J’ai passé 1 semaine à Chiang Mai en février 2018, et j’ai adoré cette ville pleine d’énergie, et paradis des digital nomads, ce n’est pas un mythe! Voici quelques-unes des adresses que j’ai testé et aime. Vegetarian-friendly, toujours (& en anglais).
ImmAim has mixed reviews online, some of them saying that food is rather bland. It’s a vegan restaurant, that also has a bakery serving vegan croissants and pastries that looked really good (I didn’t try them).
I tried the Fresh Spring Rolls and the Banana Blossom Salad. The Banana Blossom salad was very very good and of a good size (it would have been enough for a meal actually), served with a delicious coconut milk sauce and good flavors. The Fresh Spring Rolls were disappointing, they really lacked flavor, even with the good passion fruit sauce to dip them in.
Their fruit juices and shakes looked very good although I didn’t try them.
The space is very cosy and nice, with a terrace on the first floor and beautiful decoration. It is located in a very nice and quiet district where I loved walking around.
The staff was not super nice or helpful.
WiFi works well.
- PunPun organic
This vegetarian restaurant is located in the XXX temple, south of Nimman district. They serve mostly Thai food.
I had the banana blossom salad which was good but the portion was quite small.
They have an outdoor terrace where you can eat looking at the beautiful temple and surrounded by the life of monks.
- Coconut Shell
Very small restaurant in the Old Town, serving good Thai food.
Every dish can be made vegetarian with tofu instead of meat.
I had the traditional Kao Soi noodles, which were delicious and served in a nice coconut bowl. A great quality to price ratio, the Kao Soi was 50 bahts.
The space is nice but small. Mostly popular with foreigners.
The staff was not specifically nice but OK.
WiFi works well.
- Tikky’s Cafe
Very good Thai food, with a lot of vegetarian options.
I had the Panang style steamed rice with vegetables, tofu and mushrooms. Served with brown and white rice. It was truly delicious, spicy as a Panang curry but not too much. The portion was quite big and it’s definitely a great price to quantity to quality ratio, as the dish was only 60 bahts.
They have a great selection of fresh fruit juices and shakes, that I didn’t try but most customers were ordering some.
The space is very nice with comfortable chairs. The place is popular with tourists as there were lots of foreigners.
Staff is very nice and helpful and speaks English.
WiFI works well.
- Morning Glory
