Pure Veggie House – Mid Levels, Hong Kong

photo 1

It’s always great (and safe) to go to a Buddhist restaurant, cause more often that not, it will be vegetarian. Pure Veggie House is exactly that, the name pretty much gives it away. A small busy Chinese eatery, filled with chaos, lots of tables and happy eaters, Pure Veggie House is the perfect place for a hearty Sunday lunch. As you walk in you will see a bunch of vegetables revolving in a fridge like display, above them it says ‘Fresh Organic Vegetables’, that is when you know they take their food seriously.

The waiters at Pure Veggie may not understanding anything you are saying, but since this is an all vegetarian restaurant, it’s not such a problem. Pointing at the menu and then holding up your fingers to indicate how many portions you want usually does the trick. The service is quick and there is an all-you-can-drink pot of tea set at your table for any seconds you may spend waiting. I would say that everything on the menu should be had, because the food was so good, and very rarely can a vegetarian eat everything on a menu.  Read more

Kings Joy – Beijing

Kings Joy – that is the perfect name for this restaurant. Beautifully designed, with clean modern furniture, crisp decor and delectable food, just being at this restaurant is a joy. Kings Joy is the coming together of a Buddhist monk and a nutritionist that are trying to promote healthy eating and vegetarianism to the world. I am definitely not complaining! You can feel the serenity of buddhism in the vibe of the restaurant.

This eatery is definitely looking to the future with its food, clean design and high-tech gadgets. The menus are iPads and you have to order as if you are shopping online, its very hard to do that when you have so many options! The menu had a variety of asian fusion foods, and some Italian options as well, we steered away from the Italian and went all out on the asian.  Read more
