Call me biased but I think 2018 is going to be an interesting year for Mexican cuisine and vegetarian food. I reckon more Mexican restaurants – either fine dining or casual – will open and the demand for authentic Mexican food will increase. Customers are increasingly requesting vegetarian dishes. I can totally see a vegan trend that leads to more vegan restaurants or more vegan concepts in existing establishments. Basically, 2018 will be about going green!
It was more about evolution than revolution throughout 2017 in terms of food trends in our city. Hongkongers’ growing preference for vegetarian dining continued, as did a desire for more sustainable eating. Will 2018 maintain this holding pattern or are we in for things new and daring? We speak to those in the know.
