Kan Kee Vegetarian
Bowrington Road, on the cusp of Wan Chai and Causeway Bay, is a good example of how wet markets have evolved over the years. Outdoor butchers, fishmongers and grocers surround the wet market complex itself, which houses the cooked food stalls. Kan Kee Vegetarian is one of the most famous. Before World War II, Kan Kee was a fishball noodles stall but when the family business was handed over to the eldest daughter, a vegetarian, it began to serve vegetarian fare instead. The neighborhood clientele gamely came to give the new menu a go and the veggie dishes went down a treat, with loyal customers slowly becoming part of the story behind the stall. ?Mr. Leung?s stew,? for example, is named after a businessman who comes twice a week to order the same simple veggie dish. With no MSG and minimal oil, salt and sugar, the dishes are naturally flavorsome and sweet, owing to the fresh ingredients from the market downstairs. Little wonder that the stall is popular with nuns and models alike. And due to a regular clientele of strict Buddhists, dishes can be made without garlic, chives or onions, none of which are considered vegetarian. Lunch sets ($30) include a selection of three dishes, rice and soup while dinner is a la carte.
