|The winners of the ‘Link Good Food’ campaign are out! The ‘Link Good Food’ food tasting event organised by Link was held over the weekend (3-4 October) at Lok Fu Plaza. Over 1,800 members of the public were invited to sample the delicacies from the finalists of the ten popular food categories from 28 stalls and picked the final winners with their votes.
Linking people with local delicacies
In an effort to promote local delicacies, Link appealed to Hongkongers to vote for their favourite restaurants/ food stalls that offer Hong Kong’s ten popular food categories. More than 100 restaurants/ food stalls were nominated within a week with over 4,500 people voting for their favourite eateries. The finalists gathered at Lok Fu Plaza over the weekend where they competed with their best efforts to delight more than 1,800 Hong Kong food lovers and over a dozen of food bloggers. They were joined by a judging panel comprising the media and creativity veteran Man-cheuk Lai, food connoisseur Ka-kuen Leung and food columnist Agnes Chee, who cast their votes for the ‘Link Good Food’ champions.
BC Lo, Director of Corporate Communications and External Relations of Link are glad to see the overwhelming response from the participants including the food operators and members of the public. He remarked that over 30% of Link’s tenants are in the dining and food businesses, offering a great variety of F&B choices to the communities Link serves. The ‘Link Good Food’ campaign allows Link to provide a platform for food operators to learn from counterparts while delighting customers in promoting local delicacies and providing the chance for tenants to engage directly with shoppers. It is also an occasion for Link to demonstrate its vision to serve and improve the lives of those around us and link people to a brighter future.
Man-cheuk Lai, a member of the judging panel, stated that these local delicacies are part of Hong Kong’s iconic food culture. By organising the ‘Link Good Food’ campaign, Link has helped Hong Kong people to know more about the small operators and food stalls that keep local food culture alive.
Mr Wong, representative of the winning Hung Kee Chinese BBQ Meat added that it has been a rare opportunity for him as the competition not only allowed him to share their experience with other operators in the food industry but also offer a chance for them to meet the public and share the happiness of having good food.
