Being adventurous, exploring and opening our eyes and minds globally are how our Foodies spend most of their time. Seeing this connection, we partnered up with Airbnb for an event last month.
If you’re not familiar with them already, Airbnb offers unique accommodation at a range of prices so whether it’s an apartment for a night, a castle for a week or a villa for a month you’re looking for, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences around the world. We could think of no better place to talk about traveling than at Honi Honi Tiki Cocktail Lounge. Under the influence of their Polynesian inspired deco and lush green terrace, we were taken to greener places as we sipped on their signature cocktails and shared tips on our top foodie spots around the world. Along with a list of great accommodation spots, there was also a quiz where our Foodies puzzled over with a couple of rum cocktails.
In addition to the banging cocktails, Pomegranate catering also dished up some outstanding canapés, including quail eggs wrapped in asparagus, salmon marinated in beetroot and mini pulled pork sliders marinated in chipotle and coffee. The addition of coffee enhanced the flavour of the pork with a clean aftertaste and we thoroughly all enjoyed the Eastern-Mediterranean influences the Pomegranate team brought with them.
With all the talk of travels, Airbnb graciously provided their handy toothbrushes and t-shirts to ensure readiness for our next international excursion. If you are preparing for your next holiday and have never used Airbnb before, we have a great deal for first timers where you can get US$25 off your next trip if you sign up via Foodie www.airbnb.com/foodiehk
