This year, Thanksgiving falls on Thursday 24 November; and although it’s originally a time when Americans and Canadians celebrate with their friends and loved ones, it has become increasingly popular with food lovers from other countries too – and that includes here in HK. So, it’s time to get your gobble on! We’ve listed a few top places for dining in, or for tracking down your own turkey and trimmings for take away or delivery to make for a great Thanksgiving dinner in Hong Kong.
