    A flavourful trek to new heights

    Guru, Nimarta Narang, Published on 24/11/2017

    » Imagine having appetisers in one setting, the main course in another and desserts in a third. Sounds like quite an adventurous night, right? Centara Grand at CentralWorld is offering such a night featuring three different restaurants for their progressive dinner special: UNO MAS, Red Sky and CRU Champagne Bar. As you progress through the meal, you go up in height as well. Starting on the 54th floor, each course takes you a few floors up. The ambience for all of the restaurants is fancy and classy whilst providing you with excellent views of Bangkok's skyline. The progressive dinner, priced at B2,999++ per person, allows you to experience all three restaurants in one night. It's guaranteed that you'll be able to take amazing photographs, but your Instagram feed shouldn't be the only thing satisfied.

    A recipe for harmony on the streets of Bangkok

    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. Many wondered where the vendors would be moved to. Others asked if sellers would quit their livelihoods altogether and find a different job once and for all.

    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).

    The rice president

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 07/04/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> Arroz is situated in a dainty house on the lower end of the leafy street of Soi 53. A quiet residential area that's been asking for an eatery that serves up something other than pizza and sushi.

    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.

    Livin' La Vida Mocha

    Guru, Lydia Bilton, Published on 10/03/2017

    » Here's a Friday fun fact for you. Did you know that Starbucks (that world-famous green and white coffeehouse you Bangkokians love) failed miserably in Australia? In 2003, the American coffee giant opened eighty-four stores Down Under, and eight years later, sixty of those closed.

    Soaking up the sun

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 19/02/2017

    » Conjure up a mental list of old-fashioned dishes that still make the mouth water, and then notice how many include main ingredients that are dried or salted. Here's a personal selection: nuea khem tom kathi sai hawm daeng (salted beef stewed with shallots in coconut cream), nuea khem cheek pen sen foy phat kap namtaan (shredded salted dried beef stir-fried with palm sugar), plaa chon taak haeng khem tom kathi proong rote baeb tomyam sai bai makhaam awn (salted and dried snakehead fish stewed with sour-spicy seasonings in coconut cream with tender tamarind leaves), hua plaa chon taak haeng khem sai kathi sai fak (dried salted snakehead fish head stewed with coconut cream and squash), hoy malaeng phuu taak haeng khem phat kap nam taan (salted and dried mussels stir-fried with palm sugar or the same mussels simmered into a curry with pineapple). The list goes on.

    Dishing on noodles

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 29/01/2017

    » It might just be chauvinism on my part, and perhaps I just have it wrong, but I have the impression that Thailand has more noodle dishes than any other country. For starters, there are kuay tio luuk chin plaa (rice noodles with balls of pounded fish meat), ba-mee muu daeng or pet yang (wheat noodles with Chinese red pork or grilled duck meat), kuay tio ruea (rice "boat noodles"), kuay tio nuea (rice noodles with beef), kuai tio khae (Hakka style), kuay tio kaeng (also known as kuay tio khaek, in curried coconut cream sauce) and kuay tio kai mara (with chicken and bitter melon).

    Art on a plate

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 04/11/2016

    » If you're guilty of binge watching Chef's Table on Netflix or you like to indulge yourselves in watching food-related documentaries, shows and films, then perhaps we can all agree that food on screen looks seriously appetising. If you've watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi, The Great British Bake Off or that god-awful attempt from Bradley Cooper to play a badass chef in Burnt, then you'll understand.
