Polar Remy

Cheesecake is not new but the new shape and look at Polar Remy really gives the classic treat a new stellar makeover. The cheese-shaped cheesecakes by Polar Remy boast a warm yellow hue and luscious texture, cut with strawberry chunks hidden on the inside. With its instagrammable look, there’s no surprise it has become a sensation on social media at the moment.

Enoteca Bangkok

Risotto is always a good excuse to have rice and cheese all at the same time. But if you’re tired of the OG version, Enoteca‘s Risotto Zafferano (THB 750) is laden with lusciousness from cheese and foie gras. The 30-year aged balsamic vinegar dotted on top also adds a splash of acidity, contrasting to the fattiness.

COAL Bistro

Black Angus is good charred and grilled to medium-rare perfection. But what makes it even more scrumptious here at COAL Bistro is the herb-speckled butter and foie gras atop the brown-blistered piece of steak. A must-try.

Monster Hunter Cuisine

Croissants are good plain but marvellous when punctuated with a big dollop of caviar, uni, and black truffle. The private dining service Monster Hunter Cuisine churns out a selection of mouth-walloping dishes as part of their ever-changing menu served in the comfort of your home. Apart from their famed Beef Wellington, we simply just can’t get enough of the look of this butter-packed croissant (THB 1,100).

iceDEA

For those who enjoy corn on the stick basted with butter and cheese, you can now find the dessert version here at iceDEA. The brand is all about innovative ice cream ­– think durian-shaped ice cream and lego ice cream that looks exactly like legos. This corn one comes in sweet corn flavour, stuffed with grilled cheese and charcoal crumble. Doesn’t that just sound delightful already?

Thai Dessert Can Moddii

If you’re having the same struggle as us – finding it hard to get the traditional Thai desserts these days – Thai Desser Can Moddii has a solution. You can now get your hands on canned Thai treats like Thong Yip, Thong Yod, and more. The best part? They have longer shelf life so you can always have them on hand whenever something sweet is needed.
