Every autumn, Hong Kong celebrates the world’s finest flavours at the CCB (Asia) Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival! This year, the 8th annual Wine & Dine Festival will be staged at the Central Harbourfront event space from 27 – 30 October 2016. With hundreds of stalls set against the stunning backdrop of Victoria Harbour, you will be spoilt for choice with fine wine and spirits from around the globe as well as award-winning bites. From sparkling wines to complex whiskies, from cooking classes to street snacks, this will be a night for your taste buds to remember.
You can enjoy both photographing and tasting adorable eats in the Food Zone that are almost too cute to bite into. There are Happy Penguin Cuttlefish Balls, Six-colour Soup Dumplings, Rainbow Grilled Cheese Toast, and over-sized “Octopus Takoyaki”, which is cooked octopus on egg waffles, a traditional street snack in Hong Kong.
Another highlight to look forward to is the Star Food Booths, where Grand Wine Pass Holders can sample sensational dishes from a collection of the trendiest restaurants in Hong Kong, including Little Bao, The Ocean, Chez Ed, Jinjuu, TRi, BIBO, Mercedes Me and Harlan’s.
At the Hong Kong Bar, there are fantastic cocktails created by talented mixologists from some of the hippest bars in Hong Kong, including CÉ LA VI, Maison Eight, Angel’s Share, Bao Bei, Stockton, Fu Lu Shou, Sohofama, The Envoy, NEO Cocktail Club and Seafood Room.
Don’t miss the HK-inspired cocktails, such as The Envoy’s Haig-a-Horlick, which combines whisky with malted milk, turning a childhood drink into an adult indulgence. Angel’s Share takes the classic Hong Kong drink Sprite with salted lemon and adds Taiwan’s best-selling single malt Scotch whisky to evoke the flavours of caramel, orange peel and ginger candy.
There’s a whole lot more than food and wine at the festival! Live music and entertainment at The Stage will indulge the crowd from day till night with exciting performances.
Looking to indulge during this four-day event? You will not be disappointed with many more gastronomic experiences in Country Pavilion, Street Eat, Whisky Corner and Cheese Parade!
