Here’s what you missed in 2014
It’s been a whirlwind of a year for Foodie Club and our events have taken us from one food-coma inducing outlet to the next across Hong Kong. The beginning of the year saw us as authentic Vietnamese street-dwellers as we got our Bia Hoi on at Chôm Chôm, imitating those in Naples with pizza at Motorino, getting our fill of Spanish tapas at Zafran, tasting an array of Chinese delights at Zen Too and learning all about grass-fed beef from Wild Grass. In an attempt to be hands on, we were making pasta at Doppio Zero, building our very own pies at Café Deco Pizzeria and learning to brew the concoctions we had always dreamed of at HK Brewcraft; not even mentioning the full- on cooking classes at The Mixing Bowl and Towngas Cooking Centre!
Our Foodie Table launched this year, which consists of smaller groups of Foodies experiencing unique tastings at various restaurants. We got a behind-the-scenes education at Blue Butcher, a mindful eating evening at Chilli Fagara and a communal beast feast at Linguini Fini.
It was certainly the year of the burger, and we introduced our Foodies to some gargantuan examples at Beef & Liberty and Big Jo’s as well as treating a select few to a burger lunch at MaxFoodLab. We got our party on with dangerously drinkable cocktails from Fatty Crab and Stone Nullah Tavern, got boozy playing ‘flip cup’ at Amazake and had Halloween fun with chips, guac and margaritas at Little Burro.
As expected, the highlight of the year was our Foodie Forks Awards, where over 30 F&B venues won awards for 14 categories including Best Restaurant, Best New Bar, Outstanding Reliable Favourite and Chef of the Year. We celebrated all the awards with our annual party and dished out the prizes, dancing the night away with the industry’s top movers and shakers.
As the year came to the end, we whisked a large group of Foodie Clubbers to a secret location with a hidden menu for our first Secret Supper Club. It was the first of many interesting events to come, so be sure to join Foodie Club to get regular updates on upcoming events, giveaways and great Foodie deals.
