Grab-N- Go eateries in central and western district

With the hectic lifestyle in Hong Kong, a growing number of grab and go eateries are cropping up in the neighbourhood to cater to our needs. It's summer time, you can give yourself a break from time to time. Yes you deserve it! Thankfully, no need to spend tons on a restaurant each time you go out. Whichever cuisine you like, there is a grab and go eatery near you. However even though convenient, a major concern of grab and go eateries is the use of takeaway packaging which may not always be environmentally friendly. We recommend bringing your own mealbox to the establishment to cut down on single use packaging. Here’s the lowdown on our favorite grab and go eateries in the Central & Western District:

1. Taku

Japanese take-out restaurant which serves delicious sushi, eel with rice, Japanese seared beef with rice and selection of salads. All rice is authentic Japanese pearl rice. The food is made to order and elegantly served in a bamboo takeout box. You can wash the box, dry it out for a day and use it for accessories.

Bring-your-own-mealbox: Accepted

Environmentally friendly packaging: Yes

Address: 36 Jervois Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

Opening Hours: Mon-Sat 11 am-8 pm, Sundays closed

Price Per Person: $100-200

2. Fete Up

According to co-founder William Tew, Fete Up was started with a vision to encourage people to eat a more balanced diet of veges, protein and carbs. They wanted to prove that such a diet doesn’t need to be bland and dull, and can also be affordable. Here, you can either order a signature bowl (eg the Omega Squat as pictured), or build your own bowl and pick the ingredients you want in your meal. They also sell a variety of delicious nut milks from the brand 137 degrees.

3. Chickpea

For Middle Eastern delicacies, freshly made hummus, pita pockets and salads, check out Chickpea at Central. You can choose your base - hummus bowls, salad bowls or pockets, add on your choice of protein, rice or slaw and top it up with a sauce. I tried the fish bowl and falafel wrap and would highly recommend it! They also cater for groups in excess of 10 persons, 24-hour pre order at a reasonable rate of HKD 98 per person.
