Black Food

Thailand is in mourning, as are we. So instead of our usual colourful City 7 page, we thought we would take a look at some of the colour-appropriate dishes to be found in the city.


Made to order artistic concept food is the name of the game here, including this black lod chong dessert, a combination of black sweet rice noodles served with aromatic burnt coconut, sugar cane and coconut milk.

Open 7.30am – 3pm. (Closed Tuesdays)
