Choose Hello Hong Kong Walking Food Tours
One of the great things we love to do when traveling to new destinations around the Globe, is to join a Walking Food Tour. On my recent visit to Hong Kong, I had the pleasure of joining Hello Hong Kong Food Tours on their very popular Public Group Food Tour.
This tour is centered on Hong Kong Island, beginning in the old neighborhood of Sheung Wan and continuing on and finishing in Wan Chai district.
Hello Hong Kong Food Tours – Small Group or Private
There are a variety of tours to select from with Hello Hong Kong Tours. Choose from a variety of full mixed group and private city and food tours. I’m sure there’s a perfect tour to suit your interests and time that you have available when visiting the city.
My tour included a small group of individuals from all parts of the world, making it also a great way to meet other like minded people when traveling. Below, is a glimpse of what I enjoyed on my full 3 ½ hour tour, and what you can look forward to when booking with Hong Kong Food Tours.
Do not eat before coming on this tour! This is a Food Tasting Tour and you will have more to eat than you can handle, even on an empty stomach. 🙂
Hello Hong Kong Food Tours – Public Group Food Tour
We started our tour in the very busy and vibrant neighborhood of Sheung Wan. Known for shopping and side streets filled with traditional dry seafood and herbal medicine shops. Our tour started at 09:30 am and I was awake early in the morning, didn’t have a bite to eat as recommended, so I was all set to start food sampling!
Our first stop of the morning was to a very well known Dim Sum restaurant in business for over 85 years. The restaurant was packed upon our arrival. This is a great indication the food must be excellent and it certainly was!
Our friendly and very informative guide (Nicole), ordered some restaurant favorites for us to sample.
Her selections were outstanding! I’ve had Dim Sum many times in western Canada where I live, but this was exceptional! There was plenty to eat for everyone and what a great start to the tour.
Traditional Dry Seafood and Medicine Shops
After enjoying a number of excellent Dim Sum samples, it was time to take a stroll to our next location, with a few interesting stops along the way. This part of the city is well known for its traditional dry seafood and herbal medicine shops.
Nicole filled our group in on the history of these shops and the many health benefits associated with the vast variety of interesting and unique items for sale. Can you guess what I’m holding? 🙂
Wonton Noodle Shop
This is one shop I was eager to try, as I have enjoyed eating Wonton Noodle Soup in Vancouver British Columbia’s Chinatown for over 35 years! I was anxious to compare the soup to that in which I have enjoyed for so long.
This was another small but very popular Wonton Noodle restaurant that’s been around since the 1960’s. The soup was superb and as good or if not better than what our kitchen chefs serve in Vancouver.
I could live on this soup! 🙂
Hello Hong Kong Food Tours – Street Markets
It was then on to our next stop, and along the way, Nicole led us through one of the many popular street markets. This is where locals shop for their fresh vegetables, fish and so much more. A buzz of activity and certainly something not to be missed when visiting Hong Kong.
While strolling in the marketplace, Nicole has us sample a British tradition dating back many years here in the city. A nice refreshing iced tea with milk drink, or more commonly referred to as ‘Milk Tea’ It definitely hit the spot on this very hot and humid day, or least I thought it was!
Hello Hong Kong Food Tours – Wan Chai
Next, it was time for a ride on Hong Kong’s traditional Street Rail Tram or more commonly referred to as the ‘Ding Ding Tram’ by locals, taking us for a relaxing ride to the district of Wan Chai.
After exiting the Tram, it was on to a favorite bakery in the area that serves one of the more popular treats among locals, the mouth watering Egg Tart. Our tarts were oven fresh and still warm. It’s hard to eat just one of these old British favorites!
Our last stop and with bellies bursting, we make our way to yet another ever so popular restaurant to sample their delicious specialty, roasted meats.
Served with rice and vegetable, this was a great way to end our tour and thank goodness, as we were all stuffed at this point!
This was an outstanding walking food tour that takes place on Hong Kong Island and for Foodie lovers, a tour that should not be missed. Our guide was very professional and knowledgeable, who made sure at all times, we were all well fed and taken care of.
What a great way to sample the local dishes and receive an in-depth history lesson at the same time. I highly recommend taking a Hello Hong Kong Food Tour when visiting the city, you definitely will be glad you did!
