Bangkok-based Mint Pattarasaya is many things—professionally, she's a singer and a model who has worked with brands like Chanel and Bulgari. Personally, she's a music-loving, globetrotting arbiter of taste with an impressive vinyl collection, an enviable wardrobe and a restaurant checklist most gourmands could only dream of.
She spent a year in New York during the tail end of the pandemic, hanging out at high-end haunts like Per Se and La Noxe. This summer, Pattarasaya enjoyed eating and exploring her way through the best of Brussels, Barcelona and Berlin.
"I’m always on the go and I am never actually in my hometown," she says. "But nowhere else is like home for me, which is Bangkok, Thailand."
Currently home recording her third single, we caught up with the Bangkok beauty to find out where she likes to eat, drink and play in the Thai capital.
A collaboration between two Michelin star restaurants—Gaggan Anand and Sühring—and local streetwear label, Carnival, inside the famous Paragon department store. I usually order the matcha oat milk latte because they import the ceremonial matcha from Japan and I must say, if you drink this matcha you can’t go back to Starbucks matcha. The quality is just, wow!
Always my favourite. A franchise of Japanese coffee roasters, which I believe also has [an outlet] in Singapore.
HANDS AND HEART COFFEE
A small coffee shop in Sukhumvit, where they do filter coffee hand drips. The white space makes it so peaceful and relaxing.
