crepes and co and some greek!

crepes and co is actually one of my favourite restaurants to go to on a lazy weekend. i’m normally there for brunch. they’ve got an amazing selection and all the staff there are super friendly. you can choose to sit inside or outside. most of the people that frequent there are expats, i don’t see too many locals. but goddamn the food is good. and i think they have the biggest tea selection in bangkok. mm mm. they have this morrocan mint tea thing, which is excellent, and i love the presentation of it too.

it’s french owned, but they’re having a greek promotion from now till october. looks pretty interesting and i’m definitely gonna go and try it out.

    I’ve been to Crepes & Co once – it was ok. I think the problem I have with it is I feel ripped off paying so much (by Thai standards) for what is in essence flour and water with some topping.
    When I went they had their Moroccan promotion – again it was OK. If anyone knows any good Moroccan restos in bkk (tagine, cous cous etc), let me know!

    You’re right about brunch at crepes and co… it’s bloody good! I had eggs benedict and they were delicious. Plus it’s a nice setting.

    Infact I’m going there today for lunch… and I’ll try that morrocan mint tea. A couple of months ago they were doing a spanish tapas special.

    This is going to sound silly, but I really like the map they’ve got on their website :) I’ll have to swing by and check it out.

    Later… lunch was great and I tried the Moroccan mint tea… you’re right, it’s good and love the tray and teapot with the cute cover thing too :) So, thanks for the recommendation!

    I don’t know about Moroccan mint tea, but there was a really good mint/lemonade slushy thing I had at Vanilla(I think that’s the name of the place, it’s owned/operated by the S&P chain I think). It’s at Playground (you can see it right on Thonglor.) I’d go back for that alone. The spag carbonara I had was not too bad either.

    I would like to buy this writer a few capital letters…

    You would think that the shame of ignorance would keep theses cretins from writing in public.

    and yet, you were still able to grasp what was being talked about – i’m impressed!

    in honour of your comment i’ve intentionally failed to include any capitalisation in mine :)

    i would like to buy this commentor a shred of humility.

    You would hope that anyone with such a vile demeanor would simply have the sense to remain silent.

    I totally agree, well said. WTF people can’t use correct capitalization in their posts is beyond me, especially in public forums where you represent a greater whole (i.e. metblog). From Mania to Karachi to Berlin and even Atlanta, people manage to portray professionalism. Why is Teazor exempt?

    Mind you, she doesn’t use them on her personal site either and it’s so blatent it must be deliberate.

    Which, really, is worse than ignorance or lack of education, neither of which can be attributed to Teazor.

    i don’t get it. Are you guys that anal about capital letters, that such a huge arguement is needed?

    if it seriously bothers you that much, i may have a cure for it, such as taking a foot out of your asses. :)

    EE Cummings was a famous poet who didn’t use capitalisation in many of his poems – artistic licence apparently. Plus his works are highly regarded despite this grammatical flaw. I’ve been looking online to see how he got away with it. And there are many blogs full of arguments for people using correct capitalisation and the main consensus is that unless you’re EE Cummings use capitals.

    Personally, yes, I think it’s important to recognise that Metblog is / should be something more professional than a personal blog. And yes that means capitals, grammar and punctuation.

    It’s akin to having typos on a company homepage. The more professional you seem, the more people will respect and enjoy what it is you say.

    Anyway Bonifide, you are distilling it down to the smallest point. While capitals may be the word we are using, it’s illustrating a lack of professionalism, generally, in some of the posters entries. Something that is not mirrored in the other Metblog sites.

    Though you may not realise it, capitals also aid reading and scanning, quote (lack of capitals intended) from Everything:

    “some people miss the point of capitalisation, and from lazyness or a strange affectation, they insist on writing only in lowercase. this makes it hard to scan the text quickly and to tell where one sentence ends and the next begins. thus their writing is hard to read and rapidly becomes irritating, detracting from the impact of whatever information the individual in question is trying to communicate. so please don’t do it. please.”

    Seriously, if you can’t bring an adult view to a discussion, then don’t bother because the only person you make look like they have a foot up their ass is you.

    No, That Guy, you should write

    “i like it”

    Has anyone noticed that Teazor signs her posts as “TEAZOR”, not “teazor”? Must be her daily allotment of capitals, all used up at once :D
