1. Re: Any good vegetarian restaraunts in beijing?

I have been to two vegetarian restaurants in Beijng: Gong De Lin, not to far south of Tiananmen square on Qianmen street. It is only okay. The place has been there forever--since before private run restaurants were allowed in Beijing.

Newer is Lotus in Moonlight. There are lots of mock-meat dishes, since that is the Chinese vegetarian tradition, but I think you can find plenty of other things order. This place is pretty good (not great), the staff are very nice. 12 Liufang Nanli. Phone: 6465-3299. Both of these restaurants have English menus.

The vegetarian website Happy Cow recommends several other options in the city, including some that are not Chinese food.

You can get vegetarian food in other restaurants, especially if you eat egg. There is a tendency to cook in lard, add minced meat or little shrimp even after you have told staff you are vegetarian, so patience is required.
