Brunch at the Wat Mongkolratanaram Thai temple is one of Berkeley's not-so-well-kept secrets. Every Sunday morning, Thai temple, as it is commonly known, opens up its doors on Russell off of MLK to allow dozens of Berkeley residents to feast on their wide selection of Thai food. After exchanging a few dollars for some tokens, patrons make their way to six different lines serving vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, noodle soups, desserts, and beverages.

I have visited over a dozen times, trying every dish pictured above, and I can firmly say that they're all pretty solid examples of good Thai food. They also recently (recently as in several years ago; thanks for the correction, Kim!) started serving fried coconut milk desserts, which can really only be a good thing. Word to the wise, visit around noon before the food starts to run out and prepare to take home leftovers.
