If you think vegetarian cuisine is a new-age thing, think again — meat-free diets have been a staple of Buddhist practice for centuries. For a delicious vegetarian meal with a side order of tranquillity, head to Chi Lin Vegetarian, the Buddhist restaurant nestled behind the Silver Strand Waterfall in Nan Lian Garden. Classic Chinese cuisine with a contemporary touch is the order of the day, with seasonal vegetables, fruits, mushrooms and tofu always on the menu. The Zen-like atmosphere somehow makes every bite taste better, and well-priced lunch, dinner and tea sets are available. Reservations are advised, especially on weekends.
