LA Times Pays Tribute to Veg Chinese Restaurants

While kale may be king in the City of Angels, the news source recommends that readers check out the delicious faux offerings Chinese restaurants serve.

The Los Angeles Times recently paid tribute to the city’s top vegetarian Chinese restaurants including Happy Family, Vege Paradise, Bean Sprouts, and QQ Kitchen (all practice the cruelty-free lifestyle as a centuries-old cultural tradition). The news source lauded the Eastern eateries’ spot-on faux meats as “artistic endeavors in and of themselves,” noting the fake chicken’s uncanny resemblance to the real thing, and the veg-seafood’s use of seaweed to replicate scales. The LA Times reports that many vegetarian Chinese restaurants also abstain from using allium vegetables such as garlic, leek, and onions, due to a cultural tradition that may be related to ancient buddhist texts. Each restaurant on the list has unique qualities—besides the delicious food—that make for a pleasureable dining experience, such as Happy Family’s all-you-can-eat menu, Bean Sprouts’ café-style set-up, and QQ Kitchen’s family-owned appeal and affordable offerings.
