One of our fav places in Bangkok
Posted on 10 / 03 / 2011
After leaving Bangkok and going to Phuket we really missed Mr. Yim's. This is just a little seating area off to the side of Soi Rambuttri. The seating is for 3 different food carts, Mr, Yims is the only one with vegetarian and vegan options.
I have an allergy to soy-that's kinda tough in SE Asia where vegan food and tofu seem to be synonymous. At Mr. Yims it was no problem to ask for no tofu. We ate here several times. Every dish we had was awesome-tom yum and tom kha soup, fried veggies with garlic (super awesome garlic taste, not for the faint of heart). Writing this a month later I can't remember the rest of what we ate there. I just remember loving it.
A downside is that everything is stir fired-so oil is used to cook everything. The food itself wasn't super oily, you just knew that it wasn't the healthiest food you were eating. Another positive-I watched Mr. Yim make our tom yum soup one day, he makes it to order, sautés the veggies in spices and adding in coconut milk-it's fantastic.
When we go back to Bangkok we will most definitely stop here.
Consistently great food, Perfect portions
Some people smoke in the seating area
