The Overview

A nearly overwhelming variety of vegetables greets you at the opened third branch of the popular farm-to-table pioneer Pun Pun Center for Self Reliance. An organic farm and sustainable-living and -learning center supplies produce to this modest open-air eatery in the heart of town. The center also promotes seed saving, propagating local seeds to help indigenous vegetables thrive. The menu is mostly Thai with salads and pastas tossed in the mix. The yen ta fo is an absolute must-try for all soup noodle aficionados—thick rice noodles in a dark mushroom broth, topped with two-tone homemade tofu, morchella and enoki mushrooms, and purple seaweed, and finished with a fiery burst of beet sauce. Their signature dok mai salad is a veritable bouquet: chopped seasonal greens tossed with pomelo chunks, kidney beans, white pomegranate seeds and a deep-fried assortment of colorful flower petals.
