We spend one month travelling in china, in possibly the coldest months December/January.
China is portrayed as the worst country for vegetarian.
We travelled without a guide book and used Happy Cows website to scout for vegetarian restaurant.

Yes, there were a few hungry nights, and our appetites shrunk, but we ate some really tasty food too.
Vegetarianism is a strange concept for most chinese people, and sadly of lot of chinese bread is sweet and conains eggs, and meat oil isnt always excluded from vegetable dishes.

Veganism isnt common either, but I met a lovely family of vegans in Kunming.

My favorite foods were Morning glory fried with garlic, spicy fried Tofu, and they cook good Aubergine.
