This Sunday, Gabe and I ventured into unknown territory. I have heard wonderful things from other food bloggers about the Wat Mongkolratanaram, also known as Wat Tampa. I came in with knowledge that Wat Tampa is a Thai Buddhist Temple that offers a Sunday Market, every Sunday between 10:30am and 2:00pm outside of the Temple. The market has volunteers that serves you authentic Thai cuisine in exchange for donations.

Let me tell you, Wat Tampa is a Thai food lovers fantasy. Upon first pulling in at 11:30, we noticed the place was crowded. Not too bad, as I am now accustom to standing in long lines for Food Truck Rallies, but you did have to wait in line for about 10 minutes to get a dish. Upon instruction from other bloggers, I made my way over to the noodle station promptly. I ordered Beef Guiteow and Gabe got Pork Guiteow (Noodle soup). My photos of both dishes did not turn out as I had a very bad issue w/ shadows.

Do not go to Wat Tampa without checking out the Temple. Trust me when I say to go spend a beautiful Sunday day here. You will leave feeling a sense of Zen. If you have a pup, you can bring him/her along too!
