Healthy eating is a relatively new concept in Hong Kong. After all, the old saying has it that Cantonese eat anything with four legs that isn't a table and anything that flies that isn't an airplane. And frying and similar forms of cooking are staples of Hong Kong kitchens.
Many of the city's best hotels take healthy food seriously, whether it's serve up sky high in the dizzy heights of the Ritz-Carlton's Lounge & Bar or down by the water at Harbourside in the InterContinental or – most exclusively – in the kitchen at Gaddi's in The Peninsula where there is no menu: simply tell the chef exactly what you want to eat. Talk about service!
So, whether you are in search of a healthy option in Hong Kong at breakfast, lunch, teatime, dinner or somewhere in between, there's an option just waiting, be it Chinese, Indian, vegetarian or a bit of a mixture. A lot of food is flown in, and there are a growing number of organic farms in the New Territories supplying the city's restaurants.
