Jungle Noodle Love

I think I wanna know ya! Today I’m taking another look at a fairly new 100% vegan restaurant. Quite frankly, Thai Vegan is my greatest loooove of all. This place is magic. I discovered it by accident last December, introduced it to Ryan, and we eat there 2-3 times a month.

When it comes to the menu, I totally play favorites. If I’m at Thai Vegan, I’m getting the spicy eggplant with tofu every time. Delicious blend of Thai basil, tender eggplant, chewy tofu, and soul-shattering spice. I have to ask for a level 1 because level 5 will give me an asthma attack. Yowza!

Everything is so freaking fresh and filled with veggies. The flavor is always amazing, and the portions are legit. I’ve tried to make my way through the menu, but I am so in love with my favorites that I have to force myself to try something new. Another dish I love is the green curry with tofu. Loaded with basil, bamboo shoots, bell peppers, onions, and tofu, it is super filling and makes great leftovers. As for dessert, don’t miss out on the mango with sticky rice or the banana spring rolls! Another favorite is the Thai iced tea. Beware: it is super sweet. I love it, though.

Thai Vegan also has a great selection of appetizers. We really love the tofu satay. Also a big fan of the spring rolls. Additionally, the restaurant offers the following options for your protein of choice: tofu, soy chicken, soy fish, soy shrimp, or soy chicken nuggets. We always get the tofu because it is just ridiculously good. They even have unexpected things on the menu like falafel, burgers, and lentil loaf.

On my most recent trip, I tried out the jungle noodles with tofu. They were spicy, flavorful, and looked like a rainbow. Super delicious, and I definitely recommend it. I also tried the yellow curry with tofu for the first time. This would be perfect when the temperatures finally start dropping. Hearty potatoes,carrot, onions, and tofu in a thick yellow sauce. Super warming and also makes great leftovers.

If you aren’t hungry already, I dunno what to tell you. Thai Vegan is the place to be, so go give them your money. Head’s up: they’re closed on Tuesdays!
