Welcome to Kowloon, Hong Kong. This district of Hong Kong is an assault on the senses (in a good way). The smell of fried tofu wafts around the corner, a riot of colourful exotic fruit at the market tempts you, and the hubbub of the crowd going about their business continues all around. This is the place to go to get to know the old side of Hong Kong. You come here to find the city’s most incredible street food, so of course, that is where we wanted our food tour to be.

Of course, you know we found you a really special guide. Lulu is a gem, a Hong Kong native with a love of food.

And luckily she is very patient as we discovered when we spent hours and hours wandering around with her dipping in and out of alleys and eateries to find the best food.

After many, many iterations, we worked out an epic tour, taking in the best of Hong Kong’s amazing street food. The tour takes you on a whirlwind of culinary delights, sampling the best of lunch, afternoon tea (a HK tradition) and dinner in just over 4 hours. Along the way, you will pass through a traditional seafood market, and a fruit market crammed with fresh and beautiful fruits. You will have the chance to try dishes ranging from Hong Kong classics such as the pineapple bun right through to a durian glutenous rice ball for the adventurous eaters amongst you (or a delicious mango version for those not so keen on the notorious durian fruit – don’t worry, I am with you on that one!). One thing is for sure, you won’t leave this tour hungry, as we hit over 10 eateries, and sample more than 15 different foods, drinks and snacks.

As a special introductory offer, we are please to offer anyone who books on our new Hong Kong tour in the first month a massive 20% discount with the code #HONGKONGHEREWEGO. There's a link to the tour below.
