    Handpicked hamper

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 16/12/2016

    » If we had it our way, the government would reconsider its stance on free speech and developers would stop building so many bloody malls. But since that's not how the world works (or at least Thailand anyway), we think it's probably a better idea to save our breaths, shut our gobs and indulge in the finer things in life instead. After all, it is the holiday season, which automatically means that calories don't count and three glasses is a perfectly decent number of vino to be had.

    Matcha mix-up

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 02/09/2016

    » Raving about Japanese produce is a common trait in many of us -- and to be fair, their cows do look a lot healthier than ours. Green tea and matcha in particular, is no different. If you're a green tea latte fan, we know how much you love the aroma, intensity, overt sweetness and what's probably a dangerous amount of calories that's involved in making this beverage.

    Wallet-friendly wagyu

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 20/05/2016

    » Plenty of beef lovers out there will understand it when we say that not many things in life could ever amount to the satisfaction of tucking into a piece of steak cooked to your absolute liking. The birth of your first child, maybe. Winning the lottery, possibly. But aside from those occasions, cutting into a medium rare rib eye that has perfect marbling is rather hard to beat.

    Swish and sizzle

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 25/03/2016

    » Now, we know Salaya may seem a bit out of the way from somewhere like mid-Sukhumvit, but our venture to this low-key part of outer Bangkok proved to be more than worthwhile. Surprisingly, it only took us half an hour to get there, which is about the same amount of time you'd spend being stuck in Thong Lor's traffic on the weekend. Despite the fact that the owners are the same people behind Shabu King, this new joint is vastly different. Forget the lacklustre atmosphere of cramped spaces (like most shabu destinations) and say hello to a stunning countryside-style Japanese barn. The high ceilings let in plenty of natural light during the day time, which will no doubt impress any Instagrammer out there looking to snap up some serious #foodporn worthy photos of shabu shabu platters and sushi rolls.

    Sugar, ice and everything nice

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 01/04/2016

    » Good news, people. The National Research Department of All Delicious Things That Are Apparently Bad For You has made a new scientific discovery: low-calorie diets are actually bad for you. It is, in fact, better to consume fatty, sugary, carb-loaded foods, such as doughnuts, ice cream cake and chocolate frappes. Y'know, like how the Neanderthals were doing it for thousands of years before the vegans took over the world with their quinoa and chia seeds?

    Healthy helpings

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 18/12/2015

    » Now, I know it's Christmastime, and the farthest thing on your mind is eating clean and calorie-counting. Can you really blame us for wanting a good roast and a huge slice of pie? 'Tis the season, after all, for indulgent meals.

    The bread winner

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 27/11/2015

    » Desperate times call for desperate measures, and when you’re living in Bangkok, a city that seems to have everything — apart from a branch of Pret A Manger — to curb your sandwich cravings, you look to Google for a solution.

    The chilling beast of Thong Lor

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 07/08/2015

    » Ice cream will always be a big hit in a sweltering country like Thailand. So what happens when you represent an ice cream brand with a bright blue storefront and cutesy monsters?

    Winter pop-ups winter

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 28/11/2014

    » Noticed something different about Bangkok? No, it’s not the traffic-free roads or that Thais have stopped taking photos of their meals before eating (ha! Don’t be ridiculous). We’ll give you a clue: it’s in the air and it’s making us a little less miserable. It’s the beginning of winter, or, as we know it — the extremely short period of the year when the whole country gets giddy over a two-to-four degree dip in temperature. Nevertheless, we’re going to take full advantage of this and guide you to this winter’s best seasonal pop-ups.

    A Parisian affair

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 10/10/2014

    » If you've seen the movie Hugo, there's really not much need to explain the concept and ideas behind the restaurant. But for those who haven't watched the touching adventure drama set in the 1930s about an orphaned boy who lives behind the walls of a train station in Paris, listen up. Upon entering, guests are greeted with the uplifting sound of jazz music and dim lighting that accentuates the careful detailing of the restaurant's industrial decor. The casual, funky vibe and sound of bartenders shaking away their fancy cocktail concoctions add to the restaurant's eclectic charm. You can almost feel the cool Parisian breeze if you sit in the right spot with the air-con blowing in your face and forget that you're in Ekamai for a little while.
