Chef Gray Kunz and the team at Café Gray Deluxe at The Upper House have launched the Revitalising Menu, a menu that features organic vegan and gluten-free dishes that are created from sustainable products
Hong Kong is embracing wellness with open arms, and we’ve seen a steady stream of yoga studios and fitness studios opening throughout the city. Alongside this, people are looking for healthy food when they go out to restaurants, and that’s exactly why Café Gray Deluxe at The Upper House has launched its Revitalising Menu, a vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free menu that changes weekly to incorporate the freshest seasonal ingredients.
The new Revitalising Menu at Café Gray Deluxe
As a vegetarian, I was very excited to hear about the new menu that has launched at Café Gray Deluxe, and as a lover of The Upper House and amazing service, my excitement was a triple threat.
We hear that Chef Gray Kunz and his team were finding themselves catering to a growing number of guests who were requesting vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free meals anyway, so it seemed logical to add an entire menu devoted to healthy and ethically-sourced food.
Vegan and gluten-free dishes that change every week
The challenge for developing the menu was in sourcing organic, non-GMO and sustainable produce to be included, but Chef Gray and his team have created some stunning dishes that even a carnivore will enjoy.
Referencing the homemade bread that is always served at the start of a meal at Café Gray Deluxe, a platter of rice cakes accompanied a tasty cauliflower dip – the perfect snack before we jumped into our starter.

On the day we visited, our meal began with a salad of radishes and arugula that also featured a citrus and soy dressing with crisped kale. A multitude of different radishes were included in the dish, some of which were pickled creating a lovely flavour next to the spicy arugula.
For our main course, we got to enjoy roasted organic carrots with a vinaigrette of Earl Grey Tea. This dish was outstanding and was served on a bed of quinoa and the most delicious pickled peaches – a total winner, and hearty to boot.
The dessert of the day was a deconstructed apricot crumble with almond ice cream and salted caramel. It was hard to believe that this bad boy was vegan; I could quite happily eat this every day, and I’m not even a dessert person.
Lastly, we were treated to chocolate mendiants and espresso, all served by the waitstaff who are so friendly and happy to help; such a rarity in Hong Kong.
Why you should try the Revitalising Menu
Whether you are a vegan, a vegetarian, gluten-free or just looking for a meal that is light and refreshing while still being creative, this is the place to visit. The menu is available at lunch and for early supper, and is priced at $395 for two courses and $445 for three courses.
