Restaurant Review: LN Fortunate Coffee
Food: The food here is so unique, you won't be able to find anything similar in other vegan restaurants in Hong Kong! They have the most common Hong Kong snacks such as egg waffles and satay, they have comfort foods such as hotdogs and burgers, they have warm food such as soup noodles and curry rice, and they have desserts ranging from matcha cupcakes to egg-less waffles! LN Fortunate Coffee takes gold in the category of innovation, and it's an ingenious ways to attract non-vegans to try something new. I don't think I've ever tasted anything at this restaurant that wasn't enjoyable!
Price: However, the price for the portions at LN Fortunate Coffee is slightly disappointing. Although the food tastes incredible, I feel as if I am not getting my money's worth when all I see in my $100 dollar burger is one meagre slice of soy beef. They do offer set meals that are more reasonable and come with a side of orange juice, potato fries, and a salad, however, I personally think that the main dish could be bigger. The same goes for the appetizers and snacks that come in quite small portions but are priced at around $50 per dish.
Environment: Vegan food, metal straws, free water refill, a bathroom, and free wifi...what more could you ask for? LN Fortunate Coffee is probably one of the most comfortable vegan restaurants that exist in Hong Kong, and I commonly see people sitting there to socialize, have meetings, do work on their laptops - pretty much anything! They are also quite sustainable in their practices: you can refill water as many times as you want, and if you want something sweeter or something more caffeinated, whatever the drink is, it will either come with no straw or a stainless steel straw.
Location: Only about a two-minute amble from the Sai Ying Pun MTR station (Exit B2), LN Fortunate Coffee is extremely convenient, and it's also a great place to go if you want to get work done while snacking on some delicious vegan food/drinks.
Staff: I love visiting this restaurant, because the staff are always extremely kind and welcoming - they're always ready to take your order, listen to feedback, or have a conversation! Although they mainly speak Chinese, they are very patient even if you don't. Once I changed my cupcake order a good three times in the span of a minute, and they were still okay with it!
Overall, LN Fortunate Coffee is a must visit if you're in Hong Kong. Every time I go there's always a new dish on the menu that hasn't been done before, and the although the portions may be modest, the food never disappoints. Even if you're just craving a small snack or dessert, you can stop by very conveniently; whatever you're looking for, they have it all!
