Vegan and vegetarian food in Bangkok – Lumpini park and Hang Dong area
The Lumpini Park area has an extensive street food market, fresh and varied every single day. It’s very cheap to eat here since only a few tourists come over here, but hey… is this a vegans paradise?
Unfortunately, most of the street food has either meat of some sort of fish sauce. The vegetarian options are limited (well, not that limited!) to fruit stalls and waffles. This is no different form the rest of Thailand or Bangkok, since Thais are not vegetarians by nature.
If you’ve read my last post on how to avoid Khao San Rd and experience a different Bangkok, away from the tourist ghetto and dunk nights, then you might be leaning towards staying at Lumpini Park, which is extremely well connected by metro/subway and offers so much more!
This is a nice area, so you’ll find what you want near by or within a couple of metro stops. So what vegan and vegetarian food will I find in Bangkok – Lumpini area??

The Hang Dong avenue is a must.

WANT TO FIND A COOL HOSTEL IN BANGKOK AWAY FROM KHAO SAN?
5/3 Soi Ngam Duphli, Rama IV Road, Thung Maha Mek, Sathorn, Sathorn, 10120 Bangkok
I’ve stayed at the ETZZZ hostel for a whole week. It was really nice, clean, with great views over Bangkok’s skylight, a wonderful rooftop, free wiffi and computers and a very nice older crowd who are not there to go wild but to explore the city and the culture.
