Over the years I have spent Christmas in many different parts of the world. To get everyone into the spirit this holiday season I have decided to write a series of short posts on my Best Christmas Holiday experiences. I hope you find one that inspires you to travel and see the world this holiday season!
The Hong kong Christmas Buffet
When you are traveling during the holidays, the topic of what to eat on Christmas Day inevitably comes up. In Hong Kong the answer is always Buffet. I have eaten my way through a lot of different buffets in my life, but the Hong Kong Christmas Buffets are by far the best.
We are always spoiled for choice with a wide array of Western and Asian inspired appetizers.
Most of the buffets in Hong Kong focus heavily on seafood as this snowman-topped lobster tower indicates.
Of course, no Christmas dinner is complete without Turkey, Leg of Lamb, and Beef Wellington! It is really nice to have a choice of all the traditional roast meats at the same time.
Salads, cheeses, and more seafood choices are another common site at these buffets. There are generally so many choices that I often have a hard time choosing what to eat first.
No meal is complete without something sweet at the end of it. Hong Kong Christmas Buffets take their desserts very seriously – there is always a large number of options to choose from. Cheesecakes, puddings, cream cakes, fruit pies, jellies, crepes and fondue are always available.
One of the other reasons I love celebrating Christmas at a buffet in Hong Kong, is that the atmosphere is always so festive! Every table has party hats and noise makers. Santa Claus always makes a visit and often has a gift for the children. Some restaurants also offer entertainment ranging from a choir singing Christmas carols to a slight-of-hand magician.
Most of the major hotels offer a Christmas buffet in their main restaurant. A seating is usually 2.5 hours and should be reserved far in advance.
