Batt Tempura offers a new tempura experience at its laid-back spot in Ekkamai. Chefs Chatphon Thavornvanit (also of Wild & Co) and Jakrachai Ruayrean are Dusit Thani College graduates who put their Japanese hotel-kitchen background to work at this hip American-style kiosk. 

The compact kitchen sits behind a floor-to-ceiling window and '80s-style neon sign where you can catch the chefs freshly whipping up batter, coating and frying up fluffy, crisp tempura to golden perfection.

The menu covers bites like ebi bao (shrimp tempura with pickles and hot sauce wrapped in a bao bun, B180), tempura basket (shrimp, fish and veggies, B220) and several rice bowls, including anago tendon (one saltwater eel and veggie tempura, B350) and dragon ball tendon (three shrimp, egg, pumpkin and asparagus tempura, B210). Dip them in the equally-yummy housemade dipping sauce and wash them down with some local beer (from B100).

With disposable plates and bowls, the place works well for grab and go but you’re also welcome to hang out in the front courtyard strewn with a few small tables, bean bags and Supreme paraphernalia.

Back in 2015 we were told La Fete was changing from a month-long festival to a yearly schedule of art events, but now the Alliance Francaise of Bangkok has announced a very La Fete-like packed schedule of shows, concerts and cultural activities set to run through mid-July. Here’s a closer look at what’s coming up in the next few weeks.

This month marks seven years since the bloody crackdown on protesters at Ratchaprasong intersection, as well as three years since the military took over political power in Thailand.
