A recent addition to the city’s health and wellness scene, Potion Essential seeks to add superfood to Bangkok’s culinary vocabulary at its Sathorn cafe.

The two-story space caters to cafe-hoppers with colorful accents that contrast its monochromatic setting – bold, bright plates of food, vibrant juices, quotes in purple neon tubing splashed against granite-gray flooring and all-white decor. But Potion Essential is more about food that makes you feel good than eye candy.

Packed with macronutrient-rich ingredients like avocado, quinoa and chickpeas, the menu offers hearty, healthy fare to fuel fast-paced, indulgent urban lifestyles.

Savory favorites include the chicken quinoa salad (THB189), spicy chickpea pumpkin salad (THB189), and avocado, bacon and chickpea toast with balsamic reduction (THB360). If you prefer your toast as dessert, opt for the avocado cacao mousse with passionfruit (THB320).

There are a variety of refreshing, homemade juice options to wash it all down (THB139/bottle), each a different “potion.” The red, for instance, combines watermelon, passionfruit and tomato, while the yellow combines pineapple and celery.

For dessert, there are sugar-free treats like banana muffins (macadamia, almond, or chocolate chip) drizzled with cocoa and made with soy milk (THB80).
