Delicious, decadent and discounted: Hong Kong Restaurant Week
Hong Kong Restaurant Week on July 11-17 will let foodies indulge at Hong Kong's popular restaurants with special promotional prices.
More than 30 Hong Kong restaurants will offer three-course set menus priced at HK$158 for lunch and HK$298 for dinner. Michelin-starred restaurants add HK$100 for each star, which means dinner at a one-star restaurant is just HK$398 (plus service charges).
Not to be confused with the Springalicious Restaurant Week held at the end of April, this one is organized by Diningcity.com. The restaurant listings site has successfully generated 300,000 reservations at the Benelux Restaurant Week (including Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxemburg) and is now bringing the themed event to Asia.
All reservations for Hong Kong Restaurant Week have to be made online. Booking begins at 10 a.m. on June 22. Tables are expected to go fast.
“In other Restaurant Week cities, people literally set their alarms to be sure of snagging a spot at their top choices, with many making five or six reservations in one go,” said Onno Schreurs, Managing Director for China and Hong Kong of Diningcity.com.
“From experience, we know that the most popular restaurants will be booked up within minutes.”
After your meal, diss or give props to the restaurant by email and the one with the most positive feedback will win "Restaurant of the Week."
