Vegetarian Food?
« on: August 26, 2008, 04:53:56 pm »

I will be visiting Hefei at the beginning of October for ten days or so.  I am a vegetarian, and wish not to eat food made with any animal/fish products, oils, etc.
Is this possible in China beyond eating steamed vegetables and tofu?

I find that a lot of the oils they use is peanut-based, so if that's the case, you are in the clear.  But to make sure, ask the server before ordering.  Some might add in animal fat for taste, but again, hopefully by you asking them to omit it, that they will comply.

For me, I have some allergies to different foods.  So when my wife and I go out to eat, we usually have a good dialogue about this with the server, and 9 times out of 10 they do a good job.

you mean you eat no animal products, also no milk or eggs? r u vegan?
If you're just a regular vegetarian I think you should have no problem. If you don't speak Chinese go to Hilton or Holiday Inn... Hilton has a new Indian Kitchen which serves quite a few veggie dishes (I think).
Otherwise I have no place to recommendi. In Shanghai, however, there is the excellent Godly (gong de ling - or something like that).

The best vegetarian food I have ever eaten is the one I do by myself...

You don’t need to worry about finding vegan restaurants in China. Due to Buddhist teaching and yoga practices there are large number of vegetarians in China. More and more Chinese people are trend to eat vegan foods to keep health and fitness.

You can easily find vegan restaurants in any city. I will list few places to try.
-   Tian Chu Miao Xiang(First Floor, Chuangye Plaza, Tsinghua Science Park, East Gate of Tsinghua University)
-   Gong De Lin(158 Qianmen Street)
-   Lily Vegetarian(www.ertong.org)
-   Still Thoughts( HaiDian District)

-   Miaode Vegetarian Restaurant(Jing'an Temple, 1686 Nanjing Xilu)
-   Jing'an Temple Vegan Noodle Restaurant(Jing'an Temple, 1686 Nanjing Xilu)
-   Juelin Vegetarian Restaurant(250 Jinling Donglu)

How does a vegetarian Pizza sound?

Connections Cafebarbq makes a herbivore pizza, no meats.

If you want the vegan pizza with no dairy by products, ask and it shall be made with strict adherence to no meat or dairy products. although I think it's is a bit bland if you don't want cheese but I guess you like it that way.

Although I am trying to source a steady supply of vegan suitable cheese for pizza.
