Lazy Indian food fans will be delighted to hear that serial the Beijinger Restaurant Awards winning Indian restaurant Ganges has launched online ordering for its delivery service. Better yet, there's no delivery fee, which gives them a leg up on alternative delivery options for Indian food.

If you fancy tapas in a refined, and not-to-mention historic, surroundings, then call by the Writer's Bar in Raffles Hotel for their tapas promotion. Starting from just RMB 18 per plate, the tapas menu includes favorites like tomato and mozzarella bruschetta (RMB 18), San Danielle ham with olive oil-toasted farmer's bread (RMB 48) and Manchego cheese with marinated olives (RMB 28). Wash it down with one of eight Raffles Signature Slings (or all eight if you're so inclined ...), inspired by Raffles properties around the world. 

Tickets are now on sale for Hatsune's 13th anniversary party on September 4. You can pick up advance tickets for RMB 150 (RMB 200 on the door) from the restaurant's Guanghua Lu, Sanlitun and Kerry Centre locations. Anyone who has been to one of Hatsune's parties before will know this is a good deal (think pretty-much-unlimited cocktails).

It looks like Ramo, the latest venture from The Box's Paca Lee, has opened in the former El Nido Restaurant space on Fangjia Hutong. They were in soft opening last weekend according to Beijing Boyce, but we'll have more on this spot soon.

A few picks for events and promotions this week:

  • Join The Cleaver Quarterly to celebrate the launch of their second issue. They'll also be unveiling the fennel and Sichuan molasses porter brewed up by Great Leap's Carl Setzer to mark the launch. As a one-time only special offer, you can pick up your copy of issue two and one of these fall-flavored brews for just RMB 75 between 2-6pm. 
  • Cheaper than a flight to Honolulu, visit Hilton Beijing's "Fly Me To Hawaii" food festival instead. Elements and One East Restaurants will be serving up buffet and a la carte dishes respectively, all created by Jeffrey Vigilla, executive chef of Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort
  • Hagaki in the East Hotel has a fabulous deal on Saturday and Sunday nights: all-you-can-eat a la carte Japanese dishes for just RMB 238 (plus 15 percent service charge).
