We are big time foodies here at The Wild Guru. During our visit to the beautiful island of Koh Phangan, Thailand, we toured around the island and discovered some pretty awesome cafes/restaurants on the North West side of the island (Sri Thanu). This area is also a well-known mecca for yoga schools, healing and meditation centers, and retreats: the perfect combination for a lovely vacay in paradise.
Getting back to our favorite subject: FOOD! We are sharing with you a solid and concise list of our top 5 restaurants that you must check out while in Phangan that offer tasty and creative vegan food. (list is in order of amazingness)
