Breakfast / Lunch

Ate at Chamlong’s Asoke vegetarian restaurant near Chatuchak weekend market. The food was delicious and there was an extensive selection to choose from (restaurant review coming soon).

Chamlong’s makes it real easy to order vegetarian food, you just point and order, everything is vegetarian and looks worthy of eating. Here’s what I picked by pointing:

Price – all dishes are 10 – 20 THB, all that food above cost 130 THB



This is a fruit called a Jambada.

It is normally only found in the South of Thailand, but I got extremely lucky to come across one near Victory Monument and scooped it up with little hesitation.

It’s kind of a cross between a durian and a jackfruit, making it one of the world’s best fruits. It tastes as though you are eating pure honey with a pungent tinge to it.

Riding the bus down Charoen Nakhon Road, I had noticed a vegetarian restaurant that was packed every night called Sutunthip Vegetarian Food (review coming soon).

It was more of a Chinese Thai vegetarian restaurant and as predicted, the food was on par with the amount of local customers.

Here’s what I ordered, clockwise from top-left:

I’ll get some restaurant reviews of these 2 fantastic places I ate at today soon.

I can honestly say that I’m still going strong on vegetarian Thai food after 9 days in, haven’t even craved meat yet!
