Vegetarian fine dining at Vegelink

If you’ve never been to Vegelink, you’re in for a treat (especially if you’re vegetarian!). No more wondering, “Can I eat that?” — everything here is safely vegetarian, even if it looks deceptively meat-like.

The restaurant has pretty amazing dim sum on the weekends (review coming soon) but I was recently there for a set dinner of about 8 courses, and waddled out with a bunch of Vegelink products. Yes, the restaurant is connected to a store that sells all kinds of veggie-friendly products like mock meat, ‘chicken nuggets’, soy patties, coconut oil and other healthy goodies, so be sure to check it out.

Review

Besides the amazing presentation, everything tasted very fresh and full of flavour, with the exception of the baked tomato, which was a bit bland due to not having enough cheesy filling. The crab cakes were also really good (they’re fried after all) and every ‘mock’ meat tasted super realistic.

The apple puffs at the end were also light and fluffy, and were followed by a red bean soup that red bean lovers would definitely appreciate (instead of whole beans, they’re ground up so the soup is a fine powdery consistency).

Cost

All of this cost around HK$300 per person, which is a really good deal when you consider all the food. I forgot to mention there is also a rice dish (yellow rice with corn inside) which didn’t taste like much (hence, no pic).

Highly recommended for a nice veggie dinner in a quiet location!
