Long Men Lou Vegetarian Restaurant, Chi Lin Nunnery - Diamond Hill, Hong Kong

A world away from the hustle and bustle and skyscrapers that Hong Kong is renowned for, lies the Chi Lin Nunnery.

Chi Lin Nunnery is a large temple complex, was established in 1934, and houses Buddhist relics, lotus ponds, and the Nan Lian garden, a beautiful and scenic public garden.

There is also a vegetarian restaurant at the Chi Lin Nunnery, Long Men Lou, which offers dishes that are free from MSG, plus low in fat, sugar and salt. 

Mixed entree platter

Their signature appetiser dish is a taste of five small dishes, all with quite interesting textures. 

Braised shitake mushrooms 

Stuffed bean curd rolls

Sweet and sour bean curd

A bit like a vegetarian take on sweet and sour pork, with plenty of capsicum scattered throughout the dish, along with fresh chunks of pineapple.

Walnut dessert

Quite enjoyed this creamy and sweet dessert soup. 

Overall, a lovely and fresh buddhist vegetarian meal in the nice surroundings of the temple grounds.
