Nothing seems to make more sense than following the advice of those top flavour makers who spend their days ensuring food tastes good. They would know, right? So we asked them. We got the dishes and the restaurants that have delighted the palates of international super chefs like Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Heston Blumenthal, Pierre Hermé, Alain Ducasse and many more, as well as those local culinary heroes who live and breathe the 852 and have their faves that they return to again and again. You’ll no doubt agree with a lot of them, and then find yourself heading out to those you haven’t yet treated your own taste buds to. This really is the ultimate collection of dining advice for everything from fine dining to small, family-run delights here in Hong Kong.
We also have a Foodie Foray into Guilin by bicycle that you won’t want to miss, as well as our usual hearty and delicious recipes from My Little Hong Kong Kitchen and Olive Oly Kitchen. We do battle with cheesecake in this issue’s Food War to discover if newcomer The Cheesecake Factory has a better-tasting competitor here in Hong Kong. And as per usual, Hannah Chung guides us through her zero waste challenge and delights us with the perils that come along with seeking green solutions in this often resistant city of ours.
