Hong Kong’s famous Tian Tan ‘Big Buddha’ might be perched up on top of a remote mountain on Lantau Island, but vegetarians are in luck because at the Po Lin Monastery next door, you can have a lovely meat-free meal. The monastery’s Vegetarian Kitchen is open 11:30 am to 4:30 pm on weekdays, and 11:30am to 7pm on weekends, serving up Chinese dishes such as tofu, spring rolls, dumplings, and fresh vegetables.
