Salads that Will Make You Like Salads

Even the biggest carnivores can’t resist these four delicious salads 

Hong Kong is a foodie city that basically revolves around meals. With so many delicious options, like yum cha, BBQ, and buffet brunches – it’s easy to forget that you need vegetables too. But it turns out your parents were right – you actually do need to eat some green once in a while.

The good news is, eating your veggies can be delicious—if you know where to go. Read on to find four mouth-watering spots where you can try the best salads in Hong Kong.
 
Le Garcon Saigon

This Wan Chai favourite may be known as a Saigonese grillhouse, but that doesn’t mean they can’t do a mean salad too! The Buddha’s Textural Salad is a must try, made with young mustard leaves, pickled lotus and crispy yuba. It’s a flavour explosion with enough texture that you’ll never get bored. For something a bit more meaty, the Shredded Chicken Cabbage Salad is also a winner, made with rau ram, pickled chilli and prawn chips. To be honest, almost anything here becomes a salad when you wrap it up in a rice roll with tons of fresh herbs, greens, pickles and more!
