Vegetarian Thai Food: A Guide to Eating Healthy (and Delicious) Thai Food!

Hey everyone, this is Mark Wiens with Eating
Thai Food dot com. Today I’m at one of the ultimate vegetarian food courts in Bangkok,
it’s called Baan Suan Pai, also known as Banana Family Park. Of course, if you’re vegetarian
or vegan you’re going to absolutely love this place, but the food is so good here, you’ll
want to eat here even if you’re a carnivore. To get to Baan Suan Pai take the BTS to Ari
station, take exit number one and go down the stairs to your left, walk along Phahon
Yothin road for about one hundred meters until you reach a sign that says welcome to banana
family park. Turn right into the small cafe alley way, walk all the way to the back past
a few coffee shops and a few stores until you can smell the delicious vegetarian food. It’s like a food court style, so you order
your food here and then you go sit at a table. As you can see, I went a little crazy, but
the food all looked so good that you can easily accumulate a bunch of different things. I’m
going to go through the food right now and show you exactly what I ordered. I got a dish, it’s a curry made with pumpkin. Bitterness is an excellent flavor but it does
take a little getting used to. Ohh, I love that. This is called puak tod, and this is taro
ground up and then it’s fried on the outside into a loaf. Add some of this sauce. Got a quick dish here called kuay teow lui
suan, it’s like a noodle wrapper filled with lettuce, some herbs, I think there’s some
tofu and mushrooms in that. It’s very fresh, the sweet and sour and spicy sauce is fantastic. This is probably my favorite thing at this
whole restaurant, these beautiful skewers of steak. No they’re not steak actually, they
are mushrooms. I just wanted to mention the vegetarian Thai
food guide. It’s an eighty page ebook stuffed with useful information and tips about how
you can order and eat tastiest vegetarian and vegan food that Thailand has to offer. If you’re vegetarian, if you’re vegan, or
even if you just want to start eating healthy delicious Thai food, make sure you get your
own copy of the vegetarian Thai food guide, so you can take advantage of this awesome
food, it’s just incredible. Anyways, as you can see, I still have a bunch
of food left on the table, I’m about to dig in and finish it all. I finished off all of the food except for
this last bite which is the last remaining piece of het hom ping, the absolute sirloin
kobe beef of all mushrooms and it’s fully vegetarian. It just melts in your mouth, it’s
juicy, it’s tender, that will put a smile on your face any day. Thanks for watching this video, when you’re
in Thailand make sure you eat and sample all kinds of delicious Thai vegetarian food and
don’t forget to check out the vegetarian Thai food guide!

    @happymama26 Haha, thanks! Actually, I'm working on a video of sticky rice and mango right now, hopefully I'll upload it soon! Thanks again for watching.

  2. Mark Wiens Posted on April 3, 2012 at 8:20 am

    Cool, thanks so much for watching. Just start making videos, writing and taking photos of food!

  3. Mark Wiens Posted on April 21, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    No problem, glad you enjoyed it!

  4. Mark Wiens Posted on April 23, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    Very good, have you been here before?

  5. munidino Posted on April 23, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Dude, though I'm a lifelong vegetarian I still really like all your videos. Even when you eat bugs, slugs and stinky, horrid stuff you describe it so well that it sounds appealing but I wouldn't eat most of it. Obviously you being a liberal omnivore gets you lots more views but I think vegetarian suits you and one day that's what you'll only eat. Only time will tell.

  6. chiyerano Posted on April 23, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    No, I wish I had though.

  7. joshthe8th Posted on April 24, 2012 at 5:57 pm

  8. Mark Wiens Posted on April 25, 2012 at 10:36 am

    Haha, thanks for watching and for the message! I do enjoy eating just about everything, and though I do love every form and kind of vegetable and fruit, I also enjoy meat as well. But yes, eating a diet high in vegetables and fruits is something I love!

  9. Mark Wiens Posted on April 25, 2012 at 10:36 am

    Well, I love to eat!

  10. farang siam Posted on June 8, 2012 at 8:21 am

  11. Mark Wiens Posted on June 19, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    Thank you for watching! I do enjoy eat that's for sure, but also I eat lots of fruit and vegetables and try exercise when I have time. Thanks again for your support.

  12. Mark Wiens Posted on June 19, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    I've written some articles of vegetarian food in Bangkok and done quite a few restaurant reviews (eatingthaifood[dot]com). I really like "Baan Suan Pai (restaurant in this video)" and "Chamlong's Asoke."

  13. Narissa Pookkasorn Posted on September 9, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    Watching your video make me miss bangkok dearly!! Last time I visit home was in 2007, through I plan to go back again next year. I'm sure Soi Ari has changed a lot.. I used to live there and I love how many delicious food it offers.

  14. Mark Wiens Posted on September 10, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    Hello Narissa,
    Yes, it would be interesting to see how Ari has changed since you lived there – probably a lot! Where do you live now? I hope you can come back again for a visit soon!

  15. Narissa Pookkasorn Posted on September 10, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    Thanks! I wish I can too. I live in the states now- a small town in Massachusetts where there is not much variety of foods 🙁 However, I like visiting my friend in Cali whenever I can. I love the food there- it tastes like home. So many type of food.. Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, and of course Thai. Where do you live before you came to Thailand?

  16. Mark Wiens Posted on September 11, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    I lived in Arizona and Hawaii, but I also have lots of family in California and like you mentioned – lots of good food!

  17. Mark Wiens Posted on November 16, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    Hey Betty. Yes, 1 other friend was with me!

  18. Culture Smulture Posted on November 29, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Firstly great videos. Secondly, a very important question buddy. How do you stay so slim!?

  19. Mark Wiens Posted on December 1, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    Hey Adam, thank you very much. Hah! I eat a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables and don't touch any packaged or processed food – and I sometimes I try to exercise!

  20. Mark Wiens Posted on December 25, 2012 at 2:28 pm

    You're welcome, glad you found and enjoyed this place!

  21. Vien Sengthong Posted on December 26, 2012 at 5:51 am

    I'm going to start making some YouTube video about my fishing trip for fun! What kind of camera are you using! It so clear!and are you using a PC or MAC?

  22. Mark Wiens Posted on December 26, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    Glad to hear that! I'm using a Canon DSLR 550d with a 55-135mm lens. And now I have an external Rode Video Mic for sound (but I wasn't using that for this video, but I'd recommend it). I'm using a Mac.

  23. Tre Asa Posted on June 25, 2013 at 7:51 am

    for me to die for Puak Tod. Haha

  24. Aftab Babar family channel Posted on July 16, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    mark, you inspired me to travel to south east asia and try the delicious dishes the land has to offer. I thought of you when I indulged in some delicious food in various parts of Kuala lumpur. Now I am thinking of traveling to thailand. thanks for the videos. I am a fan of your channel.

  25. limseebee Posted on August 18, 2013 at 7:19 am

    Thank you very much. I am vegetarian and have always felt left out when everyone salivates over thai dishes and places to go to. Now I can try this out when next in bkk!

  26. cemput tigatiga Posted on December 16, 2013 at 4:08 am

  42. Mattisun Hurst Posted on July 30, 2017 at 3:45 am

    Thank you for this video. I plane on going to Thailand and I was not gonna go if I had to eat meat

  43. The Veggie Passport Posted on August 10, 2017 at 10:05 am

    Thanks for this! I've just posted a video about veggie food specifically in Phuket – if anyone is interested please check it out! 🙂

  44. Greg Austin Posted on September 15, 2017 at 9:43 am

    Even the vegetarian dishes in Thailand has the power to make you drool !!!!!

  45. sdushdiu Posted on January 21, 2018 at 6:22 pm

    One of the FEW vegetarian/vegan/whole food plant based locations IN Bangkok, where finding something without meat or eggs, and heaven forbid oil, is near impossible among too of the Westerners and hippy wannabees on a quest for authentic imitation Western junk food and pizza and (than in Amsterdam!!!) where a Big Mac starts out at ~$8+USD and goes to ~$10+ and the average domestic beer starts at ~80 bhat ($2.53USD) and easily goes to 130 bhat ($4.19 USD) for the 640ml. But so many persist in the belief that all Buddhists are vegetarian and that vegetarian food is common in Thailand, as after all, they've seen all the episodes of Kung Fu…
    Folks, the fact is that commercial vegetarian/vegan/WFPB food is very difficult to find in Thailand and China, despite anecdotal claims made elsewhere. So while the selection of restaurant and street food is 'deficient', the availability of vegetables, fruit and more in the abundant wet markets makes cooking healthily and well much easier.

    Hi Mark,

    Wondering if your vegetarian guide is still available through any means? Or is it now part of the eating Thai food book?

    Ps. Love your videos and would really appreciate even more vegetarian videos, even if they may not be that popular.

  58. Aparna Mohan Ogale Posted on July 22, 2019 at 2:18 am

    Thanks for the video. I am vegetarian and soon going to visit Thailand… For one meal how much it costs for 2 persons?(approximately)
