Gone are the days when going vegan meant settling for salads and giving up on all the pleasures of eating desserts. With the vegan lifestyle gaining more attention, many restaurants and bakeries around Bangkok are coming up with creative creations to satisfy the growing demand for vegan-friendly options. And if you have a sweet tooth, you’ll be happy to know that many spots around the city are ready to fill your bellies with decadent vegan desserts that rival their counterparts. Whether you are vegan, dairy-free, following a special diet, or just craving a sweet treat, here are the best places to get vegan desserts in Bangkok.
1. The Banana Warrior
Opening Hours: Daily, 10:00 – 20:00
Address: LukKai Thong Restaurant in EmQuartier, The Helix Building Floor 4, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110
Plant-based, organic, ethically sourced, and cross-cultural, The Banana Warrior makes the first on the list for its offering of beautiful vegan desserts. Everything on the menu is almost too beautiful to eat. But take one bite, and you’ll never want to stop. Don’t miss out on their titular dessert, the original banana bread called The Banana Warrior. It’s flavourful, moist, and tastes like the traditional banana bread you know and love. For the chocolate lovers, the Triple X It chocolate banana bread will get your taste bud dancing. Another favourite is The Hobnob, which is a biscuit made with almond flour and oat base, drizzled with homemade chocolate glaze. It’s so good you wouldn’t believe it’s vegan.
2. HEBE Plant Bar
Opening Hours: Monday – Friday, 10:00 – 19:00
Address: 66 Pridi Banomyong 26 Alley, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 1011
Who can live without ice cream, especially in a city as hot as Bangkok? Thanks to HEBE Plant Bar, those who are vegan and dairy-free don’t have to live in a sad ice cream-less existence anymore. HEBE offers fully vegan ice cream made with 100% natural ingredients. Plus, each cup is only between 40 and 120 calories, so you can enjoy it without any guilt — just total pleasure. For something made with healthy ingredients and so low in calories, there’s nothing artificial in the flavour. Each one is surprisingly rich, creamy, and smooth. After tasting it, you will never miss non-vegan ice cream anymore. We recommend trying Viva Violet, a tasty blueberry yoghurt with a lemon swirl. The Twilight Thai Tea, Macchiato Mojo, and Mighty Matcha will also melt your heart.
