Day 24 Vegetarian Thai Food: MK Veggie Plate, Nam Prik Noom, Pumpkin
If you’re joining us for the first time, we’re attempting to eat vegetarian Thai food for the entire month of July 2011 in order to raise money for charity. Follow us for everyday blog updates and read more about the cause here.
Beginning to reach the final stages of the vegetarian challenge – one more week!
For breakfast I ate a quick bowl of oatmeal and peanuts before leaving the house.
Headed to MK Restaurant chain for lunch. I had the big mixed veggie platter with tofu. As a vegetarian, if you are looking for a nicer sit down restaurant and want to eat a healthy dosage of greens, check out MK (located at almost every mall in Bangkok).
This little Thai vegetarian street cart is set up on Sukhumvit Soi 101/1 and serves some awesome deep fried vegetarian snacks. We got a mixed bowl of por pia puak tod (taro spring rolls), por pia woon sen tod (glass noodle spring rolls), and tao hoo tod (deep fried tofu).
The sweet tangy peanut sauce went well with the deep fried crunch!
Dinner was takeaway from the market.
Pictured on top is nam prik noom, a chili sauce made from green chilies and a combination of other fragrant ingredients. Along with the chili sauce, I ate an assortment of steamed vegetables, a pile of rice, and pad fuktong sai kai (stir fried pumpkin with egg).
