And this is how traveling changes you: I came to Bangkok hating Papaya Salad (because, you know, anything but salad, right? ). But after living here for close to three months, papaya salad is now one of my favorite dishes. The irony is real! I love the crunch, the tangy-sweet, and the spice ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Has your mind ever been changed by traveling somewhere new?
Issaya Siamese Club is adorable with an unpretentious hip vibe and has become our favorite restaurant in Bangkok! It was an honor to visit Ian Kittichai’s flagship restaurant. The food was provocative, flavorful, and engaging. A huge plus: it has an extensive vegetarian menu! This gorgeous little dish was the banana blossom and hearts of palm Can’t wait to go back and eat (and drink ) all the things!
Accidentally stumbled upon Chinatown in Bangkok last night walking to the MRT from the camera store! I finally found the Nikkor S 1.4 52mm for a steal, I’d been dreaming about getting this lens for a while now! It’s dreamy and cinematic, I can’t wait to play with it more Photographer friends: do you have a go to lens?
I can’t believe it’s been a month since we moved to Thailand! One of my favorite things about traveling is getting inspired by local flavors and ingredients to create new recipes. We’ve been eating my Easy Vegan Thai Peanut Rice Bowl allllllmost everyday because it’s so healthy so delicious and SO easy! If you want to make it too, the link is in my bio
Use to do this all the time
Savatikaaaa my friends
The misconception is that Bangkok is not a very dog-friendly city. But after doing some more research, I’m starting to think otherwise This morning we walked Daisy around K Village near Sukhumvit Soi 26. There was an cute outdoor area with little shops and restaurants - so we sat down to have some brunch! It was nice to eat lunch outside and have Daisy with us I ate this Giant Guay Teow Lord, which is a big noodle rolled with minced pork, bean sprout, and tofu served with black bean sauce. I also had some iced ginger juice which was so refreshing!
Although this Thai Tea Panna Cotta was dreamy and sensuous, the dish that stole the show at Supanniga Eating Room was the Pad Thai Pad Thai isn’t even one of my favorite dishes and this one blew me away! Check out my new blog post for a little restaurant review We’re slowly settling into our new life here in Bangkok, trying to establish a routine so that we can start exploring new eats in our new city I’m curious to hear from you! Do you like Pad Thai? Or do you prefer Thai curry?
Our first week in Bangkok has been a whirlwind! My hair has been permanently up in a bun (hellooooo humidity ♀️) and I’ve been sweating and eating nonstop. Maybe I should just rename my insta handle to @sweatingandeatinginbkk whaddayathink? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bangkok is DEFINITELY a foodie city, I think I’m in the right place with my food blog! We found our apartment on the 2nd day (thanks to the beautiful, amazing goddess of a human being @minnniemint), we struggled to find a taxi to fit all of our stuff but moved into our 3rd day, went apartment shopping the following day (which took 8hrs because bangkok traffic is INSANE), got Internet set up, SIM cards, trying to shake off jetlag...it’s been an eventful! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although we haven’t had the time yet to play tourist and explore, it’s been such an adventure figuring out how to live in a new city as an expat. My one piece of advice for anyone who’s about to embark on a similar life change? Have a sense of humor and fall in love with the journey!
Last night we had an interesting chat with a lady taxi driver. Find out more about her story, behind the amazinh tourism industry of Thailand are humans with their story worth sharing. Find out more on a blog I made about my life here in Thailand.
