A Foodies Guide To Hong Kong

One of the most exciting things about travelling is trying all the new and delicious food from around the world. I had no idea Hong Kong was going to be such a vegetarian and vegan friendly city but I guess it comes as no surprise. Hong Kong is very modern and is an international hub that attracts all walks of life. You can find anything you want in this invigorating city.

Since I am obsessed with Instagram (follow me here) and reading other bloggers recommendations, I felt like I had an idea on where the best vegetarian good in Hong Kong is. Here were some of my favourite places to eat.

 

Best Vegetarian Food In Hong Kong 

 

Mana – Mana is probably one of the best “fast food” vegetarian places I have been to in Hong Kong. I’ve been there about four times now and love it. You can get wraps, salad bowls, desserts, juices. All of it is vegetarian and relatively cheap. It’s crazy busy at lunch time so avoid peak times. Also their falafel wrap is amazing. Deff try.

Cupping Room – It’s pretty easy to walk by this place if you don’t know where it is. Tucked away on Hong Kong Island this is a great place to grab a coffee or a toastie. Aaron and I stopped in for a coffee one day and decided to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air.

Lok Cha Tea House – Some of the best vegetarian food in Hong Kong. I came here for my 25 birthday and wasn’t disappointed. I went a little crazy ordering but everything was really good. The only thing I wouldn’t get again was the sesame rice wraps because it tasted like peanut butter on a floppy rice paper. Their dumplings and onion cakes were awesome though, I highly recommend. You have to order a tea with your food which I thought was strange. The tea is as expensive as the food so choose wisely.

Stopped by @teakha today to get a white chocolate matcha scone 😬 fun fact Teakha is also the name of my dog 🐶

Teakha – When I saw the name Teakha I knew I had to go. Teakha is the name of my dog so I couldn’t help myself. We got some scones and the matcha white chocolate one was amazing. Since Teakha is such a small cafe you have to order a drink as well in order for the owners to keep the place running. I wasn’t a huge fan of the chai I got but it’s worth checking out.

I can never take good photos when I’m hungry #HK

Mammy Pancake – If you’ve every Googled food in Hong Kong then you’ve probably seen one of the famous egg waffles. Hong Kong is famous for their egg waffles and this is definitely the place to get them. I got the chestnut egg waffle and Aaron got the coffee one. I really wanted to go back and try the green tea and chocolate one but didn’t have time. Next time I will for sure. If you’re a foodie Instagramer this is your place.

Tai Cheong Bakery – This bakery is on my foodies guide for obvious reasons. I’ve had egg tarts all over Canada and nothing can compare to this bakery. And it’s still one of the best bakeries I’ve ever been to. This place is usually lined up out the door but it moves quick. Their egg tarts are unreal. Hands down one of my favourite to go treats in Hong Kong.

Dim Sum Square – While their vegetarian menu is limited they are really cheap and really good. I got mostly deserts and Aaron got an assortment of dim sums. I share all my foodie loving on Instastories so make sure you’re following so you don’t miss out.

Cafe Deco Pizzeria – We went here twice one weekend in Hong Kong. I was just outside of our Airbnb so it was super convenient. Their pizzas are awesome and you can get take out. It’s about $25 Canadian for one pizza so the prices are steep but I think that’s average for Hong Kong?

Ozone – The highest bar in the world. If you’re looking for a really fancy place to go then this is it. You can go for an afternoon drink or experience Hong Kong at night. I went there for drinks and appetizers and while the portions we small they were really good. It has a bit of a pretentious atmosphere but is still really nice.

The Envoy – I went to The Envoy for some night cap drinks on my birthday. Since I went there for my birthday I decided that Aaron would treat me to french fries and a cocktail. They have an intimate rooftop bar so it’s a great place to get a little more fancy than normal and to grab some seriously cool drinks. One of their drinks comes in a dinosaur egg. Still kicking myself I didn’t get any photos. I was a bit intoxicated by this point haha

    The fact that we only at at Mammy of these just means we have a lot more to try if we ever return! Those cookies look good. Here is what we ate if you’re interested: https://www.marriedwithmaps.com/food-in-hong-kong-what-we-ate/

      It depends what your conversation rate is. Mines Canadian so I found it expensive when going to more modern/fancy places. The mark & Spencer’s is a life saver because after a certain time their fresh made food is half off so you can eat really cheaply and not have to worry about cooking.

      The egg waffles weren’t that expensive tho! Vender food is usually pretty cheap :]
