Hong Kong – The vegan dining scene in Hong Kong has exploded, from the 100 per cent vegan menu at the famous LockCha Tea House to restaurants that offer everything from meat-free “chicken” satay skewers to vegan fried eggs. That’s why the city has landed a spot on PETA’s list of the Top 10 Vegan-Friendly Cities in Asia.

“Whether you’re looking for ‘chicken’ nuggets made with soya or dairy- and egg-free waffles drizzled with chocolate, Hong Kong has the restaurant for you”, says PETA Vice President of International Campaigns Jason Baker. “The city has been awarded a spot on PETA’s list, thanks to its vibrant and delicious cuisine that’s kind to animals, the environment, and diners’ health alike.”

Included among Hong Kong’s all-vegan eateries are Veggie SF – where compassionate diners can get “meaty” burgers with vegan mayonnaise, dairy-free milkshakes, and chocolate molten cake, among other tasty dishes – and Loving Hut, home of sweet “egg” tarts, deep-fried “eel” cutlet, “cheese and fried egg” sandwiches, and dairy-free cheesecake. Pure Veggie House serves a variety of meat-free dim sum alongside traditional “shark fin” soup, while LN Fortunate Coffee prepares standout waffles, “hot dogs”, and pasta with “meatballs”.

Diners can hit up vegan-friendly Cali-Mex for its Venice Beach burrito, loaded with shredded soy “chicken” and dairy-free cheese and sour cream, and then visit nearby Mana! – which serves peanut-butter chocolate cake and coconut and chocolate truffles – for dessert. Home – Eat to Live creates dishes such as melty dairy-free grilled cheese sandwiches and coconut-and-strawberry cake.

Hong Kong is also home to Green Common, an all-vegetarian supermarket that sells everything from vegan meats such as Gardein and Beyond Meat to Miyoko Schinner’s line of dairy-free cheeses.
