Vegan Restaurants in Phnom Penh
Updated June 2019
Vegan options? Vegan friendly? Vegan menu? We are currently blessed with choices with new plant based eating opportunities avallable at every turn. Phnom Penh is no exception, you can eat vegan cupcakes with your almond milk latte followed by Ethiopian vegan cuisine for lunch before heading for a vegan pizza or vegan hot dog with your vegan friendly craft beer. But what about vegan restaurants in Phnom Penh that are 100% vegan? Those establishments that go ‘above and beyond’ to ensure that we don’t have to worry when we order that the staff fully understand our request. There are currently 3 fully vegan restaurants in Phnom Penh and this short blog post tells you what they’re called and what you can expect when you visit. We’re not telling you our favourite, you will have to make your own mind up, we’re just telling you where to go and support these plant based pioneers!
The newest vegan restaurant in Phnom Penh is Bong Bonlai which serves a “fusion of Mediterranean and Asian flavours”. It’s unusual for us to add a listing if one of our team hasn’t ‘tried and tested’ what they have on offer but we sometimes make exceptions. We’ve heard good things about Bong Bonlai since they opened and we can’t wait to visit.
Opening Times: 7.30am-2.30pm every day and 5pm-8.30pm (closed Mondays)
Masala Dosa Street Kitchen
First up is Masala Dosa Street Kitchen which you will find close to the popular riverside area and the Royal Palace. The name tells you everything you need to know about this place, they serve dosas, in fact they serve lots of dosas as their menu has page after page of creative dosa options all of them 100% vegan and 100% delicious. There are other items too including vegan burgers and vegan omelettes with everything prepared with passion and plenty of spice.
Opening Times: 11am-3pm and 5.30pm-10pm every day, closed Monday
The word unique is often used incorrectly but when it comes to describing Sabay Vegilicious it was correct. There really has been no other restaurant in the world that was owned and managed by a family who previously served their customers dog meat and then realised that vegan and plant based food is what makes them happy. It is a shame that this incredible initiative only survived for a year, as the food was tasty and well priced whilst the owners and staff were super friendly too.
With another outlet in Siem Reap, Vibe have been at the forefront of the growing vegan scene in Cambodia since they first opened their doors in 2015. Their plant based cuisine is creative, healthy, vibrant and delicious and you can be sure to enjoy whatever you choose from their extensive menu. From vegan pancakes, bagels and Buddha Bowls for breakfast to tacos, burgers and raw zucchini pasta for dinner there’s something for everyone here.
Opening Times: 7.30am-9pm every day
