Sühring – Bangkok, Thailand

Sühring. Not what you’d expect a restaurant located in bustling Bangkok to be called – but this isn’t your average Thai restaurant. It’s an unexpected taste of Germany in BKK, and possibly the first German tasting menu I’ve come across in my world travels. Sühring is part of the new wave of Bangkok restaurants championing foreign cuisines, and it should be on your list when… Read More

+ The W Hotel Bangkok Review

The W Hotel – Bangkok, Thailand

Ok, so the W is a brand we know (mostly) what to expect of – bright colours, reflective surfaces, interesting art, rooms named after superlatives. The W Bangkok doesn’t disappoint on any of those fronts. The colour du jour at W BKK is royal purple, and the theme is Muay-Thai-gone-clubbing. Think giant sequined boxing gloves adorning the beds (which read appropriately, ‘Lights’ and ‘Out’), fighting… Read More

+ Gaggan Emoji Menu 2017

Gaggan – The Emoji Menu Feb ’17

  Gaggan. He’s a superstar of the culinary world…a bit like Madonna and Britney, the first name is all you need. It’s my second time to Gaggan’s eponymous restaurant (read here for the first), and after hearing that his new menu consists of 25 emojis, it’s safe to say I’m pretty excited – not just because I’m fond of peppering my communications with said… Read More

+ Review of Gaggan Bangkok Asia's 50 Best Restaurants

Gaggan – Bangkok, Thailand

Why are the good ones so hard to write about? That’s what I find myself asking as I finally put fingers to keyboard to finish my review of Gaggan, one of the restaurants I visited while in Bangkok after #50BestTalksAsia. Is it because it’s so hard to find words that do the food justice? I think that’s a big part of it. I’m also realising… Read More

Nahm – Bangkok, Thailand

If you’re a foodie, you’ve probably heard of Nahm. Appearing on the World’s 50 Best restaurants as well as the Asia’s 50 Best, it was a must do for us on our trip to Bangkok. Sadly our booking didn’t seem to make it through the reservation system on the Como website, so we chanced our luck at getting a last minute on the night… Read More

Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin – Bangkok, Thailand

It was a bit of a toss up as to whether we were going to make Sra Bua a stop on our crowded Bangkok dining itinerary. Having made the Asia’s 50 Best list in 2014 but not appearing since, we took a leap of faith and booked in dinner as I’d read their specialty is molecular Thai – something I’d never seen done anywhere… Read More

Bo.Lan – Bangkok, Thailand

Bo.Lan – interesting name you might think, but it hails from a combination of the nicknames of the owners – it is the restaurant home of television chefs Duangporn ‘Bo’ Songvisava and Dylan ‘Lan’ Jones, an Aussie/Thai power team. I’ll admit it, we booked Bo.Lan as it was ranked No. 37 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2015. According to their Asia’s 50 Best dossier, the… Read More

Sky Bar – Bangkok, Thailand

Here’s one you might have seen before – if you’ve seen The Hangover 2 that is. You’re certainly reminded that this venue is film worthy, even before you’ve stepped into the lift to deliver you to this Bangkok famous rooftop bar (they proudly display pull up banners boasting their film set fame). That alone should send off warning bells… Arriving at the Iebua State… Read More

The Siam – Bangkok, Thailand

Nestled on the Chao Praya riverside away from the hustle and bustle of the Bangkok central shopping and business district, The Siam is the perfect way to enjoy Bangkok in five star style. Actually, it’s more like six. The Siam is a property that gently unfolds as you discover it’s beauty – it’s nooks and crannies, stunning garden spaces and amazing artifacts. It’s as… Read More
