7 best Hong Kong Thanksgiving takeaways for your dinner party

Nov 13, 2017

Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong's traditional feast never fails to impress

Sometimes it’s just nice to eat in. Though we have to admit cooking in Hong Kong’s tiny kitchens offers little motivation—nor does the cleaning up afterwards. Thankfully, there’s a little thing called takeaway (or if you fancy dining out, check out our top picks here) so all you have to do is heat it up and serve.

Now accepting pre-orders, here are the best spots in Hong Kong to order your Thanksgiving feast. Be sure to book yours early so you aren’t disappointed. 

Stone Nullah Tavern

Chef Vinny's succulent turkey and American sides

Chef Vinny Lauria is whipping off an incredible, all-American Thanksgiving feast you can take away. Made for groups of six people and above, the takeaway turkey dinner menu (HK$2,899) includes a whole garlic butter roasted turkey (weighing in at 8-10kg) along with warm cheddar biscuits, black pepper and bourbon gravy, cranberry marmalade, caramelized onion, apple and cheddar stuffing, charred brussels sprouts, pulled pork rib mac n’ cheese, butter roasted potatoes and a delicious apple pie to finish.

Available between 20-26 November, be sure to order well in advance so you don’t miss out.

Not enough? Lily & Bloom has you covered with a menu of mains, sides and desserts that you can order in addition to the turkey feast.
