Mosquito Heaven

Posted on 09 / 17 / 2015

Not a bad place, and certainly a good place to eat if you're staying at the guesthouse (as I was), but I'd say that for a vegan, the menu has some options, but it's very basic. Nothing really that you won't find or at least be able to request in any other Thai restaurant, so I'm not really sure what justification Mut Mee has for being on Happy Cow.

Still, it's comfortable, and a very nice place to sit right on the banks of the Mekong. It's surrounded by trees and plant life, which although pleasant, meant that when I was sitting here in the evenings I was getting feasted on by mosquitoes, and I'm someone that doesn't get bitten often, so be prepared for that. There is no indoor seating area.

Other than that though it's a nice place with basic vegan choices. And considering what little else is available in Nong Khai, you could certainly do worse.

I ate at the restaurant floating on the river. (There's also one on the riverbank, in a garden, run by the same people). The setting was lovely (floating on the Mekong) and there was a pleasant ambiance with friendly staff. It was nice to see both locals and foreigners there, although it seems to be a place aimed mostly at tourists. The vegetarian section on the menu wasn't huge, but it had a decent number of dishes - traditional Thai curries and stir-fries. The garden restaurant menu is similar but a bit cheaper I think. I had a cashew nut stir fry and fried rice. They brought out fish sauce with the fried rice (in a dish on the side), even though I was very clear about being vegetarian and ordered off the vegetarian section. Well, that isn't an unusual occurrence in Thailand. Together with a fresh coconut, it cost me 215 bat, so not as cheap as some local places, but not unreasonable. Also, in their favour, this was the only restaurant I could find that had veg*n options that was open at night in Nong Kai.

Pros: Open at night, Pleasant setting, Vegetarian section on menu
Cons: Better understanding of vegetarianism needed, More variety of vegetarian dishes needed

My name is Julian and I am the owner of Mut Mee Garden Guest House and our restaurant here. I would like to say that we are very sensitive to the needs and choices of different people from around the world. We realise that while many people are vegetarian, that within that choice many people have individual needs and we are ready to tailor our cooking to suit. As our kitchen is open to the public, all are encouraged to walk inside to talk to our cooks, Tia and Man. Moreover you can watch how dishes are prepared. We hope this is of help to those with specific needs.
