BANGKOK — Had enough burgers and fries and want to go straight to the pickle? Ever want to enjoy some savory art or catch up on email with a pickle in one hand?

Then look no further than The Pickle Gallery, a cafe and co-working space with a selection of pickles on offer, which opens Tuesday just in time for International Pickle Day.

The opening party for the shop run by a Thai-Swedish couple starts at 3pm and includes a sampling of house-brand pickles and pickle-based cocktails. Prepare to pucker up, suck some pickles and make an appropriately sour face at works on display by Satit Raksasri, Hari Nayla and Gerard Gademann.

Swede owner Anders Svensson said he’s been making pickles since 2012 out of his Udom Suk condo.

“Friends loved them and every time I made a batch they would sell out in an hour just from posting on my personal FB page,” he wrote.

Svensson said that his creative-type friends inspired him to combine his love for pickles with their art.

Wanna pickle your own pickles? He says workshops will be held on how to make various types of pickles.

The Pickle Gallery is a short walk from BTS Bang Chak.
