It’s hard to do vegan Thai food right. Either it’s lacking the briny fish sauce flavor that is the backbone of Thai cooking, the vegan proteins are oddly chewy, or the absence of dried shrimp leaves a gaping hole in the dish. Glur Thai in Chelsea does not have this problem. Their vegan Ground Impossible Gra Prow sneakily has a pungency that reads like fish sauce but isn’t (although they won’t disclose what their secret ingredient is). The Vegan Khao Mun Gai Tod (aka Hainanese chicken) and rice tastes just as chicken and rice should: velvety and comforting—like the rice was actually cooked in schmaltz, even though it wasn’t. The hearty Vegan Curry Puff is also a stellar option, and everything can be washed down with vegan Thai Iced Tea made with oat milk. This is a great spot for vegans and non-vegans alike: the plant-based options are just as good, if not better, than the meat options.
