Xiamen - Lunch with a Monk

My sister Esther goes to Xiamen frequently. A good friend of hers, who happens to be a monk, helped us get settled in Xiamen. He is a person of many talents, one of which is speaking excellant English. He also tutors non-Chinese speaking folks in Mandarin. This most gracious and generous host treated us to an exquisite vegetarian meal; a first for our family.

The following dishes are all suitable for vegetarians - made to look and taste like the original (pork, chicken, seafood etc).

She was most helpful with helping us make travel plans to Beijing, Shanghai, Suzhou, Wuzhen, and Hangzhou by calling on her contacts in those cities - what a sweetheart!
