    Taking noodle up a notch

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 16/02/2018

    » The Setting: A kuay tiew experience doesn't have to mean a quick shophouse meal where all the tables have the flimsy pink papers for wiping everything and plastic jugs filled with tea that look like they have never been washed. If the idea of kuay tiew has become uneventful, Mamarin Noodles can spice it up for you (lame food pun intended). You see, the new kuay tiew restaurant highlights a Ban Beung (a district in Chon Buri) variation of the popular street food while taking it up a notch with the cosy ambience and, most importantly, quality ingredients.

    Concert peeps

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 16/02/2018

    » Concerts are awesome. Here at Guru, we have been to a fair amount of live shows of our favourite artists and bands, despite the ridiculously expensive tickets. And with every concert we attend, we see and meet the same kind of people. From the fans that seem to know the lyrics of every song to the ones who just can't seem to put their phones down as they record every moment of the show. We took the time to list our favourite (or for some, least favourite) types of concertgoers in Thailand. All in good fun.

    How Thai Chinese are you?

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 16/02/2018

    » As the editor (and the Thai-Chinese token of this magazine), I would like to celebrate Chinese New Year with a fun test to gauge how Thai-Chinese you are. I mean, according to Theraphan Luangthomkun's Language, Nation And Development In Southeast Asia, it was estimated that there are about 26 million Thais of full or partial Chinese descent. So, Happy Chinese New Year to about 40% of the Thai population, I guess.

    Just a couple of foodies

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 09/02/2018

    » It's that time of the year when couples come out in full-force, restaurants are jampacked, roses and chocolates are more expensive, and single people are more bitter than usual. Yes, St Valentine's Day is upon us and that means couples all over the place. We could have just given you a list of places you could go to for a special dinner (actually, we did -- check our Food listings). But in lieu of the upcoming "festivities", if you could call it that, we decided to round up a number of foodie power couples to get to know their favourite restos and what they do during on this romantic day. Perhaps we noobs could learn a thing or two from them.
