One Ounce for Onion was a surprise for me. Not many talks highly about this place and it uses Thai coffee which is locally considered inferior to imported beans. However, the outcome was surprisingly decent to the point that I can suggest people to drop by here for espresso based coffee.

One Ounce for Onion (OOFO) is mentioned in 7 Good Cafes In Sukhumvit, Bangkok: The Sprudge Coffee Guide, an article on the coffee news website Sprudge, for quite some time. However, bear in mind the writer was writing with suggestions by the staff at Roots, another café in the area, at the time. Still OOFO got some cachet just to be included in the list. Whether it will perform, let try. Let talk about its location first. The shop is not easy to go as it locates deep in a small lane after quite a few turns from the main road; the way back is even more difficult, I believe, if you don’t have your own car. This is quite a norm for the Sukhumvit area, IMHO. If you decide to make a trek to OOFO, I believe the espresso based coffee there won’t disappoint you.
The decoration/setting inside won’t look like pictures I post as the café underwent a redecoration after my visit. While the new design should improve your experience there, these pictures should give you a feeling of how this coffee shop feels like. One thing that I like about this shop is that it is quite active in promoting better quality Thai coffee. I haven’t had much experience with Thai green beans. What I had so far wasn’t up to snuff vs. coffee from other established regions. So this is a good chance to try yet another coffee from Thailand.
This is one of the café I can suggest anybody to drop by for espresso based coffee. While the drip is rather disappointing, the latter conversation with the owner gives me hope that the improvement on drip is likely to come by in the future. If that is the case, it will finally round out good coffee offerings at this café.
