Eat Pasta for a Cause in Lan Kwai Fong

It seems like there’s a day for everything: World Doughnut Day, World Dog Day, World Coffee Day. But World Pasta Day is easily one of the best. And in Hong Kong, over 22 restaurants are celebrating this month, donating some of their proceeds to the Foodlink Foundation.

World Pasta Day is celebrated on 25 October, and has been since its inception in 1995 at the World Pasta Congress (we’re serious). It was created to honour all things pasta and promote its “cultural and culinary importance.” Obviously, the best way to honour this sacred tradition is with a generous plate of freshly made pasta.

And it’s never been easier. Five restaurants near Lan Kwai Fong are participating in the week-long pasta party. They’ve each created one special, limited edition pasta that will be served from the 25 – 31 October, 2018. And they’re all donating 10 per cent of the proceeds to the Foodlink Foundation, a local charity that provides those in need with hot, healthy meals.

If you want to eat well while doing good, head to one of these five restaurants and tuck in!
