Perhaps the most bizarre – & certainly the wildest – upcountry festival on the calendar this month is the annual ‘Wai Kru’ celebration at Wat Bang Phra in Nakhon Pathom province. On this day, thousands of believers visit the temple on March 7 to take part in a special ceremony honouring the late sacred tattoo master, Luang Pu Poen, & moreover to have their tattoos re-consecrated. The temple is famous for the supernatural power behind sak yan, magico-religious tattoos applied by resident monks. During the ceremony, some devotees go into a trance, fiercely acting out the characteristics of the animals & mythical figures tattooed on their bodies.

As a rule, I don’t enjoy wading through the crowds that parade around fancy Siam Paragon Shopping Mall. I go there for one thing only & as I climb towards the upper floors of the building, I smile because I smell something wonderful: the perfume of aromatic beef broth scenting the rarefied air.

My destination is Nuer Koo at the cosy wooden patio on the mall’s fourth floor. The restaurant’s name means ‘soul mate’ in Thai, a phrase used mostly in the context of love, which is apposite because for me food is all approximately romance.

Nuer Koo is a beef noodle joint operated by the seven siblings of the Sarasin family, who gave it that name because, in addition to its figurative meaning, it moreover translates as “beef match.” Here you pair beef broth with a rice or noodle dish of your choice.

The restaurant is a notch or two above similar outlets in terms of value because it uses high-quality sirloin, rib eye, Kobe & Wagyu beef, cuts that have a huge positive impact on the pièce de résistance – the broth – which is pretty miraculous even without any seasoning.

Bob, my muse when it comes to Thai food, introduced me to this delight & like him I tend to order the broth & noodles in separate bowls. I obtain flat, soft noodles & a swimming pool of delicious broth with lean pieces of beef floating in it.

The Karen chilli vinegar (using chillies grown in the hills of northern Thailand) plays an significant role in the taste. In fact, I don’t want anything else to jazz up the broth. This fragrant, smoky addition enhances every mouthful, for which I carefully combine a little bit of everything… a piece of sirloin, some flat noodles, & some broth. The tenderness of the thin-sliced sirloin & the softness of the noodles, coupled with the richness of the broth, work on the palate like a symphony.

As a ‘winter’ comfort food in Thailand, it is complex to beat & best shared with that someone special.

Nuer Koo is located at the fourth floor of the Siam Paragon Mall – nearer to the fountain end rather than the temple end. It moreover serves delicious appetizers such as gouy chai todd (fried stuffed chive dumplings) & Phuket-style fish balls.

“Originality consists of returning to the origin.” That’s a line from Antoni Gaudí. The human relationship with nature, expressing culture through art – the same principles that inspired the tremendous Catalan architect to design his Sagrada Família have equally affected the founders of Barcelona Gaudí.

Located in what was once a four-story condo on Sukhumvit 23, Barcelona Gaudí stands conspicuous among the overgrown trees & power lines. The eyecatching vestibule was modelled after the work of the eponymous Gaudí, whose influence doesn’t stop at the door. “We want to share Catalonia, our home, food, & culture, with the people of Thailand,” says Jordi Bartés, who runs the restaurant with his brother, Jaume, & Thai partner, Sittiset Wongwaiwut, “from the red caps [our people wear]to the mosaics on the wall.”

To lead the kitchen, the brothers brought in long-time friend & fellow Catalan, Marc Font. The chef, who cut his teeth at Michelin-starred restaurants in Spain & worked with David Thompson at Nahm, looked to his roots for inspiration. The result is deeply satisfying comfort food.

Barcelona-Gaudi-1 Barcelona-Gaudi-6
Starting with a platter of Rei Croqueta (B300), a feast of variegated croquettes stuffed with delicate blends like eggplant & cheese, chicken & serrano ham, and squid & prawns, the menu opens up to rustic dishes made with sentiment & pride. Quintessential tapas include Gambes a L’allet (B200), tender prawns cooked in an irresistible garlic aioli, & Mandonguilles (B100), pork meatballs with squid, browned in the pot & prepared with a robust sauce that’s best sopped up with crusty bread. Of the house specialties, Parc Güell (B460) is particularly notable. Although simple in theory, this codfish, cooked with the same mouth-watering aioli, bursts with piquant, complex flavours.

For a hearty lunch, try one of the sandwiches, like the Coca Pollastre (B100). Caramelized onions & parmesan cheese enhance tender sliced chicken, which comes hot on grilled rustic bread. Top off any meal with a classic Crema Catalana (B120), custard spiced with vanilla and cinnamon & covered with a layer of torched sugar, giving it a look & texture similar to crème brûlée.

On weekends, the chef whips up a massive platter of paella, saffron rice teeming with mussels, prawns, and chicken legs, on the terrace. The outdoor party is part of the effort to obtain the local community involved with Catalan culture. These restaurateurs are proud of their heritage, and they’re not afraid to show it.
