Diners in Hong Kong are spoiled for choice. This year, culinary variety has expanded rapidly with restaurants showcasing cuisines from every corner of the world. Newly gentrified neighbourhoods, cool pop-ups and elevated approaches to casual dining have also played important roles in invigorating this year’s gastronomic landscape. Following the magazine’s tradition, our December issue celebrates the finest dining experiences in Hong Kong and Macau, and serves a comprehensive guide to dining around town. As well as the awards, this issue also includes a gift guide categorised by district to make holiday shopping easier. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
