Beef & Liberty
With the festive season approaching, Beef & Liberty welcomes back the Sweet Baby Cheesus (HK$139) to its menu. This indulgent take on a traditional Christmas feast with an aptly named burger, the Sweet Baby Cheesus, will be available at all restaurants in Hong Kong.
Specially created by Chef Neil Tomes, the burger contains Scottish beef topped with slices of creamy blue and Brie cheese then decorated with luscious toppings of cranberry sauce, onion jam and house pickles in between two toasty golden buns. For vegetarians, there is an option to replace the burger with an Impossible patty (HK$159).
Such festivities would not be complete without a seasonal sweet treat. Back by popular demand is the Warm Christmas Cookie & Cream made with Christmas spices, dark chocolate and copious amounts of thick cream. An Almond Coconut Black Tea Latte special will also be available with Ceylon tea for a comforting warm fix this chilly season.
Transforming their restaurant into an elegant winter wonderland, contemporary Chinese restaurant Mott 32 is beginning the festivities with seasonal menus featuring a traditional Cantonese spin on staple holiday dishes. The first option is the Peking Turkey menu (HK$1,880 for a minimum of 4 people) features the turkey skillfully served in three preparations. This includes a Shredded Turkey Salad with a tangy cranberry dressing, a delicately Spiced Minced Turkey on crisp prawn crackers and a succulent Free-Range Barbecued Turkey roasted and marinated in a Chinese-style garlic and scallion sauce – and served with a homemade cranberry sauce.
