    Delight in every bite

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 19/10/2018

    » It is not often that one expects to find a gem in the food hall of a department store. However, the Flour Shoppe is just that -- a hidden gem. Tucked at the back of Central Chidlom's Food Hall with a small outdoor terrace, the eatery specialises in southern American and classic American diner fare. Chef and patron Brian Hill is a pastry chef at heart but since he grew up in the US, decided to incorporate his favourite food into a menu that will have you salivating in no time.

    No FIFA FOMO

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 29/06/2018

    » We are smack in the middle of the World Cup, and unlike Americans who use phrases like "World Series" or "World Champions" despite having only American participants, the majority of the world is actually involved in this tournament. There's only about two weeks left, but there are a lot of matches to watch and a whole lot of World Cup to keep you going. Fortunately, Bangkok is high on the World Cup fever, and we've got a number of places you can visit to keep that high.

    At rice rainbow's end

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 20/04/2014

    » We have no way of knowing what new strains of rice will appear in the future, whether the grains will be long or short, soft or hard, or how their fragrance might differ from that of the types we have now. This is because, as it has come down to us from the past, rice has changed constantly. As the natural environment, the weather, water sources, and the character of the soil have changed over time, rice, too, has changed naturally.

    Raising the (rooftop’s) bar

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 02/05/2014

    » A good rooftop place is worth getting your ears popped in an elevator, climbing some additional stairs, risking your fresh-from-salon hairdo and getting over your fear of heights for. The Roof is a recent entry into the dining scene and proves to be quite a contender with its high altitude and attitude. The venue offers a modern and stylish vibe with music that isn’t intrusive. The view from the venue is very generous and almost unspoiled (except for one corner where a nearby condo stands too close) and the seats are arranged in a way that almost everyone gets a front-row view. Lovers can enjoy some eye-locking and snuggling in high-back couches while friends can lounge about at dining booths. The weekday crowd consists of international hotel guests and office workers looking to unwind while the weekend sees friends and lovers.

    Dishes with a bit of stick

    Brunch, Published on 02/03/2014

    » No it isn’t just for the cheese plate. I get fed up with pulling limp heads of celery out of friend’s fridges. I’m not sure why people buy it if they don’t know what to do with celery — it’s a waste of food and farmers’ time.

    Ring in the new

    Life, Gary Boyle, Published on 16/12/2013

    » Bangkok was different in February 1970, back when Dusit Thani first opened her doors onto the junction of Silom and Rama IV. Beer was ten baht, gas one baht a litre, a good hotel room eight dollars. Siam Centre was a copse of trees by a dusty roundabout. An original print ad for the hotel boasted of 'a wide choice of sophisticated supper clubs, Continental and Siamese restaurants, coffee shops and cocktail lounges.' The photo shows the building looking much as it does today, minus the towering downtown skyscrapers, which is precisely the appeal of this grand dame of Bangkok hospitality.

    » Every chocolate lover's dream sits right on Rama 4 Road, in central Bangkok, as a tempting siren of indulgent calories, glorious unctuous fat and nutrient rich cacao, beckoning passersby into its velvety rich, uniquely decorated vices.Chocolab is cleverly at street eye-level, right next to the entrance of the chic, still relatively new Sofitel So Bangkok, and sets a proposition that is nigh-on impossible to refuse. All of its elements conspire to invite you in and keep you submissively captive, in its meltingly sensational choco-experimentation.
