First Review by Stevie

cheap and cheerful Chinese - Edit

This place is a good lunch option. It's small and cosy.

The wait staff speak English and helpfully pointed out what is not vegan - almost all their items are vegan.

They also have a branch near Fortress Hill 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: cheap and cheerful

Cons: simple food

Sooo Vegi - Wan Chai, Hong Kong - Edit

Update - relocated to Wan Chai
Unsurprisingly this is just like the other branch on the other side of Fortress Hill MTR. This place is a bit bigger than the other with more seating but its basically the same sort of set up. Small, inexpensive and sells a mix of Chinese and western food. Decent value for your buck.

sooo vegi - wanchai - Edit

*update as of 15 feb 2017

visited the wanchai branch for a weekday lunch after 2.30 pm. the service staff (possibly boss?) was very helpful when it came to pinpointing which dishes didn't contain eggs/dairy, though it would have been much simpler (esp for non-cantonese speaking diners) if they had just labelled their menu.

i arrived slightly after 2.30 and had their teatime deal: $38 salad (mesclun, cucumber, shredded carrot, cherry tomato, with oil and vinegar) and a hot drink (a teabag of dates and other stuff). i would have preferred one of their rice/mock meat dishes - $48+, but i decided against that as i felt it was overpriced, lacked veggies, and didn't come with any tea time special.

as per my previous comments when it was at fortress hill, it's the sort of place i'd go to if i'm too lazy to cook (or in this case, chop). the very simple rice/pasta dishes are overpriced, imho. if you're in wanchai during lunch hour, you can get a much more filling and varied meal for around the same price at happy veggies, lisa veggie and green veggie.

***


a tiny, bright and cosy glasshouse in fortress hill, at the junction of shell street and merlin street, this neighbourhood joint offers a huge blackboard of dishes, which might take a while to decipher and decide (english menu available on paper, though it omits the teatime menu).

as i wasn't that hungry, i took away a mexican wrap (hkd32) for dinner this evening, which contained lettuce/greens, chopped onions, "minced meat", a few beans, a little avocado (i had to use my imagination for that). the dressing was pretty nice and not too salty, though one wrap probably wouldn't be enough if you're a bigger eater. wish they would be more generous and pack more into it.

other dishes i've previously ordered include: purple cabbage with rice, spaghetti with mixed vegetables, stir-fried string beans with rice. on the whole i'd describe what i've tried so far as not terrible, not fantastic, nothing to rave about. kind of like a much lighter, cleaner, vegetarian version of "chaa chaan teng" food (without the "wok hei") or something you might be able to whip up in a hostel or at home if only you weren't too lazy.

they also have other stuff such as sushi platter, potato curry, all day breakfast, which i haven't yet had the opportunity of tasting.

wouldn't recommend the laksa (hkd45), which was unauthentic and which gravy was diluted and tasted like sweet+salty curried water.

Pros: accepts payment by octopus, opens till 9.30 pm

nice little place - Edit

We need more of those small restaurants, with cheap and tasty food. The place is small, which probably keeps the rental low and allow lower prices. Tried the Mexican Wrap (38$) and the braised eggplants (63$ without rice). Both good.
