289 JianGuo Rd, Xindian District, New Taipei City, Taiwan,

新店市的慈濟醫院地下美食街, at 台北縣新店市建國路289號, is more like a palace than a hospital, run by the Buddhist organization TzuChi. Classy and graced with an all-vegetarian food court in the basement, possibly biggest in Asia. Xindian Line MRT to DaPingLin station. Call for hours - tell us.

First Review by JesseD

Great Hospital, but Little for Vegans - Edit

The idea of a vegetarian hospital is fantastic, and I always come here for my health checks and dental work. Where else will you find an all-vegetarian starbucks? The hospital is modern and clean, and I find all staff, including the many volunteers, to be very friendly and helpful, and welcoming to foreigners who don't speak English. The only problem is that, while the charitable work done by Tzu Chi is amazing, they just don't seem to have extended their compassion to dairy cows (yet), and very little of the food in the foodcourt is vegan. And if you don't speak Chinese it's very difficult to communicate that you don't want dairy products (such as in fake meat) so the only option is to go to the Minder Buffet and take the vegetable dishes. If you'd prefer not to dine in a hospital then I recommend going to the nearby branch (about ten minutes walk) for much the same food in a nicer setting.

Pros: vegetarian foodcourt in a hospital!, great hospital for health checks etc

Cons: very little vegan food available
