Get to know the cuisine of Hong Kong with a private walking tour to some of the city's most venerable eateries. This journey shows you the mix of British and Chinese heritage that makes the local food something special, all while you try out the best tastes for yourself.
You can start out with some traditional dim sum in a bustling tea house with an 85-year history, where the dishes are still served by trolley service. From here, your guide shows you to a family-run wonton noodle shop that dates back to the 1960s, after which you can experience perhaps the most pervasive legacy of British rule with a cup of milk tea.
Next, a tram ride brings you to a family-run restaurant that dates back to the Qing dynasty and is renowned for its siu mei, or rotisserie meat. Here, you can sample a mixture of roasted meats, all cooked in the traditional style and served with rice and homemade sauces. Finish the tour with an egg tart, a local favorite and a Chinese take on the English custard tart.
Each place you visit has decades of history and tradition behind it, giving you another chance to learn about the food and the local restaurants you're dining in. You can also visit a local dried seafood shop to take a look at the ingredients that are traditionally used in soups, plus a Chinese medicine shop and Hong Kong's oldest wet market, before you finish your tour at the Wan Chai MTR station.
