  • Hong Kong is the home of kung-fu movies and skyscrapers, but it's also home to an awesome food scene.

  • With its Chinese and British influences, Hong Kong is a melting pot of flavor.

  • It's a dining mecca with restaurants and eateries that range from budget-friendly noodle carts through to flamboyant Michelin star restaurants.

  • The majority of restaurants in Hong Kong don't preach polite service or fastidious presentation and instead prefer to focus on flavor and technique.

  • So here's my Hong Kong food guidewhat to eat and where to eat it.

  • It's not unusual to find a string of people lining up for breakfast in Hong Kong.

  • It's a regular occurrence at Ocean's Empire Congee, where you can have tasty rice porridge and you tiao (Chinese doughnuts) for breakfast.

  • If you want to have some of the best bo lo baau in Hong Kong, then head to Kam Fung.

  • Oh, and you have to remember, you must try their egg tarts.

  • There is just so much crumbly, flaky, custardy goodness in each and every bite.

  • One of the best expressions of Chinese and British fusion is probably cha chaan teng,

  • also known as the Hong Kong style breakfast, which kind of consists of ham and macaroni soup, fluffy scrambled eggs, and instant beef noodles.

  • For a similar style breakfast and equally fluffy eggs, you could also visit the Australian Dairy Company, Tong Chong Street Market, Ho Hung Lee, Fuk Kee Congee, and Lan Fong Yuen.

  • I love dim sum, and one of the best places to have dim sum in Hong Kong is at Tim Ho Wan in Sham Shui Po.

  • It is one of the cheapest Michelin star restaurants in the world.

  • Sham Shui Po is also known as one of the poorer areas in Hong Kong, but the food is nothing less than amazing.

  • The char siu buns are also crazy good and a must-try.

  • Seriously, they are addictive.

  • I'm always down to Din Tai Fung.

  • They have the best siu long baos, in my opinion, and an awesome assortment of dumplings to try.

  • They also have birthday buns that areyou know, shaped a little bit like butts; and we being the immature people we are, couldn't help but poke little holes in them.

  • Don't forget to try the dessert, too, because it's really ace as well.

  • Some other places for dim sum also include Fu Sing Restaurant, Sun Hing, One Dim Sum, Man Wah, and Ah Shun Shandong dumplings.

  • Char Siu Pork is probably one of the most well-known Cantonese dishes around the world.

  • While there are plenty of restaurants that specialize in char siu pork, we decided to visit Tai Hang for our roast pork, roast duck, and char siu pork fix.

  • Yum Cha at Central is where you can find cute custard buns with faces and they also offer food perfect for sharing based on some very Szechuan flavours.

  • Mak's noodles is a popular spot for wontons.

  • The soup base is solid, the wontons are delicious, and the noodles are fresh and have bite.

  • These fresh and fuss-free noodles can also be found in similar places, like Wong Lam Kee Chiu Chow, Kau Kee beef brisket noodles, Sister Wah, and Kai Kee noodles.

  • Put Little Bao on the list of places to eat at right now.

  • Their pork belly bao, their Szechuan fried chicken bao (which is amazing), and even the truffle fries are super delicious.

  • Don't forget to make a booking or else be prepared to wait.

  • The plus side is, is that they do deliver should you get late-night cravings.

  • If you want to test out some other Asian fusion, then head to Ho Lee Fuk, Atum, Ronin, or Yardbird.

  • Elephant Grounds has you covered for coffee and ice cream sandwiches.

  • But if you're feeling like ice cream and waffles and jelly, then Oddies Foodies is the way to go.

  • They even have guava-flavored ice cream.

  • If you're feeling like a bit more pastry with your ice cream, then definitely head over to Owl's Choux, where they specialize in a range of cool desserts.

  • Along with Owl's, Mammy's Pancake is also recognized as a place to visit on the Michelin Street Food Guide.

  • The hard part is choosing what flavor, as they've got choc chip, original, matcha, and even sweet potato.

  • Yee Shun is up there for traditional dessert with their double steamed milk pudding that is super soft, silky, and delicious.

  • I can't mention desserts without mentioning Hui Lau Shan and their mango romance, their mango delightful trio, and just all of their mango desserts and sago.

  • Other key dessert places of note also include Joyful Dessert House, Modos Hong Kong, Pan de Pain Pancakes, Lucky Dessert House, Via Tokyo, and Icecreameria.
