    A summer of fun

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 05/04/2019

    » Summer is here -- like that's not at all obvious. As the heat bears down on all of us Bangkokians, the temptation to simply spend these hellish days locked up in our rooms with the AC turned high (or is it low? You get what I mean) while we cuddle in our blankets and binge hours and hours on end of Netflix shows is strong. But that doesn't have to be the case. There's still a bunch of enjoyable things to do around the city despite the heat. In fact, they're not only fun, but they're perfect things to during the summer time. So stop being a lazy bum, get off that couch and outta the house, and don't worry, you can still have your ice cream. Here's a few summer activities to get you up and going during this heatwave.

    Hot off the coals

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 31/05/2019

    » Despite modern cooking techniques and fancy equipment making their way to restaurant kitchens, nothing beats the flavour of produce cooked over an open fire. Suddenly everyone and their mother is into barbecue and charcoal and wood-fire cooking are making a comeback in a big way, so much so that chefs are designing and building their own pits for their kitchens. Guru has complied a good (if we may say so ourselves) mix of Bangkok restaurants offering various cuisines from the live fire. After all, it's not just the heat that counts, conquering fire is what made us human!
