In this post we’re going to shine a light on the types of vegetarian dishes out there in Hong Kong. You’ll be surprised at how good veggie cuisine in Hong Kong is at replicating originally meat-based dishes. We’ll highlight our top 7 veggie dishes we had in Hong Kong.
1. BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP
Supposed to represent a vegetarian form of Shark Fin Soup which is very popular in Hong Kong.
This dish was an amazing starter. The brown-looking food at the bottom of this image was completely vegetarian but meant to represent belly pork! It was quite strange to eat as it tasted and looked like meat but it definitely wasn’t. On the left was fried tofu strips. On the right was pastry rolls and at the top was mushrooms. We’d never seen or eaten anything like it!
3. CRISPY VEGETABLE BOWL
This was really nice. It had a crispy outer bowl filled with pine nuts, courgettes, pepper and onion.
4. VEGETARIAN SWEET AND SOUR CHICKEN
Our absolute favourite sweet and sour dish in veggie form. Again, it tasted so much like the real deal it was hard to believe otherwise. We believe they used seitan which is a vegan form of meat substitute.
5. FRIED VEGETARIAN TARO FISH WITH MANGO
This was a really tasty dish. Inside was taro, which is similar to sweet potato but is grey-looking. Dotted throughout the dish was mango chunks and if you were lucky you got some! Delicious!
6. VEGETARIAN SEAFOOD AND VEGETABLES
Very similar dish to squid and vegetables. The white mushrooms were very similar texture to squid and alongside the crunchy veg and the cashew nuts it was a fab dish.
7. VEGGIE PORK BELLY STEAMED WITH TARO
No pork belly here but this dish is meant to symbolise the much loved Hakka Belly Steamed with Taro dish. This was fried taro to give the taro crispness on its surface. Extremely tasty and a fav of ours.
