    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.

    Meet Bangkok's best BBQ

    Guru, Adam Kohut, Published on 21/08/2015

    » A blue neon sign lures the hungry into The Smokin' Pug, which is perhaps Bangkok's only true American barbecue restaurant. There are chains offering pale imitations of the fabled cuisine, but that, to an eye even remotely trained, reveal themselves to be imposters, cowering behind shields of rubbery steak, smothered in a viscous armour of cloying, pre-bottled sauce.


    In the mood for food

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 29/05/2015

    » We here at Guru love us some wordplay (especially when it’s naughty). Punch “5318008” into a calculator and turn it upside down to spell a certain part of female anatomy. Rearrange “dog food lid” backwards (with the right spacing) and you’ll get a NSFW phrase. And remember that time you meant to type “see” on a keyboard, but had forgotten to switch from Thai to English? So when we saw the logo of MOODZ, a five-month-old restaurant at the mouth of Thong Lor Soi 10, we channelled our inner Robert Langdon and discovered the word’s upside-down reflection is “WOODS” — the name of another project by the same management team. The restaurant’s interior feels grown-up with a retro touch, but by no means comes across dated. Turquoise walls make other decorative details pop, from the checkered floor to the custom-made chandeliers. The sophisticated indoor area is perfect for an eye-locking, romantic dinner between lovebirds, while the rattan seats outside create a nice setting for shooting the breeze and people watching. The patrons here are expats, couples on date nights and after-work Thai execs. MOODZ also sees families on Sundays.


    Thong Lor's Spanish star

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 13/02/2015

    » The Thong Lor strip is already filled with high-end Japanese restaurants but what many residents don't know, is that a Japanese expat has branched out on his own to open up an authentic Spanish eatery. Hidden right under our noses, it's tucked inside a sub-soi that you would only venture in if your Merc decides to break down. Don't let the huge Spanish flag out front fool you, tapas is not the star of the show here. Instead, the focus is on hearty and hefty Spanish dishes, packed with exciting and authentic flavours that will have you demanding seconds. The decor is modern and comforting, with bright yellow and red tablecloths spicing the place up. Diners include Japanese expats and the area's residents.
