A Megibung Mussels Fest at Poem
In Balinese culture, ‘Megibung’ is a traditional family dining occasion to celebrate togetherness. Every Monday and Tuesday, Poem will be hosting weekly Megibung dinners that feature a Mussels Feast — 1kg of mussels made to share between two or three people (HK$288), that can be enjoyed with unlimited side dishes of seasonal vegetables and organic rice. You’ll want to tack on some of Poem’s traditional Balinese home-style recipes to round out a family meal.

The ‘double smashed with cheese’ burger at Beef & Liberty
This summer, Beef & Liberty is releasing a burger that’s inspired by the all-American classic double cheeseburger, dubbed the ‘double smashed with cheese.’ What’s ‘double-smashed’ is the grass-fed Scottish beef patty — smashed flat with a melted slice of American cheese in between. It’s topped with pickles, Dijon mayo and butter lettuce between the restaurant’s signature toasted buns. This is the first time they are serving up grass-fed beef in this manner, but there’s also an Impossible Meat option, if you’re looking for something plant-based. This special is only available until 30 August 2020, so try it before it’s gone.
