Our first meal in the upscale Sukhumvit area of Bangkok was at Vistro. This Vegan Bistro is big and bright and filled with natural light and plants. Besides the fantastic food, it’s a lovely space to just hang out or catch up on some work.
We visited here twice during our stay in Bangkok, once for lunch and once for dinner.
Our first dish was the Quesadilla – it came with a spicy jackfruit filling, guacamole, salsa and cheese. The guacamole was delicious and so was the jackfruit filling. The buttered tortilla hit the spot as well. Every bite was so tasty and well balanced. This is the first time outside India that we have experienced such a consistently good level of seasoning.
The Cheesy Mushroom sandwich was next. This was one of the most popular sandwiches at Imagine Cafe, the Vegan cafe we ran for 4 years in Mumbai. The buttered toast was on point, the cheesy mushroom filling was really tasty and overall it was exactly what you want from a sandwich like this.
The Cheese Balls were just OK. There was too little cheese and too much of a starchy filling. The crumb was great and the dip was super tasty as well. But the doughy consistency of the filling was off-putting.
The Fried Chicken Tempura roll was awesome! It had avocado, fried chicken, and Gochujang chilli sauce. It was served with a teriyaki inspired dipping sauce. Very tasty!
The Mooping Soi 24 was very interesting! The skewered mock meat was creative – it was a soy based mock meat wrapped in a Konjac skin and grilled in a brown sugar marinade. It was sweet and smoky and very chewy! The Konjac skin was a bit too good – it actually reminded me of the chewy parts of meat eating that I didn’t particularly enjoy! It was delicious and it paired wonderfully with the other stuff on the plate. It came with a properly spicy Som Tam salad (Indian certified spicy!), some riceberry balls and a delicious tamarind based dipping sauce.
They had a huge array of desserts but we were quite full, so we decided to go with an icecream. Even within ice creams they had 6/7 flavours. We ended our second meal with the peanut butter and chocolate chip ice cream. This was truly incredible! The texture was somewhere between an ice cream and a cheese cake – it was so, so decadent! A perfectly simple and comforting way to end our otherwise adventurous meal.
Vistro is very expensive, but I must admit, they delivered on every single dish we ordered.
The cost of our lunch meal ( Fresh coconut, Quesadilla and Truffle grilled cheese sandwich) was 800THB which is approx 1900 Rs.
The cost of our dinner meal ( Cheese balls, Sushi rolls, Mooping Soi 24, Peanut butter Ice cream) was 1077 THB which is 2560 Rs.
