Lan Boy Boon (ร้านร้อยบุญ) vegetarian restaurant is a local style Chinese Thai vegetarian dining experience. The small restaurant on the corner of the old building is marked by an outdoor cart with the yellow “Jay Label,” on it (pictured below).

Upon seeing the selection of Khao Rod Gaeng (ข้าวราดแกง) dishes already prepared, I was ready to dig in and start choosing what 3 item combination I wanted.

3 Item Combo Meal

We ordered 2 plates.

Here are some of the dishes that are worth a mention:

  • Yam Mamuang Proteen – It was a sour green mango salad supplemented by meaty chunks of protein and dressed with tasty herbs and chilies.
  • Gaeng Phet – Some kind of red chili based curry with chunks of vegetables and basil.
  • Grilled Mushrooms – The brown steak looking material is actually big pieces of meaty mushrooms. They are so good that they could easily pass for a beefy steak.

Kuay Teow Jay เส้นเล็กต้มยำเจ

Just out of curiosity I tried the Kuay Teow Jay (เส้นเล็กต้มยำเจ). Nothing special, just a pretty ordinary bowl of noodles with that slight cardboard vegetarian taste.

Lan Boy Boon (ร้านร้อยบุญ) is a nice little Chinese looking Thai restaurant with a small buffet table and a few neatly organized tables. The vegetarian Thai food is freshly prepared in the morning, so be sure to show up at brunch for the best food.

The Bottom Line

The food was normal vegetarian Jay Thai food. It was good and I especially loved the mixed rice dishes and those meaty mushrooms!
