The ongoing Coronavirus outbreak has certainly had an impact on the way we eat in dine-out heavy Hong Kong, but that doesn’t mean we all have to resign ourselves to a domesticated existence of canned soups and Kraft macaroni cheese. With the restaurant industry one of the hardest hit sectors, now’s a crucial time to support your favourite local by ordering delivery, takeout, or even cash vouchers. Whether it’s a gourmet feast fit for special occasions or a romantic date night, some of our favourite restaurants have been serving up their signature dishes ready-to-eat or easily reheatable in the comfort of your home.

As the ‘work from home’ saga rolls on, the food delivery industry is at least experiencing an upswing, backed by a slew of promotional menus and that make it a breeze to enjoy some of your favourite dishes at home — all with the proper hygiene and safety measures in place, of course. Until it’s safe again to dine in social settings, here’s a running list of our favourite restaurants supplying everything from takeaway to home meal kits.

Hot 'n' Meen

Fortunately for the ‘work from home’ crowd, Sichuan staple Chilli Fagara has recently launched a delivery-only noodle menu with the amusing title of Hot ‘n’ Meen. Tender, knife-cut noodles are seasoned in preparations like chilli chicken (HK$78) or dan dan soup (HK$68) and tripling up on these big dishes — or simply throwing a few sides into the mix — will net you 20 percent off on any order that totals more than HK$200. Available from 11:30am until 10:15pm, the noods can be delivered within Admiralty, Central, Mid-Levels, Sheung Wan or Sai Ying Pun, exclusively via Deliveroo.
