As a confirmed carnivore, the idea of going to a vegetarian restaurant is as welcome as a garlic garlanded cross is to Count Dracula, thus I have been resisting Mrs T's suggestions that we visit this place. What a mistake!
Pun Pun is sited at the rear of the "Monk Chat" at the delightful Wat Suan Dok on Suthep Road. It is a very simple outdoor eatery which offers a range of freshly cooked vegetarian food, much of it grown (organically) on their small-holding outside the city, or bought from other, small organic producers. The surroundings are not salubrious - less rustic charm than seriously run down - but do not let that put you off. Hygiene is high on their agenda.
All meals are freshly cooked to order, from very fresh ingredients. Unlike so many restaurants, nothing comes from the "cash & carry", as will be obvious when you eat here. Freshly made fruit drinks - including a few "specials" - and free drinking water complete the menu. Sadly, there are no sweets, not even fresh fruit, a very minor downside. Main courses are no more than 50 Baht and many less than that.
Don't be put off by the word "vegetarian" - nobody loves meat more than me - nor by the initial impressions. It is well patronised by locals and tourists alike, so give it your support too.
