This was my first trip to Bangkok and it was a bit of a whistle stop tour on my way to visit my Grandparents in South Africa. Definitely not the quickest route there, but Bangkok was definitely worth the visit. One of my good friends Rachel lives in Bangkok and not only was an amazing host and tour guide, but she also took me to a couple of awesome places for lunch.
Where I stayed:
How long for:
Where did I eat:
- Broccoli Revolution
- Gourmet Supermarket
Veganerie is a vegan bakery/café based on a quiet side street in downtown Bangkok. There is loads to choose from on the menu and they’ve got lots of raw sweet treats happening too. For me though, it was straight to a Raw Pad Thai (when in Thailand!!) and sharing dishes with Rachel also meant I go to try their Super Quinoa Summer Bowl. Both dishes were soooo good and this place is definitely worth a visit.
A really gorgeous café, Broccoli Revolution didn’t disappoint. And no, there isn’t broccoli with everything (although I wouldn’t mind if it did), but their menu is a mix of veggie/vegan foods. Portions are huge and we over ordered just a tad, but couldn’t resist getting the Veggie Balls with a soy yoghurt dip to start, the Chilli Bowl and the Black Quinoa, Avocado and Cucumber Salad. An amazing mix of flavours and freshness to both plates and the leftovers, well we took those home. A definite recommend to visit. I also spied someone else eating the Broccoli Quinoa Charcoal Burger, which looked AMAZING…next time!
The Gourmet Supermarket based in the Emporium Quartier is worth a mention as it’s got quite a few health food goodies available. I tried their Coconut Kefir drink which is full of gut loving probiotics and they also have a huge range of fresh juices, some bliss balls and everything else you need in a supermarket.
Healthy eating aside, no trip to Bangkok is complete without visiting a sky bar or two and definitely worth checking out for a glass of bubbles at sunset are:

Have you visited any good healthy eateries in Bangkok recently?
