Lotus veggie, Hong Kong

Posted on 11 / 15 / 2014

I had dinner here last night. Very enjoyable.

To start with I plumped for some soup. Despite the menu not appearing to say so, there was a quite a lot of sweet corn in it (I'm already corny enough). Other than at it was pleasant enough.

Choice of main course are very heavy on the mock meats which may not appeal to some. I had a lotus, mushroom and pea snaps dish which was delightful. I had also what seemed to be balls of tofu and potato mixed together served with cashews. A little different and enjoyable. Complimentary dessert was provided, red bean sweet soup.

No issues with the waiting staff, decor nor vibe. 10% service charge added to the bill.

Pros: Vegan friendly, Nice food

As explained by the other reviewers, the menu for rice and noodles are in Chinese. The waitresses do speak English, but none could understand what I was asking for (all I wanted was fried noodles). They then completely ignored me and attended to their patrons. I had no other choice but to find soomeplace else to eat. I've not stepped foot in this restaurant since. It is just 2 doors away from where I live.

Pros: Please refer to other reviews :)
Cons: Menu not completely in English., Poor communication skills

Food: portion and ingredients are generous (please see photo) although I hadn't the chance to try many different dishes I tend to believe that they don't skimp in their products. The only negative is that some dishes came out very oily. One to really avoid is the stir fried rice noodles (炒河粉). Very greasy.
But their mushroom fried rice is absolutely fine and delicious! Not greasy at all.

Place: What caught my eye is that there's an exhaust fan on the shopfront drawing air out. Next, there's a floor fan turned on near the cash register, circulating air in the room. Two cassette type air conditioners on the ceiling. This shows the management's concern for air quality in the dining room, a small detail.
Cleanliness: the table "cloth" looks like cloth and is easily cleaned. The floor is "carpeted" dark green and very clean. For a common Chinese eating place what's unusual is that they provide a full box of tissues on each table.
These are tiny details that give you a clue as to how they approach the running of a food place. And they get high marks.
Kowloon City has its own flavours as a place. Buildings are (still) low, lots of sun shining in. Shops are varied and many are decades old. People are very friendly, lots of Chiu Chows. The place is bustling day and night.

Very friendly staff and great selection of food. Some of it rather special (in a good sense ;)). Definitely try the fried potatos with mushroom!

Look for small circles in the pictures. Those indicate eggs in the dishes. Also double check that there is no butter in it if you are vegan!

Pros: Helpfull Staff, Rather Quiet
Cons: Location, Not Everything In English On Menu

Great veggie restaurant

Very homely family run restaurant. The food tastes amazing, but try and order off the set menu and pick things you like. Their dessert selection isn't fantastic, but the main dishes (especially the mock-meat dishes) are fantastic. The dishes range from extremely healthy buddhist veggies to oil-saturated deep fried tofu, so even though it's vegetarian it's not always 100% healthy. The menu is also in English for the main dishes, but the rice and noodle sections at the back are all in cantonese. The staff and quite good at recommending dishes and the food is cooked quickly. They also have a take-out section and upstairs seating if the restaurant is busy.

I recommend their taro fish, peiking duck and the vanilla-pumpkin baked rice. Exceptionally tasty food!

Pros: lots of veggie options, delicious foods, reasonable prices
Cons: oily food, no desserts, no fully english menu

Friendly little family run cafe

Delicious food.

Nearly all vegan.

Run by a very friendly family team.

A little off the beaten track but worth the effort of going there.

It is located just to the north of Boundary Street - a few minutes walk from the delightful 'Kowloon Walled City Park' - I usually pick up a 106 bus on Hong Kong Island when I am heading to that part of town.

This is an area of Hong Kong with a great deal of 'history' - have a read - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kowloon_Walled_City

The old airport 'Kai Tak' is also nearby.
