Pure Veggie House, Central, Hong Kong
I don’t know many vegetarian restaurants in Hong Kong, in fact none before I went to Pure Veggie House. I love meat, but this year I have started doing meatless Monday. Pure Veggie House can be found in Coda Plaza, which is in Mid-Levels. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I have indeed very pleasantly surprised.
We started with the mix ‘meat’ platter – which includes vegetarian bbq pork and I have to say, it was pretty good. It tastes almost like the real thing.
The fried ‘white bait’ which is fried mushroom was excellent. It was thin and crispy and not oily at all. It was hard to not eat the whole thing.
I love the tofu hot pot – the tofu was incredibly silky.
The ‘bbq pork’ bun was delicious. The bun was soft and fluffy and the meat had the right texture and sweetness.
I love sweet and sour pork, the vegetarian version was not as good as the real thing unfortunately. The ‘pork’ was a little chewy and rubbery but the sauce itself was good.
The vegetarian dumplings I really liked, a little on the small side but it wasn’t oily or fatty.
We all enjoyed the vegetarian spring rolls.
The menu was vast, it took us a while to peruse the menu. There were some dim sum dishes on offer also. Service was a bit of a hit and miss but food was definitely scrumptious. Would be keen to go back to try their other dishes.
