    Style for jam

    Richard Mcleish, Published on 07/02/2014

    » As Bangkokians become willing to brave unknown postcodes, new boroughs are emerging across the city from Sathon to Samsen. The latest spot to reach beyond the BTS is Never Ending Summer, landing firmly on the muddy banks of Thon Buri. And the reach is rewarded with extra space, charm and niche. From old warehouses (medicine, ice and battery factories), architect Duangrit Bunnag has fashioned The Jam Factory - the new home of his design office, a gallery, bookstore and Never Ending Summer - in an enclave of style for all the senses. An old ice factory, the restaurant affords 16 tables easily (70+ pax), all with a view of the open kitchen at the back and trimmed with industrial specks from decades past, artworks and rustic fittings. The result is a deep-pocketed architect's romp in a new restaurant motif for the city that seems ready for it and more.

    Sense and Sensi-bility

    Guru, Richard Mcleish, Published on 14/02/2014

    » THE SET-UP: Engaging all the senses and sensibilities of the Bangkok dining scene is newcomer Sensi down in Sathon. It’s a house conversion on a sleepy soi of Narathiwat — an area with plenty of potential midway between Sathon and Asok. At the helm in the kitchen is 28-year-old Chef Christian Martena, poached from Italian stalwart Opus down in Silom (which also produced Chef Francesco from Medici at Hotel Muse) by his savvy business partners. His wife Clara is doing front of house, which creates a particularly homey feel, with a visit akin to an evening with the couple at their own home. They are willing hosts and it shows. Inside the house are well-spaced tables, enough for 54 pax, which might not be enough if its popularity continues to rise.

    Spectrum, Richard Mcleish, Published on 28/07/2013

    » Myanmar has become the focus of much media attention over the last few years. It's a nation undergoing huge change within a culture stunted by 50 years of military rule. But while the generals kept Myanmar isolated and out of much of the world media's spotlight, one photographer _ Nic Dunlop _ trained a curious and critical lens on the country for more than 20 years. Now he's sharing his insights in a detailed new book about the country, Brave New Burma.
