Before we even set foot in the city, I was dreaming about the delicious things to eat in Hong Kong. I fantasized about platters of steamed dumplings and bowls of steaming noodles. My thoughts ran wild over the onslaught of wontons I was certain to consume. Our 3-day Hong Kong itinerary was packed with iconic sightseeing and dazzling viewpoints, but I would be lying if I didn’t admit that I was most excited about the food in Hong Kong.
During our time in the city, we feasted – no doubt ingesting heaps more calories than daily recommended. Although laden with carbohydrates and sodium (and probably a good dose of MSG, too), the Hong Kong dishes we consumed delivered on deliciousness. From street food stalls to Michelin-rated restaurants, we sampled as much of the Hong Kong cuisine as possible – and never paid more than $7 USD for a dish. With a desire to get a good taste of Hong Kong, we often relied on staff’s suggestions and ordered two to four different menu items at each restaurant. Truly, nothing disappointed – and a few Hong Kong eats exceeded our expectations.
