    Nothing bitter about this man

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 06/07/2018

    » Bitterman, on Sala Daeng Soi 1, is a 40-year-old house complete with an atrium, full of plants. The restaurant also has leather chairs and tables inside. But since sitting outside in Bangkok is rare, the glass house is by far the most popular, especially during dinner and at weekends when brunch is served. It is also the best spot to be in the afternoon while the warm sun bathes you through the glass, which makes you forget you're in Bangkok for a wee bit. "Even though the concept of the restaurant is home cooking, I think it's a tad boring so I have changed the way we present the food. The best way to describe my menu is simple and sexy," laughs chef de la cuisine Enzo Dela Cruz.

    Trials and tribulations of Bangkok taxis

    News, Anchalee Kongrut, Published on 20/03/2017

    » The cab driver pressed on the accelerator, driving fast and furiously until I felt enough was enough; I ordered him to pull over, gave him the fare and stepped out of the car. Picking up a local passenger like me from a shopping mall on Sukhumvit Road is not a way for him to make much money. I bet he drove straight back along the same road to pick up tourists.

    Of rice and ramen

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 04/11/2016

    » The setting: Silom isn't shy of Japanese restaurants and ramen joints. Laden with hole-in-the-wall izakayas, tonkatsu dens and ramen stalls, you could do a Japanese food crawl just walking inside Thaniya Plaza. While office workers in other parts of the city enjoy their bowls of boat noodles, the Silom ones are probably tucking into piping-hot ramens during their lunch breaks.

    Bangkok songkran agendas

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/04/2013

    » OMB! We have five days off in a row because the cabinet kindly declared that this year's "official" Songkran break starts from today until Tuesday. Say what you will about PM Poo, but she is so right in giving us a long holiday since we can't function properly during this kind of heat anyway. Anyhoo, that's over 7,000 minutes we're supposed to wisely spend relaxing before going back to the grind on Wednesday. And even though some shops and places in Bangkok may be shut during the Thai New Year, there are plenty more options for celebrating. Here's what we suggest you do and, hopefully, you may also find a deeper meaning of Songkran Festival (besides throwing water at strangers) along the way. Happy splashing, everyone.
