Delicious vegan food behind Chiang Mai University.
Posted on 06 / 24 / 2014
This restaurant is on Suthep Rd. behind CMU. The whole street is full of restaurants. Jay Mai Jam Jay means extraordinary vegan or not so ordinary vegan. They have a variety of food and everything we tried, we liked. The rice dish is delicious, the thick Tom Yum soup is better than a fancy restaurant. They offer MANY Thai salads. A friend told me that their mushroom salad is awesome.
After 6pm, they get in spicy curry rice salad (Namm-Klook, แหนมคลุก) from another vendor packed in a bag on the counter, those are the bomb. I always get two for myself and it runs out by 7.30.
They also have hot pot soup, which is interesting, but we haven't tried. Their fried rice cake appetizer (Northern local food called Kao-Ram-Furn, ข้าวแรมฟืน) inside the front glass display is pretty good, but a little greasy. It comes with an interesting sweet, spicy sauce.
One of our most visited vegan restaurants.
