Central Food Crawl

Intro to hong kong traditional food culture

This tour is perfect for first-timers in Hong Kong or those who wish to discover another side of the city like a local. You'll get to see and eat things at some of the most real and authentic places in town, guided by Ashley who's born and raised in Hong Kong. The spots we have carefully chosen are places you'll either feel too overwhelmed to venture in alone and you'll most likely miss them as you walk them by. 

The Fun & Delicious Stuff

  • Serious noodles slurping at a hole-in-the-wall wonton noodles restaurant

    • We’ll try some beef brisket noodles, spicy and sweet pork noodles and some steamed Chinese veggies with oyster sauce!

  • Tasting at a traditional local snack shop that makes liquorice lemon, lemon ginger, aged manadrin peel, preserved plum and much more!

  • Learn how locals shop for Chinese produce and exotic ingredients at an outdoor street market

  • Enjoy a dim sum breakfast at a traditional teahouse that's been opened since the 1920s, with dim sum ladies pushing their carts around!

    • We call it the "busiest dim sum tea house" in the world. It's chaotic, just like a war zone, and we'll teach you how to fight for your dim sum like a warrior.

  • Learn about the culture and Chinese customs at a historic Chinese temple

    • How do you pray to the God? Why are fruits and Chinese roasted meat all laid out in front of the statues of the Chinese Gods? We'll tell you all at this temple.

  • One last bite and savour Chinese fusion dessert. We spy Hong Kong egg waffles with creative choice of toppings in a parfait cup!

  • Wrap up the tour with us with a Chinese tea tasting at my private tea room, 1968, inspired by Wong Kar-Wai’s In The Mood For Love.

Spotted at the local market: Chinese preserved sausages (not to be mixed up with the French salami....) and an abundance of dried seafood and mushroom.
