Chinese with labeled vegan options and unusual items like tempeh

Little Shanghai Restaurant is located in the heart of downtown Santa Cruz, right off the bustling Pacific Avenue.

They offer a large selection of veg-friendly dishes including tofu and tempeh dishes. All of the items in the "Tofu and Vegetables" section of the menu are vegan, as well as some of their appetizers and other dishes.

Best Chinese food ever! I go there every chance I have. They offer a very inexpensive cafeteria style lunch and full table service for dinner. While little Shanghai is not a fully vegan or even vegetarian restaurant, they do offer almost 20 different veggie dishes that are clearly marked as vegan on the menu. The Gan Sao Tempeh is frickin amazing and is like nothing else I have ever had. Go and check it out, vegan, vegetarian, or not you will not be disappointed!
