With less than two weeks to go until Taste of Hong Kong presented by Standard Chartered 2017, our food-loving city is buzzing with excitement for the biggest, hottest dining festival of the year, taking place at Central Harbourfront between 16–19 March.
We're not anticipating good food – we're anticipating great food. We're talking about food that celebrates a year's worth of achievements from our city's most beloved chefs, representing the industry's top bars and restaurants. Hong Kong's affection for food and dining out, combined with the wealth of culinary talent in our city, suggests that the best is really what we deserve and what we'll get. From uni and truffle to lobster, Wagyu and caviar, the newly announced list of this year's participating restaurants and dishes does not disappoint.
