    Meet Bangkok's best BBQ

    Guru, Adam Kohut, Published on 21/08/2015

    » A blue neon sign lures the hungry into The Smokin' Pug, which is perhaps Bangkok's only true American barbecue restaurant. There are chains offering pale imitations of the fabled cuisine, but that, to an eye even remotely trained, reveal themselves to be imposters, cowering behind shields of rubbery steak, smothered in a viscous armour of cloying, pre-bottled sauce.


    Oh man, are we baked

    » There's one thing for certain about EmQuartier — at some point during your luxury shopping trip you're going to suffer from acute exhaustion. So why not take a break from spending daddy's money on Gucci and Dior, and instead use that unearned cash to refuel on something a lot less expensive — and a lot more delicious? We're talking brownies, baby. 


    Get away, simply and organically

    » The Aleenta Hua Hin Resort & Spa is not a new face in the hospitality game — its 26 rooms, nestled on a private beach (which is cleaned three times a day) in Pran Buri, about 30km outside of Hua Hin, have for 14 years been a mainstay for those seeking semi-reclusive getaways. 


    Bold Italics

    Guru, Adam Kohut, Published on 24/07/2015

    » Italics's Soi Ruam Rudi location is one of tough competition. With neighbours like Cafe Tartine and Hyde and Seek, this four-month-old eatery must do all it can to live up to its "innovative Italian" subtitle to stay relevant.


    Notes from a big country

    Life, Adam Kohut, Published on 29/07/2015

    » On the second night of my trip home, my family celebrated my father's birthday at a large seafood restaurant, one link in a chain of locations scattered across the southern United States. My younger brother, Gatlin, who is 11, ordered something called the "Mixed Seafood Grill". What arrived, half-an-hour later, carried in by a waiter lurching under its horrific weight, can only be described as nautical holocaust. Heaped on a platter the size of a manhole cover were enormous chunks of fish, scallops you could use as hockey pucks, shrimp that could be worn as bracelets.


    This chicken's a godsend 

    Guru, Adam Kohut, Published on 19/06/2015

    » You'll have to be spry if you intend to chow down at the Angel Wings food truck — besides a weekly appearance at Wishbeer every Wednesday, it currently has no fixed location. But take the time to track it down and you won't be disappointed — owner-chef Matt Hammond and girlfriend AJ Puntiwa dish out some of the best chicken wings (B120 for six) in Bangkok.


    He ain't heavy (he's only 11)

    Life, Adam Kohut, Published on 25/06/2015

    » Live abroad for long enough and you start to lose touch. The things you took for granted back home - your friends, your family, your Shih Tzu - start to become relics of a faded reality. You are absent for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmases. Your loved ones wrinkle and shrink as they are dragged behind time's insectile scuttle.


    Marcel tickles our France-y

    Guru, Adam Kohut, Published on 26/06/2015

    » Tucked in at the end of the up-and-coming Sathon Soi 10 is the two-month-old Marcel, a casual, two-storey French bar and bistro offering tapas, beautiful main courses and a helluva cocktail list. It's owned by two French guys (Louis and Ugo) and a Thai woman (Pom). The narrow downstairs acts mostly as bar, which is long and wooden and softly lit by funky light bulbs with filaments more twisted than an M Night Shyamalan film. A black-and-white chequered floor adds to the vibe, and food served on black plates provides a chic layer of class.


    Cycling's just to die for

    Bangkok Comic Con's back alley

    » '[As Thais] we only adopt, poorly. We're not creating anything new. But such is the way of the Thai mentality. We don't lead. We follow. We want something we're used to. We like imitations. As content consumers, we like junk food."
