A Chinatown dessert bar has entered the bustling Thonglor ‘hood with a bigger menu that adds savory items to the mix.

Set in a bigger space than its forebearer in Chinatown, Ba Hao Tian Mi’s newest branch features the same sort of granite-topped and soft-curved interiors that evoke the Chinese diaspora.

The menu, meanwhile, offers a plethora of dishes that span flavors from Hong Kong, Singapore,and Taiwan. Think spicy chili crab with deep-fried pumpkin mantou (THB348), Taiwanese coffin bread mushroom chowder (fried bread with Taiwanese-inspired mushroom cream, THB168), and the ultra-filling BHTM brunch set (THB249), a Chinese-style brunch featuring scrambled eggs, fried pork cubes, Chinese sausage, salad, and bread with homemade butter.

For sweets, the shop sells the same signature puddings you would find in Chinatown but with some exclusive flavors that rotate monthly, like a soy milk-based fruit salad topped with fresh, seasonal fruit (THB168) or a Trang-style kopi-milk tea pudding topped with coffee sauce, whipped cream and a caramel crisp (THB148).

The shop is located near Soi Thonglor 17 and can be reached by motorbike from BTS Thong Lo. During Bangkok’s restriction due to seemingly second wave of COVID-19 infections, it’s open 10:30am to 9pm. Opening hours will be extended at a later date.

Ba Hao Tian Mi is a sister of Ba Hao (meaning “No. 8” in Chinese), the Chinese-themed red neon-lit shophouse in old town’s Soi Nana. The bar offers Chinese-inspired concoctions on the ground floor while its upper floors serve as a boutique hotel.
