Get ready for the best Thai-Malaysian food in Toronto! As the name suggests, Jean’s Vegetarian Kitchen’s entire menu is vegetarian and if you hold the egg on a few dishes, you’ve got a completely vegan experience (no fear of fish sauce in these dishes).
You’ll be hard pressed to choose a favourite from Jean’s extensive menu. Starting with the appetizers, the Crispy Spring Rolls are deliciously crunchy, stuffed with glass noodles and fresh vegetables, served with a perfectly balanced sweet and sour dipping sauce.
Don’t skip the soup course! Jean’s Pumpkin Soup is velvety perfection. Coconut cream, pumpkin puree, and curry spices blended together and served with toasted onions for topping. It is heaven in a bowl. Hot & Sour Soup lovers rejoice! This tangy bowl is so good you’ll want seconds.
The Mango Salad is so fresh and flavourful you’d be happy to eat just that for dinner… long slivers of juicy mango, red onion, red peppers, cashews, cilantro, and a wonderfully tangy dressing, all topped off with fresh shredded coconut. A fantastic twist on a traditional Thai salad.
Jean offers several Curry dishes, all with your choice of mixed vegetables & tofu, mock chicken, mock shrimp, mock meatball, and mock duck. Jean uses her own freshly blended curry spices which can also be purchased at the restaurant for whipping up your own creations at home.
Curry not your thing? Choose from a wide array of noodle, stir fry, and rice dishes… Pad Thai, Singapore Noodles, Laksa, Ginger Chillies Tofu, Kao Pad and more. And don’t think Jean falls short on dessert: there’s Mango Sticky Rice, Fried Banana with Coconut Milk, and Sweet Potato Pudding with Coconut Milk, to name a few.
Jean’s Vegetarian Kitchen will quickly become your go-to Thai spot. Can’t decide what to order first? Jean’s husband is always more than happy to make a recommendation for you.
