SOHOFAMA is where urban farming meets comfort Chinese cuisine for the Hong Kong of today. SOHOFAMA’s goal in any of its projects is to raise awareness for healthier living through serving good, chemical-free food, including locally grown ingredients which support the community, and organic ingredients, which support the body. Drawing on the Chinese tradition, we have created seasonal herbal soup selections, designed to suit a range of wellness needs of the urban dweller. Our menu is carefully balance to reflect both the old and the new with some dishes reflecting childhood favorites, while others celebrate the multiculturalism of today's HK society in dishes, and absolutely no MSG or chicken powder. Instead, we use freshly grown herbs for taste and slow cooked chicken broth to fully enhance flavours.
SOHOFAMA 只用無化學成份的食材，希望能大力推廣及使用本地資源，同時鼓勵及推動社區的健康飲食文化。SOHOFAMA 所提供的中式健康小菜及湯水除了將餐廳外的自家迷你莊園所種植的農作食材帶到餐枱上外，還邀請了專業中醫師設計一系列帶豐富藥用功效的湯水，確保食客能享用最新鮮及無添加的美味小菜。SOHOFAMA的菜單反映了舊式和新式的炮製方法，亦有香港人童年最愛，還有反影今天多文化的香港的新穎菜餚。

We hear the term “farm to table” thrown a lot lately, but we’ve done the opposite. We’ve brought the table to the farm! Our mini farm is the outdoor garden area of the restaurant, where we are currently starting to grow our own vegetables, in pots, along walls, on trolleys… wherever we can! We hope that this edible garden will help to people to think more about where their food comes from, and maybe inspire them to also start their own urban farm or garden.
