Tesakan Kin Jay (Vegetarian Festival) is approaching, so we're featuring veg-centric dishes this month! Going meat-free can be easy and yummy too. With restaurants offering up to 30% off vegetarian or plant-based dishes, and complimentary sides and drinks, eating clean will be a breeze!
*Please note that the dishes promoted here may contain ingredients that are not considered 'jay'.
Many people stick to a strict 'jay' diet for spiritual cleansing and merit-making.
To cleanse the body, they don't consume any animal products or pungent vegetables.
Yaowarat is the go-to place for vegetarian street food during Jay Festival.
Look out for bright yellow flags or signs displayed at shops that are offering ‘jay’ foods!
