Chow in Cantonese means “to stir-fry” or cook, i.e. chow mein means to cook noodles. So Chow Vegan means to cook vegan food.

Born in the zodiac year of the rabbit, I’m a native Californian descended from a family of Chinese-American restaurateurs and a long-time vegetable connoisseur. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Chow Vegan features an eclectic mix of veganized home-style Chinese dishes, food reviews, simple cooking with fresh local produce and an occasional mash-up thrown in for good measure.
