Deck the tables: Hong Kong’s best Christmas dinners and takeaway sets
December 21, 2020
With silly season just around the corner, “eat, drink and be merry” will soon become everybody’s mantra. But why slave away in the kitchen when you can order in a Hong Kong Christmas dinner for the entire family? Whether you’re looking for the traditional turkey dinner, an Asian-inspired spread or a festive liquid lunch, Hong Kong never fails to deliver:
For those who want to enjoy a home-cooked meal this Christmas but are daunted by the thought of sourcing all the ingredients, Relish is here to rescue you. Boasting main course options including Beef Wellington, rolled turkey breast and leg, salmon en croute and a vegetarian squash and mushroom nut roast, this package is sure to wow. The six traditional festive side dishes (pigs in blanket, sage and chestnut stuffing, Brussels sprouts with bacon, braised red cabbage and duck fat roast potatoes) and family-sized dessert (sticky toffee pudding or Christmas pudding with brandy butter) really round out the meal. All items are marinated, seasoned and come with detailed instructions on how to whip up the perfect banquet at home, minus the stress. Included is enough to feed six people, two bottles of wine (one red, one white) and a box of Christmas crackers — because what’s Christmas without a paper hat?
