We thought we've had our last meal in Bangkok as we headed for Suvarnabhumi Airport, but thanks to a bout of stupidity with yours truly, we managed to miss our flight out of the city. Due to previously scheduled commitments the next morning, we ended up booking ourselves on a redeye flight at an ungodly hour. So... with more than 8 hours until we fly out, we decided the only thing for us to do was to head back into the city and get ourselves some dinner.
Having failed to pay for both of our meals at Gaggan this past week, Hello Kitty felt that we could show our appreciation by going to Meatlicious and finally paying for a meal there. We decided to try out the Airport Rail Link, and took the train to Ramkhamhaeng Station, then grabbed a taxi to Ekkamai Soi 6.
I pinged Gaggan on our way to the restaurant, asking him whether we'd have a problem getting seats at the last minute. I knew he was already in the middle of service for the first seating, so I didn't really expect to hear back from him.
But clearly Jorge wasn't gonna ignore his boss' instructions, and we weren't given a bill at the end of our meal, despite our protestations. So I left a tip big enough to cover the cost of the dinner.
We still had a few hours before our flight, and our friends RC and Ro Ro were actually having dinner at Gaggan, so Hello Kitty and I decided to crash their dinner date. We were, of course, taking advantage of our relationship with the restaurant's owner and staff... And I walked in still wearing my T-shirt, which was exactly what the kitchen staff was wearing. One of the managers later told me - not sure whether he was joking or not - that he thought I was a staff member...
So we ended up sitting with our friends for the next couple of hours, sipping on wines that they generously shared with us - which we exchanged for the leftover portion of our delicious roast chicken from Meatlicious.
