Respond to Review of Wu Shang Vegetarian
Review: My wife and I were in Nanjing recently to adopt a girl. We were able to bring along our Chinese speaking facilitator to help us find the restaurant and to interact with the restaurant staff. We have enjoyed vegan cuisine at many of the finest restaurants in North America and Europe. We believe this restaurant is one of the most unqiue. The food is served buffet style and as you might expect leans toward an Asian theme. There were selections of dim sum, sushi, mock meats, soups, stir fries, and surprise - pizza! The restaurant offers a clever way of serving freshly sauteed greens to your table. You clip a number to a clean dinner plate and then you proceed to the buffet table to place your preferred chinese green (about 8 varieties to choose from) on the plate and hand it to one of the chefs. In a few moments, a server will return to your table with piping hot nicely seasoned greens. This is a wonderful way of minimizing waste and getting crisp fresh greens from a buffet format. By the time we finished sampling the many choices, we did not have room for dessert. We weren't sure if the desserts were vegan but they did look amazing. My recollection is that we paid $88 RMB per person which I think is worth the price of admission for one of the most unique dining experiences you will have in China or anywhere else. Highly recommended.
