FutureStarrWhat to eat in Hong Kong
Asian cities change quickly and change quickly in a blink of an eye. Hong Kong's population has grown to 7.5 million people and is now the Delta’s third largest city. The Pearl River Delta has expanded larger than Tokyo and is the region's third biggest city in the region. We spend 48 hours on a cruise to Hong Kong, starting with a trip to Taipei and Fukuoka in the port of origination, on a luxury cruise that can take over 1,400 passengers.
Sichuan-style wontons are famous for their thin skin and rich meat filling as well as their soup, made of chicken, duck, and pork. A more Hong Kong style version would be cooked without peppers and instead pieces of salted fish. It's very popular and much ordered in restaurants or dai pai dong (traditional licensed food stalls) together with rice. The taste texture is very smooth and quite oily. It's extremely popular in Chengdu restaurants and is often served with rice, rice or fish.
Hong Kong's food scene spans the gamut from street stalls to Michelin-starred restaurants. However, like many travelers, our two-day Hong Kong itinerary only allowed us two days. The result was a jam-packed visit filled with some of the best things to eat in Hong Kong. We suggest the following Hong Kong food experiences for culinarily curious travelers with limited time in one of the world’s best food cities:
Tim Ho Wan is one of the best places to eat dim sum in Hong Kong. Dim sum is traditionally served with hot tea and served in bamboo steamers. The Michelin-starred dim sum restaurant is known for its expertly crafted and freshly prepared dishes. Must-orders include steamd siu mai, har gow (prawn dumplings) and the fluffy barbecued pork-filled buns. The best dim sum is served at an ancient Chinese tradition of drinking tea, known as yum cha.
Fish balls are made of fried fish meat and sold in Hong Kong street markets. They are usually cooked and served as a important ingredient of hot pot or hot soup. In 2002, the average consumption of fish balls was 55 metric tons (about 3.75 million fish balls) The fish balls are usually sold in traditional Hong Kong markets and sold uncooked in uncooked and cooked uncooked. The price is higher and taste different to the first type of fish balled which is served in traditional markets and super markets.
Sweet and sour pork is probably the most famous Hong Kong food. It is made with battered pork and stir fried in a tangy orange sauce. The bite sized pieces of pork are battered and deep fried. It's not my personal favorite dish to eat in Hong Kong, but when it's not too sweet, it can taste pretty good. We've even produced a video of how to make it and make it in a sweet and vinegary sauce.

Hong Kong-style milk tea has become a symbol of Hong Kong culture. It is a popular part of the city's daily life. It consists of Ceylon black tea, evaporated milk and sugar. Different ingredients and cooking methods produce various flavors of the tea. The tea is served in traditional Hong Kong restaurants and outside restaurants in Hong Kong and Western Hong Kong. In Hong Kong films, actors often mention it in dialogues about it in a milk tea cup in a popular way of expressing their feelings.
A pineapple bun is fluffy, crusty and sweet with a crumbly crust at the same time. The pastry got its name because the outside top of the bun looks kind of like a pineapple. It's best eaten with a thick slab of cold butter in the middle. The crusty crust on the top is made from sugar, eggs, flour and lard, baked until golden-brown. The treat is not healthy by any means but that’s what makes it so good.
Hong Kong's favourite wonton noodle soup dishes are topped with prawn-filled wonton dumplings. Similar dishes have been exported all over Southeast Asia. Even in Thailand, there is a huge fan of eating Thai style bamee as well, but in Hong Kong, it's a must-have-to-eat staple of the country's famous wonton dish. Try a bowl of wonton noodles at Mak Man Kee, which is a Hong Kong delicately made by the city's main street eatery.
French toast isn't just a thin slice of bread dipped in eggs and a mound of butter. It’s often layered in peanut butter before being deep fried. It's really more of a dessert than a breakfast dish, and the bread is often topped with syrup and more butter. Hong Kong food has a long history of foreign influence and is known to have originated in Hong Kong cafes and street food stalls in the 1990s and early 2000s. At least one of Hong Kong's favorite places to enjoy French toast is in New York City, New York.
Hong Kong-style egg tarts are first introduced in China by the Portuguese in the 1940s. The tart tart is made of butter and flour, made from a crumbly, flaky pastry. Visit local bakeries such as Door Door Bakery for a fresh slice of the sweetest custard nestles in the tarts, and they're best eaten fresh and warm out of the oven. The custard-shaped tarts have been popular in Hong Kong for decades, and are often eaten with afternoon tea.
Fried rice is one of the greatest types of fried rice to eat in Hong Kong. Egg, ham, and some bits of seafood are fried with rice and curry flavoring. The fried rice has a brilliant wok hei taste, and the curry flavor just makes it an incredible type of rice. It is made in an extremely hot wok, while keeping the flame at a precise heat, to ensure it is hot enough for the rice to get cooked properly in a wok. The recipe is a classic version of curry fried rice.
Soft tofu pudding is a common dessert throughout China. The texture of this soft and silky is similar to a really fine pudding. In Cantonese cooking it's usually either topped with ginger or sweet syrup. Similar to tofu pudding, steamed milk is a popular dessert from Gurangdong Province. You can try tofu pudding at Kung Wo Dou Ban Chong, a legendary tofu house. The dessert can be topped with a number of different sweet toppings, including ginger and sweet syrup, but not all of them are sweet.
