Yota Vegetarian Foods

Overall rating: 4.5 stars 3 Reviews
Very small restaurant featuring usually 3-4 food selections. Try the "kai jae" (veggie "eggs"), or the home-made mock meat strips. Also selling a small selection of vegan groceries such as canned curries with mock meat. Located next door to the left of Chennai Kitchen (has a few stairs and a yellow banner in front). Price: Inexpensive more-less

My Favorite Lunch Spot

5 Posted on 01 / 26 / 2014

This is one of my favorite places to eat lunch in Bangkok. In many Thai veggie places the food is pre-cooked and often cold or just a little warm. But here the food is always hot. Usually a choice for two curries, two soup type dishes and 2-3 stir-fry type dishes. Also quite a few types of fake meat.

Owners are very friendly and helpful. Get full at lunchtime (12-1), so go a little earlier or later of you can. It's ok to share a table here, as that is what all the locals do.

Open Mon-Fri, closed Sun. Often closed on Chinese and Thai holidays.

Highly recommended.

Pros: Vegan, Hot food, Great tasting food
Cons: Closed Sunday

Tiny, simple and pleasant

4 Posted on 07 / 20 / 2011

This is certainly not a place to go if you're really hungry, since the selection is quite limited and the amount you get is quite small. The lady who runs it however is a delight and her food is simple but tasty.

Its says in the restaurant description here on happycow that the mock meat is home-made. We confirmed today that this is not true - they are imported from Taiwan. We avoided that without too many problems though as it was sold separately from the other dishes and was definitely optional.

We had a red curry, a thin chili-vege soup, an eggplant dish of some description and another vege soup, all thrown over what looked to be brown rice. All went down fine. No obvious MSG issues but hey you never really do know in places like this.

The shop was clean, bright and pleasant and we'd have no hesistations popping in again for a quite bite.

We were still hungry afterwards so ended up checking out another vegetarian Thai place (more of a street stand with plastic chairs) that we found across the road. There were about 5 selections there, but we went for a green curry and some noodles. They were kind of average and had mock meat in them but were edible. Had the feeling this ones might have had more MSG in them, judging by the taste and the way we felt afterwards.

Lots of Indian places around the area and an interesting Indian temple to see as well, so not a bad day outing.

Pros: delightful owner, bright clean shop, simple but tasty food
Cons: small portions, not much selection, mock meat not handmade (but optional)

Youta not Yota

5 Posted on 07 / 12 / 2011

Typical hole-in-the-wall Bangkok vegan place with typically great vegan fare. Located just around the corner from the famous Sri Mariamman temple in the Silom section of the city. It is not easy to spot, though there are a lot of small yellow banners inside the place, which looks like a little grocery. They seem to specialize in mock meats, which one chooses to go with delicious freshly-prepared curries. Very inexpensive - I think my lunch cost about 130 Baht (~5). A middle-aged couple runs the place - he cooks. No English but very friendly.

Pros: excellent food, healthy cuisine, good value
Cons: limited menu
