Health Essential, Hong Kong - Edit

In my humble view this establishment would improve further if the pork and beef sausages were removed. Same with the chicken broth. Selling meat doesn't cut it for me in health food shop.

Cons: Sells meat products

Mostly western style products - Edit

I found that this store carried fairly similar shelved stuff to places I have been in UK / USA / Australia. I didn't notice any fresh produce. It had the shelves nicely marked though indicating things that were suitable for diabetics (and other requirements like gluten free, too).

It is a blessing particularly for people with dietary needs and expats in Hong Kong to have access to a place like this.

Pros: well selected range

Charming - Edit

I was impressed at the great collection of products here. Not the biggest of shops but they really nailed it with loads of essential and interesting products. However seems most of the stuff originates from the US. I just wish there could be more variety in origin, but I was happy to see some Japanese and cheap Indian products:) The service is really good, lovely staff. Will visit here on my future trips to Hong Kong!

Pros: variety, friendliness, expertise

Cons: US galore, lack of MORE shampoos

Health Gate --> Health Essential - Edit

Great healthy store. It's a bit difficult to find though. You have to take an elevator to access the shop.

Inside you'll find a lot of products. Snacks, baking products, all suitable for vegetarian and vegan.

Pros: large choice
