When people talk of Hong Kong cuisine it’s easy for our minds to jump to images of street food, dim sum and roasted goose, but there is a growing vegetarian/vegan movement in the city. With a 2014 Ipsos Hong Kong survey concluding an estimate of 23% of the population practices a plant-based diet at least once a week, the idea of cutting out animal products is slowly becoming a reality.

It is no secret that animal products are not good for your health. In recent years, you have probably heard reports on processed meats being a cancer causing grade 1 carcinogen, and it is not something to take lightly. But with a growing number of plant-based alternatives, there has never been a better time to reduce our meat consumption.

And certainly with organisations such as Green Monday promoting a plant-based lifestyle, along with growing concerns from society regarding our diets effect on the planet and the animals that are involved, veganism is going nowhere soon.
