Hong Kong is one of the best cities in the world to eat the mixture of Western and Chinese influences comes through in all the amazing dining opportunities it's no matter what your budget this is ridiculously good food to try from michelin-starred restaurants to casual eateries and street side vendors so let me give you a taste of what hong kong has to offer 1:32 is one of Hong Kong's most exciting fine-dining Chinese restaurants they reimagined Sichuanese Cantonese and Shanghainese food using premium ingredients so that barbecue uses a very good pork ETSU Meyer has black truffle in it and that Peking duck is roasted with Applewood which makes it taste pretty good thank you so Joseph pretty much the best thing ever anyway but this is a bureaucrat porch a suit and they use a local mountain honey as well so I'm told it's free legit oh my god that's pretty much the greatest thing you can ever have ciaossu ten out of ten so this is Mapo tofu the normal ones kind of like an old grandma style dish but this is pimped up big time as you can see with the fresh Lobster in it sir I didn't see how you could get wrong but I'll give it a stir it's pretty good it just takes it to another level thank you I've had loads of Sumire before but I've never had it with black truffle and in the middle of this one is little quail egg that all being well should be running out it is Hong Kong has these cafes that specialize in Hong Kong style food and can walk a PHA here in Mong Kok is one of the most famous it's not Cantonese food but more of a Hong Kong take on Western food to think macaroni and spam soup or ham and egg sandwiches it can be a little bit strange at first but if you open up your mind it can be remarkably great so this is a pretty classic dish its luncheon meat egg and macaroni and soup so many Hong Kong's we'll see this is comfort food that's like good for you it's nourishing its kind of warms you up so that's why it's it's so popular for breakfast this is really a breakfast dish to pop out this is a Jew pop out which translates literally to pork chop but super juicy one of my favorite Japanese restaurants outside of Japan is Ronin they've taken the izakaya concept and open up this really cool dining bar here and showing one that says a range of different dishes depending on what's available at the market that day so this is a Bombay duck spring roll it's using a kind of fish actually used to be really popular in India tried but in Hong Kong you usually get it in Thai pythons kind of deep-fried with salt and pepper this is flour crab and Ernie it's one of Ronan's signatures I've been looking forward to trying this really cold you know like the Ernie just makes everything really creamy in between the crab so one of the really cool things they do here is actually produce some of their own spirits this one is actually shochu into Japanese rice the QR and then you infuse it with other platelets at this instant with coffee beans this kind of works well as a dessert to the meal because they don't actually do desserts here so finish it off with this that's really good it's like a strong alcoholic espresso we're definitely not done eating yet check out part 2 where we go to Tong PO diaper gong to drink and party with the awesome owner you
