Overview

Enjoying street food in Hong Kong is more than just a local passion, it’s part of the fabric of everyday life. So what better way to explore the city than eating your way around the very best of the street food scene than with a fellow foodie by your side? Discover where the locals really eat, get lost in back street markets and taste incredible street food from local vendors as you learn a thing or two about the ingredients and dishes that keep the city going at all hours of the day.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Join this personalized experience and your host will create an itinerary for you based on what you would like to do. You won’t have time to see everything, so here are some ideas:
Feast on Hong Kong’s favorite snack, fish balls, which you’ll find served in a variety of ways, from boiled in noodle soup to fried and dipped in heady curry sauce. Then what about some dishes that’ll have you thinking twice? Snake soup is the perfect warm-up in winter, and dim sum with chicken feet is an experience for the adventurous! You’ll be glad of your host's local ordering skills when you visit a cha chan teng for Yangzhou fried rice. At these informal eateries, food is fast, cheap and wildly tasty - but there might not be a menu! Make your own mind up about the polarizing texture of fake shark fin soup and rice rolls, and indulge in silky tofu pudding from your host’s go-to street hawker for dessert.

Great tour, our guide made sure that we ate lovely, local food that the local people enjoyed. She was friendly and made sure that we were comfortable the whole evening. She had a good sense of humour and we shared stories about our respective food cultures.

Went out for the evening with Betha and it was an enjoyable evening for our first night in Hong Kong. She customized the wanderings through the Hong Kong streets and really helped us get a sense of where we were and how things are laid out. I really enjoyed the insights that she provided and the willingness to adventure.

We had an amazing host (Rachel). She took us to several different parts of the city and we tried a number of different foods. This was a great way for us to start our visit to the city. However, it was actually after our excursion that we really appreciated. Due to the protests our flight was canceled and we ended up staying two extra days in Hong Kong. Rachel contacted us to make sure we were okay and also to give us suggestions for other things to do during our unexpected extended stay. We would definitely recommend the company and the guide for anybody coming to Hong Kong.
