Looking for great vegetarian ethnic cuisine options? Think Chinese. Chinese food has long been affected by Buddhism. In fact, there is an entire line of Chinese vegetarian dishes that have been developed over the last 2,000 years. What's even better for vegetarians in America and China alike is that many Chinese restaurants specialize in Buddhist food. There are even some restaurants that have an entirely vegetarian menu yet incorporate mock “meats” that resemble meats found in common Chinese dishes into their entrees. You can get anything from fake chicken and beef to imitation squid and lobster. The only catch is that these restaurants tend to sell their meals at a slight higher price than your everyday run-of-the-mill Chinese restaurants.
