This was going to be my weekend guide to Hong Kong but so far everything I listed was about food, naturally. So I thought this would be a great foodies guide to Hong Kong 🙂 I hope you all know how much I love food and don’t like to settle for bad food. Way to many times have I decided to “treat” myself, out only to have the food disappoint. Waste of money and calories! I won’t let this happen to you.
Since I am obsessed with Instagram (follow me on Instagram if you haven’t already!) and reading other bloggers recommendations, I felt like I came into Hong Kong prepared with an army of food choices. Hong Kong is a hard place to narrow down the best food places because there is so much around you!
Here is the ultimate foodies guide to Hong Kong!
A Foodies Guide To Hong Kong
Mana – Mana is probably one of the best “fast food” vegetarian places I have been to in Hong Kong. I’ve been there about four times now and love it. You can get wraps, salad bowls, desserts, juices. All of it is vegetarian and relatively cheap. It’s crazy busy at lunch time so avoid peak times. Also their falafel wrap is amazing. Deff try.
Cupping Room – It’s pretty easy to walk by this place if you don’t know where it is! Tucked away on Hong Kong Island this is a great place to grab a coffee or a toastie! Aaron and I stopped in for a coffee one day and decided to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air.
Lok Cha Tea House – A vegetarian foodies dream! All I wanted was some dim sum for my birthday so I was stoked to find this dim sum house in Hong Kong Park! I went a little crazy ordering but everything was really good. The only thing I wouldn’t get again was the sesame rice wraps because it tasted like peanut butter on a floppy rice paper. Their dumplings and onion cakes were awesomeeee though, I highly recommend. You have to order a tea with your food which I thought was strange. The tea is as expensive as the food so choose wisely.
Teakha – When I saw the name Teakha I knew I had to go! Teakha is the name of my dog so I couldn’t help myself. We got some scones and the matcha white chocolate one was amazinggg. Since Teakha is such a small cafe you have to order a drink as well in order for the owners to keep the place running. I wasn’t a huge fan of the chai I got but it’s worth checking out.
Mammy Pancake – If you’ve every Googled food in Hong Kong then you’ve probably seen one of the famous egg waffles. Hong Kong is famous for their egg waffles and this is definitely the place to get them! I got the chestnut egg waffle and Aaron got the coffee one. I really wanted to go back and try the green tea and chocolate but didn’t have time. Next time I will for sure! If you’re a foodie Instagramer this is your place!
Tai Cheong Bakery – This bakery is on my foodies guide for obvious reasons. I’ve had egg tarts all over Canada and nothing can compare to this bakery! And it’s still one of the best bakeries I’ve ever been to. This place is usually lined up out the door but it moves quick. Their egg tarts are unreal. Hands down one of my favourite to go treats in Hong Kong.
Dim Sum Square – While their vegetarian menu is limited they are really cheap and really good. I got mostly deserts and Aaron got an assortment of dim sums. I share all my foodie loving on Instastories so make sure you’re following so you don’t miss out!
Cafe Deco Pizzeria – We went here twice one weekend in Hong Kong and loved it! I was just outside of our Airbnb so it was super convenient. Their pizzas are awesome and you can get take out. It’s about $25 Canadian for one pizza so the prices are steep but I think that’s average for Hong Kong?
Ozone – The highest bar in the world. If you’re looking for a really fancy place to go then this is it! You can go for an afternoon drink or experience Hong Kong at night. I went there for drinks and appetizers and while the portions we small they were really good. It has a bit of a pretentious atmosphere but is still really nice.
The Envoy – I went to The Envoy for some night cap drinks on my birthday. Since I went there for my birthday I decided that Aaron would treat me to french fries and a cocktail! They have an intimate rooftop bar so it’s a great place to get a little more fancy than normal and to grab some seriously cool drinks. One of their drinks comes in a dinosaur egg. Still kicking myself I didn’t get any photos.
