New year, new healthy delivery services in Hong Kong. To be fair, a lot of these have been around a while, but until we looked into the matter we have to admit even we didn't know about many of them! We figure the information will be helpful to all those who have decided this is the year for healthier, fresher food.
Fortunately for us, the list of companies catering to wellbeing and virility is ever-growing. This list does not include the big dogs of the food delivery world like Deliveroo, as those listed below focus specifically on health.
Licking an apple for lunch and enduring the pain of a 61 day juice cleanse in an attempt to lose weight or stay healthy is so 2015–especially when vegetarian lunch boxes and meals tailored to your gym workout are available.

11. NOSH by Secret Ingredient
Whilst Secret Ingredient has officially closed, NOSH continues on the tradition of tailored, healthy meal prep and delivery. Read our NOSH review here.
NOSH offers the option of delivery of two or three nutritionally balanced meals a day (plus snacks), with meal plans available for two, three, four or five days. You can customise your meal delivery based on the number of daily calories you want to consume, from super low for slimming at 1,000 calories per day to 2,200 calories if you’re looking to pack on the muscle.
Low carb plans are HKD$200 per day for lunch and dinner, which can actually save you money if you are not out cheating on your meal plan.
12. Food Folk
Food Folk is one to keep an eye on. They use pastured meat and poultry, wild caught or sustainably farmed fish and locally farmed veggies.
Whilst currently only delivering to Wong Chuk Hang (yay for us!) and some clients elsewhere on the Island - contact them to see what they can do.
Our lunch deliveries have been on time, and the food was delicious and as advertised. The packaging was a mix of plant based compostables and plastic, and we approve of the option to not receive cutlery. Food Folk have just recently begun supplying Lunch Boxes to be sold through Green Common on Graham Street (where you can find the famous Beyond Burger patties).
13. Urban Health Foods
If you've made it this far down, we've saved the best until last!
A current favourite of the Foodie team (in part due to their quick and free delivery to Wong Chuk Hang), Urban Health Foods was founded in May 2017 and changes their menu every day. The dishes are often star quinoa and red rice and are a good size with plenty of flavour. They offer soup and salad, and they usually have a discount code available on the website.
As well as being delicious, the packaging is environmentally concientious - except! - we wish they would stop giving us a plastic container with our free chocolate!
We will continue to test their menu (for your benefit of course) and will update when needed
