Spent some time bonding with Bangkok Market, which I love for many reasons that I will now share with you.
Bangkok's exterior blends with the warehouse surroundings, but inside it's as much a visual feast as a culinary one. Owners Camille and Pornchai Rajbundit opened Bangkok in a space on Powell Avenue once occupied by a design business, which you can see in the coordinated finishes and attractive design of the layout.
The freezer section is stocked with nice-quality fish, seafood and poultry; traditional ingredients like pandan leaves, black Silkie chickens, and frozen coconut in various formats plus extras like Indian naans and parathas. The shelves and doors are spotless, and the stock is well-merchandised and replenished often.
Groceries and merchandised on pretty shelving. The Rajbundits are savvy merchandisers, so there are also a few non-Thai and non-food goodies, like the frozen Indian breads, single-press maple syrup, cookware and gifts. (Full disclosure: the Rajbundit and Wood girls attend school together.)
Bangkok been open about a year — Yelp's loving it, and so is Lannae. Have you been? What treasure did you discover there?
