Celebrating 100 Years of the Red Cross: Food Festival @ Lumphini Park (17. December 2023)

It seems that I’m lucky whenever I go to Bangkok, since there is always some kind of festival when I’m there. This time it was the “100 Years Red Cross” festival and it was the last day, which was celebrated with a lot of food stalls in the Lumphini park. It’s hard to say what […]

A lovely view of Wat Arun with varying service quality depending on the individual: Restaurant Rongros (17. December 2023)

Sometimes you have to be lucky! Since we had no clear plan on where we wanted to have lunch, we decided to check out the Guide Michelin app and found the Rongros right next to the Wat Pho and the Grand Palace, with a view of Wat Arun! So, we went there and asked if […]

A nice local experience with overly loud live music: Restaurant Charm Eatery and Bar Sathon (16. December 2023)

A nice local experience with overly loud live music: Restaurant Charm Eatery and Bar Sathon (16. December 2023)

The first night in Bangkok is always the one where you have to decide where to eat based on the way you feel – and I felt like having some proper local Thai dishes. And the fact that weren’t any foreigners in this restaurant (recommended to us by the W Bangkok) was definitely a good […]

A nice place to arrive and have a view of the city skyline: Wet Deck @ W Bangkok (16. December 2023)

A nice place to arrive and have a view of the city skyline: Wet Deck @ W Bangkok (16. December 2023)

When you arrive to the W Bangkok, then it is definitely the best idea to go to the Wet Deck and chill there (and enjoy your welcome drink). The “Juniper Blossom (Beefeater Gin, Lychee, Elderflower, Mint, Fresh Lime)” (usually 380 THB) is quite nice, but it felt a bit like the same as any other […]

One of the better club lounges I have experienced: Club Lounge @ THE PLAZA Seoul, Autograph Collection (15. December 2023)

One of the better club lounges I have experienced: Club Lounge @ THE PLAZA Seoul, Autograph Collection (15. December 2023)

The Club Lounge in The Plaza Seoul is definitely worth visiting. If you have a status within Marriott, which allows you to visit the lounge, you should take advantage of this. The selection of dishes is quite good and definitely better than in any average lounge, ranging from soup to naan bread … … to […]

A nice, but not entirely convincing lunch experience at No. 28 of The World’s 50 Best Asia: Restaurant Mingles (15. December 2023)

A nice, but not entirely convincing lunch experience at No. 28 of The World’s 50 Best Asia: Restaurant Mingles (15. December 2023)

Mingles is listed on The World’s 50 Best Asia restaurants, so I figured to try this as well. The “Signature Lunch” (280’000 KRW) comes in a bit cheaper than at the Mosu, but I suppose this is due to the fact that the Mingles has ‘just’ two stars instead of three. The lunch started with […]

A delicious experience at No. 15 of The World’s 50 Best Asia 2023: Restaurant Mosu (14. December 2023)

A delicious experience at No. 15 of The World’s 50 Best Asia 2023: Restaurant Mosu (14. December 2023)

Given the Mosu is on the 50 Best of the World Asia list, I had to give it a try. Frankly, the prices are definitely on the more expensive side of things with the “Tasting Menu” accounting for 370’000 KRW and the full “Wine Pairing” for 250’000 KRW. Hence, I was a bit skeptical if […]

Traditional North Korean dumplings served in South Korea: Restaurant Gaeseong Mandu Koong (Traditional Dumpling House) (14. December 2023)

Traditional North Korean dumplings served in South Korea: Restaurant Gaeseong Mandu Koong (Traditional Dumpling House) (14. December 2023)

Usually, I don’t really follow the advice of the tour guides from walking tours since it’s very often driven by price only, but this time, and due to the fact that the place is also listed as a Bib Gourmand place in the Guide Michelin app, I decided to give this place a try! Apparently, […]
