Year of the Veg

Ovolo Hotels is going vegetarian across all its restaurants, bars and food services for an entire year. The ‘Year of the Veg’ is inspired by climate and environmental change. From October 1st (World Vegetarian Day) the hotel will focus on plant-based cuisine and will give guests the opportunity to enjoy meat-free meals, made from locally-sourced produce. 

Veda, at Ovolo Central was Hong Kong’s first vegetarian hotel restaurant and its cuisine focuses on using fresh ingredients, giving a modern twist to vegetarian cuisine. As a result it has paved the way for its sister restaurants. Komune, at Ovolo Southside will soon be launching its new restaurant concept that will be fully vegetarian. Room service menus, will also follow the “Year of the Veg” concept, and guests can enjoy an array of vegetarian dishes in-room.

Commenting on this new direction, Ovolo Group’s Founder and CEO, Girish Jhunjhnuwala, said,

“Dining out – enjoying quality food and wine with good company – is one of life’s greatest pleasures. We want to be conscious about what we’re consuming and practice sustainability as much as we can because we believe this can have an enormous impact on the environment and humanity at large. To that end, we’re evolving or food offerings so that our guests can continue enjoying great dining experiences in a more sustainable manner.”

This is another strep towards reducing the hotel’s environmental footprint. Ovolo has already eliminated single-use plastic bathroom amenities, replaced plastic straws, and are using reusable woven bags for in room slippers.
