Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong are where you ought to start
As we said, naturally, in Hong Kong you’ll find restaurants offering food from every diverse region of China and these make an excellent starting point if you’re looking for an introduction to Hong Kong’s food and drink scene. A summary of such diversity is difficult, but generally speaking, Cantonese cuisine specialises in dim sum – excellent news for those that like dumplings – northern, or Peking food usually focuses more on noodles, spicy sauces or fried stuff (Peking duck, anyone?), while Szechuan food goes big on chilli and barbequed meats. There are, of course, plenty more regions of Chinese than just these, so if you’re after something a little more unusual then why not try Hakka cuisine? Here the speciality is salt-baked chicken and if you can find a restaurant in Hong Kong that serves it right then, well, you’re in for a treat.
