Well, Seventh Son is not a vegetarian restaurant per se – in fact, they count suckling pig and braised abalones as some of their signature dishes – but they do have a few interesting meatless dishes, some on their menu in a dedicated vegetarian section and some you just have to know and asked for them off-menu like D did for our table.
had a great Pei Pa Tofu (琵琶豆腐) just a few days ago, but this version at Seventh Son was done vegetarian style with morel mushrooms. It's equally delicious and I swear I wouldn’t have noticed there’s something missing in it (traditionally the dish was made with tofu and minced fish meat mixed in). I am usually not a fan of those typical Chinese vegetarian cooking trying to mimic the meat dish, but I must say the Sweet and Sour Bear's Head Mushroom were excellent both in presentation and flavor, replacing the tender chunks of pork with the equally "meaty" Bear's Head Mushroom (or Monkey Head Mushroom 猴頭菇 as in the literal translation from its Chinese name).
