Where can i enjoy vegan food in Siem Reap?

Siem Reap has been our home since 2015 and during that time we have enjoyed a rapid growth in the vegan options available. We’ve done everything we can during this time to support this growth and advocate for veganism. Being Happy Cow ambassadors, sharing recipes with our friends, offering menu consultancy and staff training, publishing vegan friendly luxury hotel reviews, writing travel guides and even gently encouraging Angkor Market to stock vegan products (OMG haven’t they done well!) have all contributed to Siem Reap being a very vegan friendly location.

And then COVID.

We’re not going to write about how COVID has devastated tourism or the economic impact, we’re not even going to write about the roads, because we are pretty sure that if you’re reading this you are already well informed about COVID and the roads in Siem Reap. This short blog post is just to shout out to those who have continued despite the challenges to serve some mighty fine vegan food in Siem Reap. So, in no particular order, this is where to go in Temple Town when you’re looking for a plant based fix.

Cambodia Vegan Tour

We have been working with the award winning Vegan Travel Asia to create a series of immersive 14 day Cambodia Vegan Tours which launched in December 2022. Exploring the country and learning about the people, the traditions, the culture and the food that makes Cambodia such an enchanting destination. The itinerary for these small group tours will include spending time in Phnom Penh, Battambang, Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary and Siem Reap. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to join our Cambodia vegan tours!

The only Indian restaurant to have a dedicated vegan menu. This makes it our favourite which combined with friendly family owners, a delicious dosa and banging South Indian thali this is our ‘go to’ spot for Indian food.

New Leaf Eatery

Always one of our favourites and always vegan friendly. However, recently they’ve upped their game to new levels. If you haven’t tried their Beyond Burgers or their OmniMuffins you don’t know what you’re missing, and the veggie curry with OmniMeat balls (pictured) is one of our favourite dishes in town.

Banlle is where you will find one of the most talented and passionate Khmer chef in Siem Reap, creating delicious vegan dishes using organic vegetables from the surrounding garden wherever possible, the question isn’t do we visit here every week, the question is how many times do we visit…

Muffin Man

The vegan muffins are superb and from what we hear, the toasted sandwiches are pretty good too. But for us, it’s all about the muffins, our favourite is the blueberry muffin pictured below.

We Love HAVEN. They have our favourite dish in Temple Town which even after 6 years we can’t pronounce properly. It’s called ‘Zuri Gschnetzlets with Swiss Rosti’ and it’s amazing. Just this month they’ve launched a breakfast menu with plenty of vegan options too.

SPOONS has recently re openend and is still one of the coolest spots in town. Keep an eye on their social media as they are about to launch new breakfast and lunch menus which each feature a selection of vegan options.

You can see from the picture below that there wasn’t much left on our plate during the recent tasting!

Hey Bong

With each of the 100% vegan restaurants in Siem Reap closing during COVID we just had to mention these guys who are now the only vegan restaurant in town. We’ve not visited yet but will be heading there as soon as they are accepting dine in customers again as we don’t want our first experience to be delivery. The cumin tofu noodle bowl looks very good indeed as do the fresh juice blends.

The best vegan Thai cuisine we’ve had in Cambodia for sure. If you want friendly service and well priced, tasty vegan Thai curries this is where to head.

Warning. After years of eating at this local veggie restaurant in turns out that one of our favourite dishes that we were told didn’t contain egg actually does. When questioned about the mushroom skewers previously, we had always been told that they are vegan, but recently they said they contain egg but “it’s ok because the egg isn’t alive”. As in dried egg. No thank you. The tofu on hotplate (shown below) is tasty, but now we know it includes egg….

Gelato Lab

The original Siem Reap choice for sumptuous home made ice creams and sorbets. There are a number of vegan flavours to choose from including the most decadent chocolate ice cream you’ve ever tasted. Shame that the cones aren’t vegan but we still love this place.

Open In Siem Reap

At the time of writing (August, 2021) all of the above were #openinsiemreap but there are others that will hopefully re open soon. These include two of our absolute favourites (yes, HOK Noodle Bar and Banlle, we’re talking about you) but as you all know, the situation is challenging, and as yet they are not scheduled to re open. As always, Happy Cow is an excellent resource for finding the best vegan food wherever you may be. We do our best to keep this up to date in Siem Reap but please feel free to add reviews (good or bad) whenever you can. Here is the link to the vegan friendly restaurants in Siem Reap page on Happy Cow.

    We eat kosher.
    Do you know of a place where they bake bread… and anything else…. which is strictly vegan in an oven where only vegan products are baked.

      there is only one 100% vegan restaurant in Siem Reap currently and that is called Hey Bong. however, they do not bake their own bread but buy from either Bread Headz or Village Bakery. there both produce vegan bread products, but they are no producing it in an entirely vegan kitchen. i hope our answer helps you.
