The Vegan Food
Breakfast is served in the breezy open air restaurant and vegans are in for a real treat. There are western options of roasted tomatoes, beans, and hash browns with tropical fruit and cereals and soy milk. But the local food options are the most intriguing (and delicious).
We ate fresh spicy noodle salads made with rice noodles tossed in sour tamarind juice with a light soy sauce, chickpea flour, fresh coriander, dried chilli flakes and shallots. Crunchy pieces of deep fried rice flour and dried pea cracker add exquisite texture to this already addictive dish.
Also available was the turmeric stewed ‘si hta min’ or yellow sticky rice, served with crushed peanuts and salted crushed sesame seeds, it’s a tasty and comforting dish to eat and hard to pass up if you see it.
For a breakfast dessert treat there were a range of rice flour based sweets all made with coconut milk or beans and all delicious (also hard for some of us to pass by). Chewy rice flour pancakes, sweet beans in a rice flour donut, sticky rice… your sweet tooth will be indulged here for sure.
