Description

Eat like a local on this food tour of Hong Kong and discover why the city is one of the food capitals of the world! You'll begin your guided tour by meeting in the Sheung Wan district of Hong Kong Island, then make your way to an old tea house to have a breakfast of yum cha (dim sum) served by trolley. As you dine, take in the restaurant’s atmosphere — lively and crowded with a history that dates back almost a century. Then, head to a Michelin Guide recommended family-run business from the 1960s for wonton noodles. While simple, the Hong Kong specialty can only be perfected by a local master. Continue your tour with a cup of milk tea, one of the most pervasive pieces of the city’s food culture that remains from the days of British rule. Next, take a ride on the Ding Ding (the Hong Kong tramway; pay for your ride on-site) to another family-run restaurant, which dates back to the Qing dynasty (pre-20th century) and is renowned for its English char siu (roast meat). Taste a mixture of traditional roasted meats served with rice and homemade sauces before ending your foodie adventure with a dan tat (egg tart), another Chinese take on an English dish, the custard tart. Your tart comes from a local bakery with a 60-year history, a favorite of one former Hong Kong governor. Throughout the tour, you'll get to learn about Hong Kong’s food history from your knowledgeable guide, and make stops at various places including a local tea shop to try preserved "candies," a family-run soy sauce producer, a dried seafood shop, a Chinese medicine shop from the 1940s, and the city’s oldest wet market. Note that this small-group food tour of Hong Kong is not a private tour; your tour group will include other guests. Each small-group tour is limited to a maximum of nine participants.
