At the Feast – charcoal grilled duck breast with sauteed girolles with lums, fir and in an honey and pepper sauce

Today is the beginning of the very first Hong Kong Great November Feast. Hong Kongt is known for both the quality and range of the food on offer so the November Feast is an opportunity for visitors to enjoy specially created tasting menus, featuring chef signature dishes and the finest culinary offerings with accompanying wines at some of the city’s best restaurants. Such events are widely available in cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco in the US.

Running at virtually the same time are two more foodie events. Firstly, there is an opportunity to try the forty dishes (at a 20% discount) that won in the 2016 Best of the Best Culinary Awards.    Secondly, for the first ten days of the month, visitors can buy one and get one free at the Cocktail Agenda. At over thirty bars, you will be able to sample some of the cocktails that have been created which have resulted in Hong Kong being known as one of the best places in the world to enjoy cleverly thought-out cocktails.

It is in October and November that the island celebrates its equivalent of Oktoberfest with its German Bierfest which continues to run until the 12th of November.

This is also the time for two local festivals, Queen’s Road East Festival and the Lai Kwai Fong Carnival.  The biennial New Vision Arts Festival is still on until the 20 the of November an event that showcases cross cultural performances with an Asian emphasis and the Arts in the Park Mardi Gras is on the weekend of the 15th and 16th of November where giant puppets parade through Victoria Park.  Last year, 150,000 eople came to see the fun.

In addition there are all the usual things that Hong Kong has to offer like shopping, cruises in the bay and evening cruises either with fine dining or as an appetiser before your evening meal. Or you can just hop aboard a couple of the ferries and explore the differing neighbourhoods which is a great way to familiarise with the diverse culture that you will find in modern Hong Kong.
