It’s Jay Time! Thailand’s Fave Vegan Venues Announced

BANGKOK — Mark down these places to grab brunch or plant-based snacks during the “Jay” Festival. 

Root the Future’s Plant Based Food Awards announced in its Tuesday press release the winners of the public’s favorite vegan dishes in Bangkok, Phuket, and Chiang Mai, billed as the first ever crowd-based vegan awards in the country. 

Voters were allowed to cast the ballots for their favorite vegan places, without any nominees. 

In Bangkok, Loving Hut Rama 3 won the Best Jay Food Seller and their khao soi won the Best Thai Dish category. The Vegan Table in Phuket swept not only the best plant-based restaurant on the island, but also the best burger and best Thai dish with their tempeh green curry. 

EzyGo Edamame Beans, sold in 7-Eleven, won the Best Convenience Store snack in both Phuket and Chiang Mai, which chose Goodsouls Kitchen as their favorite plant-based restaurant. 

Root the Future is a website founded by Briton Max Hellier and Aussie Joanna Broomfield that promotes plant-based living in Thailand.
