WHAMPOA, A NEIGHBOURHOOD YOU’VE NEVER EVEN HEARD OF…

Welcome to Virginia’s, our founder, hood (neighbourhood) & this is our SIGNATURE & best seller tour.

In this quaint & hidden gem 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 –  & each food stop will be focused on one particular flavour. There are no intestines or innards in this tour, unless you want there to be.

WANT TO EAT LIKE A LOCAL? THIS IS THE TOUR.

Amongst other things, we’ll be visiting a public housing estate, meet the last female Mahjong carver of Hong Kong as seen on Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown & explore other cultural aspects of Hong Kong. This is a true glimpse of local living – none of that touristy fluff.

This Hong Kong walking food tour is ideal for those looking to discover culinary delights not found in guide books & is our most culturally local immersive food tour. This is the intermediate food tour to the Hong Kong Must-Eats Food Tour, our introductory food tour to Hong Kong cuisine.

FOOD TASTINGS & TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

6 different food stops. 18 different local eats. True and tried local joints.

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.
