Respond to Review of Veggie SF
by Simon B

Review: At a minimum guaranteed spend of 150HK$ per head to book a table, this isn’t a cheap option for veggie dining in Hong Kong by any stretch. However, despite the cluttered charm of the pastiche 50’s diner décor, the quality of the meal I had certainly did not reflect the price tag. I went for one of the three available veggie burger options – portabella mushroom – expecting to find a large juicy fungal delight crowning a patty of some sort. But no: to my surprise a small, pallid portabella mushroom cozying with a slice of tomato between two dry, oversized slabs of bread WAS the burger in sum total. This was accompanied by three or four large hunks of potato that were already tepid on arrival, and a perfunctory mass of leaves serving as a salad. This was woeful even in comparison with the token veggie burgers found on budget menus in UK pubs, let alone fit for an expensive Western-style vegetarian diner in Hong Kong. Sadly, even the exceptionally friendly staff were not enough to relieve the sense of gastronomic gouging on this occasion.
