Tofu – London

One of the best and cheapest ways in London to eat much and pay little is to go to an All you can eat buffet !!
For me as a dancer, Yogi and workout addict it’s super important to get these calories back, I’m sweating out day by day ๐Ÿ˜‰
In London you’ll find many of this places. One I can recommend is the all vegan Tai Chinese fresh veg style restaurant Tofu !!
Lunch buffet is from 12 till 5pm and costs only ยฃ5.90 !! You can also take a box for take away which is even cheaper!
They have veg chow mein, veg curry rice, crispy soya duck, sweet & sour veg chicken, spiced aubergines, Spring rolls, dim sum and so much that it’s getting hard to try everything! I did it by the way ๐Ÿ˜‰
In my meat eating times which feels like ages away, I was a big fan of Chinese food, so I’m happy to find places where I still can enjoy it, but in a healthier way for animals, nature and of course myself!

Find this place in Shepherds Bush,
86 Uxbridge Road, London

Tiengarden New York

A small vegan Chinese Restaurant in Chinatown Lower Manhattan.
They offer typical Chinese dishes with soy slices, tofu or veggi ham. But you can also create your own dish with different ingredients from the menu! You also can choose between rice, brown rice noodles, udon noodles, buckwheat noodles and for sure sibs things more which I forgot ๐Ÿ˜‰
I choose the lunch menu because I was too hungry to decide what I could put into my own dish!
They have many gluten free choices and you can add to everything also super healthy superfoods!
It’s so far the healthiest Chinese I ate! You can get also fresh squeezed juices, gluten free dessert and cookies
Great place! Check it out if you are in the near! Also all to take away!
Find it in 170 Allen St, New York

Jai – China Town

London’s china town is great! I love the atmosphere with all the buildings in Chinese stile. But the best: I found 2 vegan restaurants there! Finally I can eat all Chinese dishes again!!
Jai is one of them! There is a big buffet for having lunch or dinner there, but you can even pack a box by your self for take away. Take away is between 3 and 5 pounds and eating there between 6 and 8 pounds.
A really good place to eat!! Yummy food!
It’s located in 33 Old Campton Street, near to Piccadilly Circus

Barrio Chino Havana

Barrio Chino, Havanas China Town, offers the cubanic version of chinese food. I thought of many vegan options to eat there, but as it seemed i landed up in the worst of all chinese restaurants there… at least I think so! After telling thousand times that I eat no meat, I got as a starter springrolls with… meat inside!! The waitress was not really sorry for that but at least assured me that the rest what was to come really is vegan. Actually it was, but also it was… let’s say…ok but definatly not one of my tastiest dishes I had! But when the spring rolls were later even listed in the bill, fun was over ๐Ÿ˜‰ At the end we didn’t pay for it of course, but my big advice: ask hundred times if really all is vegan/vegetarian even if you look like the most nerving tourist ever! Because one thing is sure, biting in something filled with meat for a vegan is really not funny!! I don’t know how the other restaurants of Havanas China Town are, but after I left the one I had dinner in, I realised that all looked much more nicer! It’s a try worth and it’s also cheap, but be careful what you order ๐Ÿ˜‰
