After arriving in Sukhumvit, I asked a friend of mine who lives in the neighborhood where I could go for some quick pizza. Immediately, he told me of an Italian place that was small but had sit down seating near the Asok BTS station. My hotel (the Sofitel) was just a few blocks away so I went exploring knowing only an approximate location and that the restaurant was on the same side of the road as the Sofitel.
Pala was then easy enough to find as my friend described. Instantly I liked the place. The set up was basic but there were many patrons inside. The server was quick to take our drink order. There is a deli inside as well too, but since the hour was late (around 1030pm) it wasn't in use. Due to the late hour (?) or popularity in general (?), it was hard to find pizza slices that were still available. I ordered three. Otherwise pizza comes in 1/2 metre and full metre pies. In the end I settled on a brie cheese slice with ham I believe. Even if it wasn't my top choice on the menu, the pizza was excellent. With an empty stomach, believe me I couldn't quite finish the three slices. So don't underestimate.
I really liked the simple atmosphere. The substance is in the food. After all there is nothing quite like a Singha and some really good pizza before going out to hit the late night bars in Bangkok. The location is very easy to reach for anyone using the BTS, MRT, or simply staying in Sukhumvit. I really liked Limoncello on Soi 11, but it's always nice to have multiple Italian options available in this heavily trafficked area of the city.
