Grassroots Pantry and Prune

Although modernity’s global reach has long been a recurring theme in my research, I am still overwhelmed by the sheer scale and brutality of its metabolism. Walking through the packed alleys of Sheung Wan, one is reminded of the speciesism and dominance on which human society is still based, how much we remain in our infancy if I am allowed to speak Star Trekian. At such times, it is comforting to be able to trade all the windows with their roasted birds and Chinese sausages for a 100% vegetarian greenhouse-meets-garage restaurant serving some of the best food I had in a long time.
