I have a new favourite place! Life Organic Restaurant and Bar in Hong Kong rocks! Their menu is super healthy and creative and the setting is funky and fresh. The restaurant spreads over three levels with great seating on the top floor in their rooftop garden and attractive tables at street level for people watching. I can highly recommend the African Sweet Potato Stew made with organic quinoa, smoked tofu, coconut, sweet potato, tomato, organic beer, fresh herb, roasted peanuts and Pilli Pilli sauce, and the Layers of Vegetables consisting of marinated and roasted eggplant, red pepper, zucchini, yellow pepper, sweet potato, artichoke hearts, basil pesto and a tomato cashew cream sauce. Organic beer and wine are also on offer although I didn’t find my samplings anything to rave about. What does need raving about though is the variety and deliciousness of the sweets and savouries available for takeaway I couldn’t resist my all-time favourite dessert of carrot cake and, although not what I’d ordinarily expect, Life does a pretty good version with organic whole grains and a deliciously sweet topping of mixed seeds. Both the Organic Flapjack Slice and Organic Apple Bread both deserve a thumbs up. A variety of sugar free, vegan and gluten free options are also available. There is a small selection of organic products such as nuts and grains in a small market area at the front of the premises. I can’t wait to get back to Hong Kong to sample their brunch menu. This place is definitely yum!!!
