    » Many restaurants aspire to give their patrons an elevated dining experience, and in some cases, this has been taken literally. Bangkok is home to a vast array of rooftop restaurants and bars, some of which are well-known, go-to places for a dinner with a magnificent view of the city's skyline. This week, we have rounded up a number of relatively new rooftop restos for you to check out and enjoy. Protip: don't look down. Seriously.

    Hidden in plain sight

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 08/06/2018

    » There is no doubt Thailand's nightlife is booming with bars and drinks with unusual names and concoctions. And speaking of which, for every new bar that opens, there has to be a gimmick of some sort to attract bar patrons. Which brings us to this week's cover story for which we went around the city looking for bars with hard-to-spot entrances. After constantly getting lost and double checking Google Maps on our phones, we managed to list four hidden (well not-so-hidden now that we're writing about them) bars for the adventurous bar hoppers who would like to do a bit of effort in getting a drink. Half the fun is discovering them on your own so we included an elusive metre in terms of difficulty finding each tavern, as well as providing a few hints to help guide you on your way. Whether you have already discovered them (shush!) or in need of a change of setting and have a sense of exploration with friends, then Godspeed!

Each was grown through the skill of a farmer who was cultivating land that in some way had been damaged or degraded. It may have been used previously to grow opium poppies, or to rotate crops until the soil was depleted and all that remained was bare mountain land without vegetation.

    Right this way for authentic malay

    Brunch, Published on 31/03/2013

    » Fahmi Sabri grew up with the unique three-in-one cuisine of Malaysia. At breakfast he usually dipped Indian-accented roti into a tangy tamarind sauce. Lunchtime often featured nasi lemak _ considered the country's national dish _ in which rice cooked in coconut milk and flavoured with pandan leaves is served with dried anchovies, a boiled egg, cucumber, roasted peanuts and a zippy sambal (chilli sauce). And many times for dinner he enjoyed mee goreng mamak, a medley of stir-fried yellow noodles and vegetables.
