Sara Bunny - Hong Kong On A Plate

If you’re visiting Hong Kong, it can be hard not to feel overwhelmed by the thronging mass of endless skyscrapers, shopping malls, congested streets and constant crowds.

But if you’re a foodie, one of the best ways to access this frenetic city is through its culinary delights. Sign up for a foodie adventure and you’ll not only learn to eat like a local, you’ll also meet some charismatic cooks, hear some tall stories, and uncover the city’s softer side.

Hong Kong Foodie tasting tours have a number of different circuits available, with the Central and Sheung Wan tour one of the most popular.

On the tour, expect to find yourself ushered along narrow side streets and rickety staircases, past dusty antique shops and lively fishmongers, where you will be welcomed into several family-run restaurants.

Each stop on the tour has its own specialty, whether it be wonton noodle soup (best slurped loudly), an array of meats (pigeon, anyone?), or refreshing bottles of sugar cane juice.

If you have a sweet tooth, make a detour to one of many cake shops. A favourite in the Central area is Hei Lee, where freshly baked custard tarts, still hot from the oven, are wolfed down by eager customers.

In Central, the streets are constantly alive with the theatre of everyday life, and its best to enjoy the show with a full stomach and a cake in hand.
