With HKSAR establishment day, America’s Independence Day and Canada Day all coinciding in the same short work week, it’s high time for a feast. Whether you’re checking out one of the newest restaurants in town or looking to tuck into a barbecue or brunch courtesy of our American and Canadian friends, check out these delicious special menus below.
Canada Day at Shady Acres
When: 1 July, 1pm until late
If you can brave the public holiday mayhem on Peel Street, celebrate the nicest country in the world at the return of Shady Acres’ Canada Day soiree — unapologetically fuelled by Canadian beers, bloody Caesars, poutine, and more at the neighbourhood hangout. Head there early to nab a seat and try one-off menu specials such as the Boston lobster roll with tomalley-infused cocktail sauce and lobster roe butter; maple bacon burger (a riff on the bar’s staple Impossible cheeseburger with real meat this time) and homemade maple ice cream.
