Situated in the YELO house project, a platform for creative minded people, that believe, art plays a very vital part in society. And without art appreciation and its elements in every facet of life, the society would have been unable to develop in sustainable ways.
Ironically enough, the cafe resides by the dramatic Sansaeb canal, yet right in the heart of the city such as Pathumwan intersection, opposite to Siam Square or MBK. And it sits in a walking distance from two of Bangkok busiest BTS stations, National Stadium and Ratchathewi. Metaphorically says, it is a crossroad dialectic between the roadway and the waterway as well as the old world and the new world, as in a few steps to the legendary Jim Thompson Thai house and Fabulous Siam Discovery or Siam Paragon.
14 months ago, it was a run down abandoned warehouse, now with the magic of Naree Boonyakiat, a former ballerina who has a passionate enthusiasm in Thai culinary, and spent her last decade behind many successful venues. Her perseverance is second to none. She relentlessly wanders entire of our kingdom to find the finest and rarest ingredient, in search of the recipe as no less charismatic as the location itself.
And it does not have a classical menu you will find in most Bangkok tourist attractions. YELO cafe does not compromise to meet foreigner expected flavor. it is far beyond being an authentic food, it is a vibrant reflection of how Thai should be: glamorous, lavish, creative, original and yet embrace the cultural heritage.
As Tawan Duchanee once said, Without Art, the world would have been just a piece of rock, floating lonely in the space.
Here at YELO Cafe,
Naree Boonyakiat's food is a true form of art.
