Vegan MoFo Day 28 - The Real China

Another day in Paris, another pre-prepared post...

The Real China is a little Chinese restaurant located in Thames Ditton, Surrey. It doesn't have a website but it certainly does have vegan options!

My husband's family live in Thames Ditton & this has become our go to place for dinner when we're visiting because they do delicious food & the owners are ridiculously nice.

Nick & I always order the same thing, to start we go for the vegetable gyoza dumplings...

...and seaweed without the bonito flakes.

The seaweed is always perfectly crispy & the dumplings are amazing, we always wish there were 6 so we didn't have to share that last one!

Next up we order two tofu dishes & rice to share. Braised Tofu which comes with peppers, onions & carrots.

Then tofu in yellow bean sauce with cashews (this dish is not actually on the menu but if you ask about it & tell them that you know Jojo, Nick & Bob they'll definitely make it for you!)

Both of these dishes are super delicious & I'm always wishing there was a place that did vegan Chinese food this good in Brighton - maybe there is, we'll just have to keep looking!


  1. looks really good. I have never tried crispy seaweed! the big chunks of tofu with cashews looks amazing!!

  2. It wasn't all that cheap but Gar's did us a great vegan banquet, you probably wouldn't have to have the whole thing, it was all totally delish. We asked for extra spicy though, which wouldn't do for you!

  3. This looks like a great restaurant with a clever name. Each of those dishes looks delicious!

  4. Have you tried The Loving Hut yet at the Level? They have some chinese food but I have only tried the sweet and sour soya balls so far, which I liked.

  5. The seaweed looks so good to me right now.

  6. The meal looks great, especially the tofu! Yummers!
