A substitute

We did not visit their store but came across their products at a vegan rally happening in Union Sq. They gave us free bags to take away and try- we had basil chick'n and orange chick'n.
They were alright and went well as part of a stiry-fry type meal, the orange was a bit too much for me- a bit sickly.

I know we also got a bag of 'ready to eat' pieces or jerky to snack on- I wasn't a fan of these I'm afraid, but they may be great for other who like jerky type foods!

Been a customer of May Wah for years, they have a large selection of imported mock meats. Most are frozen and travel well. Many of the stuff they carry is no vegan, but it is clearly labeled and the staff is very helpful. If you have eaten any mock meat dishes in NYC or beyond there is a good chance they came from May Way

Pros: Large Selection, Friendly, Knowledgable staff
Cons: Lots of non-vegan items, Parking tough in area

The four large bags of veggie meat we got ($155.00) turned out to be high in an oily fat. The Vege Pepper Steak has 735 mg of sodium per piece (3" x 2" or 165 grams/5.75 oz). They state it as 245 mg per 1/3 piece. Rarely does one find a USA made veggie tv dinner (10+/- oz) or a burger with so much sodium. Having bought low-sodium, dried soy protein chunks, we know that sodium isn't high in the plant. Although, food processors often claim it is. There is 11 grams of protein in a piece. The label does not state that oil is added, which we believe to be a labeling law violation. We found the only way to lower the fat was to boil the mock meat and pour off what oil we could. There will always be more oil left in them. Mah Wah's veggie meats are unlike the texturized soy protein made in America. There is much more of a fiberous texture. Often the meats look like tofu skin was compressed into a shape.

Great stuff, great variety

Everyone knows MayWah rules. We used to order huges boxes to be shipped to Boston. Now I buy stuff when they come up for the BVS Food Festival, or stop in when I am in NYC.

The fake meat is so good, some restaurants use it. The Citrus Spareribs will blow you away. Same with the Salted Chik'n, Gong Bao, etc. Buy the "veg meat steaks" and cut them up for stir-fry or do absolutely anything that you would do with a piece of boneless chicken with them. My favorite thing (and really a bargain) is the giant "tube" of "smoked ham, chicken flavor." I cut it into cubes for the most incredible vegan Chicken pot pie or chicken salad.
They do not claim to be health food, but I think most of the stuff, while maybe a little high in fat, is pretty healthy. The website is much clearer than it used to be in terms of what is vegan and what isn't. And if you go to the store, Lily or one of the guys will help you out!

Pros: Variety, Prices, Helpful staff
Cons: Shipping, if you aren't in NY

There is lot's of chinese vegetarian food here at a reasonable price. But a check of the ingrediants will show that most of the food is laden with chemicals and not particularly healthy.

Pros: Nice variety, much here tastes good, good price
Cons: Not healthy
