Travel in China (Tianjin) : 人民公园 Renmin Gongyuan and 圆满素食饭馆 Yuanman Restaurant (First Vegetarian Restaurant in Tian Jin)
Today I once again visit several public place in Tian Jin. Because I am a vegan, there is one place i always want to visit when i am in Tianjin. It’s the Vegetarian Restaurant in Tianjin. And yesterday, i use my free time to find Vegetarian restaurant in Tian Jin. Like usual, i was accompanied by my girlfriend today. Vegetarian Restaurant is rather difficult to find here. Unlike my hometown, Surabaya, there are many depots and vegetarian restaurant you can find. In Tian Jin, i’ve only found three vegetarian restaurant from the internet. The first restaurant is the one that i visited yesterday, Yuan Man Restaurant (圆满素食饭馆 Yuanman Sushi Fanguan). Yesterday i use MRT from my campus to 下挖风 Xia Wa Feng station before i continue go to the restaurant by bus. Before i go to the restaurant, I spend a little time to look arround one of Tian Jin parks named People Park (人民公园 Renmin Gongyuan).

This is the first vegetarian restaurant in Tian Jin. It written on their menu as the motto of the restaurant. First, i imagine that this restaurant would be empty of visitors. Since I found out that the people here don’t understand to much about vegetarian, so i think there were not to many vegan people here. But after entered this restaurant, i was a little shocked. There are not a few people who ate there. In my opinion, the place was not too bad. Pretty good in fact. Today I ordered three dishes, which is Western Fried Rice, Mushroom and Lamb Satay Noodle. The most delicious menu was vegetarian i ate Lamb Satay. The Satay here is more delicious than the satay in my country.
