Coco Salad

Yummy salad!

Sometimes it's nice just to have a simple salad for dinner, so off we went to Coco Salad, a relatively new salad joint at Meechok Plaza, Chiang Mai. I've heard lots of good things about this place, and in fact, I've been there before and enjoyed one of their Grilled Pork Salads - very delicious and tasty dressing, from what I remember.

Today, it's going to be a made to order salad. For the base salad, you can choose 8 ingredients from a variety of lettuce, and other components such as carrots, beetroot, pumpkin, almonds, etc. This will set you back 70 baht. Additional ingredients can be added at an extra charge. As you can see, the vegies are very fresh - lovely and crunchy.

There are also a variety of dressings to choose from. Being unable to decide, the friendly staff let us taste some of the dressings. I settled for the rather tasty Creamy balsamic dressing, I couldn't taste much of the balsamic vinegar though. I think they must have put a lot of salt - I'm still thirsty now (several hours later)!

For those who doesn't like vegetables, Coco Salad also has a variety of pasta and Thai dishes, so you can still come! : )

The verdict:
A good place if you love salads or need a vegie fix! Very clean restaurant, nice fresh vegies. May try a different dressing next time. My friend says the Japanese soy dressing is really good. Lovely friendly staff.

The Rating:
The food: 7/10
The ambience: 6/10
Value for money: 7/10
