Chikalicious Dessert Bar Bangkok is a must for all fans of sweet treats. Using fine-dining culinary techniques, this bar serves refined cakes, tarts, sorbets and ice creams – all made in house by talented patisserie chefs. Certainly, it’s the only place in Bangkok to offer a three-course dessert with wine pairing, freshly prepared in front of your eyes.
Chickalicious Dessert Bar is located on the fifth floor of Central Embassy Shopping Mall in Chidlom. It is easy to get there via public transport as the BTS Skytrain has direct access from both Ploenchit and Chit Lom Station. This is the brand’s third establishment after New York and Tokyo.
Taking dessert to a new level of sophistication, the attention to detail at Chikalicious will surely impress the most particular cake lovers, with Bunsen burners, ladles, carving knives and spoons of various sizes being used to craft beautiful desserts that are as pretty as they are delicious.
With a shop front of floor to-ceiling-windows and a cool white on marble interior, the style of Chikalicious Bangkok can be described as urban chic, with plenty of sepia images of Manhattan for that touch of New York. Diners can choose to sit at the bar and watch the talented chefs in action, or take a booth for a more secluded setting.
The menu at Chikalicious Dessert Bar Bangkok is concise, with five ‘main’ desserts chosen for the fixed-price, three-course menu, along with seasonal specials and a handful of pastries. Certainly, you should try the three course set to get the real experience – consisting of an amuse bouche, main, and petit four chocolate to finish – with some interesting dishes to choose from.
The panna cotta with strawberry sorbet, paired with a glass of bubbly moscato D’asti is a firm favourite here, closely followed by the warm chocolate tart with peppercorn ice cream and red wine sauce, paired with a glass of mellow tawny port. What most impresses is the distinct flavour of each ingredient, and the painstaking balance that is achieved. For example, the sorbets created are full of pure fresh fruit, such as in the panna cotta dish or in the caramel soup with apple sorbet and warm biscuit dish. The cost of the three-course set is 400 baht, with the optional wine pairing costing an additional 250 baht.
Chikalicious Dessert Bar in Bangkok is a fancy place to treat your sweet tooth; a little extravagant, but sometimes that is just what you want.
