Nadimos Restaurant Review – Bangkok

Last month I went out on a daring adventure to Queen Sirikit & Lumpini Park, thenΒ met up with a friend for dinner at Nadimo’s on Silom Soi 19.

When we arrived, one of the staff spoke very good English and I was able to explain that I needed gluten free fare. He helpfully explained that many of meat dishes were gluten free – such as the kebabs and meatballs. But since I’ve been on a bit of a vegetarian kick, I abstained.IMG_3111

The salads and dips were lovely! The chef even cut up some extra carrot sticks (to substitute for the breads) and I binged on fried potatoes and feta. They’ve got a pretty good wine selection, however on this occasion it was their Mint & Lime smoothie that won me over πŸ™‚IMG_3110

Nadimos has 2 locations in Bangkok – Silom 19 and Sukhumvit 24. Both locations are easy to find and understand what’s needed in a gluten free diet. They also do delivery! Check them out!Β http://www.nadimos.com/

The World’s End Cafe Koh Phangan

This is my favourite restaurant, end of.

Lotte, the owner, is a Celiac as well and always has something scrummy cooking in the back. I love going to Koh Phangan because I know that I will eat well and get some things I don’t normally in Bangkok!

You can order pancakes, burgers, full English breakfasts, quiches and sandwiches – all gluten free!

Located in Chaloklum, The World’s End Cafe is open daily from 7:30 to 4pm. It’s worth the motorbike or taxi ride!

Not convinced? Read my first post about the place here!

Making Hummus

It suddenly occurred to me, why pay 300 baht for pre-made hummus, when I could make the stuff myself? Waitrose dried chick peas cost 129 per bag at Topps, and garlic is basically free here.

A perfect lunch!

Hmmm…..

It is best to soak your chickpeas over night. Use clean drinking water for this.

The chickpeas will absorb most of the water, so it’s best to use drinking water (not tap)

These are all the ingredients you need.

This tahini is from my local villa. But any other brand of tahini would be fine – there’s Healthy Mate and homemade ones at the Bangkok Farmer’s Market

Begin by cooking your chickpeas in some water. This will take about 10 minutes. Follow the instructions on the back of the package. Then, drain them and let them cool down.

Use your food processor to break down the chickpeas. Add the juice of half a lime, a tbsp of tahini, and a tbsp of olive oil. You may want to add a little more of each, depending on the taste and consistency.

Chop the garlic and parsley, then add to the food processor. Blend together until you get the consistency you want. You could also add some roasted peppers, paprika or chilies to add a bit of heat.

Voila!
