Itinerary
  • Start Your Day with Dim Sumexpand_more

    Start the day with a traditional Dim Sum breakfast in an old tea house. You find yourselves transported back to a bygone era as you sample the most authentic Dim Sum available in HK. This is the granddaddy of Dim Sum restaurants, it's crowded, it's noisy, it has a 90-year history in Hong Kong and the Dim Sum is still served via trolley service.

  • Slurp Wonton Noodlesexpand_more

    The next stop is a family-run Wonton Noodle shop that dates back to the 1960s and is recommended by the Michelin Guide. Wonton Noodles are a local food speciality, a simple dish but one that only a true master can perfect.

  • Time for a Tea Breakexpand_more

    After your second food sampling, you take a tea break and try a cup of Milk Tea, perhaps the most pervasive legacy of British rule. It’s not everyone’s ‘cup of tea’ but it is a fascinating beverage that Hong Kongers love!

  • Ready for BBQ Porkexpand_more

    After your tea break, travel by Ding Ding (tram) to another family-run restaurant, which dates back to the Qing Dynasty (pre-1900’s) and is renowned for its Siu Mei, or in English, Roast Meat. 

    Here you sample the best Char Siu (BBQ Pork) in Hong Kong, cooked in the traditional style, served with rice and homemade sauces. This is another Michelin recommendation and a favourite of the renowned chef and food critic Anthony Bourdain.

  • End with an Egg Tartexpand_more

    Finish the Hong Kong Food Tour with a Hello Hong Kong favourite, an Egg Tart, or in Cantonese, Dan Tat. This is another Chinese take on an English speciality - the custard tart. Like the other restaurants, the bakery you visit has a long history in Hong Kong and is a personal favourite of former HK Governor Chris Patten.

What to bring

Bring your appetite! This is a food tour and over the course of the tour, you will eat quite a lot of food. Please do not eat breakfast before you come. Don’t forget your camera, as you will be walking through some of the most interesting parts of Hong Kong and there will be lots to take pictures of. 

Know before you go

This tour is not suitable for vegetarians or people with seafood allergies.  
Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.

When Hello Hong Kong first set up back in 2014, they ONLY offered food tours. This is the original Hong Kong food tour, with a few updates to keep it new and exciting. Food has remained a passion at Hello Hong Kong and the food tour continues to be the most highly ranked on Tripadvisor and Viator. 

This food tour is a perfect introduction to Hong Kong’s food. It is ideal for people who want to enjoy delicious, high-quality local food in local eateries surrounded by local people. There is nothing weird and wonderful on this tour (apart from the chicken's feet)! If you are a more adventurous eater, please ask for a Kowloon food tour focused on street food.

Over the course of the food tour, you will undertake an exploration of Hong Kong’s food culture. Hong Kong food is primarily Cantonese cuisine but with some small key differences which reflect the city’s mixed British and Chinese heritage. On this tour, you learn about the history of food in Hong Kong, from the traditional fare from Guangzhou to the interesting western crossover cuisine that started popping up in the 1950s as local chefs tried to produce cheap versions of British and Western favourites.
