Dining in Hong Kong is an experience you might not find elsewhere in the world. Foodies can revel in the broad scope of international fare within such a compact island. Visitors from overseas can feel right at home, thanks to the countless restaurants serving delicacies from just about every continent, but don’t skip out on Hong Kong's native cuisine.

Distinctly different from Szechuan and Shanghai taste, Cantonese fare reflects the traditionally health-conscious culture. Tonics and soups are prepared using carefully combined and measured ingredients to achieve the balance that is so important to the Chinese — the balance of yin (female or cool energy) and yang (male or warm energy), said to determine a person's overall well-being. Hong Kong is also popular for dim sum – bite-sized dishes you should enjoy for breakfast during your holiday.
