BANGKOK FOOD HAUNTS

Planning a trip to Bangkok? ST Food has put together a guide on where to eat as you traipse across the Thai capital.

Food writer Yeoh Wee Teck's recommendations include Prelude Restaurant and Bar, helmed by Singapore chef Tan Cong Wen; and Blunos, a restaurant by British celebrity chef Martin Blunos that serves hearty comfort fare such as pulled lamb shoulder.

If you need some respite from the heat, head to Onedee for ice cream versions of various Thai desserts.

Cook king oyster mushrooms, also known as king trumpet or eryngii mushrooms, three ways with these recipes from Malaysian newspaper The Star.

Dip them in a light batter, fry them to a crisp and serve with a chilli mango sauce; cook them with salted egg yolk and chilli padi; or simply stir-fry the mushrooms and sprinkle with crispy garlic chips.
