Brunch

Started off the day with a brunch at a small “Jay” Chinese vegetarian restaurant on Charoen Krung 74/2 (restaurant review to come). The food was the normal array of Jay food, but it was all freshly prepared and non-oily.

I ordered just a mixed dish; a plate of rice with 3 accompanying items.

Price: 35 THB

Hummus and Tahina at Ethos

Early Dinner

After having brunch at the Jay Chinese restaurant and walking around all day, I ended up near Khao San Road and decided to try out a popular Bangkok vegetarian restaurant called Ethos (restaurant review will publish this evening).

The food was delicious. I would highly recommend the hummus in particular, smooth with added spice for flavor.

Starting from the top:

  • Hummus and Tihina: 70 THB
  • Stir Fried Vegetables with Ginger: 80 THB
  • Brown Rice: 20 THB
  • Mushroom Pasta: 110 THB
  • Tempeh Burger (Indonesian soybean cake) with Salad: 120 THB

That completed Day 6 of the vegetarian Thai food challenge. Stay tuned for daily updates and restaurant reviews!
