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.
