One dish that stands out on their menu full of vegetarian and vegan delights is the floating boat.

Braised tomato and eggplant

Soil to Soul: braised tomato and eggplant

Soil to Soul is the first of its kind in Hong Kong, serving up fine dining, modern Korean temple food that adheres to Buddha-Dharma teachings, avoiding five pungent ingredients believed to distract the mind with impure thoughts: garlic, spring onion, leek, chive and onion. The menu is eco-friendly and predominantly vegan, with only a few dishes using honey and yogurt. Their braised tomato and eggplant is a simple yet gorgeous dish, served with the restaurant’s signature fermented soy sauce and full of umami flavour.

All dishes are 100 per cent vegan and their burgers, fries and hot dogs are particularly popular. However, the return of the mac is probably our favourite item on the menu.

Best served with sweet potato or Impossible chilli cheese fries!
