    Fly me to the moon (cake)

    Life, Vanniya Sriangura, Published on 31/08/2018

    » Once upon a time, Chinese emperors worshipped the Moon in the midst of autumn, believing it would bring them an abundant harvest in the following year. Sacrificing to the Moon later became popular among ordinary folks. And a round-shaped pastry, which symbolises the harvest moon, has become an utmost culinary essential during the season.

    Taking noodle up a notch

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 16/02/2018

    » The Setting: A kuay tiew experience doesn't have to mean a quick shophouse meal where all the tables have the flimsy pink papers for wiping everything and plastic jugs filled with tea that look like they have never been washed. If the idea of kuay tiew has become uneventful, Mamarin Noodles can spice it up for you (lame food pun intended). You see, the new kuay tiew restaurant highlights a Ban Beung (a district in Chon Buri) variation of the popular street food while taking it up a notch with the cosy ambience and, most importantly, quality ingredients.

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 28/05/2017

    » When the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) announced its decision to clear vendors from the city's streets, they didn't present a clear-cut plan for the procedure.

    While the kitties NAP, we nibble

    Guru, Narada Sai-ngam, Published on 14/04/2017

    » Over the past few years, animal cafes have proven to be a thing in Thailand, judging by the number of ones operating in Bangkok and major provinces like Chiang Mai and Phuket. And cat cafes are the first subset of this group that have pawed their way into purr-pularity (two puns intended).

    Goin' full American

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 31/03/2017

    » <b>The Setting:</b> Stepping inside the small, homey restaurant makes you feel as if you've left Thailand and entered a diner somewhere in America. It's not just because of the feel of the restaurant and the food. The owner, Katherine, is Thai-American and is very much hands-on with her customers, making them feel welcome and right at home and going around and checking up on them as they eat. We think that makes all the difference in terms of service and atmosphere because it was nice to have a mother-like figure asking you if you're doing okay and checking if you're still breathing after eating so much. Despite the somewhat small space, the restaurant welcomes regulars who come in every week. We think this is because of the welcoming atmosphere, thanks to Katherine and her staff, and of course, the homemade American meal its patrons feast on.
