What To Expect

Sheung Wan
Come and experience the elegant, exotic and hip, the old neighbourhood of Sheung Wan, it is an eclectic blend of shopping experiences dominated by traditional Chinese beliefs and businesses.

The first stop of the food tour will take you to an authentic decades-old dim sum teahouse, a recipient of Michelin Guide for many years until 2020. Don't let its modest interior fool you, the place is always packed with locals. Find yourself transported back to a bygone era as you sample authentic and tasty dumplings that are served out of the traditional dim sum trolley. You will not leave unsatisfied.

50 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Seafood Street
Dried seafood is a common ingredient in Chinese cooking and traditional tonics, and in Hong Kong, this trade is clustered around a section of Des Voeux Road West in Sheung Wan, commonly known as Dried Seafood Street. Come explore and learn about the medicinal properties of the dried seafood used in soups and visit a Chinese medicine shop originating from 1940s.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Kai Fat Tea
Tucked away in a narrow road in Sheung Wan area, Kai Fat Tea shop selling tea, assorted candies and other mouth-watering Chinese sweets made from fruits, has been around for more than 30 years. Kai Fat Tea means Tea Inspired House, might be small but it is one of the main tea suppliers to many restaurants and shops in Hong Kong and overseas. Have a taste of delicious candies and sweets offered by the shop on this tour.

Graham Street Market
With more than a century’s history, Graham Street Market is a great place to experience life as a local. The sloped street is flanked by food stalls on either side, selling everything from fresh vegetables to live seafood. Along the market, you’ll also find traditional shops selling items that make for great souvenirs. For example, founded in 1917, the Kowloon Soy Company on Graham Street is renowned for its soy sauce made with traditional techniques. Stopping here we learn about the King Of Sauces.

Hello Hong Kong: Private & Small Group Tours
Right on the cusp of what used to be the home of Hong Kong Island’s European and Chinese communities, Gough Street’s sleepy pace, colonial-style chic, hip boutiques and fashionable restaurants have baited a good mix of designer homewares stores, with funky retailers contributing to one of Hong Kong’s most eclectic neighbourhoods.

• Admission Ticket Free

Central
One of the oldest yet also most dynamic districts in the city, Central and Western District – encompassing the sloped streets and small alleys – encapsulates Hong Kong’s rich and diverse spirit. A place where century-old temples share the same streets as fashion-forward concept stores, or where authentic tea houses coexist with modern art galleries, this colourful neighbourhood is at once old and new while also being proudly local and unmistakably global.

Stop and satisfy your palate with one of Hong Kong's best Wonton Noodles at a family-run, recommended by Michelin Guide restaurant, that has been running for 3rd generation since World War II.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Mid-levels Escalator
Experience Mid-Levels Escalator, the longest outdoor escalator in the world. It is 800 meters in distance and elevates 135 meters up to the hilly areas that end in Conduit Road.

Located next to the escalator is a modest-looking but renowned milk tea place. The secret to the signature milk tea has been straining the brew through a pair of pantyhose for an extra smooth taste!

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Tai Kwun - Centre for Heritage and Arts
Tai Kwun presents a wide range of heritage, contemporary art, performing arts and lifestyle experiences in the restored and revitalised Central Police Station compound, which comprises three Declared Monuments, the former Central Police Station, the Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison. It is the recipient of the Award of Excellence in the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation 2019.

• Admission Ticket Free

Hong Kong Tramways (Ding Ding)
Board and enjoy the ride of Hong Kong's electric tram system. It is one of the oldest public transports in the city, first operated in 1904 under British rule and it owns the world's largest operational double-decker tram fleet. The system, being very affordable, is also one of the most environmentally friendly ways of travelling in the city. Learn about notable buildings that you pass by.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Wan Chai
Here our food tour stops at another family-run, Michelin Guide recommended restaurant, which dates back to the pre-20th century Qing Dynasty and is renowned for its Char Siu Fan (roast BBQ pork rice). It is a must-stop for everyone who claimed themselves as foodies. Try the Char Siu Fan, the pork is just the right amount of meat, fat and sauce, the contents of which they keep a closely guarded secret. This is the late Anthony Bourdain's favourite. You will leave with a smile and a happy belly.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Hong Kong Hennessy Road
Our last stop on the food tour is at a well-established bakery, a personal favorite of a former Hong Kong governor. Get your hands on some of the famous Egg Tart, or Dan Tat in Cantonese, a Chinese version of an English pastry — the custard tart.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Southorn Playground
Packed with spectators, sportsmen, and people who want to get away for a quick break from the office and have a bite to eat while watching the crowd goes by, the sports and recreational ground in Wan Chai is the perfect place to end the tour, accompanied with a bite of a nice and creamy egg tart from the bakery. A sweet ending indeed.

Wonderul Food Tour!
SLBRN, 21-01-2020
We had an excellent food tour with Jane! We went to multiple places and tried many types of food, including dim sum, spring rolls, buns, hot tea, won ton noodle soup, iced milk tea, roasted meat (pork) and an egg tart. Most of the places were Michelin-recommended and the food quality was excellent and plentiful! Jane also provided a great deal of interesting information related to Hong Kong and its people. Could not recommend enough!
Excellent Guide made the walking food trip a memorable one

Guide was knowledgeable, friendly and great. He was well prepared and ensured our food restrictions were taken care of while still ensuring we tried various things. He also was patient and willing to stop and entertain all our questions enroute
Best Food Tour ever
Reby2014, 09-01-2020
It was one of the most interesting Food Tours we have ever done. Mel was just amazing and he knows so much, not only about Food. 100% recommendable! Thanks a lot Mel.
Great exposure to Hong Kong
lizardrobot, 31-12-2019
My girlfriend and I have found that walking tours are a great way for us to get to know a destination, and we love to eat, so this tour with Jane was an excellent fit for us! Delicious dishes and interesting company. We were joined on our tour by a friend who was living in HK at the time, and she learned of some great places she hadn't heard of too! We loved it! Thank you, Jane!
Delicious Hong Kong

Agnes was fantastic - she'd planned the stops really well and gave us lots of fascinating information about the origins of the food and the wider Hong Kong food culture. As a solo traveller it gave me a great chance to try lots of different things. Highly recommended!
