    Nang Nak at 20

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 26/07/2019

An adaptation of the country's most popular ghost tale about a wife who died in childbirth but stuck around as a spirit waiting for her husband to return from war, the film arrived carrying high hopes -- and exceeded all of them. Nang Nak, directed by Nonzee Nimibutr and written by Wisit Sasanatieng, unleashed an unprecedented momentum of enthusiasm and became the first Thai movie to blaze past the 100-million-baht mark at the box office.

    A modern Roman Holiday

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 27/09/2019

    » While a lot has changed at this favourite neighbourhood joint, not much has changed. Entering the warmly-light Roman trattoria, you may notice the new wall art, the dry ager and the salad and charcuterie marble table out front, which doubles up as a fresh pasta-making table during the day. The kitchen has been brought out front to the open, and accommodates the solo or couple diners who like sitting at the "chef's table" watching their food being prepared. This seating also provides a tete-a-tete with new head chef, Miro Mattalia.
