Over at Shangri-La Hotel, Shang Palace breaks new grounds in Bangkok’s buzzing brunch scene, with the unveil of a dim sum brunch. There’s more — the Saturday-only offer comes as an all-you-can buffet, a new endeavour for Shang Palace, which is reputed for great a la carte dishes. We also see the opening of two new speakeasy-esque bars, both of which offer some rare finds for the city — one has snagged the spot for Bangkok’s most extensive tequila list, while the other is offering some exciting, spontaneously fermented wines by the long-term sommelier of world-renowned Gaggan Anand.
