Hong Kong's top healthy restaurants

A return to wholesome foods is taking the city by storm.

In a world of constant high carb foods slathered in fat, it can be difficult to find quality healthy alternatives. These restaurants in Hong Kong, however, defy the odds by preparing healthy, rejuvenating meals that are still just as delectable.

Foxtail & Broomcorn

F&B just seem to take diners by surprise at every turn since its opening. First, an unlikely name for a Chinese noodle restaurant. Second, its marble-clad counter, Tiffany-green seatings, hand-painted murals say ‘art gallery’ more than, well, noodles. Third, the daily menu featuring additive-free noodles covers everything from vegetarian to low carb choices. The result? A long line of diners waiting for more. www.foxtailandbroomcorn.com
