    Ice ice baby

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 22/12/2017

    » Shaved ice is commonly found streetside in Bangkok and is a cheap way to cool yourself from the blistering heat even in the middle of December (Yeah, this cool wave generally doesn't last long). Taiwan's got their own version of shaved ice topped with a little more than just syrup and milk, and Taro Cube is one of the latest dessert shops to the Taiwanese version in the Land of Smiles. Despite being open a mere two months, Taro Cube's already got three locations. The newest and biggest one at Central Pinklao has a slightly larger menu than the other two, but we opted to visit the branch at Central Chidlom.

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 02/03/2018

    » Blink and you'll miss it! The entrance to Ekamai 16 is rather small, narrow and the street sign is barely visible among Bangkok's iconic wire tangle. But what it leads to is a new restaurant serving good old American fare, complete with craft beers -- The Fat Tap. The casual setting in a townhouse is all wood, which is a step up from owner Matthew Fischer's very popular Fatty's Bar and Diner on Din Daeng. The Fat Tap has the cosy feel of a hip hostel, minus the backpackers, with long wooden benches softened by throw pillows. Classic tracks from yesteryear blast in the background and add more character compared to the other pricey craft beer places found in the area.
