It’s not difficult to see why Hong Kong is a food-lover’s paradise: local food is incredibly affordable and accessible, and dining at acha chaan teng (a simple HK-style restaurant) ordai pai dong (an outdoor food stall) offers an authentic experience. Whether you’re visiting Hong Kong for a few days or have lived there for years, here are the top 10 foods everyone needs to try.
Whether you’re looking for a snack or a full meal,wonton soup is a great go-to. These fresh dumplings are filled with ground pork, shrimp and green onion, served in a clear soup with bouncy noodles.
Typically eaten for breakfast,dim sum consists of a range of dumplings served in bamboo baskets. For a truly local experience, head to one that serves its dim sum from a cart instead of a menu – just be quick, as the crowd favorites get snapped up fast. Some of our favourites includeSiu Mai (open-topped dumplings filled with ground pork and shrimp),Lo Mai Kai (chicken and mushroom steamed in glutinous rice), and the very essentialChar Siu Bao (steamed BBQ pork bun)!
Don’t be fooled by the name: these pineapple buns ironically have nothing to do with pineapples. The name comes from their crispy and crumbly pineapple-like top. Though you can find these sweet buns in most local bakeries, order one at acha chaan teng where you’ll be served a warm, fresh bun with a slab of butter in between.
