People choosing to eat there mainly consist of two kinds, either for health or for religion.

Vegan Steak (Tender, Juicy and Flavorful!)

When you sit down in a vegan restaurant and begin to leaf through the menu, you can still surprisingly see “meat” dishes.

Actually most of the meat are substituted by ingredients made of bean products, some others made of mushrooms.

By doing so, the dishes can have a very similar appearance, texture and flavour of the real meat to cater the taste of some non-vegans.

In addition, most of the owners of these vegan restaurants are people who believe in Buddhism.

Therefore sometimes at the entrance of the restaurant, diners can receive some Buddhist scriptures or books free of charge for the further spread of Buddhism.

Besides, you can feel the waiters and waitresses are more friendly and more polite due to the religious reason.

So, come to China and try to dine in a vegan restaurant.
