SIlakan Mencobaaa~~~ :afro:
1) Godly Vegetarian 功德林
Gong De Lin, or Godly Vegetarian, takes the prize for oldest vegan restaurant in Shanghai, having served up Chinese vegan cuisine since 1922. Their Nanjing Road restaurant, close to People’s Square, is a quaint, classically decorated vegan Mecca that’s normally packed with hungry diners. Along with a huge variety of traditional vegetable dishes their Chinglish-laden menu features a large number of tofu and bean curd based mock meat dishes as well. Vegans who have had to avoid the dessert menu at other restaurants, will be happy to learn that they also have vegan cookies and desserts available. It’s a pleasant setting, and the food is inexpensive but it has unfortunately started to gain a reputation for being inconsistent in quality. However, on a good day it’s cheap and cheerful.

2) Vegetarian Life Style (Jujube Tree) 枣子树
This chain restaurant has three locations in Shanghai and is one of the better-known Chinese vegan establishments around town. They do mock meats well, their portion sizes are generous and they have a great selection of fresh juices too. Some of their fare is a bit on the oily side so, depending on what you order, it may not be the healthiest meal you’ll ever have. They do balance this by having a no-smoking and no-drinking policy. However, it is good value and they have a wide range of dishes to choose from – their dumplings alone are worth the trip.

3) Loving Hut
The Shanghai branch of this international vegan Chinese restaurant chain opened last year and it has quickly become a big hit. It’s not the largest establishment and Loving Hut have focused their attention on the student population with their Shanghai branch not exactly conveniently located in Yangpu District, close to Fudan and Tongji Universities.

4) Lucky Zen 吉祥草
Close to Xintiandi, Lucky Zen serves up healthy Chinese vegan cuisine in a chilled out, non-smoking environment. They have an extensive menu full of delicious, non-greasy dishes that won’t break the bank. This, coupled with friendly service that matches the relaxed atmosphere, has made Lucky Zen a popular destination with vegans and meat-eaters alike. They also have a store area that serves tea and sells vegan snacks, books and a random assortment of antiques as well.
Its reputation is clearly starting to precede it, so it’s worth booking a table if you’re going for dinner at the weekend. Be aware that although the restaurant is open, they don’t serve food from 14.00-17.00. They are happy for you to sit around sipping tea while you wait though. Very Zen.
