New Brew Brand

Philtration has revealed a new sister brand called Dr. Phil that sells a line of tea blends and cold brew elixirs (pictured above). Each bottle has different health benefits spanning immunity boosting properties, calming the body down, and easing stress, thanks to an infusion of adaptogens and medicinal herbs. Currently, Dr. Phil sells three signature blends, including the Oolong till better, made from oolong, ginseng, and utai mohmee; Not so green tea, brewed using green tea, basil, lemon and roselle; and Rice to meet you, a classic Thai combination of rice tea, butterfly pea, pandan and bael. All bottles are priced at THB 90 per blend, with free delivery in Bangkok for orders of three or more. The brand will soon be introducing a line of booze-infused jams, so keep your eyes peeled!

New Restaurant

Monkey Pod can be described as a tapas bar serving flavourful Lao cuisine. Currently in their soft opening, the eatery is situated in Sukhumvit Soi 13 inside a century-old teak house. However, its biggest standout is the garden, which houses a towering monkey pod tree, around which diners can eat and drink al fresco on a breezy deck. Signature items from the menu include the Lao dog (THB 179) where two sai krua pork sausages are served in housemade mun-tou buns with tomato jeaw; the Flat Iron pla ra khao phad jeow bong (THB 189), a grilled steak fried rice with cured egg yolk and a Lao-style sauce; and Klong phai chilli chicken (THB 389) chilli marinated chicken with pickled onions and a Thai chimichurri. The restaurant also offers vegan dishes, punchy cocktails, and a long list of craft beers. Facebook: @Monkeypodbkk

Open every evening except Wednesdays, the intimate bar-cum-lounge specialises in natural wines, boasting labels from Australia, Italy, and everywhere in between. Run by veterans in Bangkok’s bar industry, the bar exudes the vibe of drinking in your artsy friend’s living room with walls lined with plenty of contemporary art. With no set wine list, guests are encouraged to talk to the bar staff for recommendations. To nibble while you sip, the bar also offers a menu of bites that change every few weeks, featuring dishes from star chefs around town like Dylan behind
