Step up your brunch game at ‘Biiitch’, Hong Kong’s very own weekend dragstravaganza

Coconuts Hong Kong Food & Drink

We cannot stress this enough: it is absolutely not an exaggeration to say that Hongkongers are obsessed with food. How could we not be, with our humble but delicious cha chaan teng fare (which we maintain is the original and best fusion food), vast array of world-class international cuisine, and perhaps most importantly, dim sum that truly touches the heart? Here, people live to eat, rather than eat to live. With that in mind, it’s hardly surprising that the Coconuts Hong Kong Food & Drink section is always pretty popular. In this section, you’ll find all the latest foodie news (i.e. restaurant openings, special deals, guest chefs, etc) under our Food Buzz tag. Over in the straightforwardly named Food Guides & Features tag, you’re spoiled for choice: we’ve got a breakdown of the city’s best vegetarian and vegan eats, tips on how to make the most of hairy crab season, an insider’s guide to Korean specialties in Tsim Sha Tsui’s thriving K-Town, and a feature on the weirdest food you can find in Hong Kong. Under Restaurant Reviews, you can either check out our in-depth, feature-length Coconuts Critic’s Tables reviews on restaurants both old and new, or skim the hot recommendations on hidden local gems and buzzy new eateries via Coconuts Hot Spots. We also cover nightlife in Hong Kong here, whether we’re talking about great club nights, brilliant band showcases, a happy hour you simply cannot pass up, or a listicle of the best parties this season. Dig in, Coconauts!
