Was ihr unternehmen werdet

Ready to eat like a local? With that, we will whisk you away from the main tourist hot spots for Hong Kong food tours (I’m looking at you Mong Kok) and take you to my own neighbourhood, Whampoa, where no tourist has gone before. Truly off-the-eaten path and a hidden gem for tourists, but a known thriving food hotspot for the locals.

Eating your way through Whampoa like a progressive meal, you will learn about the 5 flavours in Chinese cuisine - sweet, spicy, salty, bitter and sour - and you'll be able to taste them all as well.

We will go to 6 different tasting locations so eat light before this food tour.

1. Drink BITTER tea and learn why we drink it
2. Try a local favourite bowl of noodles with SPICY broth
3. Try the most common trio of Hong Kong street food w/SALTY soy sauce. Here's the catch the fish dumplings are made from scratch, a rarity in HK.
4. Taste some Hong Kong style skewers with a SOUR drink at the late-night joint
5. Devour a SWEET & SALTY Hong Kong style crepe that is only available in this neighbourhood
6. Finish everything off with a refreshing SWEET traditional dessert with an interesting background story

Eat through HK's culture, history & traditions. Along the way, you'll visit the last female Mahjong tile carver in HK, the most famous Kwun Yam temple, & a waltz in the backyards of private & public housing estates. Wok n roll with us!
Other things to note
All events will be cancelled if the Hong Kong Observatory announces that the Red or Black Rainstorm Signal is hoisted or the Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal: T8, T9, or T10 is hoisted.

I'm Virginia & I run a local food tour company called Humid with a Chance of Fishballs Tours in Hong Kong (HK). Sound familiar? We took Foodie Youtuber Mike Chen from Strictly Dumpling around for street food. https://youtu.be/iFhqs3AyTAY How we wok n roll!

We want tourists to see the real HK, thru food. You are going to eat through HK's culture, traditions & history. HCFT is a small team of guides - Virginia, John, & Kelly.

We're bi-lingual (Cantonese & English). We make sure to go to the real mom & pop shops which are decades-old, & several generations passed down so you can hear all the great stories behind the people that cook the food.

This was my first food tour. Virginia certainly made the whole experience feel really comfortable. We saw a side to Hong Kong that I otherwise wouldn’t have known about. Seeing the local culture up close and experiencing the foods that the locals eat, gave this food tour a whole new level of interest. Totally recommended. Virginia was a great host and kept us entertained and informed the whole time. She has a real passion for sharing her knowledge of the history and foods of Hong Kong. Thank you Virginia!

This was such a unique and interesting food tour! Virginia is so friendly and has such an amazing personality, you instantly feel like you have made a new friend in Hong Kong that knows all of the best food spots! Each of the stops were delicious, my favorites was the noodles (seriously the best I’ve ever had!). She also taught us about the local history of an off-the-beaten-path neighborhood that we would have never otherwise visited. If you’ve been to Hong Kong before (or even if it’s your first time!) and want to experience something new, I highly recommend this tour!

Kelly took is on a walking tour of an area of Hong Kong that is usually not open to tourists. If you are a little adventurous, you will be richly rewarded with this quirky tour full of history, culture and deliciously unexpected street foods. Be prepared to eat--a lot!--and walk a fair bit. With Kelly at your side you will blend in with the locals, go to some legendary corners of this neighborhood and experience the Hong Kong that very few tourists get to know. It was a blast! Pro tip: Limit your food intake in preparation for this tour so you take full advantage of every tasting.

Virginia led us through her home district of Whampoa. We tried a variety of delicious local fare from small family-owned businesses. She seems to have built a really good relationship with these vendors and know their personal stories. Virginia also introduced us to the history of Whampoa and took us to a few cultural landmarks along the way. I would recommend this tour to anyone who’s unfamiliar with Whampoa area, or looking to try more interesting dishes that are unique to Hong Kong.

My wife posted a detailed review so I’ll keep it short. This was a great tour. Virginia was friendly and honest. The food was delicious and interesting. Virginia’s information about the neighborhoods and culture were very informative and put everything in context. Highly recommend.
