Shanghai Veggie Club started as a private group of expats with a helping spirit. When we started to dine out together as a group, we always had some Chinese people who could help us with the issues of fake vegetarian dishes, as described in the movie. Now we finally made this into a movie to help more people avoid the things they don’t want to eat. We hope you enjoy our short movie and find it helpful, good luck and tell us what you think! :D
