Soi 23 / Skytrain: Asoke
Dragging a grump-ass hubby or want a one-stop soi? Have your cab drop you halfway up Soi 23 outside the divine Almeta at #20/3 (see Adv. Shop.). Go in, scream and run about hyperventilating, and once you’ve finished, exit, cross the road and refresh at Minibar Royale (see Lunch). Retrace down Soi 23 past Almeta and turn left into the sub-soi to find retro Bangkok diner Bharani on the left at #96/14 / 02 664 4454, and further down, Nandakwang at #108/3 / 02 644 0017 / on the right for stuffed toy rusticy cottony faff. Carry on along and round the cnr past the car wash to find on your right at #116/4 Incredible with younger bro Eligible next door (see Standout Stores for both). Exit right, turn right for Sonie’s (see Rest./smart) and two doors further, Enlever ses Vêtements at #59/3 / 086 977 9202 / 11am-6pm Tue-sat or by appt. / edgy backstreet boy’s bespoke by talented Ny-trained tailor Suparerk Bhusaputra. Done!
