My Thai Vegetarian Café

Lean and lovely
December 27, 2006 11:56:41 PM

Thai-food connoisseurs are plenty familiar with tofu- and vegetable-heavy menus, but Coolidge Corner’s latest window into Southeast Asia takes that theme one step farther. Instead of noodles, curries, and stir-fries peppered with beef, poultry, and seafood, My Thai serves everything from veggie-chicken, veggie-duck, veggie-shrimp, veggie-scallops, and veggie-squid, to — you guessed it — barbecued gluten. And tofu, of course.

Sweet tooths will appreciate the Temple Soup ($2.95), a thin, slightly syrupy, coconut-milk-based concoction featuring chunks of sweet potato, butternut squash, and peanuts. There’s no mock meat here, so soy-shy carnivores accompanying their vegetarian friends can breathe easy over this appetizer.

Those crispy-exteriored fried tofu triangles are always my personal protein of choice when dining Thai-style. If tofu’s your thing too, give the tasty Tow-Hoo Tod ($5.95) a go; garlic and lemongrass add a savory zest to the crispy tofu cigars, as does the tangy dipping sauce. Or stick with the basics: straight-up pad Thai ($7.25) and pad see ew ($7.25). After a gulp of the slurpee-like Thai bubble tea ($3), I was already planning my next visit.

My Thai Vegetarian Café, 404 Harvard Street, Brookline | Open Sun - Thur, 11 am - 10 pm; Fri and Sat, 11 am to 11 pm | 617.739.8830.

Everything I tried was delicious & the decor is very classy & tasteful! It's also not too far from the green 'B' line.
