Fellow Bangkokians, what was your favorite childhood restaurant? We’re going to assume it was S&P, because that was definitely our restaurant of choice for years.
Now that we’ve grown up (a bit), we long for that innocent time when our parents picked up the cheque and dessert didn’t come with a side of guilt. We want that home-cooked feeling in a modern space; a hip restaurant with soul.
Introducing SNP/HQ, the new grown-up addition to the S&P culinary empire on Petchburi. With an additional branch called SNP/CAFE at FYI Center, it offers a modern twist on classic Thai recipes, all in a stylish setting that’ll warrant many a heart eye emoji when it appears on your IG.
This new comfort food cafe is situated on the ground floor of Italthai Tower on Petchburi Road.
We sampled Fried Taco Spring Rolls – a perfect combination of Thai and Mexican flavors before we happily dug into Garlic Fried Rice generously topped with grilled salmon. The Penne Carbonara with Salted Egg Yolk was a delicious mix of salty and creamy.
Zucchini Noodles with Grilled Salmon and Pesto Cream Sauce smothered in garlicky pesto didn’t make us miss carbs at all. Scrumptious Linguine Pasta with Grilled Salmon in Tom Yum Sauce and Crab Meat Pad Thai piled high with crab and crispy shrimp, offered Thai spice with a twist.
S&P is famous for baked goods – especially buttercream cakes – so naturally SNP/HQ is taking their sweet selection up a notch.
The state-of-the-art Baking Lab makes “fresh baked” sound like an understatement. Check out the scheduled baking times, announced daily. The Cake Studio offers a huge window display showcasing the magnificent cakes and allowing diners to watch pastry pros in action. Place an order and choose from an array of intricate, hand-made floral designs.
SNP/HQ also offers modern Thai sweets like Grass Jelly with Thai Milk Tea Snow Ice. You’ll need a coffee with that sweet treat. Choose from nitrogen cold brews, single origin beans, and rich espresso drinks.
SNP/HQ has yoga class every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and a cake and pastry workshop every month. Find out more about SNP/HQ here.
Open: 7am – 9pm daily
Where: SNP/HQ is located at Italthai Tower at the top of Petchaburi Soi 38/1, close to BTS Phrom Phong Station or MRT Petchburi Station. SNP/CAFE is at FYI Center (MRT Queen Sirikit Station).
