Have you ever wondered what’s vegan at Pei Wei Asian Kitchen? Pei Wei’s vegan options include customizable stir-fried rice bowls with flavors inspired by Chinese and Thai cuisines. The fast-casual chain lists vegetarian options on its menu with a green leaf icon, but some of these contain honey and butter. However, don’t worry—it’s totally possible to enjoy an animal-friendly meal by opting for these vegan choices.

Note: Please confirm ingredients with the individual restaurant, as cooking methods and ingredients may vary by location.
