U.S. Pulses participated in Root The Future’s “Plant-Based and Sustainability Market” in Chiang Mai, Thailand on August 6-7, 2022. Below are the details of the restaurants that were part of our U.S. Pulses booth.

Saptha, Bangkok’s plant-based Southern Indian Kitchen, was founded in 2018 by Chef Giri. He only does delivery, private events, and occasionally sells at weekend markets around Bangkok. Aside from using pulses to serve Southern India food, he also uses seasonal and locally sourced vegetables and roots to introduce new flavors for Thais and expats. The dishes he created and sold for the Chiang Mai market were U.S. Yellow Split Pea Soup, Yogurt Bomb with U.S. Black Eye Peas (Panipuri), Rave on Roti with U.S. Chickpeas and Pinto Beans.
