The weather is steaming hot again and the sun is out. Do you know what that means? Junk boat season is finally here! Gone are the shivering weekend brunches – we’re now getting bad suntans and knocking back heaps of water. Yay to summer in Hong Kong!

To stop ourselves from gorging exclusively on free-flow beer and wine, we need to plan accordingly for our summer junk boat trips. Read below for our top picks of the best junk catering options to feed your party this summer.

The best junk catering in Hong Kong

Catering over 200 junks each year, Shamrock is a leading caterer for the summer season, with multiple packages designed to stuff you tight. Shamrock’s BBQ menu invites a chef to cook for a minimum of 15 people (HKD250/hour for 5-hour minimum), serving up a selection of cold canapés, BBQ chicken, pork, and seafood, a choice of beef to sear on the barbie, Western- and Asian-style salads, and dessert. The price is dependent on the number of people and the chosen junk menu, so it’s best to coordinate with the friendly staff at Shamrock.

Bengal Brothers

Nothing goes better than junks and Indian food that can fit into the palm of your hand. Bengal Brothers’ kathi rolls are the perfect choice for junks to ensure you can handle both spicy bite-sized food in one hand and something alcoholic in the other. The Bay of Bengal Junk Menu (HKD188 pp) is a recommended option. Share cucumber and coconut koshimbir salad and sweet potato chaat, choose between chicken tikka, lamb seekh, achari paneer, and chickpea kathi rolls, and finish with a summer fruit chaat.
