China, Christmas 2011, Vegan set menu

Christmas 2011 we were in Beijing, only 3 months into our 10 month backpacking trip, we had a lovely meal at The Veggie Table and got to see the Great Wall of China!
The Vegan Set Menu was 208Yuan, which is about £20, for China that seems a lot, but for England very cheap! It consisted of a drink, pudding and 4 savoury dishes and compared to the rice and greens I had been living off, a real treat. The Veggie Table was run by a nice American lady who I spoke with.
Egg Nog (first time to try this) and Ginger tea
Creamy green beans with crispy onion 

Cabbage and apple salad and minestrone soup

Chocolate cake with walnuts

We went back a few days later we went back for Lentil soup, more ginger tea and hot chocolate

Our favourite meal was their Mushroom burger with really good Vegan Coleslaw!

  1. Wow, I'm still so jealous of your backpacking trip around China. I can't wait to go there one day & everything in this post looks delicious.
