Hong Kong Foodie: Central & Sheung Wan Foodie Tour – Hong Kong, China

Taste your way through the old neighborhoods of Central and Sheung Wan. Along the 3.5-hour food tour, discover some of Hong Kong’s favorite food as you stroll along Hong Kong’s side streets and learn about how this area evolved from a fishing village to the colonial administration district to today’s international financial center. There will be six tasting locations and all food will be included in the ticket price of HK$600.

Savor the Food — Our journey will take us to six family-run tasting locations in the Central and Sheung Wan neighborhoods.  Each eatery has been specially selected not only to represent the best examples of Hong Kong cuisine but also for the unique and interesting stories behind them.  Samples of Hong Kong food and drinks are included in the ticket price.  We recommend that you eat a hearty breakfast or a light, early lunch before the food tour.  If you have any dietary preferences or restrictions, please indicate when you purchase your tickets.  Here’s a preview of what you’ll experience at our tasting locations:

Wonton Noodle Shop:  Mouth-watering wontons with fresh shrimp and noodles, served in soup prepared for hours from a family recipe will be the highlight of our first stop.  You will learn about what makes the wonton and the soup so special.

Roast Meat Restaurant:  Taste some succulent barbecued pork rice and find out how the owner can roast such juicy meat.

Fresh Juice:  Feeling a little tired? Sample some refreshing juice before continuing on our walk. Discover how the elements of this juice help balance the other tastings on the tour. We will share with you all the steps it takes to make this fresh juice. You might even catch a glimpse of the juicing process as well.

Tea House:  To help digestion, we will try a selection of “cha” (tea) at a private tea house set in a Chinese courtyard.  Learn about the different types of teas and how to prepare and serve them in the proper way practiced over centuries.

Dim Sum Corner:  Look for Hong Kong people’s favorites at this unique neighborhood dim sum house.  Savor a selection of dim sum, both steamed and fried, and check out others you could try when you return.

Local Bakery:  For dessert, taste one of the tarts hot out of the oven at this local bakery. They also serve a large variety of traditional Hong Kong baked goods.

Experience History, Architecture & Culture — Along our food tour, your local Foodie guide will share stories behind Hong Kong’s development, introduce you to important historical figures, and lead you to beautiful colonial architecture that still remains.  We will also tell you fun facts about Central & Sheung Wan and help you uncover an interesting, little shop hidden in the neighborhood that even most locals miss.  As we meander from one tasting location to another, we will also walk through an open market, watch how locals buy fresh fish and if you’re lucky, you might be able to take a peek of a cage of snakes in front of a shop selling snake soup and wine.

Who should take this Foodie Tour?

Our food tour is perfect for those who do not know what to try at a local restaurant but want to taste some of the best Hong Kong food.  Even if you know what to order, we will take you to some unique gems in Hong Kong that even many locals do not know about.  In addition, if you are curious about how some of these restaurants evolved and remained popular among locals for the last 60 years, our Foodie guides will show you a different side of this commercial area away from the busy shopping malls and typical sightseeing spots.

Miami Culinary Tours – Little Havana Food Tour

Get to know Miami beyond South Beach and venture to off-the-beaten-path places for curious eaters. This Food Tour is all about experiencing Traditional (Rustic) Cuban Cuisine.

  • Visit family-owned restaurants, and get the story behind the foods.
  • Our specialty is smaller, non-touristy, more remotely located hole-in-the-wall-type places.
  • Stories and background of the foods we sample and meet the people who make them.
  • We avoid crowds so you can experience the intimate charm of each unique place we visit.

Meet in Little Havana, a lively, family-friendly neighborhood, and begin a guided edible journey through one of Miami’s oldest neighborhoods. Learn about traditional, rustic Cuban cuisine by tasting your way through the must-visit street in the area — Calle Ocho. This tour is designed for both locals and visitors who want to learn about the area’s history while tasting some of the most delicious foods that have been prepared by the same families from recipes handed down through generations. Meet local artists, watch cigar rollers, take a peek at Domino Park – all while getting the insights of a vibrant Miami neighborhood.

“And while Little Havana has always been a mouthwatering Mecca of Cuban food, visiting this neighborhood on a Miami Culinary Tour is like having your own private Rosetta Stone, without all the annoying repetition.”

Lesley Abravanel Editor/Jet Miami/Fort Lauderdale

Our guided, narrated food tour is both a cultural and a culinary experience. All food tastings, more than enough for lunch, are included in the ticket price.

Delicious foods are savored at the Little Havana Food Tour:

  • You will try the best prepared coladita in town (seriously)
  • Cuban Mixto — leave knowing the history behind this legendary sandwich and how to differentiate the two types that are prominent in the state of Florida.
  • Mariquitas — learn how these plantain delicacies became a favorite snack.
  • Maduros omelette — this tasting is specially for foodies. Plus surprise your friends & family when you prepare this amazing dish at home!
  • Masitas — a must-try (pork) Cuban classic.
