All about organics

Word spreads fast when a new delicatessen enters the organic vegan scene. In a no-through road in Sai Ying Pun, right next door to Peggy Chan’s restaurant Grassroots Pantry, is Chan’s latest venture Prune Organic Deli and Workshop. Chan’s delicious vegetarian menu is nourishing and yummy, and now devotees of Grassroots Pantry can learn a lot about cooking vegetables with maximum taste and style. It was just as much the need for more space to hold the increasing demand on their food products, as well as to allow a flow of casual foot traffic through the neighbourhood that saw Prune eventuate. “We are now able to serve an incredibly nourishing breakfast menu which is personally my favourite meal of the day,” Peggy says.

Prune is a warm and earthy environment which is packed most mornings of the week with people devouring all sorts of healthy things such as home-made oats, raw Bircher muesli, and invigorating juices and smoothies with reassuring names like The Enricher and The Cleanse. There’s always bags of smoked tahini kale chips, seasonal jams, gluten-free and vegan fresh baked goods plus home-made tomato sauce, and there are workshops here that involve many dishes with a vegetarian twist, preparation of raw food and its benefits, plus practical household kitchen advice. Peggy also invites guest chefs and hosts gardening and holistic workshops.

Prune Organic Deli and Workshop, 14 Fuk Sau Lane, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong. Tel: (+852) 2873 3353.


For Grassroots Pantry home-made products head to Prune or the East Island Markets in Quarry Bay on Hong Kong Island. Grassroots Pantry, 12 Fuk Sau Lane, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong. Tel: (+852) 2873 3353.

While on the topic of healthy, holistic food check out LocoFama, just across the street run by Hong Kong local Steven Wu. This restaurant and organic shop sells everything from coconut oils, organic fruits and vegetables, nuts, and organic flours, to organic beauty products. But there’s something else about Steven I love… he rescues homeless dogs in the area and cares for them until owners are found for them.

LocoFama, G/F 9-13 Fuk Sau Lane, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong. Tel: (+852) 6312 1068.
