    Sham Shui Po
    Stop: 4 hours -
    In the morning, meet your guide and small group at Sham Shui Po MTR Station, located in one of Hong Kong's most intriguing neighborhoods. This old Kowloon district offers an abundance of popular spots for any foodie interested in trying out Hong Kong's beloved cuisine. Follow your guide on foot down a food trail off the beaten path to six tasting locations – local eateries and specialty shops – for a taste of both sweet and savory classics. (Please note: All food venues are subject to change.) Start your walking tour with a stop at Hong Kong Style Café (Cha Chang Teng) for a typical Hong Kong breakfast. Then, head to a soy specialty store and sip some of the freshest soymilk as you learn about the three different soy products sold at the shop. Afterward, follow your guide to a Chinese pudding store for a taste of delicious sweet pudding made the traditional way at this sixty-year-old establishment. Next, see how the Braised Goose Restaurant’s owner and chef adapts traditional Chiu Chow fare for Hong Kong tastes at this hidden gem. After a savory sampling, your palette will be ready for two types of freshly baked cookies at a legendary Kowloon bakery. Finally, your guide will take you to Oodles of Noodles Restaurant, an award-winning family-run restaurant that serves fresh noodles made by hand daily. Savor egg noodles smothered with a special topping -- it's like nothing you’ve ever tasted before! Between tastings, learn about Kowloon’s culture and history while your knowledgeable and entertaining guide points out iconic landmarks. As you stroll through Sham Shui Po, watch the neighborhood come to life and discover how it has changed over the past few decades. You’ll discover cultural remnants of Hong Kong’s past and experience modern life in this vibrant working-class community that escaped much recent urban redevelopment. By the time you’ve eaten enough food for brunch, you’ll feel like a local with new knowledge of Hong Kong’s culinary culture! At the end of your tour, your guide will help you with directions to get back to the starting location or point you to the nearest MTR station.

Our guide Carrie met us at the entrance to a subway in the Sham Shui Po area and took us on a very interesting and quite delicious food tour. She knows the area well and obviously enjoys sharing her knowledge. We had straight from the oven pineapple bun (it melts in your mouth),

Loved this tour! We had some free time in Hong Kong after our China tour ended and we wanted a guide to the local eats. This tour was an excellent choice! We had such a wide range of foods to sample, never too much to fill us before it ended. We were also guided through markets

Had so much fun exploring a new area with Carrie. She made us feel right at home in her home District. Don’t know if I’ve ever had a guide so knowledgeable about food, culture, and daily life. I would take this tour again and will visit the places she showed us.
