But I manage to get real veg food at the famous Po Lin Monastery on the 1st day where we went to see the Big Buddha on Lantau Island.
Do note the veg restaurant is not inside the cultural centre where the Big Buddha is. It is located inside the Monastery. There was also a vegetarian food festival going on at Ngong Ping village beside the Monastery where there were several booths selling veg related stuff, but it wasn't much.
First we were served soup (My friend says Cantonese people drink their soup 1st before eating the main meal).
There was so much food left, so I pack them back to the hostel for dinner. We stayed at the USA hostel at Tsim Sha Tsui, Mirador Mansion. It was great for budget travelling. They have hot showers till midnight, air-con, drinking water (mineral water) from common corridor. The bedding looks reasonably clean and the place is located at the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui. More about the trip and food from a veg restaurant in HK the next post. Here's a view out from our room.
