What You Can Expect

Hong Kong Food Tour: Central and Sheung Wan Districts

At Tea Studio

Meet your guide and small group in the afternoon at a designated place on Queen’s Road Central, located in Hong Kong’s thriving business district. Then follow your guide on a foodie adventure through the alleyways of Central and its neighbor Sheung Wan, visiting six family-run hot spots – from a noodle shop to a local bakery – for tastings both savory and sweet! (Please note: All food venues are subject to change.)

Begin your culinary walking tour with a stop at a wonton noodle shop, an award-winning family restaurant started by the grandfather of a brother-sister team. Savor delicious wontons with noodles and intensely flavored broth before moving on to a restaurant specializing in roasted meat. Here, taste a bowl of succulent roast meat rice and learn how the owner of more than 30 years has perfected the juicy meat. Continue to one of the neighborhood’s oldest shops to gulp a refreshing glass of juice, containing elements that balance the delightful flavors on your food tour.

Next, follow your guide to one of Hong Kong’s greatest hidden treasures – a private tea house, set in a Chinese courtyard. Sip a handpicked selection of high-quality cha (tea), meant to aid with digestion. As you meander with your guide from one tasting location to another, walk through an open market, where you can watch how the locals bargain over fresh fish.

At Dim Sum corner, where you’ll find siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews all helping out with the family-run business, sample a selection of dim sum and you’ll want to come back for more. Finally, your guide will lead your small group down a side alley to check out a little bakery where you can relish your dessert – freshly baked tarts still hot from the oven – yum!

Throughout your culinary and cultural tour, your local guide – a food connoisseur – will lead you past beautiful colonial architecture in the business district, and share interesting facts and anecdotes about Central and Sheung Wan. Learn about Hong Kong’s food culture and food industry, as well as its cultural heritage, living conditions and history of development.

After visiting several hidden gems of this commercial area – far from the busy shopping malls and typical sightseeing spots – you’ll gain new insight into Hong Kong. At the end of your tour, your guide will help you with directions to get back to the starting location or point you to the Sheung Wan MTR station.

Definitely worth it. Had a lot of fun exploring the Central and Sheung Wang area restaurants. We got surprised by a few rain showers while walking from place to place, but that made it all the more memorable. Yammy our guide did a fantastic job.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone. Cliff, our guide, was knowledgable, engaging and entertaining. We visited 6 places that are 3rd and 4th generation owned which really gave us insight into the Hong Kong culture. This was by far our favorite tour in Hong Kong. Thank you, Cliff!!

This tour was awesome! Over 3 hours of cultural and culinary adventure where in a small group we were lead by a friendly local who led us though delicious authentic restaurants, the wet market, bakeries, and other small businesses. Everything was delicious and it felt like there were new surprises at each place. We left full with food and with insider's information including useful Cantonese phrases and what makes certain restaurants special in Hong Kong. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone.

This is a must tour! Food tasting and history of the area were GREAT. I have never had wontons the size of ping pong balls, or baked pork buns that melt in your mouth. Oh, and the warm egg custard to finish the night was great! I recommend this tour for people of ALL ages. We had kids on our tour that loved trying new things!

Our tour guide's name was Livana spelling? She was excellent. One of the highlights of our Hong Kong trip! We went to a family owned restaurants we probably would never have found on our own. First a wonton restaurant where we had the best pork belly wontons we've ever tasted. Ever! Then to a a meat restaurant for the best barbecued pork we've ever tasted. Ever! Then to a Sugar Cane factory where we tasted pure sugar cane juice. Then to a Dim Sum restaurant which I felt was just mediocre and afterward we went to a bakery where we tasted yummy egg tarts! I highly recommend!

Highly recommend both for the food and learning more about Hong Kong. Our guide, Silvana, was so knowledgeable about both the food and history, and was very proud of her city. Food was excellent and we were amazed at the portion size.
