    The rice president

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 07/04/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> Arroz is situated in a dainty house on the lower end of the leafy street of Soi 53. A quiet residential area that's been asking for an eatery that serves up something other than pizza and sushi.

    » In lieu of the opening of the Bangkok City Library (a four-story library that -- ironically -- is currently struggling to fill up its shelves with books), it's only fitting we celebrate the city's efforts to provide the public with something more useful than another condominium, shopping mall or public transport filled with new rail lines that don't interlink.

    Rika, uncaged

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 03/03/2017

    » Those familiar with the MMA scene in Thailand may have already heard of Rika Ishige. Her nickname, "The Smiling Assasin", should already give you a clue as to who she is. This chika isn't just another pretty face, she's also the first Thai female MMA fighter that will be competing at the ONE Championship (fb.com/ONEChampionship) happening next week. She talks to us about what it's like to date and train with her other half, what she thought of the Rousey-Nunes fight and the common misconceptions people have about MMA. Knock 'em out, Rika!

    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.

    Breaking bad news

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 27/01/2017

    » Now that 2016 is finally over, we can rest assured that all the bull**** and f**kery it brought with it will never be repeated. Right? RIGHT?! Bleh, who knows what the future has in store for us. Let's face it, this time last year the thought of Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States probably made you spit out your coffee or, if you're a hipster, choke on your kale juice. But then again, never say never, right?

    Carb loading-comfort

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 07/10/2016

    » <b>The setting:</b> The opening of Habito Mall has encouraged many Bangkokians -- whose preference for dining destinations usually won't extend far beyond Thong Lor's reach -- to actually venture a tiny bit further down Sukhumvit Road. This spanking new community mall is basically a melting pot of various cuisines -- albeit all relatively familiar to our palate -- where you're guaranteed to find something for everyone.

    Triple threat

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 28/10/2016

    » These three happy faces you see are the founders of TRIBE, the spanking new indoor cycling studio located in the bustling Ratchadamri neighbourhood. Business partners, they may be, but this trio have been friends since childhood. Their shared passion for spinning led them to create a totally new workout concept that was not only focused on exercise but also on building a community of like-minded individuals who share an interest in fitness, fashion and music. We caught up with Ploy Bhinsaeng, Pasu "Luang" Liptapanlop and Natapa "Joy" Sriyuksiri to find out more about the studio and what the best track is to spin to right now.

    Mouth-watering Mediterranean

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 13/03/2015

    » Mediterranean food often causes Bangkokians to rub their ears and raise their eyebrows in total confusion. Like any other cuisine, understanding its geographical origin is key, and several countries — Greece, Spain, Turkey, Italy, France — have coastlines along the Mediterranean Sea. With an increasing number of restaurants in Bangkok willing to venture beyond steaks and pizzas, our palates are beginning to expand, meaning there's no time like the present for a Mediterranean restaurant like Garibaldis to open in the heart of the city. With a spacious indoor and outdoor dining area, an open kitchen and a huge bar, the venue is perfect for a casual lunch. As night falls, the place buzzes with good vibes and funky jams. Who knows, you just might feel obligated to do a little salsa dancing (under the table with your feet). Free parking is provided — a huge bonus for anyone dreading the short stroll from Asok BTS station.

    For fusion's sake

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 03/03/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> There are two types of sushi restaurants in Bangkok. Ones where they serve up omakase in a setting so fancy you're probably too scared to let a cough slip out; then the casual ones where you can pretty much rock up in flip-flops ordering salmon rolls stuffed with goose liver, with no one blinking twice. Yuzuki is all about the latter.
