China was a major center of Buddhism and the founding state of Taoism, two nature-oriented philosophies that promote vegetarianism and low-impact living. Most Chinese vegetarians are Buddhists, following the Buddhist teachings about minimizing suffering. In addition, many Yoga enthusiasts in China are vegetarians or vegans. Nowadays, in order to keep healthy and fit, more and more Chinese people who are not vegetarians or vegans, tend to eat vegetarian food from time to time. Therefore, vegetarian food is common and readily available in China, though vegetarianism is only practiced by a relatively small fraction of the population. Some Chinese people also choose to stop eating meat when they learn that animals suffer for its production.
Last week, I went on a 3 days tour in Veg style, although I love meat, I totally enjoied the experience and found some amazing restaurants, following is a list of the good ones:
Lucky Zen & Veg Restaurant – home style, very good taste.
Dashu Wujie Vegetarian – high end, beautiful concept and great food.
Kush Vegetarian café – organic, fresh and the best veg burger in town
