A veggie refuge with caring owners

Posted on 03 / 11 / 2015

This busy suburb often offers little choice for a Veg-head on their lunch/afternoon tea menus. Jane is a perfect stopover for snacks or desserts. The shop is often busy but Jane and her partner also pay attention to quality and service, both mild and friendly. A rare find in this busy town. Open till late.

Pros: very good quality offered for its price, attentive to needs (eg low/no sugar), healthy and simple tasting food
Cons: Narrowest male toilet in the world, Often very occupied and seats are close

Very good authentic food

This restaurant is rather small but you we didn't have to wait too long to get a seat. Be prepared to share your table though.
The owner is very helpful and speaks basic English. So no problem at all. He is very proud of his food. He even gave us other things for tasting after we ordered.

Unfortunately this shop is not fully vegan anymore. They added one dish that contains cheese. This is clearly stated on the menu though. So I still consider this mostly vegan. Well, as much as Chinese restaurants are vegan: If you are looking for 100% (like vinegar that wasn't made from non-vegan wine) I guess you shouldn't go to any Asian restaurants. I'm not even sure most "western" restaurants take care of this.

All the main ingredients of the other dishes are vegan though. I had some rice with shitake mushrooms and vegetables. Go take the set menu, which contains a glas of cold/warm/hot soy milk! Tastes very good!
We also had the glutenous rice ball, which is also a great take away as they are always available ready to go.

The deserts are authentic tofu puddings with different toppings and seasonings. Also available in warm and cold. Try the cold mango desert! Sugar sirup and powder are available to make it as sweet as you like!

Pros: Very friendly staff, Vegan minus one dish
Cons: Very small

I went there a couple of times and it's always good! Not everyone speaks english but I got good service. The soy milk is very good and the soup noodles too. The only downside is that the place is VERY small, sometimes you need to wait for people to leave to have a place.

Pros: Taste, Vegan, Price
Cons: Small

A popular vegan restaurant for sweet desserts

4
Posted on 06 / 10 / 2014

The menu is also in English detailing the ingredients.
Sweet desserts that are "chef's specialties" are highlighted. The "soy skin" / barley soup is particularly good (see photo) as are the usual red bean soup, dumplings in ginger soup, tofu fa (soft tofu with sugar), the sesame soup etc. The owner puts gradular and liquid sugar on the table so the client could augment the level of sweetness to his/her own taste. All desserts are made with a slightly low level of sweetness for this purpose.

Though it's known for its unique sweet Chinese desserts, Jade provides a small menu of savoury dishes including noodles, congees and rice. The ubiquitous Chinese vegan "roast meats" is available here.

Pros: Very conscientious management, Consistent good food quality, Appealing menu.
Cons: Stools, and a little cramped., A bit pricier than average.

I had dinner in this place last night. I have numerous positives to say about it.

1stly its quite easy to find. Its on the ground floor on the corner of the block. While most of the writing from the outside is in Cantonese, there's words like 'veggie' in nice clear letter's painted on the outside.

I asked the waiter for something that was made with no eggs, no milk products, no honey. He said 'everything' as they don't use any of these products. His English was good as was another member of staff. There's an English language menu so ordering was easy.

I went for a bowl of noodle and mixed veg soup and also some dim sum. The soup was probably enough on its own. All ends up the whole things came to 53 hkd.

Very usefully its open late. I arrived at around 11 pm and someone arrived later than me and was still OK to order.

Pros: Vegan friendly, Open late
