    Flavours, finesse and a dash of philosophy

    Guru, Narada Sai-ngam, Published on 09/06/2017

    » Chef Kongwuth "Kong" Chaiwongkachon graduated with a Grand Diploma from Le Corden Bleu Dusit and is a notable name in the culinary scene. He first came into our radar as the chef of Fire & Dine at Asiatique, where he created a number of delicious fusion dishes. Later, while working as the head chef of Japanese restaurant Ren at Dhara Dhevi Chiang Mai, he won over Iron Chef Japan in Thailand's Iron Chef competition. He has recently embarked on his biggest challenge yet by opening his own restaurant, Locus Native Food Lab in Chiang Rai. Surrounded by nature, the restaurant serves dinner by reservation only, with no more than 20 seats per night, to make the experience special to both him and his diners. We chatted with him about his culinary journey so far.

    The girl behind the paintings

    Guru, Narada Sai-ngam, Published on 26/05/2017

    » Even though it's located on the edge of Bangkok, we made sure we were there at the opening of Anchalee "Ja" Arayapongpanit's art exhibition at ARDEL Gallery of Modern Art. This is her third solo show and it's named "Thriller and Horror". Her artworks are distinctive through their strong portrayal of women, essentially big-eyed cartoon versions of the artist herself. This time round, Ja put herself inside her favourite movie scenes from thriller and horror genres. The shy artist talked to us about the messages behind her paintings which are on display at ARDEL Gallery of Modern Art (goo.gl/iQDoq8) until June 25. Some of them have already been sold.

    Guru, Narada Sai-ngam, Published on 21/04/2017

    » Electronic duo X0809 (X-O-Eight-O-Nine) has pushed many boundaries in the Thai music scene in a way that we rarely see. Note Panayanggool, best known for being first runner-up in the seventh season of The Star and Anya "Yale" Muangkote first met at Chula due to a shared interest in music and sports, before eventually forming X0809. The dynamic duo produces their own music with unconventional style and visuals, having released English-language singles like the dark and hypnotic -30 and the more catchy HO. The colourful music video of the latter, the duo's latest single, has amassed over one million views on the band's Facebook page alone within one month. Their fresh sound has reached both Thai and international audiences and they have represented Thailand at various music festivals. We had a fun chat with the duo ahead of their upcoming EP, X. Check them out at fb.com/x0809.

    While the kitties NAP, we nibble

    Guru, Narada Sai-ngam, Published on 14/04/2017

    » Over the past few years, animal cafes have proven to be a thing in Thailand, judging by the number of ones operating in Bangkok and major provinces like Chiang Mai and Phuket. And cat cafes are the first subset of this group that have pawed their way into purr-pularity (two puns intended).

    From Barcelona to Bangkok

    Guru, Narada Sai-ngam, Published on 07/04/2017

    » Since settling in Bangkok in 2009, Spanish painter and graphic designer Daniel Monfort Gil continues to express his perspective on the Big Mango through art. His paintings depict ordinary characters in various everyday-settings while portraying the contrasts and liveliness of the beautifully busy Bangkok. The 42-year-old artist had numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout his 23 year painting career. He had his first gallery show in Thailand called "Bangkok, Anytime" and published a book of the same name in 2014. We talked with Daniel about his work and life and his second solo exhibition titled "Bangkok, Anytime. Our World" at Serindia Gallery, O.P. Garden (Tue-Sun 11am-7pm, Charoen Krung Soi 36, fb.com/serindiagallery, 02-238-6410.). The exhibition runs until Apr 30.

    Bossed up!

    Guru, Narada Sai-ngam, Published on 17/03/2017

    » To make it easier for customers to track down, Panini Mafia has opened its first brick-and-mortar shop in addition to its original food truck. Although compact in size, the newly-opened store makes you feel welcomed with its cosy vibe and the affable chef Angelo. The ceiling is painted with a map of Italy, as a tribute to where pasta and paninis come from (duh). The half-bricked walls feature the restaurant's logo on the left, with the menu written on a mirror to the right.
