Besides Leezen, I’m not aware of other all-vegetarian grocery stores, let alone an all-vegetarian convenience store, available in Taiwan.
“Vegue” does not, however, offer some functions of a typical convenience store seen in Taiwan (such as bill payments, ticket purchases, hubs for online shopping, etc.). For these services, you will need to visit one of the 4 major convenience stores in Taiwan, namely 7-Eleven, Family Mart, Hi-Life, & OK Mart.
I understand that with the growing popularity of plant-based/meatless/vegetarian/vegan diets, major convenience stores in Taiwan have tried to tailor the needs of those on special diets. I do appreciate their efforts, but the limited selections would still be too repetitive for someone who relies heavily on the convenience stores for meals.
It was really a wonderful and exciting shopping experience for me at “Vegue”, as I actually got to “choose” what I wanted. For example, I normally could not find any vegetarian microwavable Bento (boxed meals). I usually ended up grabbing the cold noodles and salad. These options are typically low in protein (and cold!).
There is a small eatery stand beside the cash register, where you can order and eat at the tables inside the store. Make sure you ask the staff whether a certain food item is vegan, lacto-ovo vegetarian, etc., if you are on a restricted diet. They did taste great!
I also tried the oden and bought some noodles/beverages home. Again, it was a “blessing” being able to make my own choice. I wish Vegue opens up more stores in other parts of Taiwan for sure.
