Hong Kong is a living, breathing superorganism; always in flux, always vibrantly alive. Nowhere is Hong Kong’s dynamic play of culture and history more apparent than in the vivacious food scene, where threads of tradition tie a plethora of favorites together, with each individual family and restaurant adding their own spin on things. To experience this positively cincilating food scene and find where to eat in Hong Kong with any measure of efficiency in a city of this size, it only seems logical that a helping hand would be welcome. I’ve put together the ultimate Hong Kong food guide for exactly that reason; to help visitors find the most delicious delicacies and best places to eat in Hong Kong. If you want to experience an authentic food scene be sure to hit the streets and go where the locals go!
To start off, you might need a few etiquette pointers. First, prepare yourself for a quick and efficient meal; in a city with this many inhabitants you can be sure that popular local spots have a quick table turnover, and it’s not unlikely you’ll end up sharing a table with strangers! Order several dishes to share with your companions (but of course, no need to share with strangers at your table, they won’t expect this) and be a good friend by topping up your buddy’s tea or beer. Alternatively, be ready to tap your finger lightly on the table in thanks when your drink is refilled!
