This is on Johnston Road just next to Wan Chai MTR exit A3. There for another week or so. Turn left out the exit A3 and it’s just there.
An alert reader pointed out to us that Sooo Vegi closed their branch at Shell Street in Fortress Hill. In the window is a written note saying ‘See you in Wan Chai’. Management have just given us details of the re-opening at the new venue.
[Update: On occasionally checking since this post was originally published, Eric Kayser have not added to the additional labelling mentioned below. Questions sent to Eric Kayser re this subject by email have not been answered by them]
As mentioned in the second posting made re Eric Kayser we sent come questions to them re labeling of ingredients in each product. We were given prompt replies to our questions by Cristophe Vrignaud. Mr Vrignaud is the Chief Operation Officer for Eric Kayser here in HK. This is what he had to say.
[Update – it transpires the labelling mentioned below isn’t as clear as it could be. e.g. the leven used in their products is made with honey]
There will be no misrepresenting Eric Kayser bakery as a vegan or any other sort of vegetarian utopia on this website. However they have responded constructively to some feedback sent their way. The story goes like this…
==Note that since publishing this article, inconsistent info has been received on which items are vegan suitable. Hazards are rice occasionally being made with milk, other dishes possibly made with cow ghee. If vegan, ask each time you visit.==
Khalsa Diwan Sikh Temple in Wan Chai offer free vegetarian food daily to the community. It’s also very tasty eats. The food offered is a combo of lacto and vegan grade vegetarian food. Being Indian vegetarian food, no egg is used. On attending with two others it was a delight to be given an eating tray and served dahl, salad, rice and chapati (and plenty of it). All tasted great but anyone on a dairy free diet should note sometimes the rice is cooked with milk (it’s always worth asking in case). The lacto vegetarian in the group was also given some other dishes that contained cow milk.
