New Food Stalls at The Avenue

Recommended Posts

Always have chicken noodles late lunch in there after cinema in the avenue. Very good place and there is a stall that does superb smoothies.

The Avenue shopping plaza on 2nd Road has recently expanded its possibilities for dining.  It's added some food stalls and  open-air serving area in the "courtyard" of the ground level. There are also stalls, tables and chairs in a covered area on the second level. It's hardly worth a trip to The Avenue as there are similar setups all over town offering the same food.  But if you live or stay nearby or visit The Avenue for the movie theater, gym or shopping at Villa Market, it could be an option. I don't know if the whole ground level food area has a collective name.  I saw a sign in one section that said, "The Avenue Garden Cafe," but I don't know if that applies to all the sections.


The other night I tried the creamy version of tom yum goong, a hot and sour shrimp and seafood soup that typifies Thai flavor for many farang because of the lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime leaves and tamarind paste used in the soup. I also had a fried rice with squid for 60 baht.  The soup cost 150 baht for a large bowl.  Both were quite good.  A small can of iced tea cost 30 baht and bottled beer was available at 60 or 70 baht, depending on the brand.




Most of the Thai standards are available from one stall or another.  You can order in two ways: 1) pick out what you want at a stall and they'll  carry it to a table; or 2) sit down, order a drink and ask to see a menu.  The lady who takes you drink order will then send someone from the stalls  with a food menu. One pay the food and drink bills separately as soon as the order arrives at the table.


I was there about 8.00 p.m. and the roast had gotten really thin by then. 


There's also live music, which for once wasn't too loud.

I wouldn't want to sit there during the heat of the day.  At 8.00 p.m., it was still warm and humid outdoors. I'll try some of the other dishes on offer, but I'll take them home with me to east in air-conditioned comfort.  I believe the food stalls begin to shut down around 9.00 p.m., although that can vary according to the day and crowd. The serving of beer and other beverages, as the live music, continue until about midnight. The second-level food stalls start closing up at 7.00 p.m.

There are a number of other options for dining and drinking at The Avenue.  Pizza Pizza is no more and has been replaced by Sergio's Pizza Factory after a couple of brief closures for remodeling.


It's a bit tricky because I recall seeing the Sergio's logo above the pizza ovens when it was still Pizza Pizza by Yanee.  This is their current offer:


Basically, you are paying 269 baht for a Margherita pizza, salad and beverage.  The Margherita pizzas weren't bad at all in the restaurant's previous incarnation and cost only 79 baht.



I hope they revive that special offer.



The Avenue has several other dining options as well, ranging from a 24/7 McDonalds through the Robin Hood Tavern, Beer Fest, Firepork, Oishi  Diner's Express, a Chinese restaurant and a couple more. There's also a Starbucks with a strong and fast free wifi.  Most of these restaurants have already been reviewed elsewhere in this section.  Depending on your taste in food,  a couple of them could be worth a special visit.  Parking is readily available at The Avenue.

The rear covered section of the shopping plaza remains empty after the stalls were recently booted. Maybe this sign tells what is underway?


Very little of the enclosed retail space is occupied, especially on the second and third levels.

The Food Court in the rear section of The Avenue has been open a couple of weeks now, but it doesn't appear to be off to a rousing start.  It's total space is huge, probably bigger than the food court at Central Festival, but I never seen more than a handful of customers when I passed by, whether morning, afternoon of evening.  It's open between 10 a.m. and 10.00 p.m.





The food on offer is what you'd expect at a Thai food court, mostly inexpensive Thai dishes, but at least one vendor offer Western-style spaghetti.




I've eaten there twice and wasn't impressed with the food, not at all.  I had the boat noodles with beef at 55 baht ...


and the fried rice with pork, also 55 baht.



Both I would rank at mediocre as best.  Boat noodles are supposed to have a strong, rich flavor due to the pig's blood and various herbs and spices used in the soup, but the bowl I had was very bland.  It tasted like instant noodles out of a package.  The fried rice was almost flavorless and quite oily with very little pork.  I make better at home myself. The small food stalls that had previously occupied the rear section of The Avenue were much better, as are the stall in the open-air mid-section.

Bottom line:  Unless things improve dramatically,  I won't be back.
