Hidden Gems of Hong Kong: Food

Hong Kong. The city where anyone can make it. The city that literally never sleeps. Ever. It's a city of confusion, fascination and amazement. It's bustling with people, so busy you don't know where to go. But for some reason, it's the most amazing place on earth I have ever visited. Granted, I haven't been to tons of places, but out of the few I have, it is simply stunning.

The Food
Hong Kong was the start of our 6 week journey through South East Asia, and the only thing I could think about was food, bright lights, and more food.

This was our last meal on our final night before heading to Bangkok. We had decided to go back up to The Peak once more and found an amazing restaurant overlooking the entire city. The meal came to around $HK500 (approx. £40 or $US65) and it was amazing. I had never eaten somewhere so fancy before, and the view, well that was worth $500 to begin with. If you ever hear anyone say Hong Kong is expensive, don't believe them. Yes, accommodation may be pricey, but everything else is a steal! Our average meal would cost around $HK40 each, and the ferry cost $HK3 (£0.25!!!).

The view from the restaurant

If you're looking for somewhere to eat in Hong Kong, you only need to walk a few feet from wherever your standing and you'll soon find yourself overwhelmed with choice. But if you want to discover street upon street of food, hop on the MTR and head down to Mong Kok, Tsim Sha Tsui or Jordon. Mong Kok is the most densely populated place on earth, with an insane 340,000 people per Square Mile. To put that into perspective, Manhattan, NY has around 70,000 people per square mile. It's crazy, and awesome!
