Rang Mahal welcomes a new chef and a new weekend brunch
Rang Mahal Rooftop Indian Restaurant welcomes Chef Amit Kumar as the restaurant’s new Executive Chef.

The best new brunches to try this February
Uno Mas is still home to one of the city’s very best champagne brunches
Bangkok is home to many champagne brunches, but there is one that inarguably trumps almost all others. The renowned champagne brunch at Uno Mas is back, bringing a selection of Mediterranean favourites (and incredible seafood on ice) to its 54th floor venue atop Centara Grand at CentralWorld. The three-hour feast takes place from 11.30am to 2.30pm, during which diners can enjoy unlimited flutes of G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge Champagne, and tuck into four varieties of oyster, Snow Crab, Maine lobster, Tiger Prawn, Jamon Iberico, lobster sashimi, A5 Kobe beef sashimi, three types of caviar, and so much more. Lavish in every sense of the word, the brunch takes place on every first Sunday of the month, so it’s best you mark your calendar right now.
The next Champagne Brunch at Uno Mas will take place on 12 March 2023. It is priced at THB 4555++.

These include Heart of Burrata with Cured Pork Loin, Tuna Carpaccio, Fennel and Tuna Linguine, Grilled Tuna Fillet, and Grilled Rib-eye, to name a few.

Larder adds Japanese touches to their Polish brunch favourites
The fun never stops at Larder, as the home of artisanal bakery and delicatessen has launched yet another new menu. This time highlighting new brunch dishes, the very popular brunch spot has added a series of fun and quirky new items to its repertoire. These include poached egg with cured salmon and ikura (they’re calling it ‘Your EGGcellency,’ because of course), strawberry dumplings, and avocado with rye crackers and poached egg. Our top pick is definitely the CBST with beef tatakki and spinach, a flavourful Japanese-inspired combination that packs a real surprising punch. Generous portion sizes, ambitious flavours, and some really great coffee to suit. Pro tip? Pick up some charcuterie from the fridge up front before you head home, too.
