    Doorway to Gourmet

    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 21/07/2017

    » The Setting: Surrounded by a jungle of business towers and high rise condos is Chunky. From the outside it looks upscale yet modest in comparison to its neighbours. A step inside will reveal a cosy loft space with high ceilings and generous amounts of sunlight, creating an open ambience. The modest yet sophisticated interior makes it feel like you're stepping into someone's high-rise loft. There's plenty of seating and a prep kitchen ready to whip up drinks on the ground floor while a pleasant little loft for more intimate seating can be found up the staircase at the back of the restaurant.

    The art of fermentation

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 21/07/2017

    » Cheese snobs should skip this story. This one's for all the vocal vegans, silent converters and plant-based-food enthusiasts out there. Bangkok's finally got a nice and varied supply of what you've been dreaming about: vegan cheese. We know you have, admit it! Barefood Bangkok is the engine fermenting the cashew nuts needed to see this cheese through, a process that takes at least a month, depending on how hard you like your cheese. When stored in the fridge, it keeps for... well, as long as you want it to.

    A funny stranger in her own home

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 21/07/2017

    » Unpleasant experiences can be a source for comedy. That seems to be the case for Simiran "Simi" Srinarula, a 20-year old student studying Media & Communications at Macquarie University in Sydney. Simi combines her experience as a Thai-Indian and her wittiness into funny skits. Her Facebook and YouTube handle Kaek Kee Kui (fb.com/kaekkeekui) — which unofficially translates to talkative Thai Indians — is where you can find some funny sketches that she has done all by herself. Simi manages to poke fun at things she has experienced in Thai society as a Thai of Indian descent, while slipping in an important message here and there. One video where she made fun of questions that she got asked as a Thai-Indian recently went viral and earned her some media attention. There is some strong language in her videos but we think they are funny and definitely worth checking out.

    Leading by creativity

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 21/07/2017

    » For many of us, creativity was stifled during childhood and at school. This is a tremendous shame, as the power of creativity and the benefits it can have on society are endless. But there’s good news. When you repress something, it can bloom back in full force. And we’ve noticed a bit of a “renaissance” in the creative fields happening in the city as of late. From designers to dancers, actors to architects, painters to poets and singers to start-up entrepreneurs, Bangkok’s bubbling away with an energy never before seen. Creativity is living everywhere, from the way people are wearing their clothes to the way the food is being arranged on our plates. People are even incorporating beer drinking into their yoga routine. If that’s not creative, then we don’t know what is! This week, we spoke to ten people in Bangkok and beyond living on their creativity. If you’re looking for inspiration to fuel whatever it is that you live for, read on.

    Not-so-newsworthy News

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 14/07/2017

    » When you've pored over the news feed on Facebook as much as I have, you'll have surely noticed some news items that made you think "Why on earth did you report this?" or "Great, that's two minutes of my life I'll never get back." Here are five "news items" that I spotted recently that perhaps, IMHO, shouldn't have been cluttering up our screens.

    The venerated house of pancakes

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 14/07/2017

    » <b>The Setting:</b> The International House of Pancakes, or IHOP as it's most commonly known, has been a beloved breakfast staple in the good ol' US of A since 1958. While it does have the word "international" in its name, it was only a few weeks ago that the American breakfast chain finally opened its first store here in Bangkok. Located on the ground floor of Siam Paragon, IHOP sits right over the small artificial pond. Seating in the current location is limited, but it's planning to open up a bigger space up on the fourth floor by the end of the year. Because of this, it's best if you get there early. Besides, the menu is a breakfast menu. Actually, since Paragon opens at 10am, let's just say that it's perfect for brunch. You know what, we take it all back. Pancakes are perfect any time of the day, whether it be breakfast, lunch, dinner, or when you wake up at 3am in the morning feeling hungry. IHOP won't be open then, though.
