Plant-based protein and mock meat have been an integral part of Chinese cuisine for millennia. For anyone like myself eating a more plant-based diet, Layonna is a must-visit. It’s a key supplier for the growing community of plant-based restaurants in the Bay Area. At the shop, they stock a wide range of proteins and meat/seafood substitutes, including textured vegetable protein, shrimp, fish tofu, and more. Don’t miss out on their vegan-friendly fish sauces or XO sauces either.
