Something like this never happened in history! For 365 days, Ovolo Hotels will serve vegetarian menus across the hotel chains in Australia and Hong Kong.
This move is inspired by the success of Alibi- a vegan restaurant at one of the group’s properties in Sydney, Australia.
Luxury group Ovolo hotels recently ditched meat from their menus at its bars, restaurants and food services at its luxurious eight properties in Australia and Hong Kong. Dubbed Ovolo’s “Year of the Veg ” is the initiative that will bring a variety of vegetarian dishes to the group’s menus, made with regionally and ethically sourced ingredients whenever possible.
Ovolo Hotels founder and CEO Girish Jhunjhunwala said, “We want to be conscious about what we eat and practice sustainability to our utmost. We believe this step can have a massive impact on humanity and the environment at large.
The Ovolo Woolloomooloo in 2018 in Sydney, Australia opened Alibi Bar & Kitchen. It is a vegan restaurant developed in a partnership with chef Mathew Kenny. On the ground floor of the hotel is the first in Australia to operate an entirely plant-based restaurant on its premises.
After the success of Alibi, Jhunjhnuwala, who is a vegetarian himself decided to ditch meat from their menus at other Ovolo properties.”
Further, he added, “We are going to do it for a year and hope we continue it. We will see how it goes.”
This isn’t the first time the Ovolo Hotel is offering a fully green theme menu in its restaurants. Before Alibi they opened Veda eatery at Ovolo Central. Within no time it became Hong Kong’s first vegetarian hotel restaurant.
It opened last year and serves a tasty and healthy mix of aloo gobi and corn khichdi. At the same time, Alibi at Ovolo Woolloomooloo served delicacies in vegan cuisine like pan-fried tempeh and kimchi dumplings.
