Searching for Great Vegan Food in Koh Samui

I know Ive ‘gone on a bit’ about the veggie/vegan thing, but this is a huge thing to us folk who fit into this category… and it is an increasing market here, so it makes this vid stand out a bit, and should get some interest from vegans and veggies… so I reckon it’s worth pushing the point a bit 😉

Camilla Johannesen has done a super job of putting together this video showing some of her favourite eateries around the island… including some of the street food vendors and the markets. But there is one thing that makes Camilla’s video a bit special… and that is that she includes many places that offer vegetarian, Vegan, and even Gluten Free options on their menu.

Vegetarian and Vegan options are often missed out by many food-orientated vlogs, and the fact that meat and animal-based dishes of almost any kind (… crocodile for example) are the norm in Thailand and well covered by many vloggers can make Vegetarians and Vegans think that the options for them are pretty limited. In fact there are many restaurants and eateries that offer animal, and gluten, free options on their menu, and there are an increasing number of eateries that are totally veggie and vegan orientated.

The other good news is not just that these options are available, but that they live up to the reputation Thailand has for amazingly tasty and rather special dishes. Being Vegetarian or Vegan doesn’t mean having to accept ‘second-best’, or simply getting a ‘meat-based meal but having the meat left out’ as options anymore. These days there are some incredible veggie/vegan dishes available, and even a couple of top notch veggie/vegan shops supplying cheeses and other veggie and vegan specialities! So I applaud Camilla for her fully inclusive video.

The search for excellent vegan food continues.
