Dinner Time

31460005

Hong Kong has a healthy appetite, one could say, for any form and type and flavor of food. Several streets are dedicated to the shark fin trade, representing a global trading hub, fresh markets abound in every district, and Hong Kong has the most Michelin-starred restaurants of any city.

Characteristic of Hong Kong are small “mom-and-pop” shops, “holes-in-the-wall”, serving up a vast plentitude of dishes, ranging from traditional Juk (also known as congee) and barbecue stalls to dim sum delicatessens (which, as Tim Ho Wan proves, can also receive Michelin stars), Pad Thai pads and sushi serveries. Food, if not always on their mind, is at least always but a short walk to a neighborhood eatery, a call to a late-night delivery service away.
