tops supermarket – silom complex
i’ve got to give it props. at first glance, it looks mildly pathetic, hidden in some far off corner in the basement of silom complex. but for it’s size, the ready to eat selection is pretty decent.
seriously. it’s i actually fancy it more than the emporium/paragon gourmet market or the central food hall at chidlom.
the supermarket-y stuff is all pretty standard, plus it’s got like the standard better cuts of meat you find at the aforementioned, and a pathetic little import foods corner. but the hilight of it is the area right infront the checkout stands. there’s a bunch of little stands with ready to eat food from a bunch of restaurants.
there’s a little mexican stand, by el charro. beef chimichangas for B45 each. and they give you fresh salsa and nachos with it. usually when you but el charro stuff it’s pre-packed and located in the chilled foods section. the stand makes it much nicer because of the little perks.
they have a novotel stand, which is pretty standard, good selection of pastries for only B20 after 8pm. love the little fruit tartlets and cherry danish pastry.
also, a vietnamese/pho stand, another cake thing. i forget. was obsessing over delicious fruits. cherries, kiwis, mangosteens.
basically, i like the supermarket, it’s small and i can do my rounds fairly quickly, get in and out fast, and have a decent selection of already prepared foods. though the prepared foods by tops itself sucks.
good for city living, convenient, the bts is linked right into silom complex too.
