Adios to Gourmet Vegan Cuisine, here is the McHerwin Pizza, the newest creation here in the vegan cafe, a Pizza loaded with French Fries, Hotdogs and Satay sauce !!!
Just how the kiddies like it !
The Hotdogs are actually, as you probably guessed, Soydogs, as vegan as vegan can be, and the french fries aren't tasteless precut supermarket french fries but we cut them from real potatoes after you order them.
This pizza tastes great especially with a beer or two. (we dont sell beer but bring one from the local 7-11.) McHerwin Pizza 245 Baht.
Update 23 februari : we have created another terrible yummy pizza ; the Suki Yaki Chicken Pizza.
Don's ask, it's vegan of course !Not on the written menu yet, so just ask for it ! 195 Baht.
Cupcakes are a kind of darling from the vegan bakery movement so to speak, especially since punk vegan celebertity chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz and fellow cook Romero dedicated a whole cooking book to these little cakes called Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World.
Matcha (Japanese Green Tea) Cupcake.
Anyway, we here at the vegan cafe started to make cupcakes just for fun, and to eat of course. We were so pleasantly amazed how tasty they are and how creative one can be (and has to be) as a cook to make cupcakes. In short, cupcakes are just little food packages in which the cook can play with various tastes and ingredients to create a pleasant and amazing bite.
Almond Cupcake with whipped cream on top.
We offer cupcakes in various tastes, a minimum of 6 cupcakes, and ordered one day ahead. Great to eat here at the vegan cafe or as a gift for a special occasion, or even as "travel food".
We have "Lemon Poppy Seeds Cream Filled Cupcakes, "Almond Flavored Cream Filled & Chocolate Dipped Cupcakes", "Coconut Cupcakes" and "Matcha (Green Tea) Cream Filled Cupcakes".
The new menu for 2012 is finished. Our menu now offers 82 delicious vegan dishes, including ten vegan pizzas.
As always, our pizza dough is a delicate mix of regular flour and whole weat flour, giving it a good taste and still a light structure. NEW is that we ditched the bottle and started to make our own tomato paste for the base of our pizzas. Simple yet oh so more tasty than tomato paste from bottles.
Our NEW Pizzas are a veganised classic Pizza Margherita. A simple looking pizza, but so delicious with the fresh tomatoes, basil leaves, and round slices of silken tofu. Another new p'zza is the Holy Smokin Hummus Pizza, a taste bud rocker, and a Vegetarian Pizza, which is the more traditional veg pizza you get in all the non veg pizza chains, with fresh corn, brocoli, etc.
One new dish we make is already a hit in our own family and that is the veganised Spaghetti Carbonara. This classic Italian dish is originaly made with bacon, eggs, and cheese, pretty Uneatable for a vegan, but we replaced all the animal ingredients with yummy veganised counterparts, and IT WORKED !
Besides we also extended our Thai menu with some norh Tai dishes like Nam Prik Hed (spicy mushroom dip with vegetables) and a Mee Kati (thin noodles topped with a curry cocosmilk sauce) , got some new potato curries like Chickpea Potato Currie, have a few more salads like a Potato Garlic Salad, a new Pineapple Soyshake, and, well, we like to see you in the vegan cafe here and try our new menu for yourself !
See ya !
We at the cafe offer around 8 vegan pizza's. Our most succesfull Pizza is the ISA PIZZA, a delicious pizza with Non Dairy Ricotta Tofu Cheese, black olives, oyster mushrooms, and pesto basil sauce. The recipe is from the Vegan With A Vengeance Cooking book.
Since last week we have another PIZZA that is a tast bud rocker, the Roasted Sweet Bellpepper Hummus PIZZA. A simple looking pizza with homemade tomato paste base, topped with a hummus made of chickpeas and roasted sweet bellpeppers, giving it a natural smoky taste, and all of this topped with chunks of brocoli.
This pizza isnt on the printed menu yet, but already can be ordered.
MORE PIZZA NEWS :
Besides are regular pizza's, we also started serving thin crispy pizzas. If we can believe our customers, and we don't have any reason not to believe them, they are better than the Pizzas in Govindas, the popular vegetarian Italian joint in Sukumvit. And thats a compliment, because there pizzas truly are very good, although most are vegetarian (with cheese) and our pizzas are vegan.
