After making your own way to Yau Ma Tei MTR to meet your guide, set off into the busy Kowloon evening. Your first destination is an open-air fruit and produce market where your guide points out the raw ingredients that are commonly used in local cuisine.
Next, dive into the city’s no-nonsense culinary scene as your guide takes you to favorite spots in this working-class area. Eat and drink as the locals do: in modest family-run eateries and busy food courts that serve up sublime dishes. Sit near other patrons in close quarters and learn how to order in Cantonese for an authentic Kowloon dining experience.
Throughout your 3-hour tour, your guide shares informative commentary about food in Hong Kong, a city that has one of the earth’s highest concentrations of cafés and restaurants per capita. Take in numerous small restaurants near the Temple Street Night Market. Taste favorite main courses, snacks and desserts, some sweet and others savory.
After the food and drinks, you have the option to take an after-dinner stroll in tranquil Kowloon Park, an urban oasis for the densely populated peninsula. Your guide points out local dive bars and glamorous rooftop lounges with views of Victoria Harbour. Visit on your own if you like after your tour ends at the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR Station.
It’s up to you how much to eat and whether you feel adventurous or prefer to stay more on the safe side. If you have any food allergies or aversions, your guide can help you select suitable dishes. This tour does not include food costs; instead it offers a less expensive tour with flexibility as to what to purchase and eat, without spending money on a set menu that may not appeal to you.
