I made a dinner date with a friend of mine for Anchan Restaurant. She’d heard great things about it and it’s also one of few vegetarian restaurants open late around the Nimman area of Chiang Mai.
So yes, everything on their menu is vegetarian. It’s also organic and locally-sourced. The menu changes each week depending on which veggies they have available but the food is always incredible.
After a good workout at the gym, I was starving! I wanted something substantial so ordered the cashew nut veggie stir fry.
I used to think Anchan’s portion sizes were a little on the smaller side, but this definitely wasn’t. The stir fry was a mix of carrots, corn, green beans, tomato, bell pepper, spring onion, tofu, onion and garlic, and the best part was – there was tonnes of cashew nuts. More often than not in Chiang Mai I’ve had a cashew nut stir fry that comes with just a few cashews sprinkled on top. This meal probably had the most I’ve had in one dish.
I also thought there was a really good range of vegetables. Again, a lot of places tend to do a vegetable stir fry with just the same type of veg over and over. It was especially nice to have both red and yellow sweet bell pepper. The main downside of this place is the prices are very high for Chiang Mai.
I had a ginger and cinnamon iced too to go with my meal which had a really had a good kick to it! Lots of ginger.
