Needless to mention much, The Greenhouse Restaurant at The Landmark Bangkok has been well-known destination for Bangkokian congee lovers during the last few decades. I, personally, do visit this restaurant from time to time. The Greenhouse Restaurant is like a coffee shop of the hotel that operates twenty seven. The menu range is not just Chinese but also mix of Asian, international, and coffee shop style food. The atmosphere is an old style hotel's coffee shop but comfy enough.

Of course, congee was my main target for the meal. Nevertheless, we did also have 2 choices of roast: crispy pork and roasted duck - เฉโปสองชนิด: หมูกรอบกับเป็ดย่าง (5/10) to accompany. This was enjoyable but, comparing to the one at Imperial Duck we had a few days earlier, not so much impressive though. I would say it is on par with many other places. I found that the dish was somewhat too fatty and both duck skin and the pork were not crispy enough to my liking. At the price of THB520 for a portion, it is definitely expensive. Well, the venue is a coffee shop of hotel, so no complaint.

For congee, the ones we had were congee with special meat balls - โจ๊กลูกชิ้นหมู (7/10) and congee with beef - โจ๊กเนื้อสด (7/10). At the price of THB195 and THB200 respectively, these were considerably expensive for congee. Additional of preserved egg - ไข่เยี่ยวม้า or boiled egg would cost THB50 or THB30 extra. Congee here is almost as good as those in Hong Kong. It is extremely smooth with mild flavour. Pork ball and beef are tender and come in generous portion. This is sure a perfect compliment for breakfast or light dinner. No wonder why people keeps coming back here even the high price tag.
