My husband and I finally checked out the Wat Mongkolratanaram (Buddhist Thai Temple) here in Tampa.
On Sunday’s the temple holds a Sunday Market, which includes a variety of Thai foods.
I would love to say we just discovered this “hidden gem” but we have known about it for months, just never remembered to go. The sad part of that statement is it has been around for longer than just a few months and somehow we missed it.
Not even kidding, it is about 5 minutes from our house. We are kind of shocked that we didn’t discover this sooner!!!
Apparently, this was the weekend to check it out since it was Easter. It was still busy but it is even busier on regular Sundays. Which if that is the case, I recommend going early!
I didn’t get any pictures of the market itself but oh the food!!! So much amazing food! I wanted to try everything!
I really wanted to soup but the line for that was VERY long. I was hungry and didn’t want to wait that long so I ended up getting a veggie egg roll and Tofu Pad Thai. Should have tried a dessert but there we were so full!! Next time!!!
After we got our food, we came out to sit along the river to enjoy the view and breeze.
It was close to impossible to get a seat at one of the many picnic tables. However, I have to say sitting on a bench overlooking the water was the best place to sit!
The building past the picnic tables is where all the food is.
It was also pretty impossible to get a picture of this without someone standing in front of it, so random guy, welcome to my blog :)
I was able to snap this close-up pic right before another couple came to take their picture next to it.
My husband looking sharp, as always!
To the left of the below picture is the food market and on the right is the picnic table area.
Happy Easter from the Arnold’s!
What better place to do yoga!! Granted, I couldn’t do my usual tree pose as I was wearing a short dress and I am not about flashing people!
If you are in Tampa, I highly recommend going here during the Sunday market!
