Hong Kong Wonton NoodleWhen in Hong Kong, a place one might remember for its heavenly flavors, there are  endless possibilities for the best food in Hong Kong.  There are many different staples that Hong Kong prides itself in, but something one must absolutely try is the classic wonton noodle.  While other main food dishes are inspired by the Chinese, one can get a taste of traditional, old-school Hong Kong in this meal.  It is in the style of noodles in soup, with small shrimp and pork dumplings wrapped in a thin flour and starch skin, which is cooked together with the thin but tough noodles in a flavorful soup.  This can be found at hawkers on the street, along with other staple hawker items, such as beef noodles, soy bean curd, and fish ball skewers.  This is one favorite in Hong Kong among countless others.  If one does not particularly enjoy Chinese food, Hong Kong is filled with cuisine from all over the world.  Oftentimes, its menu is described as a fusion of Chinese-based but with western influence, such as bread, steak, fried potatoes, pasta, coffee, coke, beer, and more.  It is also common to find excellent Indian and Southeast-Asian (Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam) cuisine here.  Below are the chief menu items one will not want to miss out on.

Hong Kong

Once visited, one will surely know that there are endless possibilities to the dilemma of what to do in Hong Kong.  On one side, Hong Kong is full of Chinese history and tradition.  A great way to get a taste of its culture is none other than grabbing a bite of some authentic dim sum.  One might consider Lin Heung (“Fragrant Lotus”) Tea House, a local spot with depleted seats and tables blown above by ceiling fans.  The place is decades old and owners have not bothered to modernize it, and is full of Cantonese speaking locals.  With all the urbanization and futuristic, technical reaches, this spot is one of the few that remains to represent an extremely traditional, classic culture of the district.  Another common to the traditional Hong Kong atmosphere is Dai Pai Dongs, or local street food stands.  Flip the tables, fast foward to present day and Hong Kong is a collection of islands summing up to 426 square miles and a population of seven million people.  Needless to say, it is more than urbanized.  The district boasts some of the most amazing technological advances and offers a wealth of ways for tourists to explore the culture, as well as enough luxurious hotels, shops, and restaurants to blow their wallets on.  But if one only had a few days here, below are the top attractions not to miss out on.
