Hello, lemongrass salad! 🍲 🍲 🍲 This is by far my favourite thing to eat in Bangkok, and as far as I know, you can only get it at ONE place. **Follow up from yesterday’s post** There’s a vegan grocery store / supermarket near Chatuchak market. Attached to the shop is a vegan food court, and this is where I got the lemongrass salad in the picture. 25 baht each and that’s only one of the many amaaaazing Thai dishes you can try here. 😋 😋 😋
Where’s here? You’ll need to type Chamlong’s Asoke Vegetarian Restaurant in Google Maps. The location is accurate, but if it’s your first time going, you may get confused. Directions: 🌟 Get off at MRT Kamphaeng Phet and take exit 1 **amended from yesterday's video where I said Exit 2** 🌟 Walk towards Kamphaeng Phet 2 Rd., so go around the corner. You can keep DD Mall as a reference (it has a big red-orange-ish façade, you can’t miss it) 🌟 Look for a Café Amazon and an organic shop at street level in DD Mall and turn left into the little alley after that 🌟 Walk straight down that alley until you see a shop selling woven baskets and other woven items. I KNOW it looks as if the road is going nowhere, but you’re on the right path 😉 🌟 Once at the woven basket shop, look left and you’ll see a fence and a gate leading you into a big 1-storey building 🌟 You’re there!
All in all, it takes 5 minutes to get there from the MRT. Some of the things you can find here (in addition to the food court) are: -Oils and sauces, including vegan fish sauce -Seeds and spices -Curry paste -Cereal sachets (to make cereal drinks) -Energy bars -Herbal teas -Rice & noodles -Thai snacks & sweet treats -Personal care products: face & hair mask, conditioner, cream, body lotion, scrubs, massage oil, loofahs, soaps, etc. -Household products: detergent, laundry soap, all-purpose cleaner -Traditional medicine products, including some Ayurvedic concoctions like Triphala (good for everyone’s guts) -Canvas bags. They don’t give you plastic carry bags, so if you forgot yours, you can buy a pretty big reusable bag for about 15 baht 🌟 I might post in advance next time I go there, in case you’re interested in tagging along.
