Food Lovers Support Local Delicacies at the “Link Good Food” Tasting Event

The winners of the Link Good Food competition organised by Link Asset Management Limited (“Link”) are out! The Link Good Food tasting event was recently held at Lok Fu Place with close to 3,000 participants. After sampling local delicacies from 24 contending finalists in eight popular food categories, the participants picked the final winners with their votes. Three of the eight Gold Award winners are Link tenants.
The ultimate contest to find Hongkongers’ best-loved local eateries
Returning for its second year to promote Hong Kong’s unique food culture and identify the most popular local eateries, the Link Good Food competition received overwhelming support from the local community in its earlier phases, with over 200 nominations from the public of local eateries and nearly 10,000 votes cast to decide the shortlisted finalists for eight food categories ranging from wonton and fish balls to egg tarts and Hong Kong-style milk tea.
The 24 finalists gathered at Lok Fu Place, where they offered free samples of their signature dishes to compete for votes from participants. Joined by professional judges like executive chef Paul Wong (黃亞保) and food connoisseur Ka-kuen Leung (梁家權), the enthusiastic participants cast their votes for the Link Good Food champions at the food tasting event (please see the winners list below). Official results have been published on Link’s Park & Dine mobile app with information showing food lovers where to find the winning eateries. Exciting dining offers from these winning eateries will be rolled out soon!
Spreading the message of love with good food
Among the fun programmes held alongside the Link Good Food tasting event was the Small Missions • Great Talents parent-child cooking competition. Guided by star chef Paul Wong, participating parents and children shared the joy of cooking by making Hong Kong-style wonton and fish balls together.
In addition, this year’s food tasting event featured collaboration with three of the charitable organisations supported by Link Together Initiatives, Link’s flagship charity and community engagement programme, including a food-themed Cantonese opera performance by the Cha Duk Chang Children's Cantonese Opera Association, the collection and redistribution of surplus food from the event to the underprivileged by Food Angel and an experience sharing session by the Hong Kong Guide Dogs Association on training guide dogs. Link also donated HK$10 for each Link Good Food tasting event participant to the Cha Duk Chang Children's Cantonese Opera Association to promote the passing down of traditional Cantonese opera to younger generations, as well as its development.
