Do you miss Hong Kong and its fabulous eats? I remember one of particularly mouthwatering video my friend Wilsurn shared in a groupchat of him and his companion scarfing down all the iconic foods on a weekend makan trip to Hong Kong, just before the Covid travel restrictions hit. Man…the things we take for granted and think we’ll be able to do just anytime? Not so easy now. They’ve just announced a travel air bubble between SG and HK but no dates yet for when this will happen. But thankfully, sometimes when we can’t go to the mountain, the mountain can come to us.
The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) is giving us “100 Reasons to Miss Hong Kong” by offering a variety of authentic Hong Kong food experiences to enjoy.
From 12 October 2020 to 15 November 2020, HKTB has lined up eight world-famous Hong Kong food brands in Singapore to provide exclusive promotions and offers to local travellers who miss Hong Kong’s food. Participating brands include Jenny Bakery, Kam’s Roast, Mui Kee Congee, Social Place, as well as the newly opened Hang Heung and Joy Luck Teahouse (which houses Hoover Cake Shop, Kam Kee Café & Tak Hing Fishball Company).
While travelling to Hong Kong is still not possible, fans can still satisfy their Hong Kong food pangs with these exciting food offers.
