    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.

    Tea for me (and you, maybe)

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 11/11/2016

    » Afternoon tea in Bangkok often brings to mind posh hotels, an uptight atmosphere and a price tag that could have easily bought you three decent meals. And as decadent as they come, sadly not many are able to replicate the ambiance of classic British tea houses, nor have they found a remedy for the plague of crappy clotted cream and bland sandwiches.

    Truth tags

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 24/06/2016

    » Bangkok isn’t perfect. It’s ridden with countless flaws and things that don’t actually make any sense. Like the building of more condominiums when there’s no demand for them or constructing a flyover bridge with a concrete pole right in the middle of it. Heck, half the city is probably one giant health and safety hazard waiting to collapse to make the front page news. But hey, it’s home.

    Bangokian chat-up lines

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 03/06/2016

    » Welcome to the first Friday of June. In other words, holy sh** we’re half way through the calendar year. More often than not, this is where most people reach breaking point. Boredom sets in, energy levels plummet to zero and you find yourself unable to suppress the sort of emotions that are only deemed appropriate to express within the privacy of your own home or the office toilet.

    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.

    Pizza Massilia, all grown up

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 26/02/2016

    » Wander down Soi Ruam Rudee and you’re guaranteed to be extremely well-fed even before you hit its halfway point. But one can never have too many Italian joints, especially when you live in Bangkok. Thus, the recently opened Pizza Massilia Ruam Rudee was welcomed to the neighbourhood with open arms. It helps too, that the restaurant has already made a name for itself, dishing out great pizza during last year’s food truck boom. Its restaurant counterpart, though, is operating on a much larger scale, with more items on the menu and top-notch service in a striking locale with a late baroque interior and pastel hues. Visually stunning, the aesthetics take a pizzeria experience to the next level, as well as reflect the unique stance on cuisine.

    Cream of the cup

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 19/02/2016

    » In a sweltering city like Bangkok, there can never be too many ice cream joints — I’d be perfectly content if the government decided to replace every 7-Eleven with an ice cream parlour. Our continuous craving for gourmet desserts (be it genuine desire to satiate a sweet tooth or the never-ending search of Instagram gratification) means institutions such as Swensen’s and Haagen-Dazs no longer have quite the pull as they did 10 years ago. Instead, they have become something of a last resort, like when you find yourself stuck in an unfamiliar mall.

    Cards against Bangkokians

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 19/02/2016

    » If you’re familiar with this beautiful black box, it’s probably because you, like us, have an extremely dry and bitter sense of humour. Or you’re just a plain horrible person who has been to Game Over bar way too many times. Either way, you can’t deny the Cards Against Humanity’s popularity, with its added extension packs and a couple of international editions adding to the mayhem.

    Nomad's land

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 22/01/2016

    » Sun, sand and sea are no longer the only features that Phuket has to offer. Pristine beaches and clear blue skies are usually the images we conjure up with every mention of the famed Southern island province, but the recent trend in Phuket's hospitality scene has seen some of the most stunning resorts moving away from beachfront and inland, toward lush verdant valleys.

    Where there's smoke...

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 29/01/2016

    » The set-up: If you need proof as to why Bangkok is just as deserving of the “foodie capital” title as Hong Kong and Singapore, pay Il Fumo at visit. Powerhouse trio Choti Leenutaphong, Debby Tang and chef Luca Appino, responsible for Bottega’s nostalgic comfort and exceeding our cocktail expectations at Vesper, are now making us swoon over charcoal-grilled and dry-aged beef.
