Seems like ever since our Thai vegetarian food challenge began, I’ve been eating a lot of food – even though it’s all vegetarian!

Today however I took a break from eating so much and just hung out at the neighborhood street food restaurants around my place in Southern Bangkok.

Breakfast

Just a bowl of oats and peanuts – solid and filling.

Lunch

For lunch I ordered “tao hoo song kreung – mai sai neua.” A simple street food dish of tofu mixed with a few assorted veggies covering a plate of rice.

Price – 30 THB

Dinner

For dinner just had a plate of “som tam Thai – mai sai goong haeng (green papaya salad – no dried shrimp).” Unfortunately, the lady that made if forgot about my vegetarianism and I had to pick out the dried shrimp that she added.

One of the dishes that I eat almost everyday in Bangkok is “tom yum goong,” or sour spicy shrimp soup – I love the flavor. I ordered “tom yum pak ruam,” a sour spicy soup made with vegetable stock and filled with an abundance of vegetables.

Price – 30 THB, 40 THB

So that it for day 11! More vegetarian Thai food coming your way!
