With one of the highest number of restaurants per capita in the world, Hong Kong, a city where east meets west, is a gourmand’s paradise.
Whether it’s local, cheap and quick, or a three-hour degustation, you will find prime examples on the shores of the Fragrant Harbour.
This is the city where star-spangled celebrity chefs and up-and- coming talents go head to head to compete for some of the most discerning diners in the world, so it's no surprise that when it comes to anything food related, the bar is set high. Not just award-winning restaurants, but cafés and roadside stalls (dai pai dongs) are just two examples of the alternative establishments bringing some of the most delectable food to the plate.
There are plenty of reasons to visit one of many celebrated food locales, but you should also take the time to feast your eyes on some lesser-known sights – or at least walk around while you digest. A growing arts and music scene combined with traditional apartment buildings and beautiful parklands make for an interesting back drop to your culinary exploration.
If you are pressed for time and can’t spend a whole day in a designated area, try an under the rader restaurant on the must-visit list buti s yet to be disocevered. Whatever you do, enjoy your time in Hong Kong by letting your taste buds guide the way.
