Do you think Guangzhou is a friendly city to vegetarians? Some foreign friends told us that many restaurants in the city don't quite understand vegetarianism, as they often serve vegetable dishes sprinkled with smashed pork or ham and make soup with chicken or beef stock. This often happens even when the customer specifically asks to exclude any sort of meat from dishes.
It may be the case in a number of restaurants, but it is no denying that there are many ways to cook vegetables in China, and it seldom gets boring. Here we will introduce to you some of the best vegetarian restaurants in Guangzhou.
