The end of the year means the arrival of Christmas, but it can also be a very tiring period. There are just so many presents to buy, end-of-year work targets to smash, and friends and family to see! We don’t know about you, but our daily caffeine consumption levels always peak towards December.
Did you know that a lot of modern coffee shops—and certainly a lot of the ones dotted all over Hong Kong—have been influenced by Australian café culture? Apart from the ubiquitous flat white, Aussie coffee shops and milk bars have also brought to us lighter roasts, a greater appreciation for the bean-to-cup journey, as well as healthily satisfying bites to go along with the beverages. It’s not just about grabbing any ol’ cup of joe any more!
Experience for yourself what Australian café culture has to offer with Ninetys Roastery. Since the opening of their first Wan Chai branch in 2018, this dining café has been a firm favourite for speciality Aussie coffee and accompanying fusion dishes among Hongkongers. This Christmas season, Ninetys is offering a dedicated Christmas set menu, with warming, hearty dishes such as barley soup, Spanish suckling pig terrine, sous vide Kagoshima chicken roulade, and grilled Japanese Zen Noh Kumamoto F1 beef to enjoy. Each of their four locations have slightly differing menus, and set prices range from $498 to $698 per person, so check out your nearest branch for a Yuletide treat.
Additionally, from 14 December onwards, you can get 50 percent off a proper Aussie breakfast at Ninetys Roastery in Lee Gardens. This offer is only applicable for dine-in from 8:30 am to 11:30 am (last order at 11 am)—and only available for a limited time—so reserve your table via Ninetys’ website or Openrice now to get 50 percent off your avo toast and flat white soon and experience Australian café culture first-hand at Ninetys Roastery!
