Ready to eat like a local? With that, we will whisk you away from the main tourist hot spots (ahem, Mong Kok) and take you to a neighbourhood that no tourist has gone before for an off-the-beaten path experience. Basically, we’re going to places you can’t find on Google.

In this quaint, charming and grassroots residential part of town where old Hong Kong occupations and shops are still in existence, you’ll be able to explore a neighbourhood full of local flair and authenticity. We’ll be deconstructing Cantonese cuisine into its 5 main flavours – bitter, salty, spicy, sour and sweet – and in turn, each food tasting stop will be focused on one particular flavour. Don’t worry, we start with bitter and end with sweet =)

This Hong Kong walking food tour is ideal for those that already have had exposure to Cantonese food and are looking to discover foods that are outside of their tour guide books. This is the intermediate/elevated food tour to the Hong Kong Must-Eats Food Tour, which is our introductory food tour to Hong Kong foods. The Off-the-Eaten-Path Street Food and Authentic Eateries’ objective is to provide you with a more in-depth understanding into the different flavours of Hong Kong cuisine and to feast on the more common day-to-day foods that locals love to eat. If you’re looking to eat like a local, this is the tour.

* Please see our Fishballs’ Food Adventurous Scale to see why this tour has been rated a 3-4.

FOOD TASTINGS & TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

EAT LIKE A LOCAL

We will go to 6 different tasting locations and sample over 10 different local eats. The locations are varied from hole-in-the-walls, to street vendors, to seat-down restaurants for a true local experience. The food tour eats like a progressive meal starting with an “amuse bouche” to desserts at the end, tasting the spectrum of Cantonese flavours from bitter to sweet with spicy, sour, & salty in between. Please eat very light before this gluttonous food tour.

PLEASE NOTE: Tastings may change without prior notice due to availability.
