Reinventing traditional dim sum dishes and creating completely new ones in different forms has been a popular development in Hong Kong over the last 5+ years. Especially with the fast development of social media, there are so many equally attractive and tasty dishes out there now expanding a person's dining experience. Not just there in person and with friends, but also online with others.
I do not know if it is just my observation, but since the end of 2020 and now at the beginning of 2021 there seems to be quite a surge in bakeries opening around Hong Kong. Even near my home there has been two new bakeries just within one minute walking distance. I am not talking about your local bakeries, but more diverse and unique baked goods that are only available at that specific bakery chain/ brand.

This French cake is made with flaky pastry and a variety of tasty fillings, plus you get an agnès b. paper crown of course! Price is HK$390 and you can purchase it online or at it stores. Never tried it myself, but when I read that the filling has chocolate and walnut, that does make me curious into how it tastes. Maybe someone will buy me one to try this year!
What has been popular in the food and beverage industry in Hong Kong at the end of 2020? I would say that one of the things is smoked meats and we now have a new collab to announce with Honbo and CRFT Pit.
The burger concept (Honbo) is partnering with the artisan smokehouse (CRFT Pit) offering customers of Basehall some tasty looking American BBQ...
