Vegan Chinese

Lao Wai is an all-vegetarian Chinese restaurant in Norrmalm. Items on the menu are marked if they are vegan and, currently, all are. Even the cappucino is made with soy milk.

The menu features Szechuan and Taiwanese dishes, with some additional inspiration from southeast Asia.

Every day there is a lunch special, which rotates in a 2-week schedule, featuring a tofu or soy protein dish with rice and stir-fried vegetables, for 80 kronor.

The dinner menu averages around 165 kronor.

The tofu and soy protein are always made from organic soy beans.

Lao Wai closes during the summer, usually from mid-summer until early August.

We loved this vegan chinese restaurant. The food was really tasty, and for us unusual as we don't often find vegan chinese food.

We followed the recommendation on the menu and had 3 main courses between 4 of us - and really enjoyed them all. We followed that with 2 of the ice-creams (unusual combinations of flavours that we found really worked), and the chocolate panacetta - and now just want to know how to make them all ourselves!

Prices were higher than we'd usually pay for a meal out, but we thought they were fine for excellent food for a treat: mains 170-200 SEK; sweets 40-65 SEK.

We were glad we booked - several people were turned away as the small restaurant was full. Several others dropped in for takeaways.

The staff were friendly and helpful, and helped make it an evening we'll remember.

This is just the VERY best and cleanest and most well managed vegetarian/vegan restaurant in Europe - GO FOR IT!
- And also bring Your friends there - one friend at a time though - it's a small and cosy place - to let them enjoy and experience it also... Here - with this superb quality of food and drink etc - it is also really easy and no hard task to convince and salvage and win people over for vegetarianism; the only way for a human(e) future!
