Respond to Review of CLOSED: Herwin's Vegan Kitchen
Review: I went to Herwin's almost every day during my time in Bangkok. It was a 10 block walk from my Hotel but worth it. I usually just ordered the Thai dishes and they were great. And by great, I meant very flavorful and quite healthy. Most of my time in Thailand has been on the beach in Lamai, Koh Samui where I go to the Spa Restaurant, and I've eaten at some very good vegan restaurants during my 15 years in California. Don't be put off by the fried food offerings (unless you like those). Herwin has accommodated the locals which include many Indians and Thais (and Farangs), and thus the menu is quite varied from Thai, to Italian, to "american" (vegan of course), and a few fusion ideas mixed in. The vibe is cool, in that you might meet one of Herwin's kids, and both Herwin and his Wife cook, and Herwin plays some cool music (was playing the New York Dolls during my last visit). Thanks to folks like Herwin (and Wife) one can eat well in Bangkok.
