ChuChai Review

Vegetarians and meat eaters love this casual Thai restaurant where no meat is served but the chefs prepare meatless versions of such classics as calamari with basil, crispy duck with spinach, chicken with green beans, fish with three hot sauces, and beef with yellow curry and coconut milk—substituting the real thing for soy and seitan. ChuChai is known for their miam kram—an appetizer of coconut, ginger, pepper, nuts, and lime—and the mock duck with soy sauce.

    Chuchai is all about exquisite vegetarian food. When substitute flavours of meats beat the real ones, it's quite an experience: I recommend, if you go there for the 1st time, to try the duck-substituted dish -> it's pure amazement for the palate (unrivaled savourish taste)! Kudos for the creativity and this unique type of ambitious cuisine (it wont be a michelin star restaurant anytime might even become borying in the long run if you go there too oftently...but it will seduce the curiosity of your palates not with new type of avant-garde cuisine..far from that...but with it's own unique ability of susbstituting your usual meats by vegeterian "alter egos" that are as good as their originals).
    Interesting and refreshing food experience!
