When we first moved to Grandstand, looking for vegan food options was such a hassle. There was basically zero vegan food in the area and it was quite a challenge for us to get our meals 😔. We then started to microwave our products like the Amy’s Organic Vegan GF Lasagne and Amy’s Organic Tofu Scramble Wraps however, we can’t have too much of a good thing 😝!
One day, we took a stroll around the area and had a chat with E-Sarn’s owner, Neng. E-Sarn is the Thai Restaurant located next to our shop 🇹🇭. We asked her to experiment making some vegan dishes for us and without hesitation, she said “Yes!” 🤩.
We then had her try a few of our products including the OmniMeat – All Purpose Plant Based Minced Meat. First, she cooked Thai Fried Rice 🍚 with it then she tried it with fried dumplings 🥟 and OMG, it was delicious 🥰 🥰! She eventually tried the Impossible meat to make spring rolls and her latest addition, the Monkey Head Mushroom 🐵 🍄! If you aren’t familiar with this, the Monkey Head Mushroom is a mushroom that is a very popular meat alternative in vegetarian Chinese cuisine and has a chewy and meaty texture when cooked properly 😋.
Now, E-sarn’s vegan menu has grown and now includes Thai Fried Rice and even Tom Yum Soup! Because of this, we don’t worry much about our staff meals anymore. 🥰
Not only that, Casa Roma, an Italian restaurant 🇮🇹 where our dear friend, Chef Ania, 👩🍳 who is a consultant, boasts an exciting vegan menu.
