Veganerie Concept – Delicious Vegan Restaurant In Central Bangkok Serving Faux Meat And More
[Bangkok] In Thailand, many abide by a vegan or vegetarian diet for religious reasons. This restaurant hopes that its food offerings can make it tastier and better for vegan diners.
Veganerie Concept is a family-run vegan eatery found in Bangkok.
Co-founder Kalayanee realized the benefits of being on a vegan diet, and saw her health significantly improved. Together with her daughter Jajah, they want to encourage diners to experience delicious vegan cuisine.

What makes this restaurant stand out from other vegan-friendly venues in the capital is its offering of unique meals featuring faux meat.
Many diners who were initially resistant to switching their diet, feared they would miss the taste of meat too much.
That is where Veganerie Concept comes in.
The restaurant serves up a plethora of tasty, meat-like menu items that may just convince even the most meat-loving of diners that going vegan is really not all that bad.
In addition to faux meat, the restaurant also offers plant-based vegan-friendly options and a selection of bakery items made without the use of any animal products.
Veganerie Concept’s interior reflects the restaurant’s vegetarian-friendly menu, with green foliage accents throughout.
The quaint restaurant is not that large, though there is plenty of seating with both indoor and outdoor tables and chairs available.
Wooden panels adorn the ceiling, giving the restaurant a rustic vibe. Hanging glass lamps with black, ironwork design hang above the tables, basking them in a romantic hew, as well.
The restaurant is not glamorous or glitzy, rather, comfortable and quite welcoming, and there is even a large, plush sectional sofa for diners to lounge on while they wait for their food.
The menu is broken up into a number of sections for diners to browse.
Appetisers, desserts, mains, quinoa bowls, Buddha bowls, curry dishes, wraps, paninis, smoothies, smoothies bowls, pancakes: the list goes on and on. The best way to enjoy Veganerie Concept’s menu is to purchase a few dishes and share amongst friends.
A recommended dish was the scarily convincing Hawaiian Teriyaki Veggie Burger (290 baht, SGD$11.97) – a vegan burger bun filled with crunchy teriyaki cauliflower, pineapple, tomato, lettuce, onion and topped with white sesame and soy mayonnaise.
Bacon-lovers should opt for the creamy pesto BLT panini wrap (220 baht, SGD$9.08).
This wrap used soy in its bacon and was arguably equally as enticing as its porky counterpart, and the added pesto sauce made from basil, garlic, olive oil, lime and pine nuts made this dish undoubtedly unique.
Visitors do not have to be vegetarian or vegan to enjoy the food. And the restaurant is equipped with plenty of seating for friends to come together for a lovely meal out on the town.
There are a total of five Veganerie instalments in the city, some of which are restaurants and some are bakeries.
The family has every intention of expanding in the future. More importantly, they want to prove that sticking to a vegan diet can be a delicious endeavour and not a hassle, as many presume it to be.
