During the pandemic many regular events have been cancelled, and since Hong Kong has had a resurgence of cases lately, it is really nice to the Hong Kong Restaurant Week festival coming back. It’s a fun event, which offers really good value for budget-conscious foodies.
Hong Kong Restaurant Week Autumn 2020 will run from September 24th to October 4th, 2020. Created by DiningCity in collaboration with HSBC credit card, the upcoming edition of this bi-annual event brought the two partnering organizations back together with distinguished restaurants, to bring back a slice of gourmet life to consumers looking forward to the return of stability.
A cosmopolitan lifestyle or a discerning palate may take years to cultivate — as a proponent of gourmet culture, Hong Kong Restaurant Week opens the opportunity for diners to enjoy fine dining and cutting-edge culinary experiences at great value. Hong Kong Restaurant Week is held twice a year, with one edition in Spring and the other in Autumn. Acting as a gateway to affordable gourmet culture, the events not only provide diners the excellent dining experiences, but also present a fuss-free channel for engaging in the culinary scene.
This year’s Autumn Restaurant Week has a lineup totaling over 150 distinctive, world-class restaurants. Among them are an array of Michelin-starred restaurants, fine dining establishments operated by world-famous five-star hotels, rising social media stars, long-standing favorites, as well as Internet-famous eateries, so that diners can enjoy the richly varied tastes of the world, exploring global gastronomy without even leaving the country.

“Hong Kong Restaurant Week has gone through its first 10 years, gradually building momentum to become a propelling force within the gourmet industry. We are very pleased about this,” said Onno Schreurs, the founder of DiningCity. “At the same time, looking at the bigger picture, Restaurant Week is still at a very young stage. Looking ahead, we hope to maintain a reputation for excellence — just as New York Restaurant Week has been held for nearly 30 years, we will continue to write brand history and go better and further here in Hong Kong. Our hope has always been to engage all consumers in Restaurant Week activities, and create a platform for people to connect with others and to build lasting memories with family and friends through spectacular dining experiences.”
Reservations will open exclusively to HSBC credit cardholders at DiningCity’s official website (www.restaurantweek.hk) and its mobile App (DiningCity) from September 17th, 2020 at 10:00 AM.
