Ice made their first voyage to Siam back in 1857, via ship, in big slabs contained by crates. To preserve the cool temperatures throughout their Singapore - Bangkok route, each slab of frozen water was painstakingly covered with layers of sawdust.

For almost a year since its debut of creative and delicious Thai-inspired Nordic Cuisine, Front Room at Waldorf Astoria Bangkok has just released its new seasonal menu.

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.
What's better than stumbling onto something as great as a real artisanal goodie. Case in point is this delicious deep-fried dough locally known as 'Pa-Tong-Go.' While many places depend on the quick recipe using baking powder, this one still relies fresh yeast made and taken care of overnight. The kneading and deep-frying techniques - passed along from father to son - also add to the extra crunchiness. Yummmmm!!!
