D’ark Cafe – D’ Best Artisanal Coffeeshop in Bangkok?
Located on the first floor of the same building as Organika, D’ark Café lure throngs of office workers with their delicious coffee. D’ark café is run and managed by Phillip Di Bella who is also the owner of Di Bella Coffee. Phillip is one of Australia’s most well-known philanthropists and entrepreneurs.
If you’re a coffee person (I’m not), then this is a place you have to visit. D’ark is pretty serious when it comes to coffee. Turn your eyes to the coffee section on the menu and you’ll know why. D’ark tells you the country where the beans are from, how they processed it, the acidity, the fragrance, the roast and the body. All the blends featured were customized by Phillip De Bella himself. In total, D’ark offers patrons 4 kinds of single origin beans and 3 types of blends. Pretty elaborate for a cup of joe, if you ask me. If you’re adventurous, you can even get the friendly baristas to assist you in creating your own custom cup of coffee by cherry-picking everything from the beans down to the kind of milk. Pretty intense.
Besides their dedication to coffee, D’ark café also boasts a versatile menu that comprises brunch, dinner, 3-course meals, snacks, and dessert options. The café also has 2 levels so you can decide where you’ll like to sit.
We ordered the English Cocotte (350THB) and Banana Pancakes (240THB) to fill our stomachs. The English Cocotte is an ensemble of cumberland sausage, baked organic free-range egg, baked beans, roasted cherry tomato, eryngii and shimeiji mushrooms. Overall, the ingredients are general crowd pleasers so it’s quite hard to go wrong with this dish. Also, the portion is quite generous, in my opinion.
The banana pancakes were quite self-explanatory. It’s basically banana pancakes, whipped cream, salted caramel sauce and banana slices arranged beautifully on a plate. The salted caramel sauce comes serves in a separate small saucer. For about 10SGD, you get 3 pancakes with banana slices. The pancakes were quite thick and dense, so you might be disappointed if you’re looking for light fluffy pancakes. I’m more of a waffles guy so this wasn’t really my thing. If you’re a pancake guy or gal, this might be worth running another 2km for.
For drinks, we ordered the Cappucino and Matcha Latte. I liked the latte art on both of the drinks but we weren’t really impressed by the taste and aroma of the beverages though. Perhaps, we should have gone for the more exquisite offerings.
Tthe café is a great place for those looking for a quiet spot to do some reading. The food wasn’t bad by any means, but it didn’t impress. If you’re looking for a meal, I’ll recommend heading up to Organika on the 6th floor. The prices are somewhat similar, and the view up there is a thousand times better. If you’re looking for a solid cup of coffee, this might just be the place for you.
