Hong Kong: Food and Drink

The Pearl of the Orient

Hong Kong offers an unbeatable selection of restaurants and dining experiences, which is no surprise as Hong Kong is considered the melting pot where China meets the Western World. There are more eateries than can be counted and are of a contrast of local Cantonese and Szechuan shops serving duck, offal, and snake to high-end award winning restaurants. There are wonderful small restaurants in Kowloon that serve traditional Chinese dishes such as Dim Sum for reasonable prices. Seafood restaurants are also very popular. Seafood is served fresh and is often alive for you to choose from. Head to the coast in the New Territories, Hong Kong Island or any number of the outlying Islands for the best sea dishes. Good pubs are abundant and tea time is an institution in Hong Kong; try the Peninsula for a traditional and posh afternoon tea.
