It seems that everyone on the planet loves Thai Food, and who can blame them!? Thai food expertly balances the most extreme contrasts of ingredients and flavours. Sweet and soul, hot and cold, spicy and refreshing, salty and bitter. Thai food is one of the most popular cuisines in the world and when prepared mindfully it can be a very healthy cuisine as well.

Here at Sansara we often incorporate Thai meals into the weekly menu for our flavour hungry guests. All the while keeping the dishes nourishing and energising. Our talented chef Shea put together this invigorating bowl and we can’t get enough of it here in Cambutal!

This dish is light and fresh, with a spicy edge. A perfect post-yoga meal that will keep you riding the yoga high.
