    Brunch, Normita Thongtham, Published on 08/11/2015

    Raising the (rooftop’s) bar

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 02/05/2014

    » A good rooftop place is worth getting your ears popped in an elevator, climbing some additional stairs, risking your fresh-from-salon hairdo and getting over your fear of heights for. The Roof is a recent entry into the dining scene and proves to be quite a contender with its high altitude and attitude. The venue offers a modern and stylish vibe with music that isn’t intrusive. The view from the venue is very generous and almost unspoiled (except for one corner where a nearby condo stands too close) and the seats are arranged in a way that almost everyone gets a front-row view. Lovers can enjoy some eye-locking and snuggling in high-back couches while friends can lounge about at dining booths. The weekday crowd consists of international hotel guests and office workers looking to unwind while the weekend sees friends and lovers.

This is because, as it has come down to us from the past, rice has changed constantly. As the natural environment, the weather, water sources, and the character of the soil have changed over time, rice, too, has changed naturally.
