What to Eat at Siam Paragon Bangkok: Nuer Koo Beef Noodles and After You Cafe

Siam Paragon is a chichi shopping mall, but there are affordable options in the mall including the food court and shops at the basement.

We tried two affordable options, Nuer Koo Beef Noodles for mains, and After You Cafe for dessert.

Nuer Koo (pronouced as “nua kooh”) is known to serve one of the best beef noodles in Bangkok. The basic traditional soup noodles without any meat start from 80 baht (S$3.60), or you can pick the beef or pork noodles.

Depending on the cut of beef or pork you choose, the price varies: shoulder (235 baht, S$10.60), under rib (350 baht, $15.80), rib-eye (450 baht, S$20.30), imported Australian Wagyu (550 baht, S$25) or imported Japanese Kobe beef (550  baht). They also have Kurobuta pork noodles (125baht, S$5.65)

I don’t want to oversell it. It’s not bad. The beef bone broth is light but flavourful and doesn’t taste overly salty. But it’s not mind-blowing, or at least not as mind-blowing as some people claim it to be. The beef is cooked nicely, not too tough. A nice bowl, nothing to complain about.

After You Dessert Cafe is definitely worth visiting. We went after lunch and luckily, it was empty but come tea break time at 3pm, there was a long queue.

It first opened in 2007. Now there are SEVENTY FOUR branches all over Thailand. 74!!!! despite the high prices.

Even though the prices are high (the coffee here costs more than the beef noodles at Nuer Koo), the quality is fantastic.

Even the latte (115baht, $5.20) is awesome. It’s nutty, roasted sweetly without that bitterness in our local coffee, and aromatic with a raisin aftertaste.

Shibuya Toast

But if there is one think you MUST ORDER at After you, it’s their Shibuya honey toast which comes in two sizes. We got the smaller one at 175baht (S$8). Really not cheap for just bread and ice cream.

But it is AMAZING. It’s the toast that started the shibuya toast trend in Thailand and Singapore.

The well-buttered bread, slightly salty, is toasted so the outside remains crisp and the inside is fluffy like clouds even as the ice cream melts.

The contrast of the sweet ice cream and salty butter is fantastically pleasing. It sounds weird in theory but they exist in a terrific balance that it is quite impossible to stop eating.

Regretted not getting the bigger portion. Come to Singapore soon.

We paid for our food reviewed here.
