Are you looking for delicious vegan food in Taipei? Look no further. Xiu Yuan Su Shi is a small and extremely busy vegetarian restaurant. They have a huge menu in English and most mains are between NT $40-75.
The minute I read about this place on Happy Cow, I just knew I had to go. I stayed in the city for two weeks and it became my favorite place for vegan food in Taipei.
My man and I tried quite a few of their dishes and these are some of my favorites:
Traditional Taiwanese Style Sesame Noodles
If you’ve never had Sesame Noodles then these are a must. They are absolutely delicious! I had them multiple times and it’s now my favorite vegan food in Taipei. Although the bowl that they give you is of medium size it’s extremely filling.
I love Tofu and this one was no exception. It’s got a really nice flavor to eat, it’s a decent sized portion and great as a snack. If you love Tofu as much as I do then this is a must try.
Thick rice noodles with vegetarian meat sauce
Thick rice noodles are some of my favorites and although I am usually not into mock meat I figured I’ll give this one a try. It’s delicious! It doesn’t remind me of the taste of flesh at all. It’s really just rice noodles with something that’s a little crunchy and different in texture. I believe these were around NT $55.
Ribs with rice and vegetables
This is a dish that my man ordered and really enjoyed although he isn’t all that much into mock meat. I tried a little piece of it and must say it’s good. If you are into mock meat then definitely check this one out! It’s also worth noting that the portion is huge. I believe he paid about NT $75 for a full plate of this!
Green bean noodle with dumplings
If you’ve never had “wonton soup” (soup with dumplings) then Xiu Yuan Su Shi is the place to try it. It’s super filling, a decent portion and roughly NT $55.
Unsure about what to get? Try the Traditional Taiwanese Style Sesame Noodles for NT $45. I went to Xiu Yuan Su Shi multiple times and this is by far my favorite dish.
