Uncle Festers Rainbow Bean Salad

Uncle Festers Rainbow Bean Salad

So I asked a mate for the recipe for his bean salad, as I’m a fan and I have not been able to replicate it – he must be sitting on a secret. Here’s what he got back to me with: well it’s a little different everytime depending on what I have handy… Steamed green beans Sliced carrots (I usually throw the carrots in after a minute or two so they don’t get too soft) … Some diced pumpkin or squash or some dried lentils in the water under the steamer Then into a bowl with: Finely chopped onion Chopped…

Review – Heiroku Sushi

Review – Heiroku Sushi

A small boutique chain of ‘Sushi Train’ restaurants in Bangkok. (for locations visit their website). Great for a relaxing mid-week catch-up with friends. I always go for the salmon sashimi dipped in my custom soy/wasabi mix and a few plates of the teka maki – ok, so I’m a bit of a traditionalist. The wife is far more adventurous. The color of the plates determines their price. Anywhere from THB 46 up to THB 226. If the dish you want isn’t on the belt then just order from the menu and the chef will personally deliver it to your table….

Another one bites the dust.

Review – New Yorker Cafe

Review – New Yorker Cafe

New Yorker Cafe Make this hidden gem your last stop before jumping in a taxi and trying to get home before sunrise. It’s open 24 hours and is tucked away in the lobby of the Asok Suites (a stones throw from Exchange Tower) on Sukhumvit Road. Cold Singha beer served in frosted mugs and gourmet grub whipped up right in front of your eyes by chef Kay. It’s getting harder to find a good (read proper) Reuben Sandwich in Bangkok. The one here includes a generous lashing of Pastrimi, fresh Rye and top quality Sauerkraut. Don’t worry about the THB…

Top 5 Eats – Bangkok

Top 5 Eats – Bangkok

I recently had a friend ask “What are your top 5 restaurants in Bangkok”. I’m a big fan of ‘Top 5’s’ as you’ll if you’ve read the cheat sheet. But boy, when it comes to food in Thailand, and specifically Bangkok, that’s a tall order indeed. Think cuisine, budget and then location. Firstly, decide WHAT you want to eat. Bangkok caters to all tastes and budgets. From street food to 5 star and everything in between. This will largely dictate your budget. Lastly think about WHERE you want to eat. Somewhere local, not too far from home? Maybe you’re feeling…

Review – Banh Mi Bo Soi 33/1

Review – Banh Mi Bo Soi 33/1

One of my favorite spots for lunch when I am up that end of town. This small slice of Vietnam is run by Richie and Bo and they craft fresh supper yummy Banh Mi rolls daily which are a steal at THB 100. They have just released a ‘beef’ Banh Mi, to complement their already extensive offerings. Great coffee too! There is air-conditioned seating upstairs – they are located in Ellsie Boutique Mall, Sukhumvit Soi 33/1 near the Phrom Phong BTS station.
