Hong Kong food and drink

When it comes to eating out and eating well, Hong Kong is a veritable smorgasbord of sublime tastes and tastebud-tantalising styles. From its Chinese-influenced dim sum scene to fresh-off-the-boat seafood and some of Asia’s finest fusion dining, there’s no shortage of impressive places to eat in Hong Kong. Hong Kong dining runs the gamut from streetside hawker fare to upscale Michelin-starred restaurants and includes everything in between. Some Hong Kong residents eat out every night of the week, so enjoying a sumptuous meal is often as simple as stepping outside and taking a seat at the nearest eatery.

Hong Kong restaurant precincts

Foodie neighbourhoods are gloriously abundant in Hong Kong, and there are over 14,000 restaurants in the city. The Starstreet precinct on Honk Kong Island is a fashionable (and vast) dining neighbourhood, the gourmet hub of Kowloon City offers up a host of Asian specialties, and the range of delicacies to be found on Hau Fook Street make it one of Kowloon's best-kept secrets.

Hong Kong pubs and nightlife

Hong Kong turns on the style when the sun dips below the skyscrapers looming over Victoria Harbour, with this cosmopolitan city home to some of Asia's hottest nightclubs and most vibrant bars. From casual drinks to full-blown nights on the town, Hong Kong's nightclub and bar scene provides yet another compelling reason to visit a destination which proudly proclaims itself to be Asia's world city.

Hong Kong food markets

Hong Kong food markets are also known as ‘wet markets', because all that fresh seafood is set on ice and… you get the idea. The ‘cooked food markets' within the wet markets are where you'll find plenty of hidden culinary gems. Try Tai Po Hui Market and Cooked Food Centre, although there are 64 wet markets that have cooked food stalls in Hong Kong, so you can eat your heart out!
