Plants of Roselyn Plant-Based Thai Menu
Starters include Smoked Sweetcorn Croquettes; these are handmade sweetcorn patties with kaffir lime leaves, sundried lemongrass and smoked chillies. It comes with a little pot of homemade apple jam. My partner and I often chose sweetcorn cakes as a starter, and these are excellent.
On our second visit to the restaurant, we tried the Green Garden Spring Rolls filled with glass noodles, carrots and wood ear mushrooms. Dunk them into the sweet chilli dip and bite through the green crispy outer to savour the delicate filling. Other starters include Peranakan Tom Yum Soup, Cauliflower Congee Soup and Plantish Mushroom Skewers.
We enjoyed Lui’s Cambodian Khmer Curry. It’s an ancient curry recipe from the Khmer scriptures elevated with smoked aubergines, paprika chickpeas, and heirloom beans in a creamy coconut milk base. It was outstanding paired with Coconut Rice.
On our second visit, we tried the Thai Lentil Katsu Curry. It comprised of harvest vegetables, lentils, sweet potatoes and onions in a smokey turmeric curry broth. Although it was tasty, the Cambodian Khmer Curry was our favourite. I didn’t notice any lentils in the dish, so I wondered why it had the word Lentil in the name. Anyway, I ate it all, so that’s the main thing! The two other curries are Lampang Green and Hummingbird Tofu.
If you don’t fancy Curry, try a Rice Bowl, such as Romanesco Fried Rice or Aubergine Gra Pow. They also serve Noodles, and Pasta options like Ghaopraya Courgette Paid Thai, Phuket Coconut Noodle Soup and Kathmandu Ginger Noodles.
We added the Princess of Ayutthaya Radicchio Salad which was a bit like a Som Tom in a radicchio leaf. It was super spicy, which some may like, but I needed to gulp down my Thai Ice Drink to dampen the heat. The other option is Shrine Swede Salad with local swedes, carrots, green beans and mixed bright heritage cherry tomatoes.
Starters cost £6-8, Curry is £11-12, Rice Bowls are £10-13, Noodles and Pasta are £12.5-14, and Salads/Sides range from £3-8. I thought the prices were reasonable because they didn’t skimp on the vegetables in the curries and other dishes. Dinks include Cocktails, Sparkling, White and Red Wines and Singha Beer. Try a Plant Drink such as Thai Oat Tea, Orange and Lemongrass Iced Tea or Thai Iced Coffee.
