Pranom Thai Street Food Pop Up

A few weeks ago, I was flipping through Instagram and saw The Root Cafe was having a Thai food pop up!  It looked so good, but I couldn't get downtown for lunch.  To my delight, however, I saw the same pop-up signs last Sunday at the Bernice Garden Farmer's Market.  Pranom Thai Street Food is LA based, but they do pop ups all over the country.  You can follow them on instagram or facebook to see which place is next.

I wasn't even hungry when the smell of Thai food started wafting my way, but I knew I had to try some curry.  So, my friend Reva and I stopped off to order some food.  She got the Khao Ma Gai and I got the veggie curry.  They both looked amazing.

Reva had a little nibble on the way home, and she said hers was excellent.  I was so happy that they had a veggie option.  

My curry was full of veggies, Thai basil, and a super spicy green curry sauce.  I took a smell and packed it up to share with Josh at home.

To my surprise and delight, the curry was SUPER spicy.  Happily, I'm back in a place where I can eat spicy food again.  It was even a bit hot for Josh.  So, I threw in a huge pile of steamed kale to mellow it out a bit.  There was so much in a $10 serving that Josh and I both got a lunch out of it, and I took it to work the next day.  At work, I added some tofu and carrots to fill it out, and it was super tasty.

If you get a chance to try out Pranom, don't miss it!


  1. Oh fun! They came through Memphis last year, and I messaged the guy about veggie options. But then when I got to the pop-up, he couldn't do a veggie option for some reason. I can't remember why though. Anyway, it was at an event with lots of other food trucks, so I think I ended up with vegan tacos or something.

    1. Aw, that's a bummer that he didn't have veggie stuff that day. It was super tasty, but I'm sure vegan tacos were awesome too :)

  2. That looks delicious! I love green curry. I'm happy you can tolerate spicy again! It's funny, I always think of spicier foods when I think of your blog. Sliced jalapenos and various hot sauces and such!

    1. I do definitely like it hot! It was pretty heart breaking to be away from spicy food for months.


I'd love to hear from you!
