I have joined several Eating Adventures tours around China and Hong Kong, including Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong. They offer 3 tours in Hong Kong: Central, Mong Kok and Sham Shui Po. Last time I did the Mong Kok tour with my mother and this time I did the Sham Shui Po tour with my dear friend. I keep going back time and time again because I really love how they operate!
My friend Jessica was visiting from America, I was playing tour guide, showing her around Hong Kong and decided a great way to introduce her to the local culture would be with a food tour. Last time, I took my mom and she loved it, so I figured it was a recipe for success! It was.
We started the day off with a very notable bowl of cart noodles. I haven’t had something that made my head spin so much in a while. These noodles were orgasmic. I didn’t want to stop eating, even though I knew I shouldn’t get full this early in the tour. What a dilemma! I ate my favorite bits of this glorious bowl of noodles, and left the remaining, sadly.
We then began a short walk around a market and tried several smaller items along the way. As we wound through the streets, we learned about Sham Shui Po’s rich cultural history. Another very notable item we stopped for was an amazing garlic and chili duck. As we waited, the suspense was building! This was another explosion of very delightful flavor. Just the right amount of spiciness, insuring most will enjoy it, even the faint of heart.
I recognized one of the next stops from the Shanghai food tour, Sheng Jian Bao. These are soup-filled pan-fried dumplings. These offered a bit of a twist because one had truffle inside!
To finish off our three hour-long tour, we went to a local dim sum restaurant. This was Jessica’s first introduction to dim sum! She was especially excited about how they clean the utensils before the meal in tea. We went for a few common items to give her a proper introduction. I created a new dim sum fan!
Sadly, the tour was coming to a close. Eating Adventures tours goes way deeper than simply discussing food. The guides are very knowledgeable about the area they guide you through, teaching you about local culture and history as well as the cuisine. I will continue to support this amazing tour company because they are consistent at what they offer. The Sham Shui Po tour in Hong Kong helped introduce us to a lot, in a very short time. I highly-recommend you to go on an Eating Adventures tour as soon as possible!
