The countdown is on for the biggest foodie event of the year, as Taste of Hong Kong 2017 presented by Standard Chartered gears up for its return to Central Harbourfront from 16–19 March. Catering to all food and drink enthusiasts, Taste of Hong Kong brings together the best chefs and restaurants across the city for four days of live demos, workshops, expert panels, shopping, and of course, the best dishes from Hong Kong’s most renowned kitchens.

More than 50 signature dishes celebrated Hong Kong restaurants will be served up at the festival, including offerings from: Amber, Arcane, Café Gray Deluxe, Chino, Duddell’s, Kaum at Potato Head, Mercato, Okra, Rhoda, Tin Lung Heen, Tosca, Yardbird and Zuma. Meanwhile, the Gourmet Market features more than 60 producers introducing a range of food and beverage products, from fine wines to premium chocolates and artisanal kitchenware.

As an exclusive Valentine’s Day special, Taste of Hong Kong is offering up just 50 Taste of Hong Kong V-Day Packages (first-come, first-served) for purchase now through 14 February.
