Health-conscious restaurant concept Orka opens in Hong Kong

A new health-conscious restaurant, Orka, has opened in Hong Kong, located in the heart of Central. 

The restaurant aims to make wellness a “tasty, affordable, and socially responsible affair”, providing an inclusive environment for customers with different dietary preferences.

Orka, which means “energy” in Swedish, was created by concept creators and wellness professionals led by Aswini Rachel and Nobin John.

The signature dishes from its all-day a-la-carte menu include starters like Aqua-Spark salad, made from seaweed, organic chives, and gochujang, finished with vegan herb-marinated jackfruit or applewood smoked salmon; Barley mushroom soup made from made with a combination of barley and mushroom, flavoured with aromatic spices and served with vegetables and vegan, whole-wheat toast.

For the main course, the restaurant offers traditional dishes like Tikka Masala, Mutton Rogan Josh, Chapala Pulusu, Mushroom Palak, and Dal Tadka. 

Customers on the go can grab the cafe’s choices of plant-based or regular burgers and sandwiches, fruit-based booster bowls, and kefir smoothies.

“Hong Kong people are health-conscious and become more concerned about food sustainability, socially-responsibility and quality, paving the way for mindful eating,” said John.

“As a holistic health-promoting enterprise, we want to bring a new and unique wellness space with relaxing yet healthy offerings to fulfil their needs.” 

He added that the company believes that there is huge potential for plant-based, green food products in the Hong Kong market.

“When talking about the plant-based diet, it does not need to be an all-or-nothing approach. Even if a non-vegan shifts their plate towards a 75 per cent plant-based diet, that itself will contribute hugely to making this world a better place and reducing carbon footprint.” 

In addition to the cafe, the flagship also serves as a retail space to showcase wellness products served in the restaurant. The products include an array of coffees, tea blends, supplements, and baking goods.
