What should a vegetarian order at a Chinese restaurant?

I’m a vegetarian and I’m going to a Chinese restaurant tonight with some friends. It seems like most Chinese dishes have some sort of meat in them. Can any other vegetarians recommend something to eat at a Chinese restaurant?

    The sizzling broccoli with cashews. Unfortunately it will be fried in oil that previously fried meat. Like cat and such.

    spring rolls are a nice starter, then get whatever vegetarian noodles or rice they have on their menu that appeals to you most

    I don’t eat a lot of meat so when I go to a chinese restaurant I just order whatever I want – meatless! I like spicy sauces so I just ask for a large variety of vegetables in a nice and spicy sauce (such as Kung Pao). Works every time!

    It has been my experience that most Chinese restaurants will substitute tofu for the meat if you ask them to. I’d call ahead of time to find out what their policy is on that.

    I usually have a vegetable egg roll; steamed veggies and steamed rice. They usually bring carrots, broccoli, snow peas, bean sprouts, and zucchini or yellow squash.

    Ask for vegetarian options – they do have some with flavorful sauces.

    Chinese Vegetables has no meat and the veggies are awesome. Lo Mein comes without meat, fried rice, Chow Mein & egg rolls. Enjoy!!

    I only eat white rice and veggie fried rice when I go. It’s take out. My mom brings in a gluten-free soy sauce for the fried rice so I can eat it. And there are usually vegetarian options on the menu.

    More often than not, Chinese menus have a vegetarian or vegetables section..so fear not!!

    I would opt for a vegetable dish (something like mushrooms and bamboo shoots, celery and cashews, mixed vegetables, aubergine in black bean sauce), some fried rice or plain noodles and maybe some deep fried seaweed or spring rolls.

    If you see something you fancy that has meat included on the dish, then ask the waiter/waitress if they can exclude that item from the dish..it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Have a lovely meal!!

    Sadly, there aren’t a lot of vegetarian Chinese dishes, but there are soups that are. One of the top of my head is the sizzling rice soup with tomato broth, you can’t go wrong there.

    Most chinese places have a veggie menu. If they don’t, just ask the server what their options are. I have had to do that many times. Most of the time they have a tofu dish on their menus, but if not, they are usually willing to make something for you, or change a sauce on a dish to suit your diet.
