(Hong Kong, 3 December 2018) – To celebrate Christmas, popular neighbourhood restaurant FRANCIS is adding some new festive fare from Tel Aviv, near where Christ was born, to its popular line up of Middle Eastern-inspired street food.
“We're staying true to our mission, so there’ll be no expensive Christmas set meals, but we’ll be providing an affordable and genial atmosphere to drop by and celebrate with friends any time over the festive season,” says founder James Ward.
The new seasonal specials, which will be available throughout the whole festive period from 10th to 31st December include a delicious slow-cooked whole baby lamb served as a series of different sharing plates; and charred brussel sprouts with slow cooked egg; and on the sweet side, pecan atayef with sumac and sweet sticky dates.
In addition FRANCIS’ new monthly Skew It brunch which comprises a choice of grilled meats and a selection of mezzes for the table will continue running from 12-3:30pm on the 24th, 25th and 30th (all day 12.00-10.30pm) December 2018, and also for the first day of 2019 to kick start a good new year.
There’s also a special festive wine list, with magnums from each of the 5 continents available by the glass.
For those who are looking for Christmas presents, the FRANCIS Spice Gift Set, priced at HK$1,000, comes with a dining voucher of the same value in a beautifully packed box set of six of the essential Middle Eastern SPICES used by Israeli born chef Asher Goldstein in his delicious Tel Aviv street food. Tins of cumin, paprika, fenugreek, baharat, sumac and zaatar, are beautifully wrapped and labelled in true FRANCIS fashion. The set comes complete with recipes to help you recreate some of Asher’s irresistible menu creations at home.
Wine lovers will be surprised by the FRANCIS Wine Box (HK$2,500), a carefully curated box set of 6 great WINES selected by Sommelier Simone Sammuri, recently awarded Sommelier of the Year by VinItaly International. The new home wine selection will change every month and is available starting from December.
For the first time, FRANCIS will be taking reservations from 8pm onwards on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
