    Methavalai Sorndaeng Democracy Monument - Near Khao San

    Dining at Methavalai Sorndaeng is a time ward to what Bangkok used to be 50 years ago... Located right at the democracy monunment near Khaosan Road, Methavalai reminds a bit of the Champs Elysées in Paris.

It's so old fashioned it becomes cute and adds the rare experience of dine in the past!
