Jay Myjam Jay is arguably the best cheap vegetarian/vegan restaurant in Chiang Mai. It is an absolute delight with its wonderfully presented menus. Their soups are especially tasty, packed with delicious vegetables, mock meats, mushrooms and other great combinations, served with a tasty broth.
This restaurant is not officially in Nimmanhaemin but it is very close and it is so delicious that it is worth a mention and short extra walk. It is located just east of Nimmanhaemin Road, along Suthep Road near to Wat Suan Dok.
The staff at Jay Myjam Jay are super sweet but they do not speak any English. That is not a problem here as every menu item in their extensive list is accompanied by a clear photograph and ingredient description.
The spicy salads are very hot for Western standards so you may want to order them without chili.
Nearly all items are 40 baht which is an absolute bargain as the portion sizes are large. They also offer free salad and free cold drinking water. This place is super clean which is a pleasant delight and you can tell the ladies take great pride in their work. Jay Myjam Jay is the sort of place that could turn a carnivore into a Vegetarian. You could eat something different every day for a month and still have plenty left to try. The “Chief Photographer” at Chiang Mai blog would happily eat there every day for the rest of her life.
Open hours: 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
