Numerous people have been in touch lamenting the closure of Popular Vegetarian (Western District, HK Island) at the turn of the calendar year. Popular Vegetarian was an all vegan, family run, Chinese neighbourhood restaurant. As well as great tasting meals they were also very reasonably priced. Sadly missed & fondly remembered. Being a victim to exorbitant rent increases at lease renewal time is an all too familiar story in HK. Influenced in this case by the opening of Sai Ying Pun MTR accelerating rent increases even further?
