Organic Thai eats

P’Book and I had a delicious lunch the other day in Bangkok at Anothai Restaurant, an organic, mostly vegetarian cafĂ© and bakery that’s been around for a few years (second entry on this page). I haven’t had food this good, original and fresh in a while. We had:

  • two tofu appetizers
  • organic salad greens with miso dressing
  • spaghetti with salted fish
  • green curry fried (brown) rice
  • lemonade with mint
  • peach and mint sorbet
  • pumpkin & orange cake with cream cheese topping
  • lemongrass and rose petal tea

I didn’t know that in 2002, Thailand had implemented a five-year masterplan to become a global production center for organic food. Here’s the situation now – growing, but still a long way to go.
