Nice surprise near the beach!

Last night after we watched the sunset on Siesta Beach I used the Happy Cow app on my phone and discovered this restaurant was nearby and offered a Vegan Menu. We were delighted to discover a nice selection of choices, a very helpful waitresses and the willingness to modify preparations to minimize the oils used in preparing the food. We ordered the Papaya Salad to start. The size of the dish would satisfy most as a main dish. It was spicy in the way we like it and there wasn't a shred left! Our group then ordered a variety of curry and rice dishes. Brown rice is available and the vegetables were steamed. Again, the portions are generous but delicious and we all were happy for a bit of a walk after dinner to aid our digestion. I would very much recommend this restaurant to those who are near or on Siesta Key!

Pros: Good Vegan Menu, Outdoor tables, Helpful staff
Cons: Small restaurant, Can be hard to find parking in village

Wonderful Vegan Thai Food

4 Posted on 12 / 15 / 2011

During a week stay in Sarasota we ate twice at Taste of Asia as the food was too good to pass up. Authentic Thai food in along the small strip in Siesta Key village in an elegant setting, wonderful, fast and friendly service and plenty of Vegan and Vegetarian choices. I had the Pad Thai with Tofu which was perfectly done, flavorful, plentiful and delicious. My friends had the Pad Mei which was equally amazing. An additional plus, they serve Beer Lao which is a great beer and goes perfectly with Thai food. All food is served very mild unless you ask for more spice. Highly recommend for Vegans and non-Vegans alike.
Enjoy.

Pros: Delicious Food, Wonderful Service, Flavorful Vegan
Cons: A little pricey , difficult to find

Awesome Vegan Menu

4 Posted on 11 / 21 / 2011

Great choices for both vegetarians and vegans, expertly prepared. LOVE the fresh rolls! Some great new sake flavors available now, too. Well worth the drive out to Siesta Key. Note to former fans: they have MOVED from Main St. Sarasota to Siesta Key!

Solid

Taste of Asia is surprisingly vegan-friendly, featuring a separate menu page for vegan items. They have a few appetizers, including spring rolls and crispy tofu, some soups, rice vermicelli buns, and a host of entrees with vegetables and tofu. Some really good curries, too.

I found it a little strange that to "share" your dish with someone else incurred an extra $4.00 charge, but apparently this is common in Sarasota. Regardless, with a variety of vegan options, Taste of Asia is a good spot for the non-meat-eating crowd to head.

Pros: vegan-friendly, taste
Cons: a little pricey
