Mr Jones' Orphanage

On the second night of my weekend BKK trip with Laurie last December, we were deciding between going to Mr Jones Orphanage or the highly raved Thip Samai Restaurant. However, since we were still so full from our late lunch at ร้านอาหารอีสานร่มเย็น and we just had mango sticky rice nearby, we decided to go with the former option.

We did not know that it will be quite a long walk from Thong Lor BTS to Seen Space. We were carrying so many loots and thought that we should cab instead. When we arrived at the cafe, Laurie was not feeling so well so she decided to sleep for a bit while I began snapping shots of the cafe. The cafe looks very magical, especially since it was nearing Christmas at that time. The interior of cafe looks like a house as the cake display is located at the “Kitchen”, while the other side of the cafe is the dining area for the customers. There is stairs leading to the dining area at the second floor. I do not recommend tall people to head up as even a petite lady like me had to crawl while walking from couch to couch and snapping shots of the dangling decorations and swinging teddy bears and wooden horses. The space upstairs is catered to children 5 ft and under. The server was relatively patient with us as we took a very long time to place our orders and they did not mind Laurie napping as well.

When Laurie was done with her powernap, she woke up the minute the Kit Kat Cake and Cold Bubble Gum Infused Milk were served. She then constantly made many different arrangements of the food items and decorations and snap shots of it, #lifeofafoodiephotographer exactly!  We were really very disappointed with the Kit Kat Cake. I felt that the cake was not well mixed and it was so dense that only after a mouthful of it, I could not take it anymore. Laurie stated that it could be one of those pre-mixed cake mixture that they used for their cakes. We did not managed to finish even half of the cake. I felt like puking after tasting the horrible cake but thanks to the Cold Bubble Gum Infused Milk, I felt so much better. It helped to cleanse my palate and added sweetness to my night. The Kit Kat Cake & Cold Bubble Gum Infused Milk costs 140 baht (CAD$5.40 / SGD$5.93 / USD$4.30) & 50 baht (CAD$1.93 / SGD$2.12 / USD$1.54) respectively. As usual, food and beverages served at cafes will definitely be more expensive than the local food. The cake was totally not worth the amount, while the milk though decent is still a little expensive. This is because everything served follows the theme of an orphanage and a home. The Kit Kat Cake is decorated with lots of coloured M&Ms chocolates and the infused milk is served in different coloured/flavoured milk and in adorable glasses so as to appeal to the children.
