    Where's (Ong) Poo?

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 15/09/2017

    » Yep, we went there, poking fun at the former PM fleeing the country with the title. But in all seriousness now, for those who have been to Chiang Mai and tried ong poo, a local northern delicacy made of crabs found in rice paddies, you may wonder where you can find them in the concrete jungle that is Bangkok.

    A major meal

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 15/09/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> MahaNaga has been a notable name in the Bangkok dining scene since its opening in 2003. In terms of years spent on Sukhumvit, 14 years in business is a feat in itself. The modern Thai restaurant later added Gypsy Spells Bar as part of its compound. Despite its central location amidst tall buildings, you may feel as if time moves a bit slower once you step into MahaNaga. Ambience-wise, it gives off an air of mystery while seamlessly blending traditional Thai and Moroccan styles.

    Fine (home) dining

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 15/09/2017

    » There are people who like eating out at fancy restaurants helmed by Michelin-starred chefs and making it a special occasion. There are also people who prefer home-cooked meals and opt for simplicity over lavish dining. But who's to say you can't have both? Chef Pam Utharntharm is doing just that at The Table. It's not a conventional "restaurant" because she serves patrons at her home and cooks their meal in the comfort of her own kitchen. Guru talked to her about how she's bringing home-cooked Michelin quality food to Bangkokian foodies and helping them experience -- to use the words of the eternally wise Hannah Montana -- the best of both worlds.

    QT at SIS

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 15/09/2017

    » <b>What's in a name?</b> The SIS Kata -- a new resort by the Aksara Collection which also operates Kata Sea Breeze Resort and Patra Mansion -- had its official launch in June. SIS stands for stay in style and it just so happens that the three Pattaravoranee sisters, all of whom are execs and heirs of the Aksara empire, opened this property with the aim of attracting younger (and apparently selfie-centred) crowds.

    Le Coup d'état à l'université

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 08/09/2017

    » At first I didn't want to comment on the recent Chula scandal because, like a good Thai, you shouldn't criticise the educational institution that you graduated from, especially one with such history, pride and prestige. If you've been reading my editor's notes, you know I have poked fun at Uncle Tu many times -- he does give me a lot of material to work with! Yet, when it came to the establishment where I received my higher education, I was hesitant.
