A Vegan’s Guide to Hong Kong

Whether you’re a strict vegan or leaning towards eating less animal products, there are plenty of restaurants in the city that serve plant-based meals you’ll love. Besides opting for a health-conscious lifestyle, you’ll be saving the planet with every scrumptious bite. From Chinese to Italian, you don’t have to compromise on flavour to indulge in your favourite (yet wholesome) cuisine. For all of you who are ready to explore a vegan diet — one that’s as sustainable as it is tasty — here are the restaurants in Hong Kong worth checking out.

Kind Kitchen

The brainchild of Green Common, Kind Kitchen serves Asian-inspired dishes that are both vegan and creative. From tan tan noodles (HK$88) to gyoza (HK$52) and banh mi (HK$88), every bite on the menu is seasoned to perfection with rich flavours even a meat lover would crave. Wash it all down with a modern take on Hong Kong’s beloved (oat) milk tea (HK$40). If that’s not enough, they even have a plant-based grocery store and organise health talks with their very own dietitians.
