I am not the poster child for Celiac Disease. I repeat, I AM NOT THE POSTER CHILD FOR CELIAC DISESE. If you see a gluten free product on this blog, it’s truly delicious and lives up the hype. I spend most of my time trying gluten free substitutes only to find out they’re appalling, making me curse my DNA and secretly wish I could slap that beautiful pizza slice out of your hand. I’m not going to be a disillusioned gluten free zombie and lie to you guys. This lifestyle sucks and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
On special occasions, I make an exception to eat gluten, usually when my hormones are raging and I’m irritated with the world. I’ve noticed locals posting pictures of colorful tea on Instagram. They reminded me of the teas I’ve only seen in Chinatown in the North East. I had to somehow fit tea time into my schedule. Luckily, I was scheduled for a facial and Halotherapy just five minutes away from Krungthep! 🙂
This minimal, quaint, Thai inspired tea room is an excellent addition to Winter Park. It’s perfect for lunch, brunch or a quick snack. The low-key vibe kept me in a relaxed state. Have you ever came out of the spa, got in your car and felt stressed on the way home? That happens to me countless times, but for once, my vibe for the rest of the night was chill.
I settled for the Nom Yen Tea (pink milk, caffeine free). It’s pretty sweet and could be your dessert alone, but PMS.
Fio’s Ka-ti Brick Toast
It’s basically a piece of buttery, sugared up heaven.
I ordered the Ferrero choco – brick toast with homemade ferrero brownie, chocolate ice cream, whip cream, hazelnut and chocolate syrup.
I love how they use Olde Hearth Bread, our local artisan bread company. The brick toast dishes were perfection. We ate in complete silence. If you know us, you know that were never shut up.
This tea room has other options like sandwiches and salads, but I eat a million salads week. This Cecliac Attack was worth it.
And yes, I felt not so great after. No regrets.
If you’re in the area, stop by!
