KOWLOON CITY NIGHT FOOD TOUR
FOOD AND CULTURE WALKING TOUR
EXPLORE KOWLOON CITY, A LOCAL FOODIE HAVEN, WHERE THE KOWLOON ‘WALLED CITY’ ONCE STOOD
Ready to see local night life & entertainment? Over at Kowloon City, you’ll see streets and streets lined with hotpot places, Chiu Chow dessert shops, and an abundance of Thai restaurants. Those, believe or not, are places that locals love and have a long rooted place in the history of Kowloon City, also dubbed as Little Thailand in Hong Kong, and also once where the “densest Kowloon Wall City” stood.
In this neighbourhood, we’ll retell the history of Kowloon City & Hong Kong through the food from all the different ethnic communities in Hong Kong. We’ll be trying Thai salad, Hong Kong beef brisket, Chiu Chow noodles, Chinese Islamic beef sandwiches, and Indonesian skewers – all part of the Hong Kong culture. Come have a taste of history with us of Hong Kong’s past, present and future.
This Hong Kong walking food tour is ideal for those looking to see what Cantonese and Hong Kong cuisine offers, beyond the wonton noodles and BBQ pork buns. Our Sham Shui Po Best of Hong Kong Foods is a good prerequisite to this tour.

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!
FUN & KNOWLEDGEABLE ENGLISH SPEAKING GUIDES!
If you love food and you want to get off the well-worn tourist trails, then Humid with a Chance of Fishballs should be your first choice. My husband had his ‘villains hit’ by one of the infamous ‘cursing grannies’, before we boarded a tram and travelled to our Sampan boat for delicious shellfish, including the re-nowed ‘Typhoon Shelter Crab’. The next day our guide guided us to one of the oldest dim sum restaurants in town, taught us how to get a seat – no, really, you’ve never done this before, I promise you! – took us through the menu and made sure we sampled all the best dishes. No easy feat, I can assure you!
I can highly recommend Humid With a Chance of Fishballs!
UNIQUE & AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCES!
After a quick introduction we turned a few corners and found ourselves in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the back alleys of Hong Kong. Amidst a myriad of different food options she seems to be able to find the ones that offer that little bit extra.
Our guide seemed to have a genuinely great rapport with the hawkers and food stall owners we visited. If you’re looking for a genuine, authentic urban experience, we can definitely recommend going on this food tour. All we suggest is you bring an open mind and a healthy appetite; there’s going to be plenty of food and some of it will have you talking about it till late in the evening.
WARNING: GLUTTONY AHEAD. FOOD BABY GUARANTEED. PROCEED WITH HUNGER.
