HOTSPOT 14 'Gaia Veggie Shop'

I think some of you know I am a semi-vegetarian: I skip
all meat except seafood. When I was in Hong Kong this summer I 
have visited this pretty nice vegetarian restaurant called Gaia 
Veggie Shop.

Yeah, you
might not get too excited of the word 'vegetarian' but this one is
pretty special: they have pork chop noodles, sushi and meatballs. 
Yes, that's right, they have it on their veggie menu! 

That's because the chefs use green ingredients and turn
them into 'fake' meat food. And they look so scary real that 
you almost forget its all made for vegetarian!

Check out the pictures!

Me and my family did a '下五茶' a kind of happy hour. 

We have ordered fake sashimi. See how real it looks? Tho the texture is a lot different than the real sashimi, the taste was pleasant nice. 


These lamb skewers in satay blew me away. They are made of potato and they tasted good! A recommendation!

'Lo mai gai' rice with chicken wrapped in lotus leaf. Really delicious as well. 

Their tea is lovely.

  7. That's such an interesting concept! I've never been to a restaurant that had vegetable sashimi and lamb skewers that were actually vegetables. That's pretty cool!

  12. how interesting. my friend once took me to a restaurant that was tied to a buddhist temple and some of their dishes actually tasted like meat (which it wasn't).

  18. lo mai gaiiii *o* i was never interested in it before but trying it out in hk last month made me think twice...i think i like lo mai gai now or maybe just the hk version *whacked*
    anyway, wow this restaurant is really...smart! and tricky! and creative! haha the chef's really good to come up with the "fake meat" concept. i wish my parents can handle being vegetarian for a day -__- psh. my mother can't avoid pork herself especially when china says pork almost 24/7. and my father's too in love with meat. i myself am a pollo-pescetarian...wanna be a vegetarian but i can't because too in love with fish :))

    close up, the sashimi actually looks kind of um rubber-like :p like they're not... flaky or slimy enough like the real thing :)) haha but yea they DO look kind of like the real sashimi. again, good job for the chef :)

    p.s: i went o_o for a moment because your tea..just went all swirly lol
