Vegetarian friends will feel welcomed in Taiwan due to the city’s large vegetarian population and many people being temporarily vegetarian for religious or health reasons. Consequently, there is no shortage of vegetarian options.
Most noodle stands, buffets and high-end restaurants offer vegetarian choices. Even items sold in convenience store and supermarket are clearly labeled for vegetarians. In Guangu Market, 369 Vegetarian Buns serves vegetarian buns that come in even more flavors than the typical pork buns — a Taiwan breakfast favorite. VEGE CREEK offers a wide variety of vegetarian lu wei (food braised in an aromatic soy sauce brine). For those fond of Japanese and Korean flavors, Macrobiotics offers wonderful vegetarian options. If you want to sample a variety of vegetarian dishes, visit Fruitful Food, a vegetarian buffet. For vegans, Ooh Cha Cha and Plants are highly recommended as they serve entirely plant-based diets.
