    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 24/08/2018

Partnering with Ban Taklang in Surin and the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation, Dinkin produces "elephant dung coffee". However, production of Black Ivory Coffee provides valuable income for elephant care-giving families, as well as students who are taught how to wash and dry the coffee. The mission of Black Ivory Coffee is to take a negative situation, namely human-elephant conflict and turn it into a positive one by creating a luxury product that helps not hurts elephants, as Dinkin tells Guru.

    A reluctant star

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 19/12/2017

    » Jay Fai usually opens her shop around 3pm. But these days, no matter how early you get to Mahachai Road, it's likely you'll find a commotion and a line of people waiting for a seat. Plastic chairs have been put out on the footpath, but an army of cameras and phone-toting would-be customers still stand in front of the kitchen and reservation tables, hoping to catch a glimpse of the "omelette queen" herself.

    Fine (home) dining

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 15/09/2017

    » There are people who like eating out at fancy restaurants helmed by Michelin-starred chefs and making it a special occasion. There are also people who prefer home-cooked meals and opt for simplicity over lavish dining. But who's to say you can't have both? Chef Pam Utharntharm is doing just that at The Table. It's not a conventional "restaurant" because she serves patrons at her home and cooks their meal in the comfort of her own kitchen. Guru talked to her about how she's bringing home-cooked Michelin quality food to Bangkokian foodies and helping them experience -- to use the words of the eternally wise Hannah Montana -- the best of both worlds.

    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.
