A taste of what to ex­pect from T.Din­ing 2018

There is some­thing mag­i­cal about that fleet­ing mo­ment when the cap of a hot bam­boo steamer is lifted. The an­tic­i­pa­tion of what may be con­cealed quickly gives way to an en­er­getic un­furl­ing of aro­matic steam, which dis­si­pates to re­veal a won­der­ful trea­sure be­neath to be savoured. As I stood there ob­serv­ing din­ers glee­fully par­take in this early morn­ing dim sum rit­ual at a moun­tain­side tea­house in Hong Kong, I re­alised that this com­bi­na­tion of cu­rios­ity, dis­cov­ery and joy was a feel­ing that we wanted to recre­ate with the launch of T.Din­ing — a new plat­form for those who not only love to eat, but those with an ap­petite for the end­less jour­ney of rev­e­la­tory and sur­pris­ing culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ences.

We’ve al­ways been hun­gry to do more—a tra­di­tion that has been passed down since 1984, when Hong Kong Tatler pub­lished its first an­nual guide­book ded­i­cated to the re­gion’s most ex­cep­tional and ex­cit­ing restau­rants. Over the best part of four decades, our din­ing uni­verse has grown con­sid­er­ably—and even more so in the last few years, with our con­tent evolv­ing rapidly in the ar­eas of print, dig­i­tal (www.hongkong­tatler.com /din­ing) and live events.

In the pages that fol­low, you will dis­cover the con­tin­u­a­tion of our story, with course af­ter course of sat­is­fy­ing food and drink nar­ra­tives penned by the city’s top tastemak­ers, fol­lowed by in-depth cov­er­age of this year’s most an­tic­i­pated guide to din­ing: with over 220 brand-new re­views of Hong Kong and Ma­cau’s es­sen­tial restau­rants and bars, and the un­veil­ing of the 2018 Top 20 Best Restau­rants list, as hand­picked by our panel of culi­nary ex­perts. As we lift the lid on yet an­other year of ex­cep­tional gas­tron­omy, we hope that you, too, will feel that flut­ter of ex­cite­ment as you feed upon these words and images, and the next time you dine out on our rec­om­men­da­tions.
