Tokyo Land at Amarin Plaza
Tokyo Land is a food cart in Amarin Plaza that sells ‘tokyo,’ a popular go-to snack in Thailand. And although this snack shares the same name as Japan’s capital, they don’t have other things in common – it actually means ‘Thai crepe.’
Tokyo Land’s signature is its Jumbo Cheese Lover (฿85, ~USD2.5), that’s a giant hotdog wrapped in mozzarella, nacho cheese dip, tomato sauce, and a crispy crepe – sprinkled with cheese seasoning.
When we took a bite, the crepe was crusty and went well with the tender hotdog and the stringy and soft melted mozzarella.
And while the cheese dip and the seasoning enhanced a cheesy flavour of the tokyo, the tomato sauce added a sweet and slightly tangy flavour to round it off.
Just one Jumbo Cheese Lover was big enough to fill us up for hours after, so it makes for a perfect snack when you’re busy shopping all day.
We recommend all foodies to eat it hot to get that stretchy cheese pull and crispy crepe texture.
Besides this signature item, you can select regular-size tokyo with basic fillings like cream, taro, or egg from ฿15 (~USD0.45). And if you buy 10 pieces, you can get 1 for free.
Quick bite for cheese lovers
It goes without saying that all cheese lovers in Bangkok shouldn’t miss out on this stringy, cheesy item. Head to Amarin Plaza during your shopping session around the Siam area and get this to munch on.
