Food, drink and charity
This popular cafe and NGO works with Burmese refugees under the name Thai Freedom House.

They have moved location a few times due to cost and accessibility issues but now they have found a permanent spot just north of the moat opposite Ratpakinai Road.

The food was great, we shared a Burmese tea-leaf salad, a Laab Tofu and a Pumpkin and Ginger curry which were all delicious. I particularly liked the tea-leaf salad which I hadn't tried before and which was nutty and delicious.

I also treated myself to a hangover quenching Cocomocha - or iced coconut mocha coffee which was as good as it looks..

Thai Freedom House works to train and support Burmese refugees in language skills and arts and crafts. The situation of Burmese people who fled persecution in their own country is difficult in the North of Thailand because they often don't have the education required to gain decent work.
