Chinese Vegetarian on temple grounds. - Edit

This is a Chinese canteen on Daoist temple grounds. There are signs but it’s a little hard to find. You can buy individual meals but the best is the set group pricing where they bring out several different dishes. The spring rolls are crispy and delicious as well as the vegan chicken tenders. The other stuff just tasted typical Chinese fare to me. Mushrooms and tofu and boy choy as well as some other veggies in sauce.

Pros: Good value, Pretty location at the temple, Great spring rolls

Cons: A little difficult to find, It’s a canteen, not fancy ambience , Most food just typical Chinese tofu and veggies

Fung Ying Seen Koon Vegetarian Kitchen - Hong Kong - Edit

My Cantonese co-diner rang them today. She tells me the guy on the end of the phone told he some dishes contain egg. Note the pics attached are from my review in 2015. Prices have gone up since then. Enjoyable food is available. I'd rate this place as a 5 if the food were all vegan.

The complex of temples etc is large and impressive.

Updated from previous review on 2015-08-17

Pros: Impressive buildings, Disabled access available

Cons: 100% vegan is always better

Nothing special - Edit

After a nice trek in Pat Sin Leng country park, I ended up in Fanling at around lunch time. Fung Ying Seen Koon Restaurant is ideally located in a modern (Buddhist?) temple, just next to the MTR station. At exit B, take the bridge, then the small pedestrian tunnel on the left, and it is just a 2-minute walk to the entrance of the temple. Walk up the stairs and turn left - you'll find signs indicating the way to the vegetarian canteen. The room is quite big, round tables, a bit messy, noisy, many people. Mostly traditionnel mushroom/tofu-dishes on the menu. But it was nice to be here after spending 4 hours on the trails. I took some spring rolls (not bad) and vegetable noodles (wasn't impressed as there was far too much mushroom/tofu and very few green veggies). Quantity is ok, price reasonable (less than HKD100 for those 2 dishes). Overall it's a decent place that I would recommend if you come around, though I could understand that you may not want to specifically endure the 1h00 MTR-trip MTR from Central to come here.

Pros: Location, 5mn walk from MTR, Friendly atmosphere, in a Buddhist Temple

Cons: Déjà-vu dishes, Too much tofu/mushroom, Where are the green veggies?

Stevie 05 Jun 2015 - Hi Pascal,

Following your question mark on the religion associated with this temple in your review... I've just taken a look on the web. It's Taoist. I've submitted a request for the listing to be updated to reflect that. I've also gone through the other temples listed in HK listed on happycow and submitted update requests to specify the religion of each.

Thanks for contributing.

Keep well,
Stevie

Pascal_HK 07 Jun 2015 - Thanks for the precision. There are in fact very few Taoist temples in HK compared to Buddhist. Besides I didn't know that Taoist were vegetarian (but are they?). In fact we could even argue that not all Buddhist monks are vegetarian - for instance Tibetan Buddhism is less strict, partly related I guess to the fact that they traditionally live in places where you can't easily grow veggies, especially during the winter, and that dry meat/fish is widely available and easy to store. Cheers
