Ocken

For a duck waffle that couldn’t taste any more duck-y, go for this one at Ocken. Sandwiched between the golden-brown waffle is a fork-tender pulled duck confit, and if that isn’t already impressive, another dollop of whipped duck liver pâté is added on top for an extra oomph of ducky deliciousness.

Tuxedo Espresso Bar

Go to Tuxedo Espresso Bar for their 48-hour Cold Drip, but stay for their signature confection, the Tuxedo Marble Cake, which looks like its name suggests. The black-and-white dessert comprises of luscious marmalade and chocolate cream, hiding within its marble-like skin sweet and sour tangs. It is fit for those who do not like all too sugary treats.

Anantara Siam Bangkok

The Sunday Brunch at the Anantara Siam Bangkok features the city’s most famed street vendors listed on the Michelin Bib Gourmand’s list to host one of the live stations every week. Yet another thing we love about it is the Chocolate Piñata. Although the picture doesn’t seem to do great justice to its grandness, we love the goodies-stuffed chocolate dome, and how it’s being served with liquid nitrogen and a rain of different sweet sauces from the dessert trolley. Also, just like a real piñata, you have to crack it open to enjoy all the treats hidden inside, so that’s another highlight about this dessert.

Ms.Jigger

Unless you’re vegan or vegetarian, you can never go wrong with a juicy, fat-dripping piece of tomahawk ­– especially not at Ms.Jigger. Yes, their wide selection of concocted drinks are highly splendid but what is not to be missed is the good-old, classic yet never-disappointing Tomahawk Steak. Heavenly.

YORA

If you can’t get enough of all the stellar desserts over at 80/20, Pastry Chef Saki Hoshino now makes her goodies available in a form of preservative- and food-colouring-free ice cream under the name YORA. The Thai-meets-Japanese flavours represent the Japanese chef’s love for her homeland as well as her new home. The kind of food that tells the story of its maker.
