One of the best ways to understand a new culture and get to know more about the country is by tasting some of its most popular dishes. As we all know every country has its own unique cuisine and there are so many delicious dishes you must eat in Hong Kong. The city is known as a “foodie’s paradise” for a reason - its food selections is diverse and bursting in right textures and flavors. You might imagine that Hong Kong food matches the sleek skyscraper and sky-high cocktail bars, but the food that I love (and the rest of the city), is a lot more down to earth - street level to be exact. When it comes to experiencing Hong Kong food culture, it’s all about eating street food, regardless of how much money you make. Pick up street food and stop by a cha chaang teng - a small local eatery - and you’ll be well on your way with a must eat Hong Kong list! Among all of the hundreds of dishes to choose from, here are my five recommendations of what to eat Hong Kong.
