If there’s one cuisine that doesn’t intimidate a foodie looking for veggie-centric dishes, it’s Chinese. With plenty of fried rice, noodles, and steamed vegetable dishes, it’s actually pretty easy to find something to nosh at a Chinese eatery. That being said, if you are avoiding meat, there are definitely some drawbacks to choosing the restaurant scene as your medium for enjoying Chinese food. Not only do you have to gloss over half of the menu, avoiding some of the most popular items, but if not careful, you may just find yourself with some egg in your dish or some fish sauce drizzled over your entrée.
