    Say no to plastic bags

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 16/11/2018

    » 7-Eleven announced on Nov 7 their plan "to reduce and cease" the use of plastic at its stores nationwide. It's about time! Can they stop giving away individually wrapped plastic spoons and forks while they're at it?

    Soul food

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 16/11/2018

    » Caribbean cuisine is a rare find in the Big Mango but the arrival of Jamaican Eatz is making it a little more available to us Bangkokians. Established by two New Yorkers who found themselves missing it, they took matters into their own hands and established Jamaican Eatz. For a year, they did wholesale, selling pies to different shops and restos, but it was only a month ago that they put up a stall at W District in Phra Khanong.

    P is for pancake and party

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 16/11/2018

    » Pancakes are a breakfast favourite for a lot of people and they're just hands-down pretty dang delicious and awesome (if you're a pancake hater... uh, why?). But aside from that, they've also become a starting point for friendships and bonds to be made thanks to Robin Vogelaar. For the past few years, Vogelaar has travelled around the world and hosted events in different countries with a simple premise: he cooks Dutch pancakes, people meet up and eat, and have a good time. It's a simple thing yet it has gotten the attention of others that Vogelaar was able to take the TEDx stage at Abidjian, Côte d'Ivoire. On November 24, he's bringing the Dutch Pancake Party to the Big Mango. Guru spoke to him on everything pancake party.

    Dinner under the stars

    Guru, Nianne-Lynn Hendricks, Published on 16/11/2018

    » With the Bangkok dining scene bursting at its seams, hotel dining has taken a back seat. More so for hotels in the 'burbs. Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok is more of a business hotel, with a convention centre attached to it. But, it does have a few good dining outlets -- like Blue Sky. Perhaps the only rooftop bar in that part of town, Blue Sky offers a panoramic view of the suburbs from 24-storey high.

    Final curtain call

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 09/11/2018

    » For nearly 50 years, the Dusit Thani Bangkok has welcomed the likes of royalty, dignitaries, celebrities and common folk. From the late US president Ronald Reagan to singer Enrique Iglesias to an inconsequential magazine writer like me, the hotel has had a rich history. But despite its age, it's looking good and isn't slowing down at all, even if it is closing its doors in early January. Sure, it's only temporary but it's closing for a pretty sizeable amount of time -- at least three and a half years. However, does that mean there's nothing at the Dusit Thani except for weathered walls, an aged building and an establishment that's on its way out? Nothing could be farther from the truth.

    The great outdoors

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 09/11/2018

    » If you have felt the crisp, cool Bangkok mornings, then you're probably aware that the cool season is about to kick-off. While we may not have four seasons in Thailand, we definitely have camping season. The slightly lowered temperatures means this is the perfect time to spend a few days in the mountains surrounded by nature instead of skyscrapers. The word "camping" may give rise to a few assumptions -- roughing it out in the wild, having to rely on your wits and limited resources, being out in the open with the possibility of dangerous animals lurking about, sleeping in a tiny cramped tent, and worse of all, having to go to the "toilet" in a hole in the ground. But it's 2018 and there ways to go camping without having to suffer such discomfort.

    An introduction to Franco-Chinese dining

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 09/11/2018

    » Thong Lor's Arena 10 entertainment hub is known for its nightlife hotspots of bars and clubs. However, standing out within the hustle and bustle of it all is Prelude Restaurant & Bar with its fine dining presentation, relaxed vibe, tasting menu and cocktails. With an emphasis on using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients and combining their love of French and Chinese food, and cooking techniques, Prelude is named after their aim -- to introduce diners their Franco-Chinese fusion cuisine, as well as being the first restaurant by owners Holly Chiu and chef Calvin Wong, the latter graduating from the Culinary Institute of America.

    Whole Lotta Brunch

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 09/11/2018

    » Health-conscious people may have already tried Brunch Bowl's delivery service, enjoying their set meal plans and handmade cold-pressed juices since 2014. Owner Kornbongkoj "Paang" Thongthew has taken the next step in expanding her business -- a Brunch Bowl Happy & Healthy cafe, launched in March. The cafe ensures that their already fresh ingredients are even more, well, fresh especially when served at the source rather than through delivery.
