Lola By Cocotte Review: Bangkok’s New Italian Restaurant In Ekkamai – Flavorful Journal Of A Girl Named Lola


Have you ever seen a journal that is not meant to be read, but instead, to be tasted? That is how Lola rolls! Upon your first step, you are really entering the diary of Lola, a lively girl from a countryside of Italy. The dainty decoration, the hanging images with a sense of pop-art, the girly stuffs – you are getting to know Lola better in every passing minute.

A big fan of wandering, Lola loves jotting down recipes of the foods she’s tried, especially those in America and Italy. Now, it’s high time to share to the world what she is completely compelled by.

The Dishes

Sensational are most of the dishes served here, and what we love about this place is how we could pick if we want Italian gourmets or American delicacies, or both at once. When finest ingredients being turned into full-flavored fares in consonance with Lola’s recipes, that’s gold (with a frisky backdrop of pop-art palette.)

Starting with Tomato Confit & Pesto (THB 470), we were stunned by faint flavours being revealed in each bite of moist and bouncy fresh burrata cheese served with cooling tomatoes, making this a refreshing appetizer.

Tastily chewy Cheesy Ravioli (THB 370), of which its pasta is made of special flour and cheese with unique aroma, and hides Parmesan, cream cheese, and mashed potatoes inside, waiting to be discovered, and soaked in creamy sauce with subtle spinach scent.

Here comes the highlight – temperate pizza at its best! A variety of Italian- and American-styled pizza is on the list. Pepperoni (THB 370) comes with semi-thin crust and piquant spicy pepperoni that one could not just get enough easily. Another must-try pan called 8 Cheese!! (THB 490) comprises the namesake number of cheese that perfectly blends into one another – say it’s the tenderest collision of cheeses.

Burgers are as well the main attractions of Lola’s wonderland. Lola’s in France (THB 390),with the Wagyu beef patty capped with red wine jam, gives a new sentiment of burger that is somewhat sweet. Meanwhile, Lola’s in Italy (THB 390) with prosciutto and pesto on juicy Wagyu beef patter creates ambrosial flavor that is one-of-a-kind. Fries served with the burgers are already striking enough to make one’s day. There are more cheesy burgers on the menu that we wish we’d tried.

Sounding simple, but Lola’s special Dark Chocolate Mousse (THB 250) made of 70% dark chocolate, ornamented with candied orange and crispy pistachio taste matchless heavenly, and we wouldn’t recommend you missing this meltable paradise whatsoever.

The Drinks

There are 5 signatures cocktails to quench your late night thirst, all of which come in photogenic colors.

Soft Cuban is one with youthful flavors resembling days running around in a berry field thanks to playful character of Cuban rum, crème de mûre, fresh lemon, pineapple, blueberries, and adorned by cherry. The girlish glass is very easy to drink and is perfect as a refreshing one to start.

Moving on to the next glass, One Star perks the night up with Evan Willams bourbon and cinnamon-infused rum, zested by fresh lemon and apple juice. Piquancy from cinnamon and slight sweetness generate a unique character. Bolder and the rest in term of taste, it could be said that this is the only masculine cocktail among other signatures.

Fruity Polycat greets you with its sweet, peachy smell from the peach foam before it shows you a candied world garnished with flowers. Definitely, this is the glass for girls.

Modern Art is an eye-catching glass with lovely colors, and it is apparently ladies’ choice. Sweetness with a faint sourness is the flavor to expect from the glass rather than anything more experimental.

Lastly, New York Memories sum up how Lola sees New York, with a clean and fresh taste that reminds people of Central Park in spring. The Beefeater dry gin being topped with ginger liqueur and Italian basil, a bit of spiciness makes a sunshine inside the glass.

Guest’s Choice
Our private pilot guest, Thanyachat Pornwirawongwaree, as a man in this fancy land, undoubtedly pick One Star as his choice. He likes how cinnamon plays a big role in this glass, and he suggests that this is the taste men would go for.

Getting There
Drop off at Ekkamai BTS Station and take exit 1, then grab a taxi or a motorbike to Ekkamai Soi 12. You will pass Health Land that is situated in front of the alley and inside the alley, The Accidental Butcher is around the corner before reaching Lola by Cocotte.
