Where to Find the Best Vegan Pad Krapow in Bangkok

“Vegan” and “healthy” don’t necessarily go together, but they do in the case of Vegetarian House Bangkok. The restaurant serves freshly prepared homemade vegetarian meals including power bowls, pastas, healthy Thai dishes and desserts. If you’re vegan for health reasons or don’t like plant-based meat, Vegetarian House Bangkok’s “Kra Prao Tofu & Mushrooms” is a must. To up the nutrient factor, you have the option of replacing the jasmine rice with a mix of organic quinoa, cauliflower rice, or organic rice mixed with quinoa and cauliflower.
