    » It doesn't matter whether an establishment is defined as a haute-cuisine restaurant or just a casual workplace of chefs, when it boasts such a prominent postscript like "Joel Robuchon", you can always expect no less than sublime world-class gastronomy.

    The game changer

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 09/12/2016

    » <b>The setting:</b> When we heard that The Reflexions had recently taken on its first lady head chef, Dutch national Roxanne Lange, we headed on right over to the Plaza Athénée. After all, this marks a new chapter in the restaurant's storied history. And, what a way to put a fresh interpretation on modern French cuisine -- by adding some warmly welcomed feminine and Dutch flavours to the mix. Chef Lange, having previously worked under Michelin Star guidance at the Savelberg, brings with her a wealth of knowledge in French cuisine as well as her training from Rotterdam too. The restaurant itself, tucked away on the third floor of the hotel, has dim and intimate lighting. The notes of a live piano, played by Jean Francois, The Reflexions resident French pianist, grace the space with sounds of jazz tunes interwoven haphazardly with classical and romantic all-time greats.

    Holey goes cold and creamy

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 09/12/2016

    » With cheesecakes and froyo on the rise in this city, there hasn't been much movement in ice cream and even less so artisanal gelato. So when I heard that Holey Artisan Bakery, which I had previously dubbed the best bakery in Bangkok, was opening an artisan gelato store, I immediately ditched my routine appointments with Llao Llao and Pablo to go try it out.

    Gym hacks

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 09/12/2016

    » Sorry (not sorry) fans of loud and colourful activewear, but trendy athletic wear is going back to the basics of moody tones, sharing aesthetics with practical fashion. To be honest, this has been a long time coming as mass fashion and design have been increasingly keen on cutting down frills. I mean just look at the iPhone 7. Who would have thought a few years ago that the sight of an earphone jack or even earphones themselves could be so unfashionable.

    The localised dane

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 09/12/2016

    » If you've ever sourced any basic kitchenware from Central, you may own something of Scanproducts and not even know it. Established 20 years ago as a premium Danish homeware company in Thailand, Scanproducts has in recent years come out with local brand that is more relatable to this country's middle class homemakers. We had a chat with the company's founder, Danish fellow Jens Viggo Bergsoe, to learn more about "local brand by Scanproducts", the climate surrounding home décor in Thailand and a bit of his personal life, which only furthers the Scandinavian reputation for being model people.

    The making of a soi

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 09/12/2016

    » 2016 has been full of ups and downs, highs and lows. It has, without a doubt, been an interesting year to say the least. So we can't help but wonder what 2017 has in store for us. Will Trump stick to his policies? Who knows. Will there be another car-related Thai hi-so drama for the public to scrutinise? Most likely. What is certain for Bangkokians though, is that our city will continue to change its landscape. Sadly, we think it may be for the worse, seeing as the new Bangkok governor's agenda includes projects to remove street vendors from Silom, Siam Square and Pratunam.
