BEST FOOT FORWARD
Covering a distance of 100km,
Trailwalker is arguably the region’s
toughest hiking event in the region.
But challenging athletes is just one
small part of this signature Hong Kong
event as Trailwalker also helps raise
awareness and funds for good causes.
Organised by Oxfam, Trailwalker
stands as one of the largest fundraising
sporting events in Hong Kong. But
lacing up for this hiking trail is no
mean feat as participants are required
to tackle the tough MacLehose Trail
and other trails in Sai Kung within the
span of 48 hours.
To date, close to 100,000
participants have participated in the
event, raising over HK$538 million.
The Michelin Star has continuously
been the gold standard when it
comes to rating eateries. And when
it comes to top honours for ramen,
only one name truly stands out –
Tsuta. The Tokyo eatery claimed the
distinction of winning a Michelin Star
in 2015, the first ramen restaurant in
the world to do so.
Now, armed with the highest
culinary accolade, Tsuta is setting up
outlets across the globe, beginning in
Singapore and now Hong Kong. For
ramen fans in Asia’s World City, that’s
certainly good news as they only
need to venture to Causeway Bay to
savour this delectable noodles. The
bad news is there’s an omnipresent
queue to get by first.
Granted, the wait isn’t as long
as the original Tsuta in Tokyo but
the outlet does limit its signature
offerings to just 400 bowls per day.

Not Your Regular
Hong Kong’s already popular
street food scene is set to gain
more prominence with the arrival
of HAWKR, a grab-and-go dining
concept that delivers the best of the
region. Taking inspiration from the
best hawker centres from Southeast
Asia, this newly-opened eatery
located on the ground floor of Hoi
Kwong Street in Quarry Bay serves
up an impressive array of signature
favourites from the region.
The brainchild of seasoned
restaurateurs, HAWKR prides
itself on serving fresh, healthy and
hearty dishes to its diners. For Asian
travellers who had their fill of Dim
Sum and Roasted Goose, HAWKR is
perfect to pop in to savour something
familiar. And to ensure that its
clientele are duly satisfied, the eatery
is certainly not short on signature
Southeast Asian goodies.
The impressive spread includes
soup noodles from Malaysia and
Thailand, along with Indonesian
Rendang and Vietnamese Baguette
Sandwiches. Salads and wraps are a
key feature in HAWKR, all naturally
made with an Asian spin, of course.
For those looking to dine in, the outlet
houses a small bar counter with views
of the busy street outside. Open daily,
