HONG KONG: Over the past two months, the Hong Kong restaurant industry has been dealt a devastating blow, with once-thriving outlets struggling to stay afloat in a city that no longer dines out. Recording the first sweeping loss in annual revenue since 2004, Hong Kong’s restaurants are now in need of help and support.
As a response to a declining industry that remains the heart and soul of the city, Hong Kong’s leading F&B experts The Forks & Spoons, Tatler Dining Hong Kong and On Air Collective, along with supporting media Tasting Kitchen (TK), Time Out Hong Kong, Foodie, The Loop, and WOM Guide have teamed up to launch #UnitedWeDine, a city-wide restaurant campaign that encourages all of Hong Kong’s food lovers to dine out and enjoy some of the best promotional offers.
Restaurants participating in #UnitedWeDine
Starting from 16th March until 30th April 2020, over 100 restaurants across Hong Kong will participate in offering limited time #UnitedWeDine menus and/or dish specials at attractive prices. In total, there are over 80 restaurants that are valid for dine-in points for entry in the prize giveaway. The campaign invites Hong Kong to rally for a good cause – and to come hungry.
Restaurants that have joined the movement include recent casual hotspots such as sommelier-led experiential wine bar ThinkWine, popular Spanish restaurant with a view La Rambla by Catalunya, and Bayfare Social, the Mediterranean gastro-market concept nestled within Rosewood Hong Kong.
From the Michelin-awarded fine dining category, one-Michelin-starred L’Envol at St Regis Hong Kong, one-Michelin-starred TATE Dining Room, one-Michelin-starred Roganic, two-Michelin-starred Amber and two-Michelin-starred Ecriture among others have jumped on the bandwagon.
Old-time foodie favourites such as Wyndham Street’s hallmark Indian restaurant Bombay Dreams, award-winning izakaya Yardbird, hamburger specialist Beef & Liberty and Argentinian steakhouse Tango Soho have also joined in on the fun.
Dine out and Win Fantastic Prizes!
While the main purpose of #UnitedWeDine is to encourage diners to rediscover Hong Kong’s incredible dining scene, and to support as many restaurants as possible, diners also have the chance to win prizes by doing so.
Between 16th March – 30th April, guests who visit five or more restaurants out of over 80 options, and tells us their reasons for supporting Hong Kong’s dining scene, will have the chance to win one of many luxury prizes.
Prizes range from a coveted bottle of The Glenlivet Single Cask 646, a limited edition bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellowboam champagne, a Creatista Plus Stainless Steel Coffee Machine by Nespresso, to a 60-minute Lava Shell Full Body Massage at the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong spa, a one-night stay in a L600 signature room with breakfast for two (2) at Landmark Mandarin Oriental, and a 24-hour dining and staycation programme at The Upper House, among many others.
Diners may receive one (1) entry in the giveaway for every five (5) restaurants visited. The collective minimum spend across the five restaurants must be no less than HK$2,500.
