Hong Kong’s Healthy and delicious dining spots to try this Winter!
We see you, Sai Kung. Little Cove Espresso is an Australian and Mediterranean-inspired café that’s practically worth the trip just for the coffee. The concept has been around for a while, but it has recently moved into a huge new digs, with plenty of space to kick back on the weekend – after hiking in the country park, perhaps? The café caters to all sorts, including vegetarian, vegan and grain-free eaters. Classic smashed avocado with beetroot hummus and dukkah, and coconut flour-based blueberry muffins are some of the staff favourites. It also make its own special blend of coffee, making it a perfect place to recharge.

The festive season left you a bit sluggish? Start off the New Year on the lighter side with the help of bowls, nutrition-dense smoothies and vegan lattes at Bear’s Lab on Stanley Street. Bowls are made fresh-to-order and packed with natural superfoods including acai, spirulina, chia seeds and fresh fruit (we particularly loved the blended spinach base that we hadn’t tried before) while the cafe’s signature vegan lattes come in flavours such as turmeric, charcoal and avocado. Bear’s Lab juices are also all-natural with no artificial sweeteners and are made from fruits and vegetables that have been carefully sourced to ensure nutritional value and quality.

Opening just in time to ring in 2019, Estiatorio Keia is a brand new Greek restaurant with a decidedly ancient feel to it. With an elegant decor and food inspired by Grecian culture, Keia has drummed up an authentic menu that’s perfect for sharing. Indulge in heartier Greek appetizers like tzatziki and hummus served with warm pita bread, grilled meatballs, and saganaki cheese. Or make your way to the lighter raw bar featuring a variety of fresh seafood, from tuna and salmon to sea bream sashimi and Greek ceviche. Dine like a deity this month.
