Yang Shin Vegetarian Restaurant 養心茶樓蔬食飲茶: A Cantonese Vegetarian Feast
My vegetarian adventures continue. After trying potato hamburgers, tofu sashimi, and peperoni-less peperoni pizza, it’s time to see what Hong Kong has to offer. Yang Shin Vegetarian Restaurant 養心茶樓蔬食飲茶 in Taipei is an all-vegetarian Cantonese restaurant with a large selection. There’s almost too much to choose from, but certain dishes turned out to be a highlight. Check out some pictures and info after the jump.
They’re advertised as a dim sum restaurant, but there’s many other types of food to try and the portions are surprisingly big. Large entrees average about 300NT, but there are also smaller and more affordable choices. They are notable for several dishes, including their shredded turnip cake. There are a lot of mushroom-based dishes, which in my opinion is the best faux meat. If you go here, I highly suggest bringing a lot of people so you can try as much as possible, and there are several interesting options that are only available for larger parties. Here are some pictures from my visit.
I highly recommend this restaurant if you don’t mind spending 300NT+ per person. I can certainly see myself going back here in the future and trying something new.
Take the MRT to Songjiang Nanjing Station, and exit from Exit 8. Turn left, and it is literally the building next to the exit. Yang Shin is on the second floor above the Nozomi Bakery.
