Stop At: Sheung Wan, west of Central, Hong Kong China

Come and experience the elegant, exotic and hip, the old neighbourhood of Sheung Wan, it is an eclectic blend of shopping experiences dominated by traditional Chinese beliefs and businesses.

The first stop of the food tour will take you to an authentic decades-old dim sum teahouse, a recipient of Michelin Guide for many years until 2020. Don't let its modest interior fool you, the place is always packed with locals. Find yourself transported back to a bygone era as you sample authentic and tasty dumplings that are served out of the traditional dim sum trolley. You will not leave unsatisfied.

Duration: 50 minutes

Stop At: Seafood Street, Sheung Wan, Central and Western District, Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong China

Dried seafood is a common ingredient in Chinese cooking and traditional tonics, and in Hong Kong, this trade is clustered around a section of Des Voeux Road West in Sheung Wan, commonly known as Dried Seafood Street. Come explore and learn about the medicinal properties of the dried seafood used in soups and visit a Chinese medicine shop originating from 1940s.


Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Kai Fat Tea, No.132 Wing Lok Street, Hong Kong China

Tucked away in a narrow road in Sheung Wan area, Kai Fat Tea shop selling tea, assorted candies and other mouth-watering Chinese sweets made from fruits, has been around for more than 30 years. Kai Fat Tea means Tea Inspired House, might be small but it is one of the main tea suppliers to many restaurants and shops in Hong Kong and overseas. Have a taste of delicious candies and sweets offered by the shop on this tour.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Graham Street Market, Graham Street, between Queen's Road and Hollywood Road, Hong Kong China

With more than a century’s history, Graham Street Market is a great place to experience life as a local. The sloped street is flanked by food stalls on either side, selling everything from fresh vegetables to live seafood. Along the market, you’ll also find traditional shops selling items that make for great souvenirs. For example, founded in 1917, the Kowloon Soy Company on Graham Street is renowned for its soy sauce made with traditional techniques. Stopping here we learn about the King Of Sauces.


Duration: 10 minutes

Pass By: Hello Hong Kong: Private & Small Group Tours, Gough Street, Central, Hong Kong China

Right on the cusp of what used to be the home of Hong Kong Island’s European and Chinese communities, Gough Street’s sleepy pace, colonial-style chic, hip boutiques and fashionable restaurants have baited a good mix of designer homewares stores, with funky retailers contributing to one of Hong Kong’s most eclectic neighbourhoods.

Stop At: Central and Western District, Hong Kong China

One of the oldest yet also most dynamic districts in the city, Central and Western District – encompassing the sloped streets and small alleys – encapsulates Hong Kong’s rich and diverse spirit. A place where century-old temples share the same streets as fashion-forward concept stores, or where authentic tea houses coexist with modern art galleries, this colourful neighbourhood is at once old and new while also being proudly local and unmistakably global.

Stop and satisfy your palate with one of Hong Kong's best Wonton Noodles at a family-run, recommended by Michelin Guide restaurant, that has been running for 3rd generation since World War II.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Mid-levels Escalator, Connaught Road, Central and West Distict, Hong Kong China

Experience Mid-Levels Escalator, the longest outdoor escalator in the world. It is 800 meters in distance and elevates 135 meters up to the hilly areas that end in Conduit Road.

Located next to the escalator is a modest-looking but renowned milk tea place. The secret to the signature milk tea has been straining the brew through a pair of pantyhose for an extra smooth taste!


Duration: 15 minutes

Pass By: Tai Kwun - Centre for Heritage and Arts, 10 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong China

Tai Kwun presents a wide range of heritage, contemporary art, performing arts and lifestyle experiences in the restored and revitalised Central Police Station compound, which comprises three Declared Monuments, the former Central Police Station, the Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison. It is the recipient of the Award of Excellence in the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation 2019.


Stop At: Hong Kong Tramways (Ding Ding), Hong Kong China

Board and enjoy the ride of Hong Kong's electric tram system. It is one of the oldest public transports in the city, first operated in 1904 under British rule and it owns the world's largest operational double-decker tram fleet. The system, being very affordable, is also one of the most environmentally friendly ways of travelling in the city. Learn about notable buildings that you pass by.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Wan Chai, Hong Kong China

Here our food tour stops at another family-run, Michelin Guide recommended restaurant, which dates back to the pre-20th century Qing Dynasty and is renowned for its Char Siu Fan (roast BBQ pork rice). It is a must-stop for everyone who claimed themselves as foodies. Try the Char Siu Fan, the pork is just the right amount of meat, fat and sauce, the contents of which they keep a closely guarded secret. This is the late Anthony Bourdain's favourite. You will leave with a smile and a happy belly.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Hong Kong Hennessy Road, Wan Chai District, Hong Kong China

Our last stop on the food tour is at a well-established bakery, a personal favorite of a former Hong Kong governor. Get your hands on some of the famous Egg Tart, or Dan Tat in Cantonese, a Chinese version of an English pastry — the custard tart.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Southorn Playground, Southorn Playground, Hong Kong

Packed with spectators, sportsmen, and people who want to get away for a quick break from the office and have a bite to eat while watching the crowd goes by, the sports and recreational ground in Wan Chai is the perfect place to end the tour, accompanied with a bite of a nice and creamy egg tart from the bakery. A sweet ending indeed.

Guide was knowledgeable, friendly and great. He was well prepared and ensured our food restrictions were taken care of while still ensuring we tried various things. He also was patient and willing to stop and entertain all our questions enroute

Great tour with sampling of different foods at restaurants where locals were eating. Our guide, Sinclair, was wonderful.

Sinclair was one of the best tour guide that I have had in all the years of my travel. My wife and I and son and joyed his tour as well as his understanding of all things food and the surrounding areas. We were involved with part of the disturbance while in Hong Kong and Sinclair was able to get us out of harms way and safe. I would recommend him again in an instant!

I have done food tours all across Asia and this by far is the best one. It was well coordinated, our guide was very knowledgeable, well spoken, and fun. The food was amazing and he took us to Michelin Star places you would never find on your own. I highly recommend this tour.
