Best eggs benny I've had. I absolutely loved the slightly sour hollandaise sauce, which helped to counter the je-lat feeling that came with most eggs benny. Eggs were so perfectly poached- the yolk was gooey, not too runny. And the chorizo were slightly spicy, which I felt added a nice dimension to the eggs benny.

My picks are the sunny-side up eggs with bacon, ham, sausage & lap cheong, egg custard (kaya) bread, and butter & sugar bread. Overall I found the traditional food served at this 80-year-old coffee shop greasy, which made it a tad heavy for breakfast. I say go for the coffee since the watered-down milk tea was one of the worst I've had.

We came here for the coffee, but found the food far more impressive. We had flat whites, which were a little too strong. Not that it wasn't a good cuppa, just a bad flat white. The food on the other hand was stunning. Besides an extensive all-day breakfast menu which we ate from, Roast offers an amazing variety of pastas, meats and seafoods.

While queueing, saw the various chef cooking up a storm in a production line with factory like efficiency, with fiery charcoal fire. There's a faint scent of charcoal flavour. Could there be more charcoal smoky fragrance if they were cooked in smaller portions? Nevertheless we love the sauce and egg, we could come back here in our next trip.

Touted to be one of the best mango sticky rice in the country, Mae Varee's version came at a premium too. At 130 THB (approx $5 SGD), it came with one full mango and a pretty generous potion of sticky rice. We tried the version with 3 rice variants and I daresay the puloh hitam sticky rice was the most fragrant and my ultimate favourite.

It's very first outlet in Thailand opened in Siam Paragon a couple of days ago and people have started buying truckloads of it. A pity that these mini pieces of cheese tart heaven can only last for 6 hours outside without refrigeration, if not some of it will definitely accompany me back home. Both the Pablo Mini Original (75 THB) and Pablo Mini Uji Matcha (90 THB) are so good that you can't stop at one, my preference goes to the latter for the cheese and matcha combination.

In fact, the food was so good that I went there twice in 3 days.

Sometimes the simplest of things is the most difficult to master. Take for example, the Yam Kai Dao (200 THB) which is a Thai fried egg salad. It might seem like a simple home-cooked dish, but the flavours were simply astonishing, something that I have not tried before. The egg whites were crispy while the yolks remained runny in the middle. One single poke on the yolk and it will instantly flow out, a true benchmark of an excellent fried egg. The accompanying sauce was one of a salty tangy concoction of soy sauce and lime juice.

It was truly an impressive and fulfilling meal which I will definitely make it a point to revisit Soei whenever I am in Bangkok.

Taken here by my local Thai friends, Jeed-Jard is a cosy eatery at JJ Market that serves up quality Isan (Northeastern Thai) dishes. My picks include the deep-fried papaya salad, grilled pork neck, deep-fried chicken hip with spicy dipping sauce, and sticky rice. Only soft drinks are available at this place – but feel free to get Thai iced tea or coffee from across the street and bring it over to enjoy with your food.

Thank you, Pumpim and Fa, for the awesome lunch treat!

Jeed-Jard is located at Section 8, Soi 17/1, Chatuchak Weekend Market.

4 munchies: The perfectly poached eggs, moist crab cakes, creamy mushroom florentine, and house-smoked salmon had me going for the first meal of my day in Bangkok. It was luscious, savoury and definitely hearty. I only wished for a stronger saffron taste in the hollandaise, which also needed a few more drops of lemon juice for slightly more acidity.

What I love about Karmakamet is the concept of the secret world that takes you away from the Bangkok's bustling Sukhumvit Road. Set in a beautiful property with lush greenery and an outdoor garden, the interior was thoughtfully and tastefully designed with brick walls, dark wood furnishing, and tinted bottles of Karmakamet's essential oils displayed neatly on the racks in a linear fashion. The mix of eclectic background music also played a part in creating the mysterious, whimsical ambience.

Karmakamet Diner is no doubt one of the most beautiful restaurants I've been to. Known for its aromatic products, your multi-sensory experience begins the moment you set foot in the cafe – perfect for starting your day, chilling out in the afternoon, and romantic dates in the evening!

I was brought to this little store tucked in the back alleys of Chatuchak Market where my cousin called it the best Thai Boat Noodles! While we stood out amongst the locals that were slurping bowl after bowl of noodles, the thick beef broth with thin kway teow & handmade fish balls made us do likewise, if not for the other things that I was feeding myself with 😅 I've made a mental note of this store, if I can chance upon it again.
