Where to Find the Best Vegan Desserts This Vegetarian Festival

The Vegetarian Festival 2022 will definitely not deprive you of your daily sweetness. Here are 6 places around Bangkok that offer gorgeous, delicious vegan desserts.

Those who participate in the Vegetarian Festival will know that the sweet treats are just as important as the savouries. The exclusion of butter, milk, and eggs poses a serious challenge for dessert makers during this time, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not doable. Here are the vegan dessert items you should try in Bangkok this season, on permanent or temporary menus, and for Vegetarian Festival participants or just curious passers-by.
