Sunday Food Vendors at Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep

THAILAND 🇹🇭

COVID-19 UPDATE: Vendors are located in a covered area open to all sides. Tables for eating are very well-spaced, and masks are required in all spaces while not eating. As of this writing, the hours every Sunday are 10am to 3pm.

After closing down for most of 2020 and early 2021, the vendor and eating grounds have been expanded for reopening, adding quite a few stalls and an entire field of picnic tables and umbrellas for shade. The people that are in charge have been working hard during the pandemic and the whole area is very nice for a Sunday outing.

Such is the story of life for this future Thai temple, whose beginnings were in Whittier and have nothing to do with the famous temple of the same name in Chiang Mai. They bought this land in 1996 and have been running classes for children, meditation, and offering a place for Thais to come to pray and speak with monks. Renderings show the massive temple they have in the works to build someday.


The variety of foods available and pricing are about on par with that of Wat Thai of Los Angeles in North Hollywood, which is still temporarily closed as of this writing. The items can also be hit or miss just like at those weekend openings as well, but overall the visit is enjoyable and there is now a stage that will host live performances starting around noon each Sunday.

On the most recent weekend, over half of the patrons were Chinese, and the music even started with some songs in Mandarin to cater to their group. The line for pad thai was consistently long, as apparently that was the item they all wanted most. Here are some more scenes of the grounds and foods that were sampled last Sunday:
