Respond to Review of Kan Kee Vegetarian Food
by JohnnySensible

Review: An 'almost vegan' sanctuary in the middle of a very meaty market. If you are planning an evening visit - phone to Elsa to let her know that you are coming - 92878787. 20+ years of serving veggy food to the local comunity. Loyal clientele. If you visit often enough they may name a dish after you! Seating for around 30 - plus a thriving take away business. HK's vegan MeetUp club will be eating at Kan Kee on Monday 11th Jan! From a recent magazine article - +Outdoor butchers, fishmongers and grocers surround the wet market complex itself, which houses the cooked food stalls. Kan Kee Vegetarian is one of the most famous. Before World War II, Kan Kee was a fishball noodles stall but when the family business was handed over to the eldest daughter, a vegetarian, it began to serve vegetarian fare instead. The neighborhood clientele gamely came to give the new menu a go and the veggie dishes went down a treat, with loyal customers slowly becoming part of the story behind the stall. "Mr. Leung's stew," for example, is named after a businessman who comes twice a week to order the same simple veggie dish.+ Full story here -
