The best burgers in Bangkok

Food trends come and go. But burger always captures a place everyone's heart. Big, fat, juicy patty slapped in between soft warm buns is to-die-for mouthful. While fast food chains churn out industrial, sad-looking burgers to feed hungry crowds, a number of burger specialists in Bangkok take their burgers seriously and offer meaty marvels that are heavenly delicious. Here are the burgers that hold a special place in our hearts.

Blind taste test: Who has the best iced matcha latte in Bangkok?

Blind taste test: Who has the best iced matcha latte in Bangkok?

Many will agree (tea purists and the lactose-intolerant excluded) that matcha green tea is best drank as a latte, where the bitter taste of this intensely flavored tea blends perfectly with the rich creaminess of milk, leaving a sweet aftertaste on your palate. Many shops across Bangkok deliver pretty good matcha green tea lattes (iced, of course, as we live in a city where summer never ends), but we’re trying to figure out which one makes the best concoction—that sipper that has the perfect balance of sweet, bitter, aromatic and creamy. We put on our blindfolds, and sip our way through the iced matcha lattes of eight of the city’s most popular tea shops to find out which one deserves a spot in our hearts. Note: All drinks were purchased on the same day and around the same time for a blind test conducted by our staffers at the Time Out Bangkok office. This review is purely based on the staffers’ opinions, and was not, in any way or kind, sponsored.

As she had expected, the owner declined her offer, but suggested instead that she learn how to make it herself in an unnamed institution in Bergamo where the best recipes for this frozen treat come from. And that’s how the story of Grazia Gelato and Coffee began. As Grace explains, the difference between ice cream and gelato lies in the texture and richness of the mix. “Gelato incorporates less air so it comes with a silkier and more intense texture. Also, it contains almost 90 percent less fat because it has less amount of cream. And you can appreciate the actual taste of ingredients more in gelato.” Grace is proud of the gelato served at Grazia, which is tucked in an elegant townhouse in Bang Klaui that has been refurbished to look like a retro fashion studio, complete with arch details and vintage collectibles that Grace gathered whilst in Italy. For one, the gelato here is devoid of chemicals and emulsifiers, which are typically used as shortcuts at most ice cream parlors. But Grazia doesn’
