Nengren Vegetarian Restaurant

Nengren Vegetarian RestaurantIn the city there are not many options for vegetarians. However, we have found the Nengren Vegetarian Restaurant(能仁素食餐馆) located in the Nengren temple area.

Dumplings, also called Jiaozi in Chinese, are especially popular at Nengren. The restaurant offers all dishes made with mock meat and with authentic flavors. Most dishes are very tasty. The negative side is that the menu is only in Chinese and most staff cannot speak English. However, do not be deterred by this, as the menu has pictures of each of the dishes, where you can just point and order! The service is good and fast, and you will not be let down with the flavorsome taste of the food.
