The Grand Hyatt Taipei Reduces Their Carbon Footprint by Encouraging Vegetarian Mondays


As Taipei grooms its reputation as one of the top destinations in Asia for vegetarian cuisine, the Grand Hyatt Taipei is repurposing the Monday blues as an opportunity to go green.

In a new collaboration with Green Monday, a social enterprise that encourages meat-lovers to give up their beloved steak for one day a week, many of the Grand Hyatt’s nine restaurants will be introducing omnipork, a 100% plant-based pork alternative, in their meat-free meals.

Yun Jin Chinese restaurant and Pearl Liang Cantonese seafood restaurant has also completely revamped and upgraded their existing vegetarian options on their menu. Some of their new creative dishes include a crispy fried bean curd sheet roll that’s fashioned like a chicken drumstick with an edible “bone,” braised minced veggie ball soup, steamed black truffle dumplings, crispy shredded vegetarian puffs, and deep fried shredded pumpkin rolls with a pomelo sauce.

The crispy fried bean curd sheet roll from Yun Jin Chinese restaurant is one of their delicious new vegetarian options.

“Green is the new black,” said Jan-Hendrik Meidinger, general manager of Grand Hyatt Taipei. “If you’re living green at home, you shouldn’t have to change colour when you come to a hotel.”

Taipei has a reputation as Asia’s most vegetarian-friendly city. Global animal rights organisation, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), named the city the most vegan friendly city in Asia, and according to CNN over 13 percent of Taiwanese are vegetarian.

Green Monday was created to combat climate change and global food insecurity. Since it started in Hong Kong in 2012, 22% of Hong Kong’s population now shun meat on Monday, resulting in 300 million animal lives saved annually and 375 billion litres of water saved each year.
