Hong Kong is not often touted as a place with the happiest of vegetarians in the world – this being a city of seafood and meat, of fish sauce and hidden shrimp paste in everything – but the situation is improving, and at the forefront of this wave is Happy Veggies. They have locations all over the city, and in Tsuen Wan, they have set up shop in the Yuen Yuen Institute on Lo Wai Road in the northern district. They offer a menu that is on principle entirely meat-free, but not lacking in flavour stakes. From self-devised dishes – soup dumplings with potato and tomato, for examples – to vegetarian versions of Chinese classics like corn backed in lemongrass leaves, their food doesn’t disappoint, and they’re a non-profit social enterprise to boot, providing work for the hearing-impaired, so you know that your money is going towards a sustainable and well-meaning cause. Reserve a table now and head on out to Tsuen Wan in the New Territories for a fantastic vegetarian meal in Hong Kong.
