Street food in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is renowned for its cuisine and the city’s melting pot of cultures guarantees that expats will find dining options from every part of the world.
That said, every expat should take the opportunity to try at least some of the local specialities and sample everything from the Beijing noodles to Cantonese pigeon. It will take quite a while to go through all the Chinese cuisines available, let alone the international cuisines in town.
There are thousands of eateries packed into the region, with everything from molecular gastronomy (a fusion of chemistry and cooking) to Egyptian, French, Italian, American, Cantonese and Korean cuisine. Whether a vegan, a Muslim or a devout foodie, every kind of expat will be spoilt for choice, and every kind of budget can be accommodated.
