Description

Head to Kowloon's vibrant Jordan District, a working class area that's a local favourite for its authentic and inexpensive restaurants and food stalls.Eat and drink like the locals do - at Hong Kong-style cafés (known locally as cha chaan tengs) and open-air food stalls (known as dai pai dongs). Be warned, this is a tour for true food adventurers. We're steering clear of 5-star restaurants and heading to family-run greasy spoons and chaotic food courts where tourists rarely venture.

Sit elbow-to-elbow with locals, learn how to order in Cantonese, and experience the city's authentic, no-nonsense culinary scene. You'll check out Hong Kong's wet and dry markets where vendors sell fresh and processed produce, and taste treats at a mix of independent diners, street stalls, and food courts with one thing in common: they've set the standard for traditional dishes in the city. You'll taste locals' favorites, from snacks, to mains, to Chinese desserts - sweet or savoury, authentic and tasty! Many of the restaurants you'll visit will be family-run businesses where the owner is also the head chef and the vibe is deliciously authentic. These neighbourhood eateries are considered hidden gems by even locals.

Don't know your dim sum from your wonton? You'll learn plenty of facts about the Hong Kong food scene. Like, did you know Hong Kong has one of world's highest per capita concentrations of cafés and restaurants? Or that Hong Kongers' seafood consumption is four times that of the global average? Or that some specialities are listed as part of the city's official cultural heritage? (Sorry, no spoilers here - you'll have to take the tour to find out the full stories!)

You don't have to worry if you have any food allergies or aversions - your Hong Kong tour guide will help you pick dishes that match your tastes. Our tour is designed so that you pay for your own food along the way, so you won't have to worry about wasting money on food you don't want or like, or contributing to any food waste. If you're still eager for more Hong Kong after all that food, your guide will gladly point out great places to grab a few drinks nearby - no matter whether your tastes are local dive bars or glamorous rooftop lounges that offer breathtaking Victoria Harbour views. We promise it will be an authentic Hong Kong culinary experience.

So...ready to eat like a local?
