We can observe a couple of trends from the list of Foodie's ten most-read articles of 2015. The theme of drinking (both alcohol and coffee) remains top of mind for our readers (no surprises there); articles about outdoor bars, where to take a first time-drinker in Hong Kong, the best coffee shops and where to find the best afternoon tea all consistently reigned in 2015.
Vegetarianism is obviously on the rise in Hong Kong, with the Best Vegetarian Restaurants in Hong Kong coming in at number three. Michelin stars are contentious though intriguing to us all, and the results of this year's distribution was the fourth most read (despite being released fairly recently in October). The top piece, however, perfectly sums up Hong Kong, and alfresco drinking in our beloved vertical city is a interest we never want to see die.
