10 best Hong Kong local food

10 best Hong Kong local food

Due to its geographic location, and wide exposure to different parts of the world, Hong Kong developed some uniqe food that is an assimilation of various food culture. The below food items (marked with **) are my top favourite 10 Hong Kong food, I strongly recommend you to try them all.

    • bakery – the most famous bakery includes egg tart**, pineapple bun**, cocktail bun, and paper cup cake**. Most bakery shops make good bakery, but don’t pick the bakery shop which sells pasteries that are too yellowish – too much colouring. The last Governer of Hong Kong, Christopher Patten, likes the egg tarts from Tai Cheong Bakery, so all of a sudden the shop became famous, with multiple branches and expensive. However, I found its bakery has too much artificial colouring and pricy, taste good though. Here are some good choices for Hong Kong style bakery –
      • Happy Bun Bakery, Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong. Exit C1 of MTR Admiralty station, walk east bound along Queensway, which continues to Queen’s Road East, Happy Bun bakery will be on your left. Ask if they have freshly baked pineapple buns, you just want to eat it when it is still burning hot!
      • New Blue Pool, Caine Road, Mid Levels, Hong Kong. Exit D1/D2 from MTR Central station, walk southwest bound, turn right on Queen’s Road Central, you will find a mid-level esculator in front of 100 Queen’s Road Central, take the esculator up, exit at Caine Road, walk west bound along Caine Road, New Blue Pool Bakery will be on your right.
      • Tai Cheong Bakery Tai Cheong Bakery, 32 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, Hong Kong. Exit D1/D2 from MTR Central station, walk southwest bound, turn right on Queen’s Road Central, you will find a mid-level esculator in front of 100 Queen’s Road Central, take the esculator up, exit at Lyndhurst Terrace, walk west bound along Lyndhurst Terrace, Tai Cheung Bakery will be on your right.


    • beverage – milk tea(**), red bean ice. They are served at every tea cafe. Milk tea has a well-known nickname, stocking milk tea, as tea cafes use a stocking-like bag to filter out tea leaves. Milk tea and red bean ice might be available in other types of eateries but cannot compete with those served at tea cafes.

egg puff

    • snack – egg roll**(plain, or with shredded meat and/or seasame inside), almond cookie**(plain or chunky style), chicken pie, curry puff, small egg puff**(492 King’s Road, North Point, Hong Kong).


    • breakfast – rice roll wrap donut**. Many Chinese-style breakfast stores sell this item, but the best ones are those with smooth warm rice roll and crispy donut, served with soya sauce, you have to eat it fast so the donut does not get soggy. Ocean Empire maintains this quality quite well, just ask for exchange if you are not satisfied with the quality, this dish at Ocean Empire is called ‘Twisted Doughnut Ricesheet Roll’. Wai Kee Congee Shop Another common breakfast item is turnip cake, the most famous turnip cake shop is Wai Kee Congee Shop (82 Stanley Street, Central, Hong Kong. Exit D2 of MTR Central Station, then walk westbound along Queen’s Road Central, right on Cochrane Street, right on Stanley Street, the shop is on your left), it is recommended by many local food critics. Also try rice roll and minced beef congee.


  • lunch, dinner –
    • fried noodle**(crispy style) – served at tea house at dinner time.
    • lobster in cheese sauce** – Chuk Yuen Seafood Restaurant makes extraordinarily tasty cheese sauce. Prince Edward Road West (near South Wall Road), Kowloon City, Kowloon. Cash only. To get there is a bit tricky as MTR does not have access to it.
      • Take bus route 101 or 111 ( from Hong Kong Island) outside Vicwood Plaza, 199 Des Voeux Road Central, Sheung Wan, (from Kowloon) at Tsim Sha Tsui East / Hung Hom Station, get off at the station of Argyle Street Playground, Ma Tau Chung Road.
      • An easier way is to take a taxi from MTR Mong Kok station.
