Cautious signs of Hong Kong’s reopening can be felt, with the flight ban on nine countries being lifted today. If you’re still in town, why not make the most of it with a visit to the food and drink happenings we’ve rounded up below? Better yet, savour the fruits of collaboration between two of Hong Kong’s top chefs with Off Menu At Home, this week featuring a six-course menu by Ho Lee Fook’s ArChan Chan and May Chow of Little Bao and Happy Paradise, delivered straight to your door.
Check out of the work day by checking in at Little Bao, which has just introduced lunch sets catering for one to two people during weekdays. Diners can pick from the 48-hour chicken rice bowl combo (HK$158), laden with three-yellow chicken thigh that’s been brined, slow-cooked and broiled over the course of two days, alongside a mini Caesar salad and mini pork belly bao. Meanwhile, the Flying Solo set (HK$158) includes a starter and main, with the option to add a drink or ice cream bao for extra. Designed for two, the Happy 2gether menu (HK$168pp) offers a sharing starter of brussel sprouts and truffle fries, followed by two bites, two savoury signature baos, and two ice cream baos.
