Vegetarian Chinese Takeaway Stand
Food Court or Street Vendor
If you don't read Chinese characters, you'd better learn how to read the character for "vegetarian", as this place has no sign in English. It's a little food car on Pottinger Street, near the corner of Wellington Street, next to a medicinal tea stall.
The ladies at the stall offer vegetarian dim sum and sweets all day long, but the best time to visit is lunchtime, when you can get a lunchbox for about $12HK ($2US). The lunchbox comes with steamed white rice and your choice or mix of all dishes offered with it, including: bean curd, bean curd skin, celery, mushrooms, water chestnuts, lotus root, pumpkin, and bamboo shoots.
You also get a free bowl of soup with each lunch (usually sweet and watery), and the takeaway also offers plenty of sweet buns and glutinous rice snacks for dessert, starting around a quarter each!
There is no English menu but the employees speak English and you can always just point to what you want.
