Eating in Hong Kong

One of my favorite things to do in Hong Kong is eat. Yes, there is more to Hong Kong than food, like Tian Tan Buddha and Victoria Peak:

Victoria Peak Hong Kong

But you gotta eat!

If we find a killer airfare, we will book a flight to Hong Kong just to eat. I’m not even joking.


In March 2017 we went to Hong Kong and only stayed 40 hours.

Forty glorious hours of eating.

Below are some of my favorite Hong Kong Restaurants you don’t want to miss.

Spring Deer is the place for Peking Duck in Hong Hong, in my opinion.

Spring Deer Hong Kong

It’s a modest restaurant with an old school vibe and their duck is the perfect balance of crispy skin and tender meat.

Hong Kong

They opened their doors in the 70’s and I don’t think they’ve changed much since day one.

Hong Kong

And it is perfect.

Hong Kong

I absolutely love authentic Korean BBQ and that’s exactly what you’ll find at Chang Won Korean Restaurant.

Hong Kong

Chang Won opened in 1976 and was the first Korean restaurant on Kimberley Street, also known as Korean Street.

And since they are open until 5am, this is a great spot to remember on those late Hong Kong nights.

Hong Kong

Dim Sum Square is another authentic and inexpensive dim sum restaurant in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong

People rave about their Crispy BBQ Pork Buns and some even say they rival the ones found at Tim Ho Wan.

Hong Kong

Dim Sum Square and Tim Ho Wan are both excellent options for Dim Sum in Hong Kong, but the atmospheres are completely different.

Hong Kong

Just go to both . . . you won’t be sorry!
