More than 2,000 food outlets from eight catering associations - and stores across Hong Kong - will offer discounts to celebrate the 27th anniversary of Hong Kong’s handover to China on July 1.

The restaurants and food outlets are offering selective deals with prices related to “7” and “1” in line with July 1.

Among the best deals are those offered by the Fullerton Hotel which is slashing 29 percent off meals at all its four on-site restaurants, or at 71 per cent of regular prices, from June 28 to July 7.

Restaurant chain Tai Hing will also offer a 29 percent discount for its entire menu for all dine-in customers on July 1 at all locations, except the one at the airport. 

Café de Coral branches will give the same discount for its winter melon soup dinner set for two and restaurants under Maxim group, for its baked pork chop rice.

Tai Cheong Bakery on the other hand, will sell egg tarts for $7.1 each, from June 29 to July 1.

Among the other participating outlets are Gyu-Kaku, which will offer 29 percent off for its Premium Wagyu 100-minute All-You-Can-Eat Set Dinner, while Chinese teahouses under Fu Lum Group and Sportful Garden will offer a dedicated “handover dinner set”.

The 29 percent discount also applies to all fruit juices at Circle K convenience stores.

Catering sector lawmaker Tommy Cheung said the initiative is not meant to boost sales but to join in the celebration.

"It is not how much business we do. It is contributing so that everybody will be happy come July 1 when you go out to eat,” he said.


Cheung said it would be difficult for many merchants to offer a 29 percent off the  customer’s entire bill, and still survive.

He also said some shops dare not provide too many special offers since they are still understaffed and laborers imported from the mainland have yet to arrive.

The food industry’s offers are among a range of treats being readied for the Handover anniversary, including free rides on the tram and the Tsim Sha Tsui to Wanchai route of the Star Ferry, and a 73% discount on the Ngong Ping 360 roundtrip standard cabin cable car tickets for children and seniors from June 29 to July 1.

In addition, international tourists can enjoy a free one-way ferry ticket to Macau for a limited time until July 31 – or a bus ticket from Hong Kong International Airport to Macau through the HK-Zhuhai-Macau bridge. The complimentary bus tickets are given away on a first-come, first-served basis. For details, go to
