Hong Kong Foodie has become the first tour company in Hong Kong to offer licensed food tours around the city. Starting in May, the tour will take food enthusiasts on a tour of the city stopping off at some of Hong Kong’s best places to eat.
The first tour will start on the 10th May 2013 and will take tourists on a journey through the Kowloon neighbourhood of Hong Kong while educated them about the history of food in the city. People taking part in the tour will have the chance to sample some of the local dishes popular with the people of Hong Kong, that would not usually be seen in some of the bigger “tourist friendly” restaurants.
“Sham Shui Po is a fascinating neighborhood in Kowloon which offers delectable food,” said Cecilia Leung, founder and director of Hong Kong Foodie. “Known to many Hong Kong locals as a foodie enclave, Sham Shui Po houses a plethora of eateries serving some of our city’s favourite treats.”
“We selected Sham Shui Po as the destination of our new tour not just for the food it serves but also for the cultural value it offers. Having escaped much of urban redevelopment in recent years, Sham Shui Po has retained much of its history, tradition and charm. We will venture beyond the typical tourist route to eat and see this old Kowloon neighbourhood like a local,” she added.
The Hong Kong Foodie tour will run from breakfast until lunchtime and will take tourists to six different eateries in the area. All the restaurants are run by local families who will serve up the most authentic and traditional meals available in the area.
