I’m so happy to eat every single day in Hong Kong. I know your are too.
Dim Sum, I knew that. But I didn’t think Hong Kong as a culinary getaway destination. How wrong I was. During about a month I traveled Hong Kong, I tasted different cuisine every day, found new places, and stumbled upon random food stalls. The price was reasonable, compared to the level of living expenses. Food is the cheapest thing here! I was a little bit intimidated by the food price at first, but I found lots of options and broad choices within the reasonable range of price. From HKD11 to HKD120, from street food to the cooked food centers, there are (almost) unlimited options if you look. But I usually sat down at an alleyway for a bowl of beef noodle, or wanton noodle for HKD16 with a cup of milk tea.
Here, photos of food I had in Hong Kong. I’m sorry in advance, to make you hungry. Enjoy!

That’s a lot of food for back packing traveler, which is super awesome! Do you eat with fellow back packers when you are traveling? Sometimes certain dishes like hot pot need a small group of people to make the dining experience even better!
I especially love the dim sum in Hong Kong. Its kind of weird to me that its more of a casual affair in China. Whereas, in the US, dim sum is for the most part, a proper meal (not a snack). Would love to go to Hong Kond just to eat. And your post is reason enough to go back.
Incredible pictures! I spent 2 weeks eating my way around Hong Kong & wish I’d taken more foodie shots. Once my meal is in front of me, I forget as too eager to it eat it! Did you get to Macau as well? I definitely preferred Portuguese egg tarts over Hong Kong egg tarts but ate my body weight in both nonetheless!
I also loved Hong Kong for the food. With my two weeks there, I still had a feeling I hadn’t tried out everything. And now all those photos definitely made me hungry for some HK food.
What, no photos from the Lin Heung Tea House? 🙂
haha yeah, food is great in Hong Kong. Hey and you know what? I lost all the photos from my first week in Hong Kong. :S It’s a heart breaking memory! I don’t know what happened, but it was there, and gone. :S So, yeah, no photos from Lin Heung Tea House!! Pity!
Those photos of food are making me hungry lol
I don’t usually think of Hong Kong as a foodie destination but this post changed my mind! It looks like you got to sample every type of dish. Personally those coconut tarts look mighty tasty 🙂
Well, you definitely got me back for posting about the cheap food here in Ecuador. I would KILL for some good gyoza. NOMNOMNOM
What a feast! I’m a huge fan of dim sum 🙂
Such creative, fresh, and delicious-looking food!
I agree with you Stephanie! Hong Kong people certainly know how to enjoy food!!
These foods make it more difficult for me to maintain my diet right now. They just look so delicious!
Certainly. It’s not a good place to be on a diet. 🙂
