Fine dining at the Shell gas station in Bangkok

picture-039_800x600.jpgThailand is a funny place when it comes to the marketing and selling of products. Every square inch of pavement is used to sell food, clothes, trinkets and whatever else you can think of. Most of the shops and retail stores will close between 5pm-9pm and when they do a new shop will open.

Vendors will fill up the doorways and sidewalks of the existing shop to sell their wares…vendor space is at a premium. In Bangkok on one street vendors switch out every 4 hours or so all night long. You think they are closing up the street market for the night when a whole new load of vendors descends on the area and sets up all new wares.

Then you have places like the Shell gas station above…closed around 5pm and the restaurant moved right in. Complete with bar, kitchen, candles on the table, and music to set the mood. If you are ever in Bangkok and you’re looking for that perfect place for a romantic candle lit dinner I would highly recommend you search out the Shell gas station and fine dining establishment it will really set the mood and wow your significant other. I don’t however recommend being seated at the tables closest to the pumps for obvious reasons….Bon Appetit!
