Like at many restaurants in Shanghai, vegetarian and vegan offerings at Sir Elly’s Restaurant inside The Peninsula Shanghai are few and far between. For lunchtime diners, there’s a lovely Parmesan and black truffle risotto, which is vegetarian, but it is also laced with butter, cream and cheese (not vegan-friendly). For a full meal, we suggest you call Sir Elly’s Restaurant ahead of time and let the staff know about your specific dietary restrictions. Just as chef Arnaud Berthelier creates dishes for those with food allergies and restrictions, he can have the kitchen prepare dishes specifically tailored for those adhering to a vegetarian or vegan diet.
