    Street and savoury

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 04/08/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> After being dubbed the world's street food capital for two years in a row by CNN, it seemed only proper that the first Michelin-starred street food restaurant, Hawker Chan, opened its doors to Bangkokians almost a month ago. Hailing from Singapore, this is the restaurant's second venture out of its home country, the first being Taiwan. The restaurant has opened in a pretty accessible location on the fifth floor of Terminal 21. Much like its original Singaporean location, it's not a stranger to long queues, but customer flow has definitely improved since they opened. Still, don't be surprised if all their tables are full during lunch and dinner, especially on weekends.

    Summer treats

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 03/05/2019

    » If you're like me, you've probably been asking the same thing for the past month or so now: when is this heat going to end? I know I'm supposed to be used to it living in Bangkok but I think we can all agree that the heat is terrible and that our weather apps are lying when they say it only 35°C outside. However, we do have a decision to make, either we let the heat get to us (which it already has, kind of) or we can enjoy what the summer has to offer: a number of seasonal summer treats. Yes, this heat has made it ripe for a number of treats to come out of the woodwork, enticing us to enjoy them. And so, because we truly do love you, dear readers, we've done the heavy lifting and tried some of these treats for you. Which ones should you try and which ones should you stay away from?

    Holiday hangover

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 19/04/2019

    » Songkran may be over but if you're like me, you'd be suffering from a severe case of holiday hangover. As much as we'd all like to remain in limbo with no work or responsibilities to worry about, we all have to face reality and get back to our usual routines. But that doesn't mean we have to jump into being all hectic again. It's good to carve out some "me time" or time with a few friends to relax and chill, even it's for just a few hours and not the three days we were so generously given over Songkran. With good company, it's time to let your hair down for another new year (see what we did there?), have a good brunch while reading a book, chat over a few drinks or maybe go on a food and shopping trip. We've got a few new places that you'll want to check out.

    » Themed cafes are the latest craze popping all over the Big Mango and what's not to be crazy about? After all, would you rather sit in a quaint little cafe or would your rather be in a place with walls adorned with bright coloured-rainbows in a unicorn onesie, or wearing a mermaid fin while you feast on a rainbow cake and slurp on a rainbow slushie? OK, to each their own, I guess. But if you're one of the latter and want a more heightened cafe experience then you've come to the right place or should I say you're reading the right piece. Here are seven themed cafes to indulge yourself in Bangkok.

    Artisanal eats

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 04/05/2018

    » Technology is a blessing and a curse. It makes life easier and in turn makes us lazy and have short attention spans. We want things done quick and we want things now, and we've lost the appreciation for the art and process of handmade products and the skill it requires because hey, if robots can do it, why can't people? That makes things made by hand more special despite the fact that that's the way things have been done for years. Handmade means nothing, however, if it also isn't high quality. Luckily, the Big Mango is home to a number of stores that produce top-tier artisanal products -- more specifically, artisanal food, which we think makes it more special because nothing is more special than food, right? You may not be aware of some of these stores (we admit we ourselves weren't aware some of them existed) but hey, that's why we're here -- to tell you about them so all you have to do is feast and enjoy. Here are five artisanal eats in Bangkok that you should try.

    Just a couple of foodies

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 09/02/2018

    » It's that time of the year when couples come out in full-force, restaurants are jampacked, roses and chocolates are more expensive, and single people are more bitter than usual. Yes, St Valentine's Day is upon us and that means couples all over the place. We could have just given you a list of places you could go to for a special dinner (actually, we did -- check our Food listings). But in lieu of the upcoming "festivities", if you could call it that, we decided to round up a number of foodie power couples to get to know their favourite restos and what they do during on this romantic day. Perhaps we noobs could learn a thing or two from them.
