After Dark Food Crawl - Kowloon Edition
Explore the “dark side” of Hong Kong - this food crawl will take you to the heart of Shum Shui Po. Some might call it the new Brooklyn, but to locals who grew up in town, it’s THE neighbourhood that captures the very essence of Hong Kong culture and history.
1st stop: visit Ashley’s favourite dumpling spot in town for some freshly made steamed dumplings as pan-fried leek and pork dumplings. You’ll get to see the owners wrapping dumplings like a crazy machine at the back of the restaurant.
As we stroll through the neighbourhood, learn more about Hong Kong history, local culture of neon signs and dai pai dong. We’ll then visit a dai pai dong that will be closing for good at the end of November, a legendary noodles food stall that churns out insanely delicious sweet soy sauce noodles with scallions, beef /cuttlefish balls, and marinated pork knuckles with fermented bean curd. We’ll wash down the food with a few bottles of beer too!
After this, we’ll head over to an old school herbal tea shop that has been around for more than 40 years. Drink herbal tea like a local and get some much needed summery heat relief with iced, floral herbal tea.
Last stop: we’ll head to the OG dai pai dong in the neighbourhood for a feast. Watch the chefs cooking up a storm in the kitchen on the street, this restaurant is one of 21 dai pai dongs left in town. You’ll get to savour classic Cantonese stir-fry dishes such as stir-fry veggies with Cantonese cured meat, stir-fry clams with black bean sauce, deep fried calamari with salt and pepper, lemon chicken and more. Rain and shine (unless it’s Black Rain/T8).
