It has been pointed out to me that my reviews of dumpling spots almost exclusively focus on the meat filled dumplings. When it comes to terrestrial animals I don’t eat beef or chicken, basically I am a Pork-aterian, so I usually review the pork and/or shrimp dumplings.
But I am going to make an effort to be more vegan and vegetarian friendly, including returning to some of the places I have reviewed and trying their veggie dumplings. This week’s review of Shanghai Garden is the first in the “return for veggies series”. At each spot I will do the best I can to find out if the dumplings are vegan or vegetarian. I have added a “vegetarian” link on the menu bar that will pull up all the reviews and recipes that are vegetarian friendly. I also plan to review Veggie Dim Sum in NYC’s Chinatown – home to a wide range of vegan dumplings.
