40 W 42nd Ave, San Mateo, California, USA, 94403

Serves meat, vegan options available. Chinese food in a quiet, traditional atmosphere with rounded booths. Regular menu is meat stuff but reported having separate vegetarian menu with different flavors of mock meat dishes. Reported closed, Mar 2018.

39 item vegetarian menu - Edit

A lot of the offerings are vegan, but you have to ask by specifically confirming "no egg" (my very nice waitress was not familiar with the term "vegan" but was very helpful in answering questions and making recommendations). Loved the veg eggplant in garlic sauce. Veg won ton soup was also nice. Can't wait to try more items! (^_^)

Pros: Separate menu with 39 vegetarian or vegan items.

Great Veggie Hot and Sour soup, along with.... - Edit

Wow, vegetarian hot and sour soup, egg rolls, and Mu shu. They were all so good I had to ask for boxes to prevent over eating.

Everyone was friendly, the wait staff was so coordinated that it seemed like they were reading my mind. So glad, I finely got to try Uncle Chen's.

Pros: Great food, Large selection of veggie dishs, Friendly

Cons: "hidden" outside of downtown San Mateo

Disappointing. - Edit

Waiter didn't seem entirely sure of what dishes had egg in them. Had a "beef" dish that was just okay.

Pros: nice staff

Cons: vegan options not labeled, egg used in veggie dishes
