Official description

May Veggie Home might be a new face in Bangkok’s meat-free gastronomic circle, yet in the years since its 2012 launch the eatery has built a strong reputation among diners — local and international — as one of the city’s most popular spots for vegetarian fare.

The restaurant claims to be vegan, so it doesn’t use any animal products, including milk, eggs or honey.

Its menu is a homey hodgepodge of 60 comfort dishes from various cuisines, yet with the zesty Thai fare as its highlight. My two vegetarian friends and I checked out the 50-seat restaurant a week ago. Even on an idle Monday, the modest venue, lulled by contemporary bossa nova tunes, was half-packed.

The first dish to arrive was described in English as fried vegetarian “chicken” with cashew nuts in spicy and sour sauce (159 baht). Though prepared without any meat, it scrumptiously conveyed the flavourful pungency of larb, a traditional Thai entree made with minced meat, sawtooth coriander, lemongrass, shallots, mint, roasted rice and chillies.

The tasty dish, which went as nicely with rice as it was enjoyed as an appetiser, featured deep-fried, soy sauce-marinated cubes of imitation chicken, tossed with all the usual herbs and spices. The dish was lent a sweet crunch by roasted cashew nuts and sesame seeds, while fresh vegetable sticks, which were served on the side, helped give the spicy dish a bracing finish.
