Special Menus and Offers

The Butchers Club Burger whats new 852

The Butchers Club Burger

The Butchers Club Burger is out to prove that its has more to offer than dry-aged burgers and duck fat fries with its newest limited-edition menu item – The Butchers Club Sandwich ($140). An acronym for Chicken Lettuce Under Bacon, the sandwich has quite the array of fillings – with free-range buttermilk fried chicken, tomatoes, rocket salad, cheddar, honey mustard mayo, crispy bacon, crushed avocado, and homemade organic egg salad, all sandwiched between a toasted handmade ciabatta. We’re not sure how all that is going to fit into one mere sandwich, but it definitely sounds impressive, and we can’t wait to try it! The sandwich is available at all The Butchers Club Burger stores.

Lily & Bloom

Lily & Bloom is making up for Hong Kong’s lack of 4th-of-July fireworks with a boozy all-American party on that very Wednesday from 6pm till late. At $388 per person, the restaurant will be serving all-you-can-eat American fare, including house-smoked Baby Back Ribs and parmesan-crusted Baked Mac N’ Cheese, which you can then wash down with unlimited Peroni beer. There will also be a live DJ spinning American rock and hip hop throughout the night. And get ready to unleash your inner carnivore at the Wings Eating contest, with whoever eats the most wings in thirty seconds scoring a bottle of champagne on the house!
