This was my second visit to this lovely, quaint organic bistro. I did a quick review of my first visit on Trip Advisor. I think it’s time for a more in-depth review.
This was a totally impromptu visit. I was in the neighborhood looking for something else not even related to food, and voila!…there it was. After the delicious meal I had there last year, how could I resist? The restaurant is not only organic, but vegetarian. For all you vegetarians roaming around Chiang Mai, this is a very good choice!
The restaurant is warm and inviting with friendly staff. They offer free WiFi, so you can entertain yourself while you wait for your food. Of course if you are dining with someone else this is a perfect opportunity to catch up! All food is prepared as ordered, so be prepared for a bit of a wait. Although, the day that I was there my food arrived quite quickly.
Now, of course what you’ve all been waiting for; THE FOOD…
Like most Thai restaurants, the menu here is rather large. Making a decision was not easy, and I have to admit my eyes were bigger than my stomach!
The gac and pineapple juice, listed on the chalk board menu, immediately piqued my interest. Gac is a fruit grown in SEA and Australian Apparently, it contains huge concentrations of beta-carotene and lycopene. Plus, it’s delicious on it’s own or mixed with pineapple.
Then, it was on to the appetizer. I chose the fried tempeh with tamarind sauce, and I was not disappointed. The sauce was tart with a hint of sweet, and the tempeh was nice and crispy.
For the main course, I could not resist the potato and tofu massaman curry with chapati. I was not disappointed. The curry was just sweet enough with being overpowering. The potato and tofu complemented each other nicely. The chapati was baked perfectly, crisp but not hard, and a perfect complement to the plate.
No desert to report 🙂
Loved the entire meal from start to finish. Staff seemed very limited, but the lady that was running around like crazy between the kitchen and the dining room never stopped smiling. Cost: 175baht ($5.30US/CDN)
