Champagne and chips: the unlikely pair hitting Hong Kong eateries


Regardless of whether you call them chips, fries or frites, these starchy sticks of goodness are loved by just about everyone (except maybe those watching their figures). And just to make the snack even more enticing, Veuve Clicquot has teamed up with Hong Kong’s leading chefs to offer a unique happy hour special: a glass of bubbly paired with an order of gourmet fries.

The “Yellow Hours” special is available at 25 restaurants between 1 May and 30 July.

Each restaurant puts its own spin on the traditional bar food, bringing together bold and unusual ingredients. Some of the more unique offerings are the kimchi supreme fries from BiB n Hops; the spam fries from Bitters & Sweets; the Mapo tofu fries from Bao Bei; and the hand-battered truffle gouda fries (with an optional add-on of garlic poached lobster) from Bungalow.

For those who prefer to keep their potatoes simple, Flying Pig Bistro offers some classic crispy bacon fries, and sweet potato chips are available at a number of eateries.
