Hong Kong's tasty treats, Food, glorious food! Possibly nowhere else in the world is dining out more celebrated than in Hong Kong, where foodies can revel in the broad scope of international cuisines within a compact area. Visitors from overseas can feel right at home thanks to the countless eateries serving delicacies from each and every continent, but Hong Kong's native cuisine is Cantonese, distinctly different from Szechuan and Shanghai taste.
Cantonese fare reflects the traditionally health-conscious culture. Tonics and soups are prepared using carefully combined and measured ingredients to achieve the balance that is so important to the Chinese — the balance of yin (female or cool energy) and yan (male or warm energy), said to determine a person's overall well-being. Not a bit of goodness does a Chinese chef allow to go to waste!
