Must Eat in HK

In Hong Kong, eating is not always about what you put in your gob, or even where. To experience the vibrant eating culture, you also have to consider when to eat. Hot, humid days are the probable cause of the busy night markets found in southern China; but in Hong Kong this tropical custom is only one factor in the popularity of midnight munchies. Other factors include the 24 hour nature of this fast paced city and the tendency of its industrious population to work late into the evening. Whatever the reasons, if you get on the Hong Kong clock and schedule your meal a bit later, youll be able to experience some of the citys truest flavors.

Dim sum

Dim sum means touch your heart and with as many as 150 items on a restaurant menu, and 2,000 in the entire range, it is a challenge to not find something you love. As Cantonese people tend to avoid fried foods early in the day, steamed dishes dominate most dim sum menus. There are also snack-sized portions of pan-fried, deep-fried, and baked served in bamboo containers, which are designed to be eaten communally and washed down with tea. Hence, going for dim sum is known as yum cha, which literally means drinking tea. Usually a brunch or lunch affair, it is a common form of family, co-worker and other group get-togethers.

Barbecue

Barbecue might conjure up images of steaks and salad in a backyard, and while this is also common in Hong Kong it comes nowhere near the popularity of Chinese barbecue. Known as siu mei, restaurants serving these barbecued meats -- they also usually serve a delicious type of steamed chicken C are your window into traditional Chinese roasts. It is impossible to miss this cuisine in Hong Kong because after the highly-seasoned meats are roasted on spits over an open fire or in a rotisserie oven, they are hung inside the restaurant and visible from the street. Youll see it hanging in fast-food chains, high-end restaurants and supermarkets. It is a sight C and taste -- that is ubiquitous wherever there are Chinese communities.

Fusion

For a city that has been a crossroads of cultures since its inception, it is no wonder that Hong Kongs kitchens fuse the flavors of different countries and regions. In the colonial period, people arrived in Hong Kong from all over China bringing their regional styles of cooking with them and later blending them together. Then Chinese chefs started adding soy sauce to European dishes, creating a new discipline known as Soy Sauce Western. From here the innovations multiplied and created the culinary capital of Asia, where you can taste fusion flavors everywhere from street.
