It’s the new year and when we look in the mirror we’re slightly regretting the indulgences of the festive season… One great way to cut some calories in January is to go veggie, and there are some great vegetarian restaurant options in Hong Kong!
Kung Tak Lam Shanghai Vegetarian Cuisine
10/F, World Trade Centre, 280 Gloucester Road, Causeway Bay – 2890 3127
Classic Shanghainese favourites, including xiao long bao and cold noodles prepared with mock meats and tofu instead of pork, chicken and seafood – yummy!
3/F, 6 Gilman’s Bazaar, Central
Not content with being just a vegetarian restaurant, Soland is vegan friendly as well. Only open for lunch Mondays through Saturdays, Soland is cheap and cheerful, though quite basic. There menu is limited, but if you’re looking for healthy options for a post-New Year detox, Soland is perfect.
10/F, 11 Stanley Street, Central – 3902 3902
With a cool, 50s Americana vibe and international favourites on the menu, Veggie SF ranks as one of the coolest veggie restaurants in Hong Kong. Vegetarian lasagna, burgers, bibimbap and sashimi rice are a few of the east and west dishes available.
World Peace Café
21-23 Tai Wong Street East, Wanchai – 2527 5870
Around the corner from The Pawn and run by monks and volunteers, the food is always good and wholesome. Advanced reservations are a must, especially around lunchtime. They offer set dinner menus alongside yummy desserts and fruit shakes.
1/F, 20 Luard Road, Wanchai – 2520 5308
Now the weather’s a bit cooler, a nice, warming curry is just the thing you need to pick you up. It’s not the grandest of restaurants, but the creamy curries and tandoori platters hit the spot.
