As Buddha taught of respecting life and to maintain long term peace, Vegetarianism has become part of the Buddhist Culture. In any event related to Buddhism, vegetarian food would be the choice if food is necessary.
Vegetarian fare is gaining more popular as more new perspectives are being shared. Lead to more meat-eaters including more vegetarian meals in their diet and not just on 1st or 15th of the lunar calendar (Buddhist do not have to be a vegetarian, but they do appreciate the beauty of vegetarian cuisine).
