Still Thoughts Vegetarian, Beijing
Tel: 86 10 6400 8941
Concierge.com's insider take:
Owned by Buddhists, this brightly lit, sparklingly clean restaurant serves flavorful dishes, all made without meat, onions, garlic, or leeks (the last three are considered stimulants in Buddhist culture, and not very conducive to "still thoughts"). Mock meats like shredded "pork" in a rich, savory sauce, Beijing roast "duck," tangy lemon "chicken," are especially delicious—and guilt-free.
