You may have heard that Hong Kong media platforms have recently come together to launch United We Dine, which encourages Hong Kongers in good health to eat out and support local businesses. It’s been a really tough time for our city’s restaurant scene, with both small and large restaurants closing and lots of jobs at stake. So, if you are healthy and feel comfortable, consider checking out the limited-time menus that are part of United We Dine (on until 30 April 2020) or other well-priced menus now on offer.
Duddell’s offers special United We Dine menus, but we recently visited to try their all-day dim sum menu ($238 per person) and five-course all-day set menu ($368/person, minimum 2 people), available in their fourth-floor salon (no end date).
This Michelin-starred restaurant, helmed by Chef Li Man-Lung, likely doesn’t need much introduction, as it’s been serving up stylish, authentic Cantonese food for several years now, but it’s a good time to try some of their best dishes with these special deals.
All-day dim sum menu
Enjoy a selection of Duddell’s best dim sum (one piece each) along with a glass of house wine or selected cocktail (+$120). Available weekdays from 12pm and weekends from 3pm.

- Spinach dumpling with fungus

All-day set menu
With this five-course set, you’ll get a modern take on some Cantonese classics along with a glass of house wine or selected cocktail (+$120).

The salon, which opens up to a vibrant terrace, is a particularly lovely space for having a leisurely meal. Enjoy it now and as the weather gets warmer.
