Hong Kong Foodie Tours

Food Chronicles

Taste and discover Central & Sheung Wan like a local

Today’s food tours give touristy tours a higher caliber reputation. Food passionate locals and expats lead travelers around the cities’ best foods while educating them about history and culture. You can read about my other food tour experiences here

I frequent Hong Kong at least 5 times a year. Almost 20 years later, I finally took a food tour with Hong Kong Foodie Tours and learned even more about my favorite city.

 

The Tour Guide

The reason I signed up for this tour is because the company’s newest tour guide is my best friend of 18 years. He is also one of my travel companions and a fellow passionate food lover. So while there may be a bias because he is such a good friend, we have similar tastes and he knows my high standard for good food.

During and after the tour, I was beyond impressed and proud with how he presented Hong Kong’s history, culture, architecture, and economy in one afternoon during this deliciously epic food tour.

Central & Sheung Wan Tour

The company’s first and signature tour covers what can be known as quintessential Hong Kong in the Central & Sheung Wan tour.

For 750 HKD (~$96 USD), the tour includes 6 tastings of the most popular everyday foods in Hong Kong with wonton noodle soup, roast meat over rice, fresh juice, preserved fruits, dim sum, and dessert at a local bakery.

While some may argue a food tour is an unnecessary expense and they can just eat at these establishments on their own, the true value of the tour comes with the access to kitchens, with the guides’ rapport with the owners, and the immense knowledge, stories, and details of the history and culture of these locals’ beloved city.

The walking tour of Central & Sheung Wan includes strolling through famous outdoor markets and learning about the history and modern changes that have been affecting these generations-old vendors
You not only walk around the city and taste popular foods, you also have access to the kitchens. Here is an exclusive tour of the roast meat kitchen where the pigs are roasted in a special oven
With 6 tastings, you will definitely be adequately fed in this afternoon tour, starting with a filling bowl of wonton noodle soup featuring one of the biggest wontons in the city, which are bigger than the size of a golf ball
Classic staples, including this bowl of barbecued pork over rice for the ultimate Hong Kong comfort food. While these dishes may be familiar, there is value in learning about the history of these establishments
You cannot have an afternoon food tour without proper dim sum. At this filling dim sum stop, you will also learn about local tea etiquette while tasting a variety of the most popular dim sum selections
