What I really want to show you in this post was the vegetarian food I bought at Sino vegetarian restaurant, near Jordan MTR. I had their vegetarian "beef" noodles which was really good - this dish was actually ovo-lacto, but they ran out of the noodles to make it and did a substitute, so I had it vegan.
Not pretty when packed, but the taste is really different (and good!) compared to the vegetarian Zhi Chars in Singapore. Its unique flavour is something which I have never tasted in Singapore so far. Even the mock meat used tasted different. The serving was also really large and you will be really full unless you like to have 1.5 to 2 Singapore servings of food in your usual meal.
Address of Sino veg rest. at 131-135 Parkes St, Yau Ma Tei, Jordan MTR exit A. It's right at the end of Parkes street which turns into Saigon street.

The rest of the trip is mainly to the peak, ocean park and disneyland.
View of HK island and Kowloon from The Peak. On the peak, I had boiled vegetables and rice at a non-veg place. Remember to always tellconfirm with the waiter not to use oyster sauce for your veggies even though they said "boiled". This was the most healthy meal I had :D
Ocean park was basically marine animals themed and you get to see lots of marine animals. They are about (or rather they claim they are about) "conservation, education etc. etc.which I thought was just BS.
It's a place where I can't find a single vegetarian place - meat and seafood is what you find. Talk about conservation.
We also get to watch dolphin and seal shows - to bring out the message of living in harmony with sea creatures. Living in harmony when we are keeping them in an unnatural environment, exploiting them for shows. Talk about education.
Disneyland - very good for kids and will satisfy the kid in you. There are vegetarian options if you are willing to compromise a little, no full fledge vegetarian place.
There wasn't time to hunt for vegetarian food in Macau. We signed up for a day tour when we reach Macau and were basically rushed here and there to the tourist spots. However I was told by the tour guide that there aren't any vegetarian places in Macau (or maybe she doesn't know of them :)). Still, there are the famous Macau almond cookies that come in "suitable for vegetarians" labels. Do take note that some of these vegetarian almond cookies contain milk, so are not vegan. But there are dairy-free ones out there, read the ingredients label.
