Bangkok Restaurants with Healthy Menus to Keep You Satisfied

While Thai cuisine is renowned around the world, it actually can be challenging within the country to find vegetarian restaurants or places that specialize in vegan cooking or using pure organic products. Fortunately, Bangkok has now remedied that, and there are now a good number of places that have sprung up, both on the high and low end of the spectrum, to satisfy health conscious diners. For meals featuring superfoods and quinoa, you can't go wrong at Absolute Fit Food or Brekkie, and if you want to create your own salads and wraps, Dressed Thailand is a top choice. If you don't mind shelling out for some truly outstanding food, you won't go wrong with spots like Bo.lan, where besides great food, the restaurant aims to leave no carbon footprint. Other top end spots using the best and freshest farmer to restaurant produce include the elegant Paste, and the charming Na Aroon, which serves only vegetarian and seafood meals in a gorgeous traditional old Thai home hidden away down a dead end lane. For excellent cheap organic and vegetarian food, head for Anotai or perhaps to a branch of the popular May Kaidee's, which has three Bangkok branches and also runs a cooking school. If you are really picky and demand only raw food, the Rasayana Retreat is a holistic health center that has a raw foods cafe that serves up a wide variety of organic raw food meals. Vegetarians and healthy eaters no longer need to fear dining out in Bangkok.
