Vegan Restaurant Bangkok: where to eat now

9th November 2019

Vegan and vegetarian food near me in Bangkok, Thailand.

Bangkok is possibly the city I commuted through the most during my time in Asia. I love Bangkok. And I love how vegan Bangkok is – just search for the little red on yellow “jay” flag at the entrance of cafeteria-style Buddhist eateries. These are convenient and cheap and sometimes delicious, but their emphasis isn’t on health and great ingredients – most of the time you’ll find MSG-laden overcooked slop. What really started exciting me, as well as all the fantastic rooftop bars in Bangkok, is the sheer quantity of hip, health-minded and vegan friendly or even vegan-only eateries that offer a slightly more upscale dining experience and deliver an extensive and exciting range of cuisine putting forth quality organic ingredients and innovative cooking styles.

Sitting in stillness for just a few minutes each day can help cope with stress and anxiety, live a more balanced life and enhance relationships, both with oneself and with others. Meditation classes in a dedicated meditation center can be a good place to start if you’re finding the idea of meditating on your own for the first time a little daunting. I personally use Headspace and I love it. If you’ve already been initiated and are ready to try your first ever silent retreat, yaaaassssss!

What is Jamu? And a Jamu recipe

As you might have guessed from the number of blog posts that are already piled up here about Bali, I absolutely love it. A LOT. And for many reasons. The one I’ll be discussing today is Jamu, this traditional Indonesian medicinal drink that looks a bit like mango juice and that you might have seen popping up on several warung menus or in baskets on the head of the Jamu Gendong, these women roaming the streets selling their precious potions to the locals every morning. So what the hell is Jamu?

Ask any hardcore traveller what destination left a deep imprint into their heart, and India has got to be one of the most mentioned countries.
