Find healthy eating at its yummiest in Albuquerque’s new veggie restaurant
Open for just a few months, the restaurant now allows those closer to the university to experience the same good food that those in the Northeast Heights have had at their location.

Thai Vegan offers a huge array of options, from appetizers, salads and a variety of interesting soups to the chef’s specials, curries, wraps and even burgers (soy and tofu). But most people say skip the burgers and go for something very different.
There are so many good things to try. The garden power salad is gigantic and a big favorite. You can’t go wrong with any of the pad thai. The fried spring rolls are just right, and the chicken nugget appetizers with red chile sauce are yummy.
When one thinks Thai, noodles and rice may come to mind. But there are many hearty dishes available at Thai Vegan to fill the tummy, like the lentil loaf, mushroom steak and pork chop topped with barbecue sauce and pineapple. Meat lovers need not fear coming here.

The budget conscious will like that individual combo meals are offered at both lunch and dinner for under $10. There are also menu items for kids, and takeout is available. Do keep in mind that Thai Vegan does not serve alcohol.
Service at Thai Vegan is known for being friendly, quick and efficient. The owner has even been seen singing “Happy Birthday” to customers. The banana spring rolls drizzled in chocolate are not a bad way to celebrate.
