Launch of plant-based menu at Mott 32 in Vancouver


Mott 32 Vancouver, the award-winning Chinese restaurant, is gearing up to launch a new plant-based supplemental menu on August 26. The line of dishes celebrates plant-based ingredients while paying homage to Chinese dishes that traditionally contain meat, such as Siu Mai and Lion Head Meatballs. Mott 32 has redefined Chinese cuisine with its fine dishes and use of premium ingredients, the restaurant promises customers that same uncompromising standard for which it has become famous in its fine plant-based offerings.

“Our plant-based menu is the result of months of recipe development, recreating the flavors and textures of traditional dishes. We are delighted to present this menu to our customers around the world, marrying true Cantonese cooking techniques with a more sustainable approach to food,” shares Chef Lee Man Sing, Executive Chef of the China Group.

Vegetable ingredients such as a variety of mushrooms, water chestnuts and bamboo shoots have been combined with tofu and meat alternatives to replicate traditional dishes. In addition to fresh, local ingredients, the chefs at Mott 32 have included products developed by OmniFoods. This food technology company creates alternative plant-based products based on extensive research into Asian cuisines and cooking practices.

Menu highlights include crispy tofu reminiscent of crispy chicken with Sichuan peppercorns. Lion’s Head light and fluffy meatballs are made with a combination of tofu, mushrooms and water chestnuts. Mott 32’s Signature Smoked Black Cod is replicated on the menu with a version made with soy protein, pea protein, rice protein and shiitake mushroom powder in place of the fish.

Five menu items will launch with plans to add more in the coming months, as well as seasonal features. The new plant-based offerings complement a wide assortment of popular meatless dishes already offered by Mott 32 Vancouver, including assorted wild mushrooms sautéed in a lettuce cup with black truffle shavings.

The plant-based menu will be available during lunch and dinner service.

Reservations can be made by calling the restaurant at +1-604-861-0032 or via open table.
