When we think of Thai food, dishes like Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, and Green Curry immediately come to mind. So, imagine our surprise when we learned that there’s also such thing as Thai artisanal cheese.

To spread the word about Thai-produced cheese and support local businesses, VIVIN Grocery in Ekkamai is hosting a Cheese Buffet this Sunday 17th October 2021.

Here’s what you need to know.

VIVIN Grocery, a duplex bistro and grocer in Bangkok’s Ekkamai area, features local producers as well as creates their own products.

The buffet is priced at ฿890 (~USD27), and allows visitors to eat as much cheese as they’d like within a one hour and 45 minute time slot. A la carte dishes are not included in the price.

Visitors can either come between 11AM – 12.45PM or 1PM – 2.45PM and will need to book ahead with the restaurant.

This event on the 17th will be the first of monthly cheese buffets hosted by the restaurant.

All the cheeses served have been made with local raw, unpasturised milk.

The buffet will also include salad, charcuterie, cold cuts, house-made jams and sauces.

The only exceptions include: truffles, balsamic vinegar and olive oil that have been imported from Italy.


Cheese with a purpose


Just like we didn’t know Thailand had artisanal cheese producers, a majority of people are also unaware of the fact.

With their Cheese Buffet, the team behind VIVIN grocery aims to shine a spotlight on Thailand’s local cheesemakers, giving them a line of income as well as the chance to showcase their talents.

Plus, shopping and supporting local businesses can help minimise waste – creating a more sustainable future.

If the prospect of an all-you-can-eat cheese buffet that supports local businesses doesn’t excite you, then we don’t know what will.

It’s quite rare that Thai farmers from lesser-known areas would have their work showcased in gourmet markets, so we’re hopeful that this event help elevate their status.

We’re excited for the work that VIVIN Grocery is doing for the community.
