a healthy indulgence

Our roots come from Fitness! 

CrossFit Asphodel (located next door) has been our way of sharing our passion for helping Hong Kong get fit since 2010.

Fitness, however, is only half of the story. We are excited to bring a cozy, family-friendly eatery offering nutritious food and drinks to fuel your active lifestyle.

from micro to macro

Asphodeli cares for each individuals body and soul by using the cleanest and most natural ingredients. 

All products are free from additives, dairy / milk, gluten and refined sugars. 

We place as much care and love to each of you, each food and drink, as much as we love the environment - all food packaging materials are biodegradable, we even printed with plant-based ink. 

We hope we can inspire you to spread this consciousness to other parts of your daily life.
