Calling all adventurous, meat-free diners: This guide is for you. Thailand may be best known for its dreamy beaches and abundance of temples, but is also, of course, every food-lover’s dream for its inherent knack with spice and gorgeous nuanced flavors. And, happily enough, this does not exclude vegans and vegetarians! However, as with any foreign place, it is not always easy or immediately apparent what is truly vegetarian-friendly; there are phrases to know, things to look out for (hello, fish sauce!), and restaurants that should be on your short list. To simplify the process for you, here’s our guide to dining meat-free in the Land of Smiles.
*Note: Many dishes in Thai cuisine are made with fish sauce or in a broth with meat in it (primarily chicken)—it is an inescapable reality here.
