Readers of a certain vintage will most likely be familiar with the name Nicholas Tse -- Hong Kong singer, actor, and lately, food aficionado.
His latest collaboration in the food arena involves another mega player, McDonald's Hong Kong, resulting in a special menu inspired by comfort food from his childhood.
Here's a promotional video featuring Tse:
Called "My Taste of Hong Kong", Tse's menu features familiar flavours from traditional cha chaan teng (tea restaurants) and Hong Kong street foods.
Extensive six-item menu
So, what can you get besides a place mat with Tse's handsome face? A rather extensive six-item menu:
- Bolognese & Fried Egg Angus Beef Burger
- Fried Onion Crispy Pork Cutlet Burger
- Siew Mei (Hong Kong style roast meat) -flavoured Shake Shake Fries
- Typhoon Shelter Crab-flavoured Shake Shake Fries
- Cookie & Milk Tea McFlurry ice cream
- Tropical Orange Punch
Here's a promotional poster featuring Tse, presumably hard at work assembling the Angus beef burger:
Here are the Siew Mei-flavoured Shake Shake Fries and Tropical Orange Punch:
All items (except the pork cutlet burger and the crab-flavoured Shake Shake Fries) have been released.
The remaining two items will be released in the coming weeks, according to 8 Days.
What the food looks like in real life:
Promotional photos always look good, but does the food really match up at ground zero?
We went onto Instagram to check them out under the hashtag #鋒味 - a wordplay on the Tse's Chinese name and the Chinese phrase for "taste".
Here are photos of the Bolognese & Fried Egg Angus Beef Burger:
