kam heung vegetarian - fortress hill - Edit

[update 25.12.16: i'm beginning to enjoy my visits less and less, not because of the food (always greasy and somewhat faded in colour, but filling and cheap by hk standards), but because on my recent visits on sundays, the woman manning the store has been talking very loudly to her regular customers about non-vegetarian food. today it was about preserved sausage from a store selling snake soup, and salmon. i know it's impractical to expect everyone working in a veggie eatery to be vegetarian, but hearing such conversation does mar the dining experience. if this continues, i'll bring my lunchbox and ask for a packed meal (it's cheaper by a couple of dollars even). it's okay on weeknights, when it's manned by a quieter lady and diners (usually solo) eat in silence.]

at $38 for rice, soup and a choice of three dishes (or $35 for two choices, and even less for takeaway), this hole-in-the-wall eatery is one of the cheapest i've come across on hong kong island. they don't stint on their helpings either - i couldn't decide on the my third choice, and the lady gave me half of each.

the big bowl of soup was hearty and delicious, packed with lots of ingredients. while the dishes looked visually unappealing (i went after 2 pm today and they'd probably been heated up continuously for a long time), they were tasty albeit a little greasy. i was stuffed for hours after this meal.

[update 30.8.15: i peeked in around 7.30 pm yesterday and even the green vegetables had turned a dull shade of yellow. i'd definitely recommend going earlier in the day!]

if you're looking for a quiet respite, this may not be the place for you, as it's frequented by regulars who chat away loudly with staff. i took it as an opportunity to practise my cantonese listening and to immerse myself in a slice of local life.

Kam Heung Vegetarian - Fortess Hill - Edit

What a bargain this place is.

They also have a shop in Quarry Bay and it's the same sort of set up. They offer a fixed price deal of a bowl of soup and a choice of 3 dishes out of around 8 or 9 nine that they have on offer and of course also includes rice. You get change out of 40 honkie bucks, a superb deal for HK island.

My Cantonese is pretty abysmal but there was a bloke working there who seemed to speak pretty decent English. He seemed to say that apart from one egg dishes everything else is vegan.

The location is just off Kings Road 2 or 3 mins walk from Fortress Hill station.
