Rainbow coloured toasted cheese sandwiches? Incredible food on display for Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival
A food festival full of incredible treats is taking place in Hong Kong this week, featuring unique dishes such as multi-coloured rainbow cheese toasties and cuttlefish balls shaped like penguins.
Now in its eighth year, the Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival will take place at the Central Harbourfront Event Space from 27-30 October, showcasing a range of delectable delights from the best bars and restaurants in the city across 420 booths, allowing visitors to sample a wide range of different dishes. The event will also showcase some of the best drinks, cocktails and bartenders, with a new addition the Hong Kong Bar featuring mixologists creating drinks inspired by the vibrant nightlife of the city.
Some of the food on display includes over-sized octopus takoyaki, a traditional street dish of cooked octopus on egg waffles, happy penguin cuttlefish balls, eye-catching and multi-coloured soup dumplings and wagyu steak with runny egg. Dishes by top chefs across the city have been designed to marry the traditional with the gourmet, taking local ingredients and recipes and using them in different ways.
Cocktails at the event include a creation that marries whiskey and malted milk, as well as a rum, coffee, honey and butterscotch drink. Another set of drinks uses traditional Chinese dried fruits such as dragon eye and longan combined with whiskey.
