Recently came across Sawadee from the Vegan Kitchen and I was ecstatic to try out their range of authentic Thai food that is all vegan. Being a vegetarian, I often like to explore vegan options too and I was taken aback by the delicious food from Sawadee Firstly, let’s talk about packaging. I really commend them on the fact that they are being so conscious of the environment. They avoid single use plastics as much as possible. The rice, noodles and salads come in paper packaging while the sauces and curries come in dainty glass jars. Coming to the food, I tried the summer rolls with peanut dipping sauce, som tam (raw papaya salad), Khow suey, Thai green curry and drunken noodles and the food was fantastic to say the least. The summer rolls were generously filled with rice noodles, carrots, tofu and lettuce and the peanut dipping sauce was indeed the perfect accompaniment to it. The raw papaya salad was the epitome of perfection and authenticity. It really hit the right notes of spicy and sour and we thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn’t make out it’s actually vegan. The noodles, Khow Suey and Thai green curry were subtle and mildly flavoured but delicious nevertheless. I would definitely be ordering again! Surely worth the try
