Wutai Vegetarian Restaurant located at 8425 Woodbine Avenue, Markham, Ontario. It is not a vegan restaurant but does have a wide selection of vegetarian dishes without any meat or meat by-products. You just need to double-check the ingredients with the waiter/waitress before ordering.
Food: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Price: $$$-$$$$ out of $$$$$ (depends what you order)
Ambience/decor: 3 out of 5 stars
My fav dish: Lotus root and glutinous rice wrapped with tofu skin (appetizer pictured top centre)
I was finally able to line up the stars and meet my gal friends for a girls’ night out. Everyone is so busy all the time, so I thought I’d be spontaneous and see if they were all free this past Friday. I never tried this restaurant before, but one of my friends ate there a number of times and suggested we meet there.
If you love hot Chinese food, but don’t love the meat, you have to try it out. Typically, Chinese vegetarian food is “mock” meat made of tofu or beancurd. This does not jive with me. So, I was delighted when I saw an extensive menu of appetizing dishes at Wutai.
If you enjoy Chinese dim sum, they have a large menu selection of vegetarian dim sum during the lunch period. Dinner is a la carte only.
I really enjoyed the food and will definitely go to satisfy my craving for Chinese dim sum – which I have probably missed the most since becoming vegan.
Worth checking out! Maybe I’ll see you there?
