BEST OF HONG KONG FOOD TOUR IN SHAM SHUI PO
FOOD AND CULTURE WALKING TOUR
EXPLORE SHAM SHUI PO, HONG KONG’S LOCAL FOOD HAVEN
This is our Introductory Hong Kong 101 Crash Course to the most classic, and quintessentially Hong Kong foods that you must-try before leaving Hong Kong, all in 3.5 hours. It’s a well known secret amongst us locals that Sham Shui Po is a food haven, (also the poorest district in Hong Kong) and now we’re letting you in on the secret. Shhhhh.
Highlights include a meander through a busy wet market, a Chinese Herbalist visit, and a demonstration of how wonton noodles get made with a bamboo pole. Of course, the food will be epic: HK style BBQ meats, wonton noodles, milk tea & dessert, egg waffles, and Michelin starred dimsum.
This walking food tour is ideal for travellers with little to no exposure to Hong Kong foods. We handpick our local mom & pop shops, build rapport with them so you don’t have to waste time & calories eating touristy bad food. Next level up is The Off-the-Eaten-Path Street Food in Whampoa food tour (intermediate level), and you won’t find any of the foods in your guide books.
* Please see our Fishballs’ Food Adventurous Scale to see why this tour has been rated a 1.5.

TOP RATED FOOD TOUR IN HONG KONG
This tour was so much fun. Our guide took us to local places that we would not have tried or known about. The tour was a great mix of food and cultural information and Whampoa was a lovely neighbourhood to do this in! Our guide was a fantastic guide, was very helpful, chatty and answered all of our additional questions. She’s a hit with the locals as well – I loved to see her bantering with them all.
Would definitely recommend this tour, get yourself to Whampoa with Humid with a Chance of Fishballs!
WARNING: GLUTTONY AHEAD. FOOD BABY GUARANTEED. PROCEED WITH HUNGER.
