Sony a900 & Minolta 35mm f1.4 G Test : Is it a Shop? Is its a restaurant? Is it a gallery? No...It's Happened To Be A Closet

The second you step into, you will immediately be wondering where you are. This place definitely has it's own thing going on, but maybe you should have expected this if you had taken a look at it's name, I mean it's not everyday that so see a name like "It's Happened To Be A Closet".

This...brand...started off as a clothing store/restaurant/hair salon (yes you read that right), all compacted into a rather small space. Even with the clothing store part on it's own this place would still have plenty of character. Selling it's own designs of weird(to me anyways but it is selling extremely well, so well in fact that the store has now got several branches) handmade outfits. Even the store layout and arrangement is somewhat unique as you can probably tell from the pictures. The store is decorated with vintage furniture and antique pieces, and the cloths themselves are...well... different, on top of that there is just so much clothing that there are hugh piles of them everywhere.

But it's not for the fashion that I came, I mean a yellow t-shirt is pushing at the limit of my comfort zone, so I don't think there are any outfits here that I would dare wear in public. I came because I have been told by many people that "It's Happened To Be A Closet" serves some very nice Italian food. So today I came to the original branch located in Siam Square (a shopping district where teenagers and hip people hang out) for the authentic experience. I mean I have walked passed other branches and they looked like regular restaurants, not so here. Here...well it's like you are having food serve to you in the middle of a large walk in closet.

This place must have one powerful ventilation system. I mean with so much clothing everywhere aren't they worried about getting the smell of food and cooking on them? Oh well that's not for me to worry about. I have got more pressing matters to attend to, like eating some delicious food.

I got to say I love good bread, and the complimentary bread here is amazing. I could  just have them as a meal by themselves.

Fattening up for the winter here in Thailand...well that's my excuse anyway.

I have got to say, to all those people who have been recommending this place to me, it did not disappoint. The food was great and so was the unique experience. It's not everyday that you get to eat good food in this kind of setting, well actually it's not everyday that you get to be in this kind of setting at all. So If you happen to be around Siam Square in Bangkok, I suggest you go give this place a visit, it's located in Siam Square Soi 3.
