HAPPENINGS

HONG KONG

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.

AWARD-WINNING NOODLES

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.

Open 11.30am to 8pm daily, Hong

Kong, Causeway Bay, Tang Lung St,

SPOTLIGHT

Not Your Regular

Take-Out

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,
