    Street and savoury

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 04/08/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> After being dubbed the world's street food capital for two years in a row by CNN, it seemed only proper that the first Michelin-starred street food restaurant, Hawker Chan, opened its doors to Bangkokians almost a month ago. Hailing from Singapore, this is the restaurant's second venture out of its home country, the first being Taiwan. The restaurant has opened in a pretty accessible location on the fifth floor of Terminal 21. Much like its original Singaporean location, it's not a stranger to long queues, but customer flow has definitely improved since they opened. Still, don't be surprised if all their tables are full during lunch and dinner, especially on weekends.

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 13/10/2017

    » Tanaporn "Faii" Oi-isaranukul (second from left) is a donor relations coordinator and food hygienist at ThaiHarvest-SOS (fb.com/thaiharvestsos, thaiharvestsos.org), a local food rescue foundation which raises awareness around food waste and combats it. So far, it has rescued 65 tonnes of edible excess food and collected around 120 tonnes in scraps of food to make compost. One kilo of food provides up to three meals. Do the maths. They have provided 195,000 meals for those in need such as refugees and orphans. And, for every B1,000 spent, they serve 50 meals. Faii, a food science graduate from King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, tells us about the budding organisation and how you can help out.
