These vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Sheung Wan have made the impossible possible; who knew plant-based food could taste so good? (Actually, we did!)
The plant-based revolution is going strong in Hong Kong. There are a wide range of vegetarian restaurants in Hong Kong, ranging from acai cafes like Supabowl to restaurants such as Pop Vegan. Not only are we big fans of the plant-based nutrients, guilty pleasures are equally important. Hong Kong Island has always been a heaven for healthy eaters, so this time we’ve scouted out the best vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Sheung Wan – and it’s not just great salads!
