One of the major appeals of Hong Kong for tourists is the abundance of high quality, tantalising cuisine for all appetites. A variety of traditional and modern dishes are found throughout Hong Kong, ranging from roasted meat and birds, handmade noodles topped with lard, to black squid balls. Hong Kong style French toast, sweet tofu soup, and wonton noodles are must-try foods. Fast food and international options are everywhere but most visitors like to experience street vendor food or more authentic, quirky, local foods.
Hong Kong Fast Food
When you’re after a more relaxed food experience you’ll find speedy service on just about every corner in Hong Kong. Hong Kong diners or teahouses are known for serving a combination of western and Chinese dishes in a casual environment. Try Café de Coral for its famous baked pork chop with rice or Maxim’s MX for its special milk drinks and barbecued meats.
Hong Kong Fine Dining
For those with money to spend and time to spare there’s no shortage of fine dining options throughout Hong Kong. Over 30 different 5-star restaurants call Hong Kong home and they don’t just belong inside the walls of flash hotels. L’atelier de Joel Robuchon transforms traditional French dishes with a touch of creativity and class. This establishment has been praised for its cherry gazpacho and French cheese repertoire. Ming Court in Kowloon specialises in Asian style dishes, such as abalone and prawn noodles.
Hong Kong Local Specialties
Hong Kong dim sum is favoured around the world, with Cantonese restaurants competing to share their creations with tourists. San Hing in Kennedy Town is a favourite for late-night dim sum cravings, technically opening at 3am! Miniature wife cakes are a Hong Kong staple- pork lard, almond paste and winter melon in a bite size portion. All bakeries sell them but Hang Heung is one of the best. Make sure to also try pineapple buns and chicken feet, both are pure Hong Kong delights.
