Why I picked the Champagne Brunch at VEDA! We loved the plant forward vegetarian restaurant at the beautifully revamped Ovolo Hong Kong. Located in Central Mid Level: 2 Arbuthnot Road, Central, Hong Kong China.
VEDA has an expansive plant forward vegetarian menu that always has great dishes from around the world. They are constantly evolving and changing the menu which makes going an adventure. I love to see what new concoctions the chef comes up with. I think it is great that “Veda is committed to giving back to the Earth by minimizing waste in our kitchen, using sustainable materials and practices wherever possible.”
We went there on Mother’s Day and it was packed. I highly recommend reservations on holidays. We were greeted by Jomari who helped ease our hour long wait to be seated. She made sure that we have everything we needed, even once we were seated, she came to us from time to time to check on us. She went above and beyond and helped make the start to our brunch an enjoyable experience
VEDA has had a beautiful facelift! It used to be one floor with bars and a very limited seating. Recently they transformed the lobby space to a second floor for the restaurant offering more seating. The ambiance is great!
The food was exquisite; we weren’t sure what to expect with portion size but color us surprised we were all full just with the sharing plates! I really loved the Samosa Chaat and the Avocado & Pesto Paneer Dosa it had great flavor. My mom and aunt loved the sweet potato fries and hummus! What I really enjoy is VEDA’s take on wellness offering a low-carb wrap, flour naan & egg whites. A fun twist to a traditional favorite! Service did leave something to be desired. It could be the crowd was just too much.
For those who like to enjoy a drink with brunch the offered a great list free flow option. The 2 hour – free flow included any listed alcohol and great starters for a generous 598. Want to enjoy the food without the bubbles! The had a food only option that included soft drink, coffee, or tea for 388. We felt that either option could feed 2 people easily, I’d suggest ordering some sides for a party of 3+ so you guys can have room to enjoy other small plates on the menu.
