For many people, Thai food is absolutely their number one cuisine. A lot of it has to do with the amazing ingredients like lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and galangal that give a real freshness to the flavours and the sort of lightness that you just don't get, for example, in Indian curries.
Unfortunately, for vegetarians and vegans, the chance to sample these spicy delights can be limited. If you're looking for a Massaman or a green curry in Singapore, we have good news. There are some super-delicious meat-free Thai curries out there, and we've been searching the very best vegetarian takeaways in Singapore to find them.
The result? These five fantastic choices that everyone can enjoy.
1. Gaeng Phed Wan Tau-Hu Pak - Jim Thompson Restaurant
First stop on our trail for the very best vegetarian Thai curries in Singapore takes us to the famous Jim Thompson Restaurant where they serve a mean Gaeng Phed Wan Tau-Hu Pak. For the uninitiated, this is the classic spicy red curry which is prepared using Thai eggplant, sweet basil leaves, vegetables and bean curd. If you prefer a milder-flavoured dish, then the version with broccoli is also a great choice.
2. Thai Jungle Curry with Tofu and Vegetables - Bali Thai
Get a taste of the wild with this delicious jungle curry from Bali Thai where they specialise in Thai and Indonesian fusion cuisine. It's cooked in sweet and creamy coconut milk and contains a range of vegetables including mini sweetcorn and peas along with fried tofu to add some texture and protein. It's also available in yellow, red and green curry versions - just choose according to your taste!
3. Curry Potato and Carrot Stew - Real Food
Real Food's curry potato and carrot stew is wheat and gluten-free as well as being ideal for vegans to enjoy. The vegetables are simmered in a rich tomato-based sauce infused with Thai herbs and spices and garnished with fresh coriander.
4. Tofu, Long Beans and Jasmine Rice - Bangkok Jam
Some people enjoy a drier sort of curry that lets the flavours of the ingredients stand out without being covered in sauce. If this includes you then this dish from Bangkok Jam could be perfect. The tofu is deep fried and then served with that other staple of Thai cuisine – long beans – on a bed of jasmine rice. The result is light, delicately flavoured and delicious.
5. Kang Kiew Wan - Sala Thai Kitchen
