Begin your guided tour by meeting in the Sheung Wan district of Hong Kong Island, and make your way to an old tea house for your first dish, a breakfast of yum cha (dim sum) served by trolley. Let your senses absorb while taking in the restaurant’s atmosphere—lively and crowded with a history that dates back almost 100 years.
Then head to a family-run business from the 1960s, recommended by the Michelin Guide, for wonton noodles, a Hong Kong specialty that, while simple, can only be perfected by a local master.
Continue your tour with a cup of milk tea, one of the most pervasive pieces of the city’s food culture that remains from the days of British rule.
Next, take a ride on the Ding Ding (the Hong Kong tramway; own expense) to another family-run restaurant, which dates back to the Qing dynasty (pre-20th century) and is renowned for its English char siu (roast meat). Taste a mixture of traditional roasted meats served with rice and homemade sauces before ending your foodie adventure with a dan tat (egg tart), another Chinese take on an English dish, the custard tart.
Take pleasure in the 60-year history of this local bakery, a favorite of one former Hong Kong governor.
Throughout the tour, hear about Hong Kong’s food history, and make stops at a local tea shop to try preserved "candies," a family-run soy sauce producer, a dried seafood shop, a Chinese medicine shop from the 1940s, and the city’s oldest wet market.
