    Farmer brothers

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 31/08/2018

    » Mitdanai "Port" and Phundanai "Peat" Sathavonmanee co-founded CORO FIELD (fb.com/corofieldTH), a Japanese-style agro-tourist destination in Ratchaburi, in 2015. Since then, the brothers have branched out with a café in Esplanade Ratchada and a dessert shop in CentralWorld while Coro Field thrives as an example of what agriculture 4.0 looks like. We talked to them about their green ambition to plant a seed for modern farming while helping Thai farmers.

    Taking noodle up a notch

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 16/02/2018

    » The Setting: A kuay tiew experience doesn't have to mean a quick shophouse meal where all the tables have the flimsy pink papers for wiping everything and plastic jugs filled with tea that look like they have never been washed. If the idea of kuay tiew has become uneventful, Mamarin Noodles can spice it up for you (lame food pun intended). You see, the new kuay tiew restaurant highlights a Ban Beung (a district in Chon Buri) variation of the popular street food while taking it up a notch with the cosy ambience and, most importantly, quality ingredients.

    Banh mi and bourbon

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 05/01/2018

    » The Setting: Not only Happy Endings, a new restaurant in Sala Daeng Soi 1, should pique your interest with its double entendre name (intentional or not) but also its contemporary take on Vietnamese cuisine. I climbed a green metal staircase, passing the restaurant's name spelt in handwritten lowercase with neon lights and opened a double-panel door to a casual space. Think bare ceiling with pipes running along it and exposed beams.

    Cafe with a good cause

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 29/12/2017

    » It's not everyday that your meal comes with a healthy helping of social awareness. To my best knowledge, Dine In The Dark at Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit hires blind staff, while KFC employed deaf staff at three of their branches several years ago.

    The food rescuer

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 13/10/2017

    » Tanaporn "Faii" Oi-isaranukul (second from left) is a donor relations coordinator and food hygienist at ThaiHarvest-SOS (fb.com/thaiharvestsos, thaiharvestsos.org), a local food rescue foundation which raises awareness around food waste and combats it. So far, it has rescued 65 tonnes of edible excess food and collected around 120 tonnes in scraps of food to make compost. One kilo of food provides up to three meals. Do the maths. They have provided 195,000 meals for those in need such as refugees and orphans. And, for every B1,000 spent, they serve 50 meals. Faii, a food science graduate from King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, tells us about the budding organisation and how you can help out.

    When textbooks get it oh-so-wrong

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 26/05/2017

    » Textbooks are meant to inform learners of facts -- not alternative forms of fiction -- on a particular subject. They also provide students with information on things relevant to them, helping them to navigate their lives and make sense of the world.

    Ooh la la

    » <B>The setting:</B> If you've been to the ground floor of Siam Paragon before, you know it's an air-conditioned playground for foodies. I will go as far as saying that it's a dining ecosystem with a vast selection of kiosks, cafes and restaurants for you to choose from (and chomp on).

    Rebel with a Closet

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 24/03/2017

    » Have you ever wondered what Sumati Sivasiamphai, our former illustrious editor, has been up to? It may seem like she's been keeping a low profile but it turns out she has been juggling several exciting projects. The Emory University graduate has been writing her own fashion blog that has a Thai-Indian POV, called Rebel with a Closet (rebelwithacloset.com, fb.com/rebelwithacloset, IG: @rebelwithacloset), enjoying marital bliss, launching an online jewellery business called Marry Me Diamonds (marrymediamonds.com, fb.com/marrymediamonds, IG: @marrymediamonds) and preparing herself for motherhood. Woah, that's a lot. We decided to catch up with Sumati and had a chat about style, selling bling online and proposing tips.

    Pizza from a conveyor belt

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 28/10/2016

    » <b>The setting</b>: Yep, you read that right. Someone did something quite mind-blowing by bringing together the sushi conveyor belt and pizza. It's perhaps a world's first too. Pizza King, which shares the same address with Limoncello in Thong Lor Soi 9, serves up pizza toppings on the conveyor belt to let you choose what you want to have on your very own Italian-style pizza. Whether you want to describe this unique restaurant as "kaiten-pizza", "rotation pizza" or a "pizza-go-round", the good news is that the main ingredient isn't a pure gimmick.
