Vegan and vegetarian dining in China 中国

All restaurants will have dishes to cater for vegans and vegetarians but to be certain there's no trace of meat or meat oil or egg in your food, head to a specialized vegetarian restaurant. There are quite a few in all major cities but you'll need to look them up on the net. Some of these are run by devotees, some exist to cater to Buddhist people. Some have 'meat substitutes', such as vegetable based chicken, duck, prawns, etc., made from things like bean curd and mushroom, and are remarkably good. In these films, Nadine shows us some of what you can eat in BeiJing ... Hot tip : A great dish you can get at many restaurants is Di San Xian 地三鮮 (literally, '3 things from the earth') - stir fried potato, aubergine (egg-plant) and green pepper. Mildly spicy, filling, comforting and delicious; a great choice for anyone. Bonus film - a wander through BeiJing and a trip to the Great Wall of China (GuBeiKou and SiMaTai) ... Plus, some vegetarian Chinese recipes ...

Xi'An 西安 Bites - Street Food 小吃 and Hot Pot 火锅

ShaanXi province. Street food, Xiǎo Chī (small eats), 火锅 in the Muslim Quarter ... From film-maker Kevin Cook : For Xi'an, the old Silk Road trade route opened the doors to the culinary influence of other cultures, particularly Muslim culture, which is especially evident in the Muslim Quarter in the center of the city. This massive outdoor marketplace of roads and alleyways contains some of the most tasty, unique and interesting street foods in all of China. Shaanxi Sandwich 牛肉夹馍 (Niúròu jiā mó) - 8 RMB The first street food that I eat in this video is Nui Rou Jia Mo (beef sandwhich). Due to its origins in the Shaanxi Province, it’s often called the “Shaanxi Sandwich.” Mutton soup with bread 泡馍 (Pào mó) - 38 RMB This one isn't so much a street food as it is a full meal in a bowl. Pao mua is mutton soup with bread, and it requires a little bit of work to prepare. It's one of the hardiest dishes you can eat in Xi’an, and it’s absolutely amazing. For 38 Yuan, it’s more expensive than most dishes you’ll find around here, but it’s worth it. Street Yoghurt 酸奶 (Suānnǎi) - 8 RMB Sua nai, which literally means “sour milk,” is a sweet yoghurt drink sold in little white cups, and it’s especially satisfying on a hot day like today. Beef jerky 牛肉干 (Niúròu gān) Price varies per kilo Niu roy gan, or dried beef, is another delicious street snack available in all parts of the Muslim market place. Unlike similar looking beef jerky in the west, the variety that I bought in Xi'an has a much more distinct meaty flavor than any other beef jerky I’ve ever eaten. Bread 楠 (Nán) - 5 RMB Hailing originally from the XinJiang Province is a hardy flat bread that's sold all over Xi’an. The Uyghur people who bake this bread call it 'nan,' but Han Chinese call it 'nang.' Skewered mutton 羊肉串 (Yángròu chuàn) 10 RMB/2 skewers Thanks to vendors like the one in this video, the tempting aroma of juicy grilled meat permeates the entire marketplace. This snack is dripping with fat and seasoned to perfection, making this a rich, hardy Xi'an street snack. Peanut Candy 花生糖 (Huāshēng táng) - 20 RMB/box A few varieties of this sweet snack are available, and each requires an interesting method of preparation, such as pounding the candy with a mallet and stretching it out over a hook. The process of making this delicious street treat is even more fun to watch than it is to eat. The beautiful Xi'An Expo park and Hot Pot, huǒ guō, 火锅 ... Bonus film - hand-pulled noodles From the Food Ranger, Trevor James : Hand pulled noodles are found everywhere in China. These hand pulled noodles were so delicious, simply some of the best Chinese food you can have in all of China. They are featured in LanZhou LaMian restaurants everywhere. Lanzhou LaMian AKA LanZhou hand pulled noodles are everywhere, and each restaurant has a very similar menu. These restaurants are usually very good for foreigners in China because they often have a huge picture menu all over the walls, so you can just point at what you think looks good. In this video, me and my local friend try two very amazing dishes : the DaPanJi, also known as the XinJiang big plate of beef, and then my other favorite noodle dish, the lamb and cumin on top of hand pulled noodles. These two dishes combined made a massive meal for two people. So if you're a foreigner living in China or if you're just traveling in China for a short time, visiting a LanZhou hand pulled noodles restaurant is a MUST!
