More about our Hong Kong Street Food

  • CHA CHAAN TENG

    That's our way of saying ``Comfort Food`` in Hong Kong. Popular since the 1960s, these little coffee-tea diners serve up Hong Kong style dishes using Western ingredients like peanut butter, hot dogs and scrambled eggs. You'll say Yum!

  • Street Side Dim Sum

    We call this meal ``Yum Cha``, and we eat these wonderous small bites for breakfast or lunch, and everywhere. We'll Yum Cha like a local from bamboo steamers at a streetside cafe

  • Sweet Treats

    Hong Kong's sweet buns like the ``bo lo baau`` and savory stuffed rolls keep us going during our long fast-paced days. We'll sample Hong Kong's most famous street waffle, hot from the griddle!

The Basics:

When: Any Afternoon you Choose

Our MINI Food Tour starts at 2 or 2:30pm. Because it's private, it's flexible too.

Why is Shau Kei Wan the home of Hong Kong’s Best Street Food?

Shau Kei Wan is the kind of special 'secret' place that you can't believe still exists in Hong Kong. Here you'll find a half dozen old Chinese temples, banners fluttering in the breeze--along with a main street chockablock with great Hong Kong street food restaurants and stalls.

Tucked away at the far eastern end of Hong Kong island, Shau Kei Wan existed as a fishing village long before there was a Hong Kong. Because of its distance from the center of the city, Shau Kei Wan remained a working class area with lower rents than other areas of Hong Kong. It’s remained a thriving center for street food and great old-fashioned Hong Kong snack and coffee shop culture. Thankfully, it has not made the tourist map yet, and this is where Hong Kong people flock on the weekends to enjoy the comfort foods they remember from 20 and 30 years ago.

 

Shau Kei Wan’s amazing outdoor wet market takes up an entire outdoor city block, and is absolutely our favorite market in Hong Kong. In between eating stops, we will take advantage of the variety and spaciousness of this local treasure to introduce you to the key ingredients and guiding philosophy behind our Hong Kong Cantonese cuisine. You’ll learn about the “four treasures” of Cantonese dried seafood, get an introduction to the Cantonese flavor profile of super fresh foods combined with preserved, fermented and pickled ingredients (the “flavor bombs” of our cooking). You’ll also see how our local Hong Kong produce is becoming popular with consumers at the street level, and learn why.
