Chansom Alley, Chumphon, Thailand

Jay (veg) style restaurant in a quiet location in the center. Hot food and fresh salads prepared to order, some of which are vegan. Speaks basic English. Will accommodate special requests. Uses some mock meats but be omitted. Not to be confused with Jay House a few doors down. 2017 NOTE: maybe closed/shut down - please verify and let HappyCow know.

Probably closed - Edit

I didn't find this restaurant. And I was trying to find it during the 2 and a half weeks (February and March 2017) I have lived in Chumphon. It is probably not open anymore. :(

friendly tasty jay restaurant in Chumphon - Edit

I was given the address and directions to Jay Sep by the owner of Easy Power (another vegetarian restaurant a few streets away) and am so very glad I went there!

Jay Sep is located on the same street as Jay House - I mention that as I'm not sure I have placed the location marker accurately. If you take a look at the photos, you will easily be able to recognize the front of the restaurant.

I was welcomed into this little place during a hot January afternoon, the restaurant is small and cosy, the kitchen area clean and organized. I couldn't figure out what to order, although there are photos all over the place, so t's easy to point and order. However, I'm not a fan of the mock meat so prevalent in Jay style outlets, but omitting it was no problem, nor was simple communication - so everything was relaxed and stress free.

The first thing I ordered was a noodle soup - first of all, I had to figure out how to explain what 'noodles' were! After that hurdle, the owner and another girl set about making a tasty, hot, slightly spicy noodle soup that tasted fabulous. I couldn't figure out where the beautiful purple colour had come from (beetroot? See photo) - if anyone knows, please leave the answer in your comments. In any case, this was a huge bowl of noodle soup which I thoroughly enjoyed. (cost was about 35BHT)

Communication was at times a little confusing, however, the owner seemed unfazed by my request to omit the fake meat items and we muddled through a simple conversation and a tasty meal.

The next dish was stir-fried noodles and mushrooms, in a light sauce - also made to order, hot and very tasty indeed. I've also enclosed a photo of this dish - another rather large portion (about 30BHT)

Although feeling pretty full at this moment, I quite fancied some kind of fresh salad, also made to order, a SPICY/tangy paste made in the wooden mortar and mixed with apples, tomatoes and peanuts - tasty stuff, unfortunately my eyes were bigger than my stomach and I simply couldn't finish even half of it...

In total, the three dishes came to 105THB, which I think is very reasonable. Ice and filtered water provided free of charge and although there is no huge rush of people, there were customers popping in all the time I was there.

One last thing, I don't have the language skills to understand if this was completely vegan or mainly vegetarian with a few vegan items. It would be great if someone with better language skills and understanding can help figure this out:)

Pros: friendly, inexpensive,, open all day, relaxed
