If a trip to Japan is on your mind, why not start with a little taste of Japan right here in Hong Kong? In conjunction with the JRA Trophy taking place in the second week of November, Happy Wednesday is transforming into Japan Night on 8, 15 and 22 November 2017 at Happy Valley Racecourse! You can look forward to a host of Japanese-themed food and entertainment.

Japanese eats

On offer trackside are a tantalising array of Japanese dishes, including roasted ox tongue with shichimi ($55), Japanese beef offal with miso ($55), salt and pepper chicken cartilage skewers ($65), teriyaki chicken wings ($65), yakitori minced chicken ball skewers ($50), pan-fried bean puffs with spring onion, seaweed and cheese ($48), deep-fried beef croquettes with curry sauce ($48) and baked seafood mornay in crab shell ($55).

And what would a Japan Night be without the likes of sake and sake cocktails? It just wouldn’t be right, so get yourself a traditional refreshment at the trackside Bar Corner on the first floor to complement the array of delicious Japanese dishes. You can take home a delicate Kirin dish for the kitchen when you enjoy a combo set that includes one trackside bite paired with two pints of frozen beer, exclusively available at Happy Wednesday. And with each beer purchased, you’ll earn yourself a festive Japanese fan called a uchiwa to complete the theme and cool you down after watching the excitement on the track.
