4 Stones Vegetarian Cuisine
Taiwanese vegetarian cuisine is rooted in the Buddhist tradition.
Taiwanese vegetarian cuisine is rooted in the Buddhist tradition. A Buddhist belief also states that five pungent vegetables – such as onion and garlic – are impure and cloud the mind, so 4 Stones Vegetarian Cuisine does not use such ingredients in their kitchen. As vegetarian cuisine evolves, this restaurant created their own Vegan/Plant-based Meat made from soy protein, gluten, psyllium husk, tapioca starch, and without artificial flavourings or preservatives. Their Classic Vegetarian Taiwanese Bao is perfect for its tender texture. Alluding to traditional Taiwanese dishes, 4 Stones’ Tomato & Vegetarian Beef Brisket Noodle Soup and Kong Pao Spicy Vegetarian Chicken Bento Combo are delicately prepared comfort food that warms the body and soul. Some people choose to be vegetarian for comfort, while others do so to maintain a healthy diet. The old Chinese saying goes, “Herbal medicine and food are of the same origin, so one can be treated with food.” That’s why a wholesome vegetarian dish is the key to a healthier lifestyle. 4 Stones’ Vegetarian Health Pot combines a handful of Chinese herbs such as gogi berries, Chinese dates and dang guai root with bok choy, cabbage, fresh mushrooms, and tofu in a light and refreshing broth featuring two options: Mountain Yam or Ginseng. With 30 years of experience in Taiwan and Richmond, 4 Stones is the go-to spot for elevated vegetarian cuisine.
