    Eating Amid The Great Outdoors

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 17/12/2017

    » I may not have to explain how much fun it is to picnic. When asking family members or your loved ones to go on a picnic, chances are everybody would say yes. Organising a picnic trip requires finding (sometimes booking) a scenic spot and preparing food and drinks for your outdoor dining. This might be a little extra work, but it's worth it.


    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).


    A sunshine state of mind

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 25/06/2017

    » There's more than a handful of things that Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Bangkok have in common. For one, both places are hot, humid and rainy. Another thing is that they are both swarmed by mosquitoes, and palm, coconut and banana trees can be seen everywhere. A visit to Fort Lauderdale could very well make you feel right at home, save for the fact that cars drive on the right side of the road and the city boasts much better urban planning.


    Take the road to culinary heaven

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 05/02/2017

    » When travelling by road for any distance in Thailand, we naturally want to eat something along the way. You can just stop at a roadside place for a meal when hunger pangs strike, but some people plan everything in advance, choosing specific restaurants and calculating travel times with mealtimes in mind. It can be challenging but is definitely the most fun.


    Freshly squeezed

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 20/11/2016

    » Those cold fruit drinks, called nam ponlamaipan in Thai, in which fruit juice is blended together with ice to form a slushy mixture, are very popular in Thailand. You can order them made with the juice of limes, oranges, watermelon, guava, tender coconut, and other fruits, or in combinations. People go for them because they combine sweetness, coolness and the flavour of a favourite fruit. Most coffee shops offer them for customers who are not in the mood for coffee, tea, or carbonated beverages.


    Where no roads lead to home

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 15/05/2016

    » If you have an interest in the good life of Thailand's past you could enjoy two happy experiences on the same day -- a visit to Khlong Bangkok Noi and a traditional Thai snack cooked by a local chef.


    Bird is the word

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 08/11/2015

    » I probably sound like I’m bragging or exaggerating when I say Thailand is home to the greatest variety of grilled chicken in the world. Be that as it may, there are reasons why chicken cooked this way has been such an important part of Thai cooking and over the centuries spawned countless variants.


    Mixing things up

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 23/08/2015

    » In today’s column I’d like to visit an exceptional restaurant serving Chinese-Thai food. It is located in an ordinary-looking shophouse with the cooking area out in front. Customers are seated in an air-conditioned room, where they are presented with a menu with a long list of dishes. Those who know it will recall it used to be located behind the sports arena at Pathumwan but has now moved to Lat Ya Road in Thon Buri.


    Recipes for success

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 31/05/2015

    » Ask a noodle seller why they have chosen this particular business and you may well get this answer: noodles are easy to make, the investment is low and profits are good. Put the same question to the owner of a curry and rice shop and quite likely you will hear that he or she knew how to prepare the dishes, or perhaps had worked in another curry and rice shop, and that the food is easy to sell. People like it, and if you can set up shop near a market, dormitory or factory, business will be especially good.


    A taste of Tokyo style

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 17/05/2015

    » There are certain things that arouse buyer’s lust in second-hand or “pre-owned” form — vintage cars, works of art, or original furniture in Art Nouveau or Art Deco styles. When it comes to items for personal use like bedding, clothing or shoes, however, interest drops off sharply.
