Where to eat and what to check out in the month of June

New restaurants, apps, and bars, we have it all.

New Burger Joint

Madbuns Burger (pictured above) is the brainchild of Bye Wonchindawest who is behind restaurants like Kim Jeong Grill and The Deck, and Thomas Phochanasrichai, who runs Mod Kaew Wine Bar, so even if you think Bangkok has enough burger places already, you can be sure that this one will stand out. With a focus on small, quality burgers that are more affordable than the benchmark you can find at most burger outlets, their burgers are priced at THB 119 for a single burger and THB 249 for two burgers and a side of curly or waffle fries. Options include the Mad cheese burger that features two beef patties, mustard, pickles, cheese and onions; and the Mad chicken ranch with buttermilk fried chicken, coleslaw, pickles, and ranch; among others.

New Restaurant

Much-loved Mexican bowl chain Bowlito has just opened a bright and airy standalone restaurant in Sala Daeng called The Spotted Pig. With the aim to serve affordable Tex-Mex cuisine, diners can expect an array of American and Mexican-inspired appetisers, salads, soups, and mains on the menu that are best enjoyed with their vast selection of sides and punchy signature cocktails. In addition to their popular, customisable rice bowls (which I order for delivery more often than I’ll admit), burritos and tacos, the restaurant is also serving up juicy burgers, sizzling fajitas, saucy ribs, classic wings, loaded fries, sausages and more, so safe to say it’s a place to visit if you love meat.

New App

It is undeniable that the lockdowns were very hard-hitting for local food vendors, so much so that many are trying to fi nd their footing now. To offer support, the Digital Economy Promotion Agency (DEPA) in collaboration with Food Ordery Co., Ltd have launched a new digital food delivery platform called eatsHUB. The platform aims to improve accessibility to online food sale channels for small entrepreneurs, taking only 8-10 percent from vendors in comparison to larger delivery platforms. Moreover, vendors will also receive their cash transfers the next day. With plans to grow swiftly, the company will service Bangkok and 18 other provinces by July and expect to hit 500,000 users and over 20,000 vendors. The application is now available on both the Android and iOS operating systems.

New Bar

It seems like ever since its reopening, Khao San Road is becoming way cooler than it ever was. First, it was the launch of Korean-style bar Man-Se, which was followed by Mischa Cheap from the folks behind Dudesweet, and the opening of Tropical Galaxy, a neon lit night club that is now inviting some of the best DJs in the city for weekly gigs. Located below Tropical Galaxy is a new bar called Bar Darn, which takes inspiration from the feeling of being underwater. On the menu are ultra-creative cocktails like the Regency ikura (THB 290), which uses spherification techniques to transform brandy into spheres that look like fish roe; and the Deep dive (THB 290), made using brandy, coconut rum, squid ink, and lemon soda to resemble the deep parts of the ocean.
