If you eat a strict vegetarian or vegan diet, and you are in Bangkok, one place you should totally visit is Chamlong’s Asoke. This is a food court that is exclusive to vegetarian and vegan dishes.

After checking out the amazing displays of food in the glass stalls, I couldn’t help myself but to order up a feast!

I went with the vegetarian Pad Thai with tofu. Very standard Thai dish, but was actually quite tasty for a food court. Noodles were nice and soft and the flavoring was on point. The wedge of lime really helped enhanced the already well seasoned dish.

The vegetarian beef ball skewer, made of mushroom was my favorite. It had a very interesting bouncy texture which was full of juice. Some may even argue that it tastes better than actual beef balls.

The vegetarian pork skewer, made of bean curd was another interesting one. It had more of a meaty texture, and had more flavoring to it. Was a little to salty, but would be okay to eat with rice or vegetables.

The grilled mushroom skewer had a very similar texture to the vegetarian beef ball skewer. The nice bounce and sweet juiciness was incredible.

The tofu & mushroom soup was very light and bland. Didn’t seem like it had an overflow of seasoning in it, as the mushroom flavor was quite distinct.

The vegetarian BBQ pork on rice impressed me with it’s presentation. It actually looked very much like the actual BBQ pork dish at the Hong Kong style cafes. I was very surprised on how similar the texture of the tofu was compared to meat. It obviously cannot compare to the actual dish itself, but I thought they did a very good job imitating it.

The vegetarian spring rolls were delicious! Nice fresh little bite sized snacks, this little treat never disappoints me. The crunch from the vegetables and the chewiness from the wrap, gave it a really interesting texture.

All in all, I had a really good time and delicious meal at this food court.
Everything was super tasty and extremely cheap!

The restaurant is called Chamlong’s Asoke. Located very close to Chatuchak Weekend Market, and directly behind the IN Square shopping mall. There’s a small road to the right hand side of IN Square mall. Walk through that street and go towards your left, you will see a small gate, enter through the gate and you’re there.

    That green leaves in Thai called "Bai-Bua-Boke (ใบบัวบก)" and the common English name is Gotu Kola, Asiatic Pennywort, or Indian Pennywort (You need to google it). It is quite a nutritious vegetable, but the most well-known usage of this vegetable is to cure you of any physical bruise. There is a Thai joke about this veg as well that it can cure you of a heartbroken (emotional bruise) too. It used to be served as a type of drink by blended and squeezed for the juice. It's quite a greenery, which is difficult to drink, so they serve it with the ice and honey or syrup. But lately, they become a very well-known as a side vegetable dish for PadThai or all kind of 'Yum' (Thai salads).
