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.

Our tour was sourced through Hong Kong Foodie Tasting Tours. Silvana and Yammy did an excellent job of teaching us about Hong Kong cuisine and history. The food was delicious!

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.

Our Foodies Tour was Awesome!! We enjoyed every minute of the Tour and the food was exceptional. Our Host Silvanah was full a local knowledge both on the history of hong kong and the local food.
Our first stop for noodles and wonton was great, the BBQ pork was the best we had ever tasted and the tour of the kitchen was great. There was more than enough food to sample and the drinks were refreshing. Then the egg tart..... Well it was the best thing that I have ever eaten!! This tour is a must do if you are visiting hong kong!

My family and I encourage anyone to take this tour. Cliff, our guide, was knowledgeable and entertaining. The places we stopped were all places that we would not have ventured into ourselves. The food was great love those flaky pork buns!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This is a great tour and shouldn't be missed when in Hong Kong. Great small group, excellent guide who knew his stuff. Food was great, the last stop for Egg Tarts made us trek back there a few days later to buy more. Would do this again for sure.

I loved this tour. Silvana, our guide, was exceptionally knowledgeable about Hong Kong Island and we got a tour of Central and Sheung Wan districts in addition to a very carefully chosen Food Tour. It was great to try Hong Kong speciality dishes and to have Hong Kong food culture explained to us along the way. Excellent value and I recommend it.
