This half-day food tour of Hong Kong makes five stops where you sample authentic Cantonese cuisine. Taste dim sum, wonton noodle soup, traditionally roasted meat, milk tea, and an egg tart, all eaten at local restaurants. Learn from your guide about the city's mix of British and Chinese heritage, from Guangzhou influences to Western favorites. A maximum of 9 people only makes this the most immersive food tour available in Hong Kong.

Meet your guide in the morning in the Sheung Wan district of Hong Kong Island and follow on foot to a nearby restaurant. Arrive hungry, as you start the day with a traditional

yum cha (dim sum) breakfast in a decades-old teahouse with lively atmosphere. Find yourself transported back to a bygone era as you sample authentic dumplings still served via trolley.

Head to a family-run restaurant for your next stop to savor wonton noodle soup, established in the 1960s and recommended by the Michelin Guide. Bite into this local specialty, a dish that only a true master can perfect. Have time for a cup of milk tea, perhaps the most pervasive legacy of Hong Kong's former British rule.

Next, travel aboard the Ding Ding (the Hong Kong tramway; own expense) to another family-run restaurant, which dates back to the pre-20th century Qing Dynasty and is renowned for its

char siu (roast BBQ pork). You're served the best BBQ pork in Hong Kong, cooked in the traditional style and served with rice and house-made sauces.

Finish at a well-established bakery, a personal favorite of a former Hong Kong governor. Sink your teeth into an egg tart, or

dan tat in Cantonese, another Chinese version of an English pastry — the custard tart. 

In between visits to these eateries in Sheung Wan, Central, and Wan Chai, stop by a dried seafood shop for a look at ingredients traditionally used in soups, a Chinese medicine shop originating from 1940s, and Hong Kong’s oldest wet market. At the end of your food tour, your guide will explain how to get back to your hotel or give recommendations and directions to another point of interest.

Do not miss this amazing experience of going to authentic local restaurants and sampling foods to die for. Great variety of food samplings and fabulous guide Sinclair. The 4+ hours sped by and only great memories remain of a unique insider look at local cuisine. Great value!

Sinclair did a great job during the food tour. He was engaging and friendly throughout dropping snippets and nuggets of local culture and folklore. 😊 We took up his advise to visit Happy Valley Racecourse that evening and it was quite an experience.😁 Thank you Sinclair. 🙏🏼

Sinclair was a great host. He took us places we would have never seen as tourists. I really liked the explanations of food items at the different shops we visited. I highly recommend this tour.

A lovely tour guide who answered all our questions, many of them before we even asked them! Great work Alex! Thanks again. If you’re thinking about doing this tour, be sure not to have a big lunch! You’ll get plenty of great Cantonese food and knowledge!

Good early morning food tour throughout Hong Kong island. Our tour guide Ivy was engaging and knowledgeable as a local. The tour was curated a bit for Western tastes, which was good for us. Highlight was the Chinese tea house which was packed and full of energy at 9:30AM. Would definitely recommend this tour to someone not sure where to start in the Hong Kong food scene.
