Simple Thai-style vegetarian


Vegetarian buffet with lots of MSG

Cuisine: health foods, vegetarian
Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆
Price indication: not expensive; standard meal about 35 baht
Open: every day for lunch

Ming Kwan belongs to the group of Chinese / Thai vegetarians that offers a lot of cooked food, in buffet style. Unfortunately, it's definitely not one of my favourites for several reasons, the main reason being that they put a lot of MSG in the food.
A lot of (health conscious) foreigners come here and mistake the excess in taste for good cooking, whereas it simply derives from MSG, and it's not so healthy at all.
I tried again recently and I could hardly finish my plate, even after adding another bowl of rice.
The rice here, by the way, is not really brown rice, but just a mix of white and a little bit of brown rice.
You'll find dishes here that aim to resemble meat or fish, but in fact are made of tofu or some vegetarian surrogate, something which doesn't make sense at all for taste, but some people apparently need to be able to keep up with eating meatless. I'm not sure, but perhaps this place is even vegan.
Though located at a good spot, modest in style, and well-frequented by foreigners, I recommend to avoid this place and the food.

Dear Beloved. My name is Mrs.Vivian Salem, wife of late Salem Nasim in Iraq,six year ago, I lost my husband Nasim and three children - Husam, 15 years old , Wasim, 12 years old and Merna, 6years old, this happened when American tank shelled our car as the family attempted to flee heavy fighting in Baghdad View the Website below for detailed story of how i lost my family. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/ shared/spl/hi/middle_east/04/ vivians_story/html/1.stm Before my husband and children were killed, he deposited the sum of $10. million (Ten Million Dollars) in a bank. My Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to illness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this funds to a better still a God fearing individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want an individual that will use this fund for orphanages and humanity work. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not and I don't want my husbands hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I dont want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original- beneficiary of this fund. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. This must be kept confidential from eyes and ears of my husband's family. Hoping to hear from you. pls mail me on my email salemvivian82@yahoo.co.uk Thanks, Mrs.Vivian Salem
