Creativity knows no boundaries. And leftover could be turned into a new, tasty, hearty dish. Case in point is the heirloom delicacies from Nai Lert's family whose economically-wise recipes have been perpetuated now into the fourth generation.
This is an eating guide to Bangkok Old Town or Rattanakosin Island. This area contains Bangkok’s ultimate gems, which make them mandatory sites for anyone visiting town. It is a long shot trying to compile all the goodies in the area, but here’s our attempt. Bon appetit! View this post on Instagram After four lunches, this definitely (and finally) is dinner. Thank you @yuwachana of...
If you have just one meal in Thailand, curry and rice or Khao Gaeng should be the one to try. If you are into the real, traditional ways of Thai eating, that is. The meal is colourful with myriads of choices - all to be eaten with steamed rice. Enjoy!
It was a media lunch, a house-full, prior to the real pop-up events, which were all sold-out. The chef was the award-winning, out-going, and friendly Dave Pynt. Hailing from Perth, Australia, Chef Pynt of Burnt Ends in Singapore (small, excruciatingly difficult to book) offers modern Australian BBQ.

One of Bangkok's premium, five-star hotels, The Okura Prestige Bangkok's neat and meticulous features reflect the strong traits of 'Omotenashi' or the Japanese hospitality with extra care in all details.

Recently, I found myself going back to Bangkok Old Town, or the Rattanakosin Island, a lot. I think this is because I have come full circle, and my accumulative readings brought new lights to things I grew up with. So, here I am, trying to get things nice and easy for fellow travellers who are visiting Bangkok, Thailand. Hope you have fun and get the most out of your days here in town. :D
Nai Lert Park Heritage Home was built in 1915 as an out-of-town retreat for Nai Lert Sresthaputra or Phraya Bhakdinorasresth and his family. A lot of stories can be learnt from this house. After all, Nai Lert was bestowed the royal title of Phraya Bhakdinorasresth by King Rama VI for his and his wife's generosity and public services. The title means the 'Beloved Millionaire.'
I'd say curiosity moves the world. It makes everything more interesting, fun, and worth exploring. I grew up eating all kinds of noodle, Hakka noodle or ก๋วยเตี๋ยวแคะ included. But then, what exactly is Hakka Noodle? The triangle tofu? The broth? Or the person who prepares it?
A too-long stretch in hometown spurred us to look further to something exotic and beyond. Case in point is these colourful Indian sweets - and their unique cultures and traditions that have been a part of Thailand for centuries.
