Sham Shui Po has become known as a foodie haven, where traditional restaurants and Dai Pai Dong are thriving. This is the poorest district in Hong Kong and it is nothing like the Hong Kong most people imagine. Streets are packed with markets and street traders. Decaying old apartment blocks are yet to give way to high rise development. The atmosphere is real, traditions still live strong and local life is everywhere.
In a district that is foreign even to many locals, let our experienced guides show you a different side to Hong Kong, and sample fantastic local delicacies along the way.
Cart Noodles: A local favourite, this modern version of traditional street noodle carts serves noodles with tender beef and pomelo skin (seasonal) in a delicious soup.
Tofu Puffs & Soy Milk: Soy Milk doesn't get any better than this. This simple eatery is more than 50 years old. The staff are old and grumpy, but you would be to if you had thousands of customers everyday.
Garlic and Chilli Duck: Thinly sliced succulent pieces of duck garnished with garlic and chilli.
Sour Plum Tea: This refreshing drink from a traditional herbal tea shop has a range of health benefits, a perfect palate cleanser before the next tasting.
Shanghai Pan Fried Dumplings (Sheng Jian Bao): These Sheng Jian Bao are delicious. Packed with a lot of soup, and just a bit sweet.
Glutinous Rice stuffed with peanuts: This humble family shop serves award winning snacks.
Dim Sum: This innovative restaurant has all your traditional favourites plus some more contemporary choices. Highly reviewed and simply delicious.
All tastings are subject to change and availability.
