Aside from cheap shopping and shiok massages, another thing that keeps people coming back to Bangkok is their diverse food scene. The streets and malls here are packed with a smorgasbord of scrumptious eats and we easily find ourselves spoilt for choice every single time we come to this glutton’s paradise.
If you don’t know where to begin the feasting, we suggest that you start at Yaowarat, Bangkok’s Chinatown. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of food options here but fret not, we have created this short guide to help you narrow down your choices.
Fans of Taiwan’s famous fiery hot chicken brand, Devil Chicken, will be excited to know that they will finally be opening their first permanent outlet in Singapore. This is great news for those of you who didn’t manage to get your hands on some of their chicken at the Shilin Market event earlier this year.
The store will be opening at Century Square on the 4th of October 2019 and judging by the 4-hour queues at the Shilin Market event, be prepared for even longer queues here at their permanent store!
Polished, elegant and intimate, Kaunta is a new Japanese restaurant in Tanjong Pagar that aims to provide diners with an authentic and lavish dining experience that’ll leave a lasting, memorable impression.
The modern 20-seater Japanese restaurant is by the same team behind The Sushi Bar—the popular sushi joint that first started at Far East Plaza.
The Sushi Bar is a restaurant for casual dining on a daily basis, but Kaunta, on the other hand, is more upmarket and made for occasions. They pride themselves on using only the freshest and most premium produce from Japan available to create their gastronomic masterpieces.
Allow the skilled chefs to take you on a multi-sensory journey; each and every bite of their meticulously crafted creations will open your eyes to the world of food from their point of view
It is no secret that Bangkok’s Chinatown is a gluttons paradise that is home to rows of stalls that sell scrumptious local eats. It can be easy to be spoilt for choice here and if you just can’t decide on what to eat, we recommend that you give Nai Ek Roll Noodle a try.
Situated at the heart of Chinatown, Nai Ek Roll Noodle is a humble stall that specialises in —you guessed it — roll noodles, as well as some of the crispiest deep-fried pork we’ve ever tried.
The food here is so good that they’ve even earned themselves a place in the Michelin Guide.
Gluttons, it is time to prepare thy bellies for the biggest online food sale of the year!

When it comes to food, Bangkok is no short of variety and this food paradise is a glutton’s idea of heaven. Aside from all the sinfully good street food and scrumptious local delights, they also have a popping cafe scene which includes aesthetically pleasing cafes such as BOYY & Son.
Located conveniently at the recently renovated Gaysorn Village, BOYY & Son is a chic, stylish and incredibly Instagram-worthy spot to chill at after a hectic day of shopping. Many similar cafes that we have come across produce pretty subpar food but that isn’t the case here at BOYY & Son.
The hype for Korean food never seemed to die down after the K-wave hit our shores just a few years back. Even untill today, people’s love for Korean music, culture, and of course, food continues strong.
From the same team behind many popular Japanese & Korean dining concepts in Singapore such as Chir Chir, Sora Boru, Nipong Naepong and NY Night Market, Masizzim is a Korean casual restaurant hailing all the way from South Korea that specialises in hearty and wholesome stews. If you understand Korean, you’d also realise that their name itself is a wordplay on the words ‘masi’ (delicious) and ‘jjim’ (stew).
To add a little diversity to their menu, Masizzim has rolled out a brand new lunch set menu that will be available on weekdays from 11am to 2pm (excluding public holidays) at both their 313 Somerset and Westgate outlets. Diners can look forward to an exciting lineup which includes popular Korean dishes such as bibimbap, kimchi fried rice and bulgogi!
Prices start from a very wallet-friendly S$10.90++ and each lunch set entails a main, a bowl of seaweed soup as well as two pieces of Korean pancakes.
Aside from mala and salted egg, another thing that Singaporeans are unanimously addicted to is bubble tea. We don’t know why but these little starchy balls of happiness never fail to make any drink taste better and every time there is a new bubble tea store in town, we find ourselves gravitating towards it even if the queues are 2-hours long.
This time around, it isn’t a new bubble tea store that’s opening, it’s a bubble tea factory. That’s right, you read that right! For just two months starting from 19 October 2019 onwards, The Bubble Tea Factory will be welcoming bubble tea fanatics to enjoy an enthralling and immersive bubble tea journey that features larger-than-life cups of bubble tea and an infinite galaxy of pearls.
