It’s not often that we rave about vegetarian restaurants here at Hong Kong Tatler Dining, but we are rather in love with Maya Café. Located on the quiet and quaint Moon Street in Wan Chai, this Mediterranean-styled café serves organic vegetarian cuisine. A set lunch menu (priced at HK$118) includes a fresh juice of the day (ours was beetroot, carrot, apple, celery and lime); a starter of soup or dal; a main; and a dessert. Our pumpkin and carrot soup was light on salt, but heavy on spices and herbs, making it a thick and palate-whetting start to the meal. For mains, we opted for a mezze platter and a quinoa salad. The mezze platter included a delicious hummus; a baked and crumbly falafel; a rather sweet and not-smoky-enough baba ghanoush; and for HK$10 extra, a bit of feta. We also loved the quinoa salad, which was served with a cucumber and celery slaw in yoghurt dressing; as well as another side of red cabbage and beet. For dessert, the gluten-free orange muffin had a rather unappetisingly moist texture, but the flavour was delicious, especially in combination with the coconut and brown rice pudding. All in all, a healthy, filling and delicious meal in a charming venue.
