Our colleague got invited to a diplomatic reception, so we took the Metro down to West Lake. About 5:30, we figured we could eat. I had just noticed Grandma’s Restaurant as we walked by and was amazed to see it was rated #7 AND was vegetarian friendly! We had to go and boy was it wonderful!
Arrive before 6 PM on a weekday. There was no line at all. By 6, the courtyard was packed with people in line!
The menu is in Chinese only and you check what you want on the menu, but thanks to Google Translate, we ordered 8 dishes of vegetables. The servers made sure there was no meat. All the dishes were great, but stinky tofu is an acquired taste (it took me a decade to try it). The green beans and eggplant were both great, but the cauliflower was the BEST cauliflower of my life! It was THAT good!! All for RMB129! Service was great, too. The server recognized chicken in one of the dishes and replaced it without us asking.
What a wonderful thing to find a place like this with a mobile device.
