Full description
On this private tour, apart from tasting 10 delicious food and drinks, learn about the huge variety of ingredients that make Hong Kong cuisine so unique, and why this is so essential to the city’s society. Pass by some of Hong Kong's famous highlights along the way and hear the stories behind them with your local guide.

Begin your journey into Hong Kong cuisine and its influences at a dry fish market. Immerse yourself into a new world full of exotic, colorful products as you stroll around with your foodie guide. See sea-cucumbers, ivory-colored swallow nests, colorful dried fish, and more. Learn all about Chinese gastronomic traditions and how the locals use these ingredients to create wonderful dishes.

Then, it’s time to treat your taste buds to 10 delicious tastings of terrific food giving you the true flavor of Hong Kong. First, get the best dim sum experience in a Michelin guide recommended tea house. With the help of your host, choose 3 dim sum to taste from the wide variety wheeled to your table on carts by friendly, old ladies.

Next, visit a typical wet market and learn all about Chinese vegetables, meat, and the cultural function of the building. From there, do as the locals do and savor a famous Shrimp Wonton in a local restaurant. Refresh yourself after with a sugar cane juice in a scenic tea house led by a 4th-generation family.

Head back outside and hit the fresh market street to taste exotic fruit handpicked especially for you by your local host. Then, get on the double-decker tram and take a beautiful ride to another old neighborhood in Hong Kong. Here, enjoy the Dai Pai Dong experience: eat tasty beef noodles in the street with the locals and soak in the vibrant atmosphere of the place.

Finally, end with the locals' favorite snack — pineapple bun and milk tea — at a unique restaurant, Cha Chaan Teng. Munch on your pineapple bun, then wash it down with a refreshing Hong Kong-style milk tea. Don’t forget to ask your local host why it's called pineapple bun when there's no pineapple inside!
