10 Veg Places in Taipei You Have to Go

I’ve introduced many vegan eateries in Taipei, but since there’re hundreds of them just on Happy Cow, there seems to be no end to it. Today, let’s take a look at 10 of my favorite places.

Vege Creek (vegan)

Vege Creek is a place for vegan Taiwanese braised dishes. All the green veggies are placed on the wall, and customers can take a basket to put them in. There’re seaweed cakes, eggplants, carrots, tofu, bean curds, pumpkins, rice noodles, etc. This place is a bit pricy compared to other similar places, but the good quality makes it worth.

It’s noteworthy that all the plastic-looking packaging at Vege Creek is actually made of cornstarch, and 90% will be degraded in 12 weeks with the remaining 10% as organic fertilizer. Healthy, delicious, and environmentally-friendly.
