Hong Kong Vegan + Vegetarian Restaurant Guide

While Hong Kong has one of the highest meat consumptions per capita in the world (pork and beef consumption are the highest, with average daily consumption four times higher than the UK), awareness of the devastating environmental impact of meat, and ethical concerns over animal welfare, is growing. This is resulting in an increasing shift towards more plant-based diets.

But, being plant based isn't all salads, chips and a side of fruit. Availability of plant-based alternatives—such as meats, cheese and milk—has steadily increased over the years, and the city has numerous fresh fruit and vegetable markets. Hong Kong also boasts a number of vegetarian and vegan restaurants, with new additions every year, from Chinese cuisine, Indian, raw food and indulgent burgers and desserts.

Here are 13 of our favourite vegetarian and vegan restaurants in Hong Kong.

Soil to Soul

Located in the K11 mall, Soil to Soul is a relatively new addition to the veggie dining landscape. Headed by chef Gu Jin Kwang, a protégé of famous Korean nun Woo Kwan, who is an expert in temple food, the restaurant offers contemporary vegetarian Korean food that is temple inspired and beautifully presented. The restaurant's interiors are minimalist zen, all the better to enjoy your delicious food. Soil to Soul collaborates with local farms for fresh ingredients and vegetables for a sustainable farm to table experience. It’ll be a struggle not instagramming every dish.
