This family-run place is reminiscent of how we started Grassroots Pantry: it’s half shop, half restaurant although it’s become so popular they’ve had to expandrecently. I love it because it’s down to earth and run by a husband and wife. I’m moderately intolerant to onions and garlic and I know the restaurant doesn’t serve any of those so it’s a great place for me to go. The raw mango salad and ‘prawn’ cakes are very good.
I specifically go here for the mango mochi, a popular local Hong Kong dessert.is a local bakery on Gage Street; we sometimes pass by on our way to the market and pick up a few mango mochi for afternoon tea with the team. The mangoes are super fresh and the dough is very moist.
Healthy Indian food is quite difficult to find. Most Indian restaurants use lots of oil but not at; although they use ghee, garlic and onion, the food doesn’t taste fatty or oily. It’s also a staple in Hong Kong and one of the must-go places. I would recommend the dosas with curries and pickles.
I recently found out about Chuen Koon through a delivery service and have started to order it more regularly. It’s not vegetarian, but they’re very accommodating and the dishes can be easily tweaked for my dietary restrictions. I always order the spicy potato thread, cabbage and spicy rubber-band noodles.
