Get to know the mix of British and Chinese heritage that makes Hong Kong cuisine something special with this tour through the heart of the city. You can learn about the history of local food, from traditional Guangzhou fare to western crossover cuisine, and try out the best tastes for yourself.
You start the day with a traditional breakfast of dim sum in an old tea house with an 85-year history, where the dishes are still served by trolley service. From here, visit a family-run wonton noodle shop that dates back to the 1960s, and then take a tea break to try a cup of milk tea, perhaps the most pervasive legacy of British rule.
Next, a tram ride brings you to another family-run restaurant, which 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. This bakery also has decades of history in Hong Kong, 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. Finish your walking tour in the Wan Chai neighborhood with plenty of knowledge you can use to explore the city further.
