What to Expect
If you’ve never been to Taste of Hong Kong presented by HSBC – Where Hong Kong’s Food Lovers Feast before, it can be a bit daunting. It’s essentially a playground for chefs and foodies, so come with an open mind and a lot of cash. Dishes start at HK$50, and each restaurant will offer a choice of four options. They’ll usually offer up some of their tried-and-true classics, which is a great chance to sample some iconic dishes! Put perhaps more excitingly, they will also feature at least one Taste Festival Exclusive and one limited edition ‘Icon Dish’, which will be announced closer to the festival.

What’s Cooking
The line-up this year is looking good! Taste of Hong Kong has pulled in the city’s newest restaurants, like eco-conscious John Anthony, Jiangnan-favourite Old Bailey, Nordic experts Flyng Elk and traditional Greek spot Artemis and Apollo. Some tried-and-true favourites are also participating, like Hoi King Heen (modern Cantonese), bia hoi-inspired Chôm Chôm (bia hoi-inspired Vietnamese), Francis (Middle Eastern), Haku (modern Japanese), Pici (rustic pastas) and Zuma (Izakaya-styled). For something really different, keep an eye out for Sausage Commitment by Okra, a passion project dedicated to the beauty of fat, smoke, patience and meat.
