Good little buddhist canteen

Posted on 03 / 14 / 2015

Small local place with a pretty decent variety of vegetables, tofu, and mushroom dishes. They also have tasty soups, in particular the pumpkin soup that I really liked.
You can get as much vegan food as you want for only 13RMB as long as you finish your food! Don't waste the food here, it is a buddhist restaurant.
I have been to lots of restaurants in Guangzhou and I argue this one might be the best value for money that I found.
I also appreciated the fact that dishes are not too oily as compared to many other small local restaurants.
I recommend this restaurant for people who are trying to avoid gluten, as long as you stay away from the baked buns.
I wish they had raw foods, but it is China.

Pros: Value for money, Great food, You'll be full
Cons: nothing raw

Great Little Local Place

Posted on 02 / 25 / 2015

Vegan food at this price one wouldn't be surprised if it tasted terrible, but it's actually really good, and they've got a good selection too. As usual in China it's a bit oily The green beans tasted a bit buttery but I've been staying away from oil so often that it may very well be that it was just similar tasting. It's about a five minute bus ride from Haizhu Square metro station on bus 10, 3 stops. Right in from of a temple.

Pros: Cost, Tasty, Selection
Cons: Distance

Off The Beaten Track, GZ-style.

Posted on 12 / 01 / 2013

Hong Shan Su Shi is a worthy addition to anyone's list of potential destinations for meat- and dairy- free dining in GZ. A little off the beaten track - it will require (gasp!) a 10-15 minute walk from the nearest MTR or bus stop - and resembling the other local eateries along this section of South Road, the potential is there for the first-time visitor to miss it. However, the unassuming appearance belies the wholesomeness of the food therein, which is served buffet-style in the main dining area (as this space is not too large, we were obliged by the host who set up extra tables for our group on the street outside). The food is a familiar assortment of vegetable, tofu/beancurd, and mushroom dishes with both rice and noodles available to accompany. As it is self-service, you can pile on as much as required, and it seems acceptable to go for seconds (one would assume, however, that leaving food uneaten on your plate is a faux pas). The price is cheap, even by local Chinese eaterie prices, so if you are feeling flush you can 'gift' a meal to low-income and old diners when you pay.

Pros: Great food, Friendly staff, Gift scheme
