Every year, the 10-day Vegetarian Festival is highly celebrated as a way to give one’s body, soul, and mind a much-needed cleanse.
With the continuous growth in plant-based diets we have seen over the years, it is unsurprising how restaurants have now placed greater focus on giving their menus a healthier twist to align with the increase in health-conscious consumers. Here is a round-up of five Bangkok restaurants who offer delectable vegetarian and vegan options for your next dine-out during the Vegetarian Festival 2021.
First on the list is Thailand’s first urban farm and zero-waste restaurant, Haoma, which serves Neo-Indian cuisines using the finest sustainable and local ingredients. To celebrate this year’s Vegetarian Festival, gastronomes can opt for the restaurant’s new 10-course Plant-based Tasting Menu that took over three years of research and preparation.

Mia Bangkok has finally returned to welcome discerning guests back to its Instagrammable rooms for dine-in service. This time, the restaurant and bar is back with a unique 5-course “Kin Jay” Vegetarian & Vegan Tasting Menu for occasion of the Vegetarian Festival 2021. The menu selections include Butternut Tortellini, Grilled Eggplant, Sweet Potato Tempura, Apple and Dill Sorbet, and much more. The restaurant’s best-selling Vegan mocktail “Bee Sour” is also a real must-try, comprising of Yuzu, Homemade Plum Syrup, Apple Juice and Aquafaba as main ingredients.
Sava All Day Dining
We are tempted by this full line-up of 10 vegetarian dishes offered by Sava All Day Dining at The EmQuartier, from today until October 15, 2021. Meticulously sourced and cooked using the fresh ingredients, all the plant-based selections will not only satisfy your morality, but your tantalise your taste buds, too. The restaurant’s signature dish sees rice topped with stir-fried crispy Pork Lard with sprinkles of Salt and Chili, a traditional vegetarian dish that has been widely consumed by for decades. Diners can also choose various side dishes from a fair selection of starters like deep-fried Vegetable or Glass Noodle Spring Rolls. For pasta lovers, we recommend trying the stir-fried Vegan Salted Fish Spaghetti or stir-fried Eryngii Mushroom Spaghetti for a mouthful of intense flavours.

In case you did not expect the vegetarian festival to get fancy, the Vegan and Gluten-free Afternoon Tea set at Mandarin Oriental Bangkok will change your mind.
