220, and the Say Cheese for Bt130 – deep-fried mashed potatoes served with melted cheddar cheese.
Freshen up with a Mojito Mocktail for Bt110. It could be accompanied by delectable sweets like the Thai Tea Crepe Cake for Bt110, a Coffee Waffle with vanilla ice cream for Bt165, a Red Velvet White Chocolate Cheesecake or a French Profiterole served with hot chocolate fudge and vanilla ice cream.
<< Petite Audrey is on the fourth floor of Siam Center and open daily from 10 to 10.
