Thanksgiving 2019: Where to have a Thanksgiving feast in Hong Kong

By Inés Fung 15 November 2019
As the temperatures begin to drop, we kick off the holiday season by getting our loved ones together for Thanksgiving. We know Thanksgiving is a North American holiday, but you don’t have to be American to give thanks and enjoy an old-fashioned meal with your friends and family, complete with festive trimmings. Thanksgiving meals can be a laborious affair, so we’ve rounded up some of the best Thanksgiving dining options in Hong Kong this year. No fowl play here! Just pick one (or more!) and have the merriest meal with your loved ones.

1. Mr Brown

Mr Brown has quickly become the hottest grill house on Ship Street, and this year they’re giving back to their fans with a specially-crafted Thanksgiving menu and selective house drinks. For just $450 per person, enjoy a moreish spread of appetisers like Corn & Buttermilk Fritters and a wide variety of entrees alongside a traditional Roast Turkey with Pecan and Bacon Stuffing. End the night with a slice of Apple & Pecan Pie with bourbon ice cream, as well as two speciality cocktails: the Pickle Back (made with bourbon and pickle juice) and the Granny Knows Best (apple, lime, agave syrup, and ginger.) Limited seats are available so be sure to book in advance. When: November 28 Where: Mr Brown, G/F, 9 Ship Street, Wan Chai

2. Fini’s

If you miss Stone Nullah Tavern as much as we do, you’ll have plenty to be thankful for this Thanksgiving as Fini’s revives some beloved favourites from the Stone Nullah menu. For $548 per person, you can devour a hearty Seafood Platter filled with fresh oysters, crab legs, ceviche, Old Bay shrimp, and a classic mignonette, then choose to have your turkey Garlic Butter-Roasted or Southern-Fried. Paired with scrumptious sides like Apple and Cheddar Stuffing, Butter Roasted Potatoes, Charred Brussels Sprouts as well as the crowd-pleasing Pulled Pork Mac n’ Cheese, you might not even have room for dessert! Just kidding, who could say no to a Skillet Cookie or Apple Crumble? Tack on the two-hour free-flow package for only $198 more per person to really make it a feast. When: November 28–30 Where: Fini’s, locations vary

3. Posto Pubblico

Staunton Street’s Italian-American stalwart Posto Pubblico is dishing out their beloved traditional Thanksgiving menu for another year running. For $439 per person (and an additional $198 if you wanna go crazy on the Wild Turkey Old-Fashioneds), you can indulge in an authentic and sophisticated Thanksgiving dinner that’s made with locally-sourced, organic ingredients. Homemade Burrata and Posto’s signature Veal Meatballs will serve as the perfect starter, while the centrepiece of Garlic Butter-Roasted Turkey is sure to delight you and your loved ones. It’s not a Thanksgiving dinner without pie, so make room for the Pumpkin Pie Square at the end! When: November 28–30 Where: Posto Pubblico, 28 Elgin Street, Central
