The Vegan Food
We knew that the culinary offerings at The Peninsula Bangkok would be of a very high standard, after all, it’s one of the leading hotels in the city with award winning restaurants and talented chefs. We also knew that it would be vegan friendly as they’ve recently partnered with the planet saving Green Monday initiative to increase the offering of plant based food to their discerning guests. What we didn’t know is that we would enjoy dish after dish of simply delicious and creative vegan cuisine during our stay.
Our day started with an al fresco breakfast on the riverside terrace, a pot of green tea and a banana smoothie from the smoothie and juice bar. This was the start of things to come, the smoothie was packed with goodness including banana, white dragon fruit, mint, almond milk and spirulina powder. Make sure to have one of the daily superfood shots from passing staff, our ‘Centella Asiatica and Spirulina Powder’ certainly hit the spot. Head inside and this is where things get seriously healthy. The central section of the buffet features amaranth pudding, almond yoghurt, chia pudding, chocolate coconut quinoa, soya milk quinoa and almond milk quinoa which can all be topped with an incredible array of superfood powders. Choose from spirulina, flax, wheatgrass, cocoa, protein, matcha, acai, maca, barley grass and turmeric then add goji berries, pomegranate, blueberries and a selection of nuts and seeds for possibly the most nutritious breakfast bowl you’ve ever created! The adacent salad bar is also full of plant based goodness including mini eggplant, long beans, asparagus and carrots ‘growing’ in their own garden, bababganoush and a trio of hummus. You want soba noodles with your salad? Choose from peanut soba, miso soba and citrus soy soba, each looking fresh and wonderful. Without doubt, this is one seriously healthiest breakfast and we loved it.
