    Meaningful Journeys

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 24/05/2019

    » Tourism can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it can generate profit for the economy while on the other it can exploit natural resources. This problem is all too relevant in Thailand but there are niche travel companies that offer unique experiences providing positive benefits to our culture. If you're bored of going to the typical Thai tourist spots and long to do things more than the average tourist, then look no further. Guru complied a list of travel companies making a difference in the country.

    Street Food Success

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 17/05/2019

    » After working as a seamstress for several years and losing everything in a fire, Supinya Junsuta, better known as Jay Fai, would go on to become the owner and sole chef of her eponymous street food restaurant. Recognisable by her use of giant woks over two charcoal braziers, ski mask goggles and exuberant energy when cooking, her shophouse restaurant earned a Michelin star in 2017, becoming the first street food restaurant to do so. The eatery has become a popular foodie destination for locals and tourists alike, who are eager to try her signature dishes such as her stir-fried noodles, tom yum and of course, the crab omelette. The veteran chef was recently featured in the Netflix series Street Food, Thailand being one of the nine Asian countries highlighted. We chat with Jay Fai on what it's like to be where she is today.

    Crafted goodness

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 17/05/2019

    » Eating puff pies has been a pleasant childhood memory as far as I can remember in which my mum would come home from work with the golden crusted treats. Imagine my delight when, during a recent stroll amid the hustle and bustle of Siam Center, I discovered a small, red bakery on the M floor. What caught my eye immediately was the staff constantly baking new batches through the glass through windows for the droves of people lining up for a taste. I knew this was something I couldn't pass up especially since it evoked childhood memories.

    Hop Til You Drop

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 12/04/2019

    » Established by the folks behind the Craftpital bar at W District, Hoppy HRS lies just past the open-air food court between BTS Phra Khanong and Ekamai, on the even side of the road. Inspired from their trip to Chicago and their love for street food in the region (namely hot dogs), owners Sahachol "Micky" Chairat and Phatphitcha "Minnie" Suksangwarn decided to create a bar that could serve as a casual hangout spot where their friends can gather after work and enjoy locally crafted beer and sodas, as well as hot dogs. The small and cosy space gives customers a chance to relax on the couch near the DJ booth and sing their hearts out to 80s-90s alt rock. Anybody up for some karaoke to songs by Oasis?
