Wanchai adds another vegan friendly cafe that serves mediterranean food on Moon Street and it’s called Maya Cafe.
Be blown away by the colorful fruits and veggies on display at their counter, which includes a selection of raw desserts – mango mousse, chocolate tart, and chocolate balls.
Seated near the entrance, we were checking out the specials on the board as well as the menu. My companion for the night insists we have to get desserts…
Appetizer was a bowl of dahl soup – not so mediterranean but rich with flavors.
Next, the main course – a Mezze Platter. Served in tasting portions, not intended to fill your tummy. From left: hummus, babaghanoush (cannot really taste the eggplant – a mild version perhaps?) greek salad, yoghurt, falafel, and feta cheese with 4 slices of multi-grain bread. We also ordered a side dish: Potato Croquettes, not bad even though it looked a little burnt in the picture.
Mango mousse was refreshingly fruity as if you’re savoring actual mango. Chocolate mousse was not bad too but I might just be biased since I love chocolate.
Friendly owners Meenah and Tina posed for a photo opp just before they close for the evening.
I would like to go back and try their fruit juice selection next time. A set dinner costs around $188++.
Nonetheless, most vegetarian restaurants in Hong Kong serve Chinese cuisines so it’s good to now have a Mediterranean option that is healthy – think organic, raw, and vegetarian in a no frills and cosy cafe.
