Organised by the Hong Kong Tourism Board, the inaugural edition of the Hong Kong Great November Feast is a month-long programme that celebrates the Hong Kong culinary scene in all its glory. Every day for 30 days, indulge in a series of gourmet happenings, from foodie street fairs in Lan Kwai Fong and Queen’s Road East, to signature tasting menus at top restaurants around town, to specially priced wining and dining offers, to grand wine- and beer-themed events including Beertopia and the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair. There’s something to tickle just about everyone’s taste buds during this incredible food lover’s extravaganza.
Fans of Chinese cuisine will be familiar with the annual Best of the Best Culinary Awards, which are dished out to the best Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong for their delicious, innovative craftsmanship in the kitchen. All in all this year, 40 winning dishes were selected in the categories of egg, pork, dim sum (rice rolls) and crab.
From now until 30 November 2016, diners have the opportunity to enjoy these award-winning dishes at a sensational 20 per cent discount. This means you can sample the likes of steamed and sautéed egg with crabmeat and sea urchin with mini gold fish dumplings at The Excelsior Hong Kong’s Yee Tung Heen, fried Spanish Ibérico pork loin with apple and apple cider vinegar at Cordis, Hong Kong’s Ming Court, mantis prawn and mixed mushroom rice rolls at Choi Fook Royal Banquet and chilli crab at Rainbow Seafood Restaurant on Lamma Island.
