5 Decadent Restaurants In Hong Kong For Healthy Fine Dining

Fine dining doesn’t have a great rep when it comes to healthy eating. Synonymous with indulgent and unsustainable ingredients, buttery bases and creamy sauces, and indifference towards dietary requirements, choosing an upmarket restaurant when you’re vegan, have allergies, or are watching your weight can be tricky to navigate. Hong Kong’s healthy food scene has transcended the barrier, with fine dining restaurants around the city jumping on the wellness bandwagon to clean up their act. From Michelin-starred wellness menus to elevated vegan dishes, these are the top restaurants in Hong Kong for healthy fine dining.

Nectar

Nectar is the brainchild of plant-based restaurant prodigy Chef Peggy Chan, who creates inventive vegan tasting menus and dishes that quickly become cult favourites of those in the know. Classic dishes like the popcorn hedgehog mushrooms and tandoori flatbread remain on the menu, while new additions include the guilt-free vegan cheeseboard. Lunch and the evening tasting menus are not to be missed and don’t forget to try the elixirs, mocktails and organic wine served in a minimalist plant-filled space.

Caprice

The three Michelin star restaurant at the Four Seasons Hong Kong is perhaps an unlikely candidate for ‘healthy’ fine dining, but the Well Feeling set menu allows you to indulge in a lighter way. Focused on nutrient-dense dishes, this multi-course menu is an experience for all foodies who want well-sourced, premium ingredients and perfectly proportioned portions.
