Once a British Colony, present day Hong Kong is one of the two special administrative regions of the People’s Republic of China. However, Hong Kong exercises a high degree of autonomy as stipulated in their constitutional document with regard to all aspects except military and defence. Nevertheless, the majority of citizens of the region are of Chinese descent whilst the rest is made up of Indians, Vietnamese and European citizens, to name a few. Hence, it is no surprise that the cuisine in the region is rather diverse and is full of interesting flavours that would thrill any lover of food.


Whether you are in the mood to try your hand at the local cuisine or whether you wish for the comfort of your own cuisine, a restaurant or eatery in Hong Kong is sure to fulfil your needs. Once in the region, there are a number of foods that you must try. Among these are Dim Sums, seafood and Chinese barbecue known as ‘siu mei’. If you wish for a light yet filling meal, dim sums are ideal for they are a type of steamed food and avoid oil. Seafood, of course, is one delectable delight that Hong Kong surely knows how to cook so it is essential that you make your way to a seafood district and enjoy fish, crab, lobster, shrimp and more either baked, steamed, grilled or stuffed.


Wrap up your meal with a sweet and deliciously authentic dessert by indulging in classics such as Tangyuan, a sweet rice dumpling, mango pudding, made with fresh mangoes and durian desserts in the form of ice cream, sorbets and slushies!

If you are in need of a quick snack, the streets of the city are sure to give you something that is both delicious and filling so make your way to a street vendor and treat yourself to either a pineapple bun, an egg tart or a Put Chai Ko, a pudding made of flour and red beans.
