Hong Kong’s well-known nightlife district will be pulling out all the stops again this month for a month-long celebration of the district’s thriving wining and dining event.

The annual Lan Kwai Fong Cuisine Celebration – to be held from Nov 1 to 30 – will bring a world of flavors to the heart of the city, where revelers and connoisseurs can savor a variety of international cuisines without having to jet off.

As part of the 2021 Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival, organized by the Hong Kong Tourism Board, the culinary festivities will involve almost 30 restaurants and bars at the city’s famed nightspot. 

With travel restrictions still in place, we’re bringing the best of the international culinary landscape to Lan Kwai Fong. So, locals can enjoy delectable Western and Asian cuisines all within a stone’s throw of each other.

Epicureans can look forward to a plethora of special dining and drink offers, the debut of the first ever LKF Wine Passport and exclusive tasting workshops.

“We’ve been a strong partner of the Hong Kong Tourism Board for more than 10 years, and will remain so for many more years to come,” says Allan Zeman, chairman of the Lan Kwai Fong Association.

“With travel restrictions still in place, we’re bringing the best of the international culinary landscape to Lan Kwai Fong. So, locals can enjoy delectable Western and Asian cuisines all within a stone’s throw of each other.”

The LKF Cuisine Celebration has been an integral part of the Hong Kong Tourism Board’s traditional Wine & Dine Festival. 

“Hong Kong has long been dubbed a ‘gourmet’s paradise’. As a world-famous tourism and gastronomic hotspot, Lan Kwai Fong boasts an extensive collection of special restaurants and bars that have played an instrumental role in strengthening Hong Kong's status as a ‘gourmet’s paradise’,” said Dane Cheng, executive director of the HKTB.

“I believe our collaboration (with the Lan Kwai Fong Association) will bring Hong Kong’s world-class gourmet experiences to the world and make our city the first choice as a travel destination for food aficionados around the world when normal travel resumes,” he said.

Over the past two years, dining habits of Hong Kong residents have undergone massive changes in a trend towards digital-driven restaurant experiences that prioritize seamless online booking services and convenience practices. At the forefront of this digital transformation, the Lan Kwai Fong Association is launching its inaugural online-to-offline LKF Wine Passport in November this year.

“As a leading player in Hong Kong’s restaurant and bar industry, we’re constantly striving to provide new experiences to our guests,” says Jonathan Zeman, vice-chairman of the Lan Kwai Fong Association.

“With the entire industry undergoing rapid digital transformation, we decided to launch the LKF Wine Passport, which offers   our guests the flexibility in selecting and getting the QR code for their drinks even before they set foot in our venues. This will revolutionize the whole dining and drinking experience for today’s digital-savvy consumers.”
