KERK Bangkok – Go Coco-NUTS with Their Gorgeous Drinks!
The cafe scene in Bangkok doesn’t seem to be slowing down. There seems to be new cafes popping up just about everyday. No matter how many cafes there are, there’s always that one cafe that’s perfect for you and your friends. Despite the vast number of cafes in Bangkok, very few instagram-worthy cafes have managed to successfully incorporate quintessentially Thai ingredients into their food. Well, KERK is certainly one of the few.
KERK’s promises a quick respite from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok’s busy streets. The glass windows on the first floor welcomes enough sunlight so your photos are bound to look amazing. We loved the high ceiling, and white brick walls too. If you’re looking for a conducive space to do work, head to the second level. We didn’t find out what’s on the third level, but tell us if you did!
The first thing that caught our eyes on the menu was the selection of coconut-infused beverages. The colour might be off-putting, but we were assured that the only natural food dyes are used. The Milk in Hot Charcoal (75THB) is essentially a concoction of milk and coffee. We were wondering how the charcoal would taste like, but it’s actually coffee!
The Coconut Kyoto (90THB) and Coconut Butterfly Pea (90THB) came in green and bluish-purple respectively. Both drinks were basically flavoured coconut water with coconut flesh. The former had a tinge of green tea. Beyond the pretty colours, the beverages were rather mediocre. They also offer a other interesting drinks, such as the Frozen Butterfly Pea Beer (160THB).
KERK appears to place more emphasis on beverages than on their savoury and sweet dishes. We tried the Melted Cheese, Croissant and Ham (120THB), which was pretty small for its price point. As with the drinks, the croissant was at best average. The Croissant with Thai Pandan (85THB) features a crisp croissant that’s slathered with an intense green pandan jam that reminded my tastebuds of kaya.
Online reviews raved about the Coconut Cake (90THB), so we picked that out to round off our KERK experience. The texture was light, despite being covered with cream which was filled with strips of coconut flesh. The coconut cake was pretty good but not something I’ll make a special trip for.
There’s nothing much to love about their food and beverages, but there’s everything to love about the beautiful space.
