Cheung Chau’s dining scene is exactly what you’d expect of a part of Hong Kong best known for its old-fashioned atmosphere. It’s a great place to find simple yet satisfying local dishes like dim sum, fish balls and fried noodles. Being a fishing community, there’s a special focus on fresh seafood at the many great restaurants located right on the coast.

    The must-see food event of the year on Cheung Chau is the annual Bun Festival. It’s based on the lunar calendar, so the exact date shifts each year, but it’s worth looking up when it’ll happen. It’s a great opportunity to try the local delicacies, as well as watching competitors clamber up an 18-metre-tall tower to reach a prized bag of buns.
