Christmas hampers (left) are being sold everywhere and they make practical (if impersonal) gifts. (If you have $128,000 to spare, you can buy the one being sold at Great in Pacific Place.) Even a last-minute Christmas dinner can be a cinch as long as you're willing to pay someone else to prepare it for you. Almost every non-Chinese restaurant is serving special Christmas Eve or Christmas Day feasts, so it's probably best to call your favourite place and see what it's offering. If you have no idea of where to go, here's a rough guide to what restaurants around Hong Kong are serving up. For a meal with a great view, head to Cafe Deco on the Peak. The traditional German meal of roast goose is served at dinner on December 24 and lunch and dinner on Christmas Day. It starts with crawfish and oyster salad and bouillon with porcini secchi and herb gnocchi, before the main course of roast goose with all the trimmings, then ends with warm cinnamon and date pudding with muscadet sabayon and ice cream. The four-course set meal is $468 plus 10 per cent; phone 2849 5111. The Peak Lookout, meanwhile, has a four-course Christmas Day menu with a choice for appetiser of home-cured salmon or chicken liver and foie gras parfait, while for the main course, there's traditional roasted turkey, honey-glazed ham, or baked sole fillets rolled with scallops.
