Description

Get a taste of the real Hong Kong on this 4-hour food tour of Tai Po Market district, a delicious yet less-visited district of the city that's home to an ample amount of amazing eats. With an experienced guide to show you the way, you'll sample such dishes as roasted goose, fresh seafood (paired with beer) and steamed rice rolls. Adventurous eaters: Don't miss a taste of the snake soup. This walking tour is limited to 12 people for a small-group experience.

Hong Kong may be one of the best cities for eating on the planet, and the city of seven million people boasts many well-documented hot spots. But if you want to visit an area with less tourists, head to the Tai Po Market district. Here you'll visit up to six family-run spots and sample a variety of popular dishes in Hong Kong.

After you meet your guide at the Tai Po Market station, start the tour with delicious steamed rice rolls and a plate of tender roasted goose atop a bed of rice noodles. You'll also venture over to a dai pai dong, a type of local food stall that is slowly disappearing from the Hong Kong restaurant landscape. Get a taste of the stall's fresh seafood dishes, which you can wash down with beer.

If you're a no-fear eater, you'll love the steamy bowls of snake soup served up at the next stop. Dessert lovers, on the other hand, will be happier once they are nibbling on homemade candy and delicious homemade sweets at nearby Chinese dessert shops.
