One of the joys of eating in Taiwan are all te deviations from our American favorites. Take for example tonights dinner. Lilly's family took us out to a buffet. This however wasn't any Golden Coral or old Country Buffet. Instead it is a massive all vegetarian buffet. As you can see above it was packed and popular.
They make all sorts of riffs on meat dishes but made entirely out of vegetables.
This is a traditional Taiwanese meat soup called "Buddah Jumped Over the Wall" but made with all fake meats.
You can see the vegetarian sashimi being put on the plate. It looked increadibly real but tasted kinda like jello.
We had a great time and no animals were hurt in the making of this post.
