Cheap and cheerful Chinese - Edit

I usually end up getting takeaway from this place for dinner when I am too lazy to cook. It's small and cosy but not that comfortable for eating in.

The wait staff at this branch speak good English - almost all their items are vegan.

They also have a branch near Wan Chai station, with the same menu.

The food is simple, nothing outstanding, but it's good value for money. I like the string beans with mince (and rice), and the aubergine dish (with rice). The wraps are basic but fine (need to check with them about sauces for vegan). I liked the soup of the laksa but really don't like the texture of the vegan fish balls.

Pros: decent value, quick

Cons: food quite simple

not bad - Edit

Hole in the wall with a few seats. Wide menu including pasta and wraps as well as Chinese set menu. Ok, but nothing special. Very good English spoken!

sooo vegi - electric road - Edit

i hate to say this, but the more i dine at sooo vegi, the more i'm reminded how easy it is to whip up a simple meal at home for a fraction of the price.

my hkd45 plate of "spaghetti with spinach and corn in cream sauce" was - while not quite yet saizeriya's standards - filling at best. the only other noticeable ingredient besides what's in its name were some mushrooms, the spaghetti was on the dry side, and the sauce veered towards sickly sweet - one only hopes that canned cream of corn soup didn't have a part to play in this meal.

when i asked which of their rice dishes don't contain mock meat, i was told only two, of which one was sold out. if you're likewise not a fan of mock meat, you can also opt for salads and two out of three pastas (not the bolognese), or ask that veggie mince/sausages be excluded from the wraps. if you choose to exclude mock meat from the rice dishes, half of your meal would probably be gone!

i'd rate this 2 to 3 stars food-wise, but credit must be given where credit is due: by "vege-nising" chaa chaa teng and other mainstream dishes amidst a bright, modern setting, it's doing a good job of popularising vegetarian food. while i was there, there was a constant stream of customers ordering takeaway meals.

with so few veggie eateries in the neighbourhood, i still want to find something to love in sooo vegi and will make it a point to try more unique dishes like potato skin and stuffed vegetables (煎釀三寶) next time. hopefully i'll be pleasantly surprised.

(there's a corner fruit store a few units down that serves delicious takeaway fruit juices.)

Cons: food not fantastic, not value for money

Sooo Yummy - Edit

Lovely service with an English menu if required. Food was so delicious I forgot to take a photo. We had the potato skins, buffalo chicken wrap as well as the pasta which was very tasty. Highly recommended if you are in the Fortress Hill area just across the road from the train station in Boat Street.

Pros: Cheap, Tasty, Friendly staff

Cons: Only 3 tables, suited for takeaway

Sooo Vegi, Hong Kong - Edit

This place has a small menu of 7 or 8 Chinese dishes server with rice and also some western offerings such as pasta, wraps, pumpkin soup. I had the pumpkin soup followed by fried red cabbage and some kind of mock meat with rice. Pretty good for 43 hkd.

Pros: Vegan friendly, Inexpensive
