There’s nothing HKers like more than a little healthy competition… Whether its sleeping on the pavement to secure a limited edition handbag or being the first to get beyond the door of a hidden speakeasy, we’re not afraid to do what it takes to get what we want, when we want it. Well boys and girls, it’s time to get your game faces on… Restaurant Week is about to open for bookings and they’re offering Dim Sum & Then Some readers exclusive access to their online booking system starting TODAY at 10am, 3 FULL DAYS before it opens to the public (read on for the secret access code!).
Now a global phenomenon, happening in cities from Brussels to Bombay, Restaurant Week started in 1992 when Tim Zagat of the famed dining guides and iconic restaurateur Joe Baum enlisted NYC’s best restaurants to offer lunches for US$19.92 for one incredible week… Although meals are not priced quite as low as HK$20.14, Hong Kong Restaurant Week offers a rare opportunity to make online reservations at the town’s top tables and feast on a sublime three-course menu, starting from just HK$158 for lunch and HK$328 for dinner.
This worldwide foodie extravaganza is set to launch its 7th edition in Hong Kong, August 1 – 10, 2014, featuring many new hotspots, some tried and true favourites and even a few Michelin stars. Restaurants on the “Hot List” this summer include: impossible to get into speakeasy Stockton, SoHo’s sizzling steak frites spot La Vache, instant foodie favourite Fish & Meat, brand new Italian La Locanda, sizzling Greek Souvla, harbourside stunner Spasso, always amazing classics Blue Butcher and BLOOM, flavour-filled Peruvian Chicha, casual Hollywood Road hideaway Les Fils a Maman, Indonesian Michelin bib gourmand IR1968, primo pasta joints Doppio Zero and Divino Patio, Creole comfort food fav Restoration, and much-adored Italian Messina.
And this will not be just any old three-course menu you’ll be digging in to… Expect to see the top chefs in residence at each restaurant, using seasonal ingredients, and innovative menus, as Restaurant Week diners are encouraged to submit reviews of their experience and all participating venues are competing to be voted in as the city’s best spot.
All Restaurant Week reservations can be booked online and will open to the public on July 28. But as HK’s most savvy and in-the-know diners, Dim Sum & Then Some readers will have the chance to begin making Restaurant Week reservations starting this morning, Friday, July 25 at 10:00am.
