    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 11/08/2017

    » Among the many food stalls of W District one should keep an eye out for the food stand with TCMB.CO written in big blue letters overhead. This is home to The Cookie Monster Burger (TCMB). These handmade burgers come in two sizes, the first being regular (ranging from B140 for pork to B220 for beef patty with bacon), also known as a smash burger, a variety made popular in the United States. The patty is cooked and pressed on the grill, which expands the surface area of the burger, allowing for a solid pile-up of toppings.

    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 28/07/2017

    » Did you know that there is a way to make money every time you spend it? Say hello to ShopBack, the future of e-commerce. ShopBack is a mobile phone app with a lengthy list of stores, vendors, and services offering the cheapest deals on everything from air travel to high heels and every transaction made through this app rewards shoppers with a decent percentage of their cash back. How is this possible? ShopBack operates solely off commission from these vendors and services. They take a majority of that commission and return it to the buyer. At the forefront of ShopBack is Kawin Prachanukul, a young and ambitious marketing guru who is the co-founder and country head of ShopBack Thailand. He was raised in Bangkok and has a degree in marketing from Thammasat Business School. He's been in e-commerce since leaving university, joining the operations team at Lazada, and then moving to Uber in 2014. Through his expertise and experience, he's made the leap to country head of this revolutionary start-up and was thrilled to give Guru the round-up on ShopBack.

    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 21/07/2017

    » The Setting: Surrounded by a jungle of business towers and high rise condos is Chunky. From the outside it looks upscale yet modest in comparison to its neighbours. A step inside will reveal a cosy loft space with high ceilings and generous amounts of sunlight, creating an open ambience. The modest yet sophisticated interior makes it feel like you're stepping into someone's high-rise loft. There's plenty of seating and a prep kitchen ready to whip up drinks on the ground floor while a pleasant little loft for more intimate seating can be found up the staircase at the back of the restaurant.

    Land of the free, home of the breakfast!

    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 14/07/2017

    » A quick, minute-long walk from Asoke sky train is all it takes to find The New Yorker. We recommend you start with the Everything bagel (B105). Warm, crunchy and toasted with a generous side of cream cheese. To drink we recommend the Cappuccino (B75). Steamed right in front of you, it is a refreshingly smooth and silky start to your morning; they also have freshly squeezed orange juice (B35). Among the most popular breakfast items is the Waffle (B155); and rightly so! Made with homemade batter, it is crisp, fluffy, light and buttery. Served with a side of 100% pure maple syrup, you can lather it on like a rich sugary dressing. Great for sharing.
