Thanksgiving: Hunting for Turkey

13 November 2015

It's not a party unless it's a TURKEY-PARTY. It's that time of year again, the beginning of 'the season'. The season where Hong Kong's restaurants pull out all the stops - push out all the best - and eat up all of the deliciously indulgent deals that we simply can't resist. If you know us, then you know how excited we get about some Turkey around here -- so we kicked off this season and went turkey hunting:

For one night only, Common Room transforms into an all-American haven and offers a Thanksgiving dinner of roasted turkey or honey glazed ham with all the fixings. For the kiddos there's a kid's meal - turkey meatloaf, mac & cheese and green bean casserole, and an icecream with soft drink or juice for just HK $198 per child. For the adults, the feast includes - a salad or soup for starter, Turkey or Ham for main, and sweet potato mash with marshmallow and creamed corn or sautéed spinach. Finish of your meal with a slice of pumpkin pie and a warm cup of mulled wine or hot cider - all for just HKD $598.
