Typical Fare / Meatless Relief

Posted on 07 / 09 / 2014

Directions Addendum: Inside the gate there is a line of small shops and restaurants on your left, Yuanqi is right at the end and upstairs.

The menu here consists of standard Chinese vegetarian options and flavours. The prices are reasonable, the menu has English, and the restaurant is nice and clean. Most importantly, the menu is completely vegan. In China this is very comforting - not having to worry about misunderstandings or the usual amounts of meat in every kitchen and menu.

another little Buddhist spot

Posted on 07 / 19 / 2012

Finally got a chance to go here. The taste is very simple and focuses very much on fake meat- I really don't like this kind of thing. Anyway, regardless, it is really a gift to have this place in this city where the cuisine is so meat-heavy. Take note that the area surrounding here is FULL of lots of kebab stands and what-not, so if you are in this area, try to avoid that and head for the Buddhist ambience of this place. Thankfully vegetarian kitchens in China are so much cleaner than others and I noticed the (thankful) absence of smoking here. Not the best, but happy that this place is here! Please note: there is also a cute little spot here that sells the usual selection of fake meats and different kinds of seasonings. I will try to get a card, address and info and add soon!

Pros: smoke-free! , affordable , clean
Cons: more of the same , overly simple flavor , could make this yourself!
