Lunch at MBK in Bangkok and the trip home

Posted by on Aug 29, 2013 in Travel | 0 comments

On my last day in Bangkok, I was planning on a quick lunch at a small vegetarian restaurant in Banglamphu. Instead, a friend of mine was heading to MBK, one of Bangkok’s megamalls, for some shopping before she headed to the airport.  I had heard good things about Big Papa, a vegetarian food stall located inside of MBK’s international food court, and so I decided to join her for lunch and check that out instead.

A Wondrous Evening in Bangkok

A Wondrous Evening in Bangkok

Wondrous may seem a bit hyperbolical, but it definitely describes the awesomeness that is a May Kaidee vegan cooking class! After eating at one of May Kaidee’s restaurants earlier in the week, a friend and I decided we had to have more and signed up for her “Singles and Lovers” class. We were lucky to have May Kaidee herself and one of her staff spend the entire evening with just the two of us.

More Delightful Bangkok Eats!

Last night I dined at Thamna Hometaurant on Samsen Road in Bangkok with a group of friends and colleagues.  It’s a fairly basic restaurant in a renovated house with high ceilings serving vegetarian and vegan Thai and western food. It’s open daily for lunch (11am – 3pm) and dinner (5pm – 9pm).  And wow – it was good! Really, really good.

Raw Cookie Dough Bites

When I’m not on the road, I make about 2 batches of almond milk a week and so I have no shortage of almond pulp lying around. I hate the idea of throwing it away.  Some people dehydrate it to make almond meal, but that’s a bit too fussy for me (the simple in the name of this blog is there for a reason!).  So usually I use it up by making bite-sized, raw, snacks.

Bangkok: Vegan Paradise

Bangkok: Vegan Paradise

I’ve been in meetings almost constantly since I arrived in Bangkok and most of my meals have been at my hotel.  However,  I have made it to two of the city’s many vegetarian and vegan restaurants.

On Saturday evening after a long day of meetings a group of us went to May Kaidee’s Vegetarian Restaurant on Samsen Road for dinner.  The small restaurant was packed when we arrived, but they managed to squeeze our group of five in.  The menu consisted of traditional Thai dishes and the selection was not huge, but it was exactly what I was hoping for.
