Chilli Banana Thai Street Food – Buddhist Monks Photos

14 Aug 2016

Chilli Banana Thai Street Food welcomed the young novice monks of Wat Phra Dhammakaya Manchester. Look at the wonderful photos thanks to Chelsea Shoesmith Photography

Aged between 6 and 11, the boys partake in this two week program to show respect and grow as a person in unison. It is seen as a ‘thank you’ to their mother for giving them life, amongst other things, such as gaining independence and showing respect for the Buddhism religion.

Nhuea (son of Stephen and Nok Blaney, owners of Chilli Banana) had his fill of wonderful Thai food and pizza from Mercato.

All of the boys wore orange robes, which are sacred in this religion.

Trips to the museum and the Peak District are lined up for the lads next which were all very excited about their upcoming events.

Recommendations are aplenty for this cause and it’s easy to see why.

Thank you to the amazing Chilli Banana for hosting it and providing excellent food (as ever!) with Mercato’s lovely pizzas!
