Vegan MoFo: Lunchin' it up

Tommasina and I tried a new-to-us restaurant today.  VegeThai in southeast Portland is a cute spot with very friendly staff.  Our lunches came with complimentary vegetable soup.  We ordered Thai iced teas, Tom Yum soup, green papaya salad, pad Thai, and a spicy tofu and basil dish.  VegeThai is, as the name suggests, an all-vegetarian restaurant, and they were knowledgeable about ingredients.  Virtues in a restaurant, me thinks.

Pad Thai is my favorite dish, and while this one was decent, I haven't given up my search for the best in Portland.  Overall, the dishes could have used more flavor, especially the papaya salad and the tofu basil.

The verdict: I'd go here again, especially for lunch since they have a punch card.  The dishes were affordable and, gosh darn it, I really like friendly staff!


  1. When we visit Portland, I will make sure we stop here! I've been craving Thai food recently...especially Thai Tea.

  2. mmm! I want more coconut milk Thai iced tea!
