New Food Delivery App
While the airline industry continues to be slammed by the pandemic, Malaysia-based AirAsia Group have introduced AirAsia Food, their take on a food delivery application (pictured above). Aimed at helping local vendors by taking a smaller commission than some of their competitors, the platform is currently oﬀering a plethora of promotions to celebrate their oﬃcial launch. This includes free delivery until the end of the month and between THB 80 and THB 100 oﬀ your orders for 30 days! The app is currently only available in select districts in Central Bangkok but the creators have plans to expand in the coming weeks. www.airasia.com/food/th/en
Fillets, one of the city’s favourite spots for upscale sushi, have introduced Fillets Go, a designated sushi truck that serves up a unique omakase on-the-go experience. Reserve your spot in advance and the truck will come to your residence or oﬃce helmed by two talented sushi chefs. Once parked, the truck transforms into a fully-operational sushi counter where the chefs will prepare your choices from their tempting menu. Currently, they’re oﬀering three sets: Premium (THB 2,500) which includes 11 plates and two Chef’s Choice sets of either nine (THB 1,900) or six bites (THB 1,500). Beyond these sets, you can also tuck into their curation of Japanese specialties like Donburi and Kamameshi bowls. Facebook: @ﬁlletsbangkok
New Transport Line
Last month saw the launch of the long-awaited SRT Red Line, which connects Bang Sue (via its new Grand Station), Rangsit in Pathum Thani, and the city’s Taling Chan district. With Bang Sue taking over Hua Lamphong as the city’s rail hub, commuters will be able to transfer to the MRT Blue Line for easy access to the rest of Bangkok’s electrical train lines. The Red Line also includes a much-needed connection to Don Mueang International Airport. Transport Minister Saksayam Chidchob has told the public that riding this new train will be free until the end of October, after which fares will start at THB 12 and go up to THB 42. www.railway.co.th
