Hidden Veggie Gem: Phuket, Cherngtalay
Updated: Sep 28, 2020
Granted it's not the grandest site, but this Phuket gem really is the bee's knees of vegetarian food
108 Vegetarian Cuisine recently (July 2020) moved from it's previous location on Bandon Cherngtalay Road to a small side street which you might never drive past (or notice if you did). Lucky for me, I literally live 2 minutes away and this was the saving grace in me finding their new location.
Clean, good quality vegetarian food at super low prices
It's not easy running a restaurant in the current climate, let alone moving from your locally known location to a new, non main road placement. So, if you are in the area please show your support and get treated to some fantastic, tasty food for around 50 bht per dish.
Hands up, I have honestly never had a bad meal
I am not vegetarian, but I don't miss meat one bit with these dishes. Freshly prepared, you can enjoy dine in (only a couple of tables) or takeaway. Please note that they do use plastic bags for takeaway (as with most places) so if you can then bring along your own containers and they will happily fill these for you.
The menu is varied, as you can see below, but if you need any recommendations then my top 5 would have to be:
1. Pomelo Salad
2. Spicy Mushroom Salad
3. Fried Rice With Green Curry
4. Stir Fried Spicy Eggplant
5. Stir Fried Tofu Bubble with Cashew Nuts
They also serve some 'ready to go' dishes for around 30 bht in the morning also. I often stop on my way back from the school run to pick up the days curry or noodle dish.
The Bottom Line
Great vegetarian dishes served at excellent value for money. Very basic place, but service is friendly for eat in or takeaway, and they always deliver on taste.
Open 7am - 3pm Monday to Saturday
Address - 42 Soi Cherngtalay 16, Choeng Thale, Thalang District, Phuket 83110
