Must-try Cantonese dishes when visiting Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a dining paradise for hungry travelers. You can find cuisines from all over the world here, but it would be a sin to miss out on traditional Cantonese food, Hong Kong’s native cuisine. From succulent roast goose to sweet egg tarts, don’t leave without trying some of the following dishes.

Hailing from the Guangdong province, Cantonese cuisine is now popular throughout all of China. Though dim sum is synonymous with Cantonese food, there’s a whole range of other dishes to try too.
  • Char siu bao (Barbecue pork bun)

    Char siu bao consists of a fluffy, white bread bun stuffed with pieces of syrupy, slow-roasted barbecued pork (char siu). The buns are traditionally steamed, but baked char siu bao is also popular. You can find char siu bao on dim sum menus as well as from streetside snack vendors.

  • Hainanese chicken rice

    Hailing from the Hainan province in Southern China, this boiled, white-cut chicken dish is packed with flavor. From upscale restaurants to the night markets, you can find this insanely popular dish throughout the Cantonese region. With the chicken’s skin glistening, sitting next to a steaming pile of rice and a small dish of ginger-scallion dipping sauce.

  • Rice rolls

    Rice rolls, also known as rice noodle rolls, or steamed rice rolls, are a widely popular and traditional dish served in the Guangdong province. Due to the shape of the food, which resembles a pig’s intestines, the rice roll’s name is frequently translated to “intestine noodle.” Although the direct translation of the name can be misleading, the rice noodle rolls are traditionally stuffed with seafood, meat, and vegetables.

  • Turnip cakes

    Turnip cakes are also called radish cakes, and are a traditional dim sum dish, with a very simple recipe. The cakes are most commonly made from just a few ingredients, but vary from place to place; it is not uncommon to see turnip cakes with minced meat or seafood as an ingredient as well. Turnip cakes are typically fried but are at times steamed. They taste best when doused in soy sauce, or when served with hoisin sauce and chili flakes.

  • Congee with century egg

    Probably the most popular breakfast food for millions of locals, congee is basically just rice porridge. A bowl of warm rice porridge with slivers of lean pork and pieces of century egg (an extremely rich, flavorful type of preserved egg) is a staple dish in Hong Kong. The rich egg flavors contrast superbly against the simple, warming flavors of white rice and pork.

  • Steamed chicken feet

    Westerners who are weirded out by the idea of eating chicken feet avoid this dish, which is a pity, because they’re incredibly delicious and succulent when braised in black bean sauce. Just be sure to spit out the bones as you eat.

  • Clay pot rice

    Clay pot rice is also a strongly featured Guangzhou food. Local people cook the rice in the pot bowel and then add what they like on the rice to cook it all well, such as Chinese sausage and preserved meat, spare ribs, chicken, vegetables, etc. The tasty ingredients and aroma of rice make the chew very satisfying. Besides the above recommendations, there are far more delicious gourmets popular and complimented by local Cantonese and foreign visitors.

  • Egg tarts
