Everyone knows that Thailand has plenty of delicious, vegan-friendly dishes in its cuisine. But if you’re visiting the country and want to enjoy a range of meals, you might be feeling daunted by all the choices and unsure where to start. Here’s a list of my favorite vegan-friendly cafes in Thailand, as well as some veggie dishes you can expect to find on their menus.
Bonita Cafe & Social Club, Bangkok
Since it has been operating for ten years in Bangkok, this family-run cafe has established itself as a favourite among both residents and visitors who are vegan. The menu features straightforward vegan fare including soups, salads, and sandwiches and has a health-conscious philosophy. For individuals seeking to mingle and connect with other vegans, the proprietors frequently hold events at the cafe.
Located just off of Phra Khanong Road, a popular thoroughfare, Bonita Cafe & Social Club is well-served by public transportation. It’s within walking distance of both BTS Phra Khanong station and MRT Asoke station, and there are also numerous Grab services available. For those who own cars, street parking is usually possible but can be difficult due to heavy traffic.
The Vegan Table, Phuket
Visit The Vegan Table in Phuket for vegan renditions of just about every food conceivable. Freshly squeezed juices, avocado toast, vegan pizza, and other items are among the selections. Our favourite treat is their vegan cheesecake. You can buy it by the slice or whole cake. Definitely worth a visit! If you’re looking for more options outside of Bangkok, check out Justine’s Organic Kitchen in Chiang Mai where you can get cold-pressed juice and smoothies along with hot drinks like chai latte and green tea. In Hua Hin, head to Buri Rasa Sala Restaurant where they serve fresh salads and vegetable curry that come with rice so you don’t have to worry about picking anything up from the market yourself.
Reform Kafe, Chiang Mai
When we’re craving traditional Thai cuisine, such the coconut curry soup with noodles known as khao soi, Reform is one of our go-to dining establishments. It is located in a cute small garden within the Green Tiger Guest House, a Chiang Mai guesthouse made entirely of plants. If you get hungry while touring the city, make sure you come by and enjoy their delicious vegan brunch. You’ll find dishes like an avocado toast and soy ginger tempeh burger on their menu which offer a variety of options for both vegans and vegetarians alike. For dessert, don’t forget to order the famous nutella banana crepe!
