Pun Pun has been serving quality vegetarian food in Chiang Mai for seven years. It is the classic organic vegetarian table service restaurant, the first of its kind in Chiang Mai. The concept is farm to table with the produce coming from Pun Pun organic farm and other small organic farms known to the owner.
The food is consistently good with many stand out dishes: the beautiful and tasty flower salad, banana heart salad, wing bean salad, tofu and sesame plate. Yum. The prices are quite inexpensive considering the quality of the ingredients and the owners try to their meals affordable. The also offer special inexpensive meals for the monks who study at the Buddhist University located on the same grounds.
The restaurant is in the grounds of the Buddhist temple which is unique in itself. Diners should be respectful of this and not arrive in short shorts or revealing outfits.
In answer to some of the "cons": All meals can be served vegan, just tell them to hold the egg. The portions are Thai style.
And did you know that the first guest at this restaurant was the Venerable Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh?Pros: Truly organic tasty meals, Inspiring owners, Unique Atmosphere
