Situated conveniently in Pathum Wan, Tasty Healthy serves up wholesome food right in the heart of Bangkok. It’s crazy how they cook those fatty-looking dishes in a healthful way. Delectable and robust, all the dishes here are surprisingly low-calorie, too — take for example their tom-yum spaghetti with slices of smoked salmon (only 270 calories). Not only does this place serve up these healthy options, but it also offers a cool ambience with its urban-chic interiors.
Focusing on organic ingredients, Brekkie Organic Café caters a mouthwatering selection of good-for-you dishes such as linguini spirulina with a salmon steak, tangy lime and homegrown vegetables. If you’re a serious health-conscious foodie, you’ll find scrumptious superfoods like maca roots and fresh fruits blended with brown rice milk. Those who have a sweet tooth should also leave room for its wholewheat pancakes dressed in low-sugar chocolate.

Absolute is best known as a boutique fitness centre, but its café is no less spectacular.

Delicious and weight loss-friendly, the dishes are light enough so you won’t have to loosen the belt on your way out.
