You have to be will it lead you to the way.
Good day mate, Back to the yesterday with the coincident because my friend who has a great passion about coffee came with me together at Sampeng area by acrossing the Chao Phraya River at the Tha Din Daeng Pier to Rajawong Pier. We walked along the street to have a looked around Sampeng before i popped up the idea about to visit one of the most legend Chinese coffee shop not so far from there on the Chareonkrung Road next to The Old Siam a couple of blocks only. There is " On Lok Yun" We spent a time walking there about 15 minutes till arrived at 1:30 PM.
The shop already had some local people even Chinese Singaporean or Malaysian sat and drinking coffee inside. By the first glanced i felt so stunned from the super simple decoration with small antiques Milo metal containers, the shop a bit not so clean by the common sense standard but the atmosphere wasn't so bad with the location like that. When i tried to look around no have any competitors for them. The owner with his brother working together inside the shop however i noticed that the Chief did not so welcome for a Thai strangerslike me and my Mom with another Farang Which i so surprised by the way that he approached and chatting with us. We order 1 Americano (Oh Leang) and 2 Lattes with a big set of scramble eggs with ham bacon and sausage, and the bread with thai custard tea as a dipping for the bread.
For the review about the coffee and foods, i would say Americano just so simple as any local coffee carts can do the same but lattes was pretty decent taste. The Scramble egg plate not so bad but compare with the money cost i would say they must try harder to improve the quantity with quality. The custard cream was a bit simple plain and super small amount of its. My mom asked the owner many things about the products and foods which he has inside the coffee shop, unfortunately he showed not to interest even keen on to service or giving a proper answer. Until his brother came back from the outside that was another story. The man saving the day for the proper answered with a great service mind. We felt better to chat with another brother one. However i don't understand why even the shop already famous, it doesn't mean he can ignore those walk in people. For me it was my first time there and it might be the last either. Compared to the modern coffee shops which are popped up as a mushrooms in the rainy season all around the country; Those with a high quality of coffee beans rosated and the sanitizing hygiene plus the passion spirit of new entrepreneurs. They are much much more caring the clients with all of respectful with a wide range of the coffee types by the price so reasonable.
I wondering if the old traditional type of the coffee shops like On lok Yun will stay survive for another couple of decades with this kind of attitude. I like the unique atmosphere and a diversified types of coffee shop but who knows what's gonna happen when those old man frequence customers gradually pass away from time to time. How many teenagers left for a living museum shop. Do they still want to sitting at the ignore space feeling? it is still a question indside my mind. By the way on the way back i drove a car passed by the another modern coffee shop next to the headquarter of Bangkok Metropolitan at the Giant Swing (Sao Ching Char) its name "Mont Nomsod". Inside so many people just packed sitting with all range of ages people from youngsters to the old man. it looked so clean inside and with a certainly more menus of snacks and drinks. I would say i am going to visit this place one day with my mate for sure. Hopfully this article will give more clue for the owner of any businesses which nowadays not only the old good sake reputation will safe their businesses in the future but they need to concern more and more about the service mind and a proper hygienic also. And the living museum might be alive again with a real hope for a susatainable growth with all of the clients smiling face selfie through the social media forever. Ciao :]
