In JP; 台湾素食の店に行った。精進料理みたいに味・見た目がストイックな感じがないところが◎。

    Yes but how did it taste?

    Sweet and sour pork was really great! This restaurant chef imitated pork taste well by using only vegetables (mainly soy). You must be surprised after eating vegetable sweet and sour pork.

    Not really at all surprised at this sort of food. I spend some of my formative years travelling through Asia and lived in the Philippines during this time for a few years and am familiar with the fake meat made of soy/mushrooms/gluten/various binders concept. I just wanted to know if I ever get back to Japan if this place is worth a try. Some places make it tasty others somehow don't get the texture and/or flavor quite right. I would suspect a Buddhist temple in the area of origin would be the best place to have this food but with my studies and trying to get preggers I don't know when I'll next have a chance to get over that way? Getting to Japan is easier as my husband goes for business fairly often and it is a straight flight to Tokyo.

    For the record there are several places in the San Francisco Bay Area (western USA) that serve various types of 'faux-meat' as we have a large population of Asians, Buddhists, and various other veggies/vegans in our area - though in the middle of the USA I doubt you'd find this cuisine as there are less Asians, part-Asians (like myself) and/or white Buddhists/Hindus or hippy vegans which would be the main target publics for such food in the USA.
