Taste of Hong Kong

Following success in London and 21 other cities, the Taste festival is coming to Hong Kong. If you don’t like to queue at no reservation restaurants, can’t get in to a hard to book venue or simply don’t have the cash for a blow out meal then this is great news.

A selection of the city’s top restaurants including Amber, Tin Lung Heen, Aberdeen Street Social, Arcane, Yardbird, Duddell’s, Serge et le Phoque and Tosca will present small plate signature dishes for the event in March.

 

 

These include Hokkaido scallops, sati jelly and avocado from Aberdeen Street Social (above left), Ebisu oyster with seaweed and shallots from Amber (below right), meatballs with egg yolk from Yardbird (above right), Barbecue Pork from Tin Lung Heen, Tiramisu with limoncello from Tosca (bottom left) and Dacquoise almond biscuit with vanilla cream at Serge et le Phoque (bottom right).

 

Expect to see star chefs including Richard Ekkebus from Amber, Shane Osborn of Arcane, Pino Lavarra from Tosca and Matt Abergel from Yardbird at the event. As well as an internationally acclaimed toque, chosen by the Hong Kong chefs, to be announced. Who will it be? Gordon Ramsay? Jamie Oliver? Nuno Mendez? The ubiquitous Ferran Adria? Watch this space.

Taste of Hong Kong will take place March 10th -13th. Tickets are on sale now.

How are you feeling today? A little fragile perhaps? The sad and cruel truth about getting into the festive spirit is that you’re likely to feel dreadful the next morning. Finding a failsafe hangover cure is like searching for the holy grail and throughout history the hunt has involved food and drink.

Apparently the Greeks favoured cabbage as a cure while the Romans chose sheep lungs and owl eggs. Altogether more palatable is Lemuel Benedict’s remedy: he ordered toast, poached eggs, bacon and Hollandaise sauce (and invented the Eggs Benedict) at the Waldorf Hotel, New York in 1894 following a heavy night.

Most recently, scientists at Sun Yet-Sen University in Guangzhou have found that a can of Sprite is the best way of dispensing with those dreaded morning after symptoms.

But what do Hong Kong chefs rely on to get them through the morning after?
