You can definitely learn about one's tradition and culture through food. Case in point is the centuries-old Japanese haute cuisine of Kaiseki Ryori - the elaborate multi-course meal that reflects the Japanese super precise and neat, albeit subtly flavoured, cooking methodology. Yamazato at The Okura Prestige Bangkok is one of a handful (if not the only) Japanese restaurants in Bangkok that serve traditional Kaiseki Ryori in both lunch and...

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...
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. We stayed in their Deluxe Corner room and tried their unique and very delicious Japanese breakfast. :D
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.
1823 Tea Lounge by Ronnefeldt at Gaysorn - for the first time ever - is featuring purebred Thai teas on their special, limited-time menu. But, these four specially selected teas are far from ordinary, they are parts of the ancient tea trails that draw from southern China down to northern Thailand. Some leaves are picked from tea plants as old as 800 years old.
This sweet, cold noodle is a secret recipe of a family of Talad Noi - a residential cluster south of Yaowarat. And it happens to be vegan, hence a specialty exclusively available during the Chinese Vegan Festival. But now, the descendants are bringing back this comforting and cooling bowl to the visitors of the area. Yumm.
