Giggling Squid says that while it is launching the dishes during Veganuary, they will be permanent additions to its menu


Thai restaurant chain Giggling Squid has expanded its vegan menu with a range of vegan recipes just in time for Veganuary.

The new options, which are permanent additions to the eatery’s offering, are aimed at meat-eating flexitarians as well as vegans.

According to the chain, which has outlets in cities including London, Leicester, Bath and Cambridge among others, its new dishes have been prepared by its expert Thai chefs.

It says they are ‘perfect for enjoying solo, or sharing with loved ones… with something to suit every palate, whatever the occasion’.

The new dishes include vegan starters, mains and sides, as well as dedicated kids’ options.

Giggling Squid’s new vegan starters include its Isaan sharing platter, which boasts spring rolls, alongside brand new Thai Spice Rice Balls, a Bamboo & Goldenberry Salad plus Tamarind Mushrooms & Greens.

Its new mains include Vegetable Paneang, Vegetable Chilli & Basil Gra Pao, and Pad Paak Bong Noodles – fine rice noodles with crushed garlic, stir fried morning glory and soy beans.

Another new dish is the Tamarind Mushrooms & Greens, which sees the veggies tossed in a sweet and tangy tamarind sauce, with sesame seeds, and crispy tofu pieces.

There are also limited edition Veganuary bundles on offer this month for anyone interested in enjoying Giggling Squid from the comfort of their own homes. The Veganuary bundles offer diners a combination of starter and main dishes, available for one (from £19.95) or two people (from £39.95).

Click & Collect or delivery for the bundles will be available until 31st January.

In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Giggling Squid Co-founder, Andy Laurillard, said: “Thailand is known for its bold flavours, unique spices and exotic ingredients, so we believe vegan doesn’t have to mean boring! 

“We can’t wait to welcome guests to our restaurants this year to enjoy our extensive new range of vegan dishes and discover their own personal favourites.”
