What You Can Expect

Hong Kong Food Tour: Sham Shui Po District

Hong Kong Food Tour: Sham Shui Po District

In the morning, meet your guide and small group at Sham Shui Po MTR Station, located in one of Hong Kong's most intriguing neighborhoods. This old Kowloon district offers an abundance of popular spots for any foodie interested in trying out Hong Kong's beloved cuisine. Follow your guide on foot down a food trail off the beaten path to six tasting locations – local eateries and specialty shops – for a taste of both sweet and savory classics. (Please note: All food venues are subject to change.)

Start your walking tour with a stop at Hong Kong Style Café (Cha Chang Teng) for a typical Hong Kong breakfast. Then, head to a soy specialty store and sip some of the freshest soymilk as you learn about the three different soy products sold at the shop. Afterward, follow your guide to a Chinese pudding store for a taste of delicious sweet pudding made the traditional way at this sixty-year-old establishment.

Next, see how the Braised Goose Restaurant’s owner and chef adapts traditional Chiu Chow fare for Hong Kong tastes at this hidden gem. After a savory sampling, your palette will be ready for two types of freshly baked cookies at a legendary Kowloon bakery. Finally, your guide will take you to Oodles of Noodles Restaurant, an award-winning family-run restaurant that serves fresh noodles made by hand daily. Savor egg noodles smothered with a special topping -- it's like nothing you’ve ever tasted before!

Between tastings, learn about Kowloon’s culture and history while your knowledgeable and entertaining guide points out iconic landmarks. As you stroll through Sham Shui Po, watch the neighborhood come to life and discover how it has changed over the past few decades. You’ll discover cultural remnants of Hong Kong’s past and experience modern life in this vibrant working-class community that escaped much recent urban redevelopment.

By the time you’ve eaten enough food for brunch, you’ll feel like a local with new knowledge of Hong Kong’s culinary culture! 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 nearest MTR station.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

We had a fabulous time on this tour, tasting food that we had never tried, or in some cases, seen before. Our guide was excellent, ensuring that we arrived at certain places just as they were opening or bringing out a new batch, ensuring that we experienced the tastings at their freshest. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
