Thai Top Ten is one of my family’s favorite restaurants in our area. Located in The Creeks shopping center in an unassuming strip mall across the street from Virginia Center Commons in north Henrico, they serve omni friendly fare, but they do have vegan options as well. The key here is to let your server know you are vegan. Several of their menu options can be adapted to be vegan.
My favorite dishes there? Their spicy noodle soup can be made vegan, featuring a flavorful broth and tofu, and their noodles of the drunk can as well. You can choose wide or thin noodles with this! I always choose wide rice noodles with tofu and add broccoli. On the appetizer menu, they have vegetable dumplings and veggie spring rolls that are vegan as well. Sadly, their curry dishes cannot be made vegan.
We go often enough that the staff know who we are and what our preferences are. That’s always a good thing! Plus, it’s awesome to know that you are supporting a local small business. We used to order takeout frequently during the height of the pandemic, and we are happy to be back to dining in person there.
If you are there during happy hour, try an Austin East pineapple cider! They’ve got it on tap and served in a chilled glass. I swear, it tastes better here than anywhere else.
Do you enjoy Thai food? We are lucky to have this great restaurant so close to us! As always, I hope you all are safe and healthy.
