When it comes to Chinese food most of us are familiar with American style favorites like sweet and sour pork. But when we’re talking about Hong Kong Chinese food, it’s a different story.
Food in Hong Kong is heavily influenced by Cantonese cuisine, which is the most widely known style of Chinese food and mostly what we are familiar with in the United States. However, Hong Kong Chinese food is also influenced by other regions as wells as Western culture, Japanese and other Asian cuisines. It’s a true “melting pot” that reflects Hong Kong’s history and residents.
Hong Kong is passionate about food. The residents dine out a great deal, either in restaurants or from popular street vendors, called hawkers. Tiny walk-up stalls and mobile hawkers sell a vast array of food from noodles, roasted meats, dim sum, sweets and everything in between.
Some of the favorites in the Hong Kong Chinese food repertoire include beef brisket noodles, claypot rice, egg tarts, milk tea, hot pot soup, Indonesian satay, roast pork, chicken feet, pineapple bun, and many varieties of dumplings.
