Travel is put to a temporary halt, and it’s for the unforeseeable future. Whilst we’re dreaming of days out in the Tuscan sun and wishing we could be exploring downtown Manhattan, it will be a while until then. So, in line with the latest government restrictions in Hong Kong, the most responsible thing to do is to dine-in. Here are some restaurants offering international cuisine to bring back nostalgia of your favourite worldwide cuisine to indulge in from home.
