ห้องอาหารสกาล่า สยาม | Scala Chinese, Bangkok

Scala Restaurant Scala Movie Theatre, Siam Square Soi 1 Daily: 11.00 – 14.00, 17.00 – 21.00 T: 02-251-2863 We have recently been on a track of revisiting old tasty memories of Bangkok. Scala Restaurant at Siam Square is another place we always go when we feel like giving ourselves some retro tastes and feel. The entire place, after all, has been around for almost 50 years, and it is another of Bangkok’s legendary and perhaps...

Sunday Brunch, The Okura Prestige Bangkok | ซันเดย์บรันช์ ดิโอกุระ เพรสทีจ กรุงเทพฯ

If there’s such a thing as The Buffet Olympics, Bangkok as a city should easily be ranked in the very top and eminent league. After all, Bangkok dwellers are always overwhelmed with buffet choices. Mostly from hotels, but also from some well-respected stand-alones. For the hotels, a typical track would go like this: Monday to Friday, ample buffet lines – covering everything anyone would want to eat – salads, cold cuts, a...

The Fountain Market of Chantaburi | ตลาดน้ำพุ จันทบุรี

A town’s market is always a great place to start exploring local foods. In the case of Chantaburi, their main fresh market – ‘Talad Nam Pu’ – is the main draw. Named after a fountain erected as a roundabout in the middle of the entrance plaza, Talad Nam Pu is bursting with fresh produce, cooked food and Chantaburi’s famous ingredients twice a day: early morning from dawn or about 5am until about 9am and...

Chicken Mussamun Curry with Durian.

Durian Massaman at Chantorn Potchana in Chantaburi, Thailand

A durian by itself is already something. But in Chantaburi – as Thailand’s tropical fruit haven – they are ahead of the curb. Instead of just showcasing their abundance ‘king of fruits’ in fresh and preserved forms as much-expected, they make a good, salacious curry out of it. Chantorn Potchana ร้านจันทร โภชนา is a long-standing restaurant in Chantaburi town. This is a place where...

Road Trip to Mae Hong Son, Thailand | เที่ยวแม่ฮ่องสอน

Here’re my tentative headlines for this story when we first got back and I was still literally ‘fumed’ from the experience: ‘Beneath the Smoky Clouds in Mae Hong Son’ or ‘The Town of Three Fogs + One Man-Made’ or perhaps …’Summer’s Mist, And Some Fresh Smoke’ ….. The fact is, Mae Hong Son – one of the most beautiful and, may I say, mesmerising, towns in the...

Chocolate Making at Le Cordon Bleu Dusit Bangkok | เรียนทำช็อกโกแลตที่เลอ กอร์ดอง เบลอ ดุสิต

Decadent and indulging, chocolate is also a big mystery. First, the finished products of chocolates we normally lust for in chocolatiers look NOTHING like their origins. From boat-like chocolate pods to the sweet and luscious chocolate truffles, bonbons or chocolate cakes, we eaters usually have no idea about the lengthy journeys each chocolate had gone through before they ended up on the plate. This fact alone makes chocolate-making a pure...

Road Trip to Mae Sarieng, Mae Hong Son | เที่ยวแม่สะเรียง แม่ฮ่องสอน

After a couple of days in Chiang Mai, we drove west to Mae Sarieng – a large district almost southernmost of Mae Hong Son. We took the highway 108 – or the ‘Hod’ route (after a major district) as Chiang Mai people would call it – that winds through mountain ranges. These hills are apparently the reason why this 194-km passage takes over three hours to cover. However, we had plans to stop along the way because we didn’t want to...

Thailand Road Trip to Chiang Mai, Mae Sarieng, Mae Hong Son

Some people thought we had gone nuts when we said we were hitting north in the summer. And they had all the decent rights to say so. Usually, Chiang Mai and all other places up north of Thailand are good for cooler months from the end till early of each year. But since our work schedules sometimes didn’t accommodate peak-season traveling, we had to adapt as we go. This time, March allowed us to make some road trips, and the north, we just...
