If you’re traveling to Chiang Mai, Thailand and need food that is gluten free and dairy free, then there are a couple of really great options that I’ve. Eating gluten free dairy free in Chiang Mai has now become much easier than before!
There are still not a ton of options available, but at least there are a few which can be a lifesaver for those that are vegan, gluten free or dairy free!
Thai Soy Sauce
Years ago I was told that the soy sauce in Thailand did not include wheat, but unfortunately, I’ve not found this to be true. Soy sauce is used in many of the Thai dishes. Many of these dishes do not include soy sauce or ingredient that have gluten, and you would, therefore, think these dishes would be okay to eat But due to cross contamination it’s never 100% certain that it’s completely gluten free. Therefore if you have celiac or sensitive to gluten then it’s just not worth taking the chance. It’s better to go to a place where it says on the menu it’s gluten free and the staff are knowledgeable about it.
Traveling to Chiang Mai? Here are my other posts from Chiang Mai.
I have found two locations in Chiang Mai with gluten free dairy free options. If you know of other places that are gluten free dairy free in Chiang Mai, please let me know! I would love to try them out next time I go.
Pink House Garden Chiang Mai
Pink House Garden Chiang Mai Gluten-free CakeAway is pretty amazing being all gluten free and dairy free. If you’re vegan you’ll love this place as it’s mostly all vegan. What’s even more impressive is they use only organic ingredients. This has to be the healthiest restaurant in Chiang Mai!
Curry, Fried Vegetables & Cake
Their meals are delicious, and they have cakes and bread as well that are all gluten free and dairy free. I mostly ordered the fried cashew with vegetables, and then I would get an omelet on the side. I also tried their Paneng curry, and it was delicious!
They use tempeh in many of their meals for protein. Their meals are definitely filling, and I highly recommend this restaurant for gluten free dairy free food.
It’s a very nice setup with small little bungalows for people to sit inside of as you can see in the pictures. The restaurant is located in a neighborhood (backyard of a pink house) just south of the moat, on a street that is very quiet. The staff are very friendly and they do an excellent job to cater to vegans, celiacs, and those that are dairy free.
Cool Breakfast Chiang Mai
Cool Breakfast in Chiang Mai, Thailand has some amazing meals that are gluten free dairy free in Chiang Mai. My favorite is the Pad Thai and it’s just fantastic! It’s a little westernized which is probably why I love it. Their breakfast menu is pretty impressive with crepes, pancakes, gluten free bread, etc. If you’re on a gluten free dairy free diet, I would highly encourage you to check this place out.
They open at 7AM and close at 2PM. Last time I went they said they are considering staying open later, therefore check out their website above as they might have already extended their hours.
Cool Breakfast Location
It’s on the northern part of the moat and pretty easy to find. Just search for Sira Boutique Hotel on Google Maps. Cool Breakfast located right next to it.
