Review ~ Patissez, Bangkok

Patissez is a restaurant originally from Canberra, Australia which opened it’s first Thailand branch just off Sukhumvit 39 a few months ago. Patissez is famous for its FreakShakes (a trademarked term I’ll have you know!) so I went with some friends to check it out. The decor is nice and the restaurant has a funky, airy…

Theo Mio Brunch

We have been to Theo Mio, British chef Theo Randall’s Italian restaurant in Bangkok at the Intercontinental Hotel, a couple of times for Brunch and when I found the pictures and realised I hadn’t shared I thought I should. Served from 11.30am – 2pm, it’s not your traditional Bangkok brunch in the sense that it…

Let’s Eat in Tonight.

We are making a real effort to eat in. I know that sounds weird but in Bangkok it’s actually cheaper to eat out and given the size and scope of our kitchen (which consits of a microwave oven and 2 hobs), way easier too. But in the spirit of healthier eating we have been exploring things we can…

Reunited BKK

This weekend my cousin, Singapore Cee, and her husband came to visit us here in Bangkok. I haven’t seen them since October when I was back in the UK for their wedding so was seriously excited about being reunited! Needless to say we had a crazy busy weekend filled with lots of eating and drinking……

Cooking with Poo

I have been dying to Cook with Poo so when I was trying to think of new things to do with our visiting UK friends it seemed like the ideal opportunity. Run from her home in the slums of Klong Toey in Bangkok, Khun Poo’s cooking school is popular with tourists and locals alike (Poo has even cooked with Jamie Oliver!)….

Review ~ Anantara Siam Brunch

Yesterday we did Sunday brunch, one of our favourite (pay day!) things to do with friends. We were trying the Anantara Siam for the first time. It used to be The Four Seasons Hotel and is frequently voted as the ‘Best Brunch in Bangkok’ apparently. We had heard great things, including rumours about a man…

Review ~ The Coffee Club, Ekkamai

Since moving into town The Coffee Club in nearby Ekkamai has become our second home. This lovely Australian cafe serves everything to see you through from breakfast to a late night snack opening from 6.30am – 10.30pm. There is a huge drinks menu including much more than just coffee! We do tend to come here…

Hot Star Chicken

Taiwanese chicken has been a big thing in Bangkok over the last few months, specifically the XL deep fried variety. Hot Star opened its first outlet in the basement food court in EmQuartier back in April serving ‘authentic’ large fried chicken the size of your face. Available in original or spicy, the queues for this…

Lets Eat, Singapore

We had some great meals in Singapore last week. Yes price wise it was very different to what we’re used to in Bangkok but we did find places to eat delicious food for reasonable prices. Here’s a rundown of the places we found that we would definitely visit again! Japanese ~ Clarke Quay The heavens had suddenly…

Sweet Treats

Thailand has a very sweet tooth. Which for someone like me is not a good thing especially where baked chocolatey goods are concerned. We were wandering round the new EmQuartier food market the other day when our eye was caught (…as usual) by the incredible counters of cakes and sweet treats. It would have been…

The New ‘hood.

On Friday evening we went to meet a friend in Phra Khanong, which will soon be our new neighbourhood, for drinks and dinner. Dave has been out there before but I haven’t so it was good to have a wander and visit some of the places that will probably become regular haunts! We went to…

Touching Base.

So life has been a bit hectic lately which has significantly hindered my blogging – no excuse I know! Apologies for the lack of posts and updates on life here in Bangkok. Here is a quick rundown of what’s been going on: New condo ~ Yay – we found a flat which we move into on the…
