Getting Acquainted with Hong Kong Cuisine

Where does one even begin to try to understand, much less describe the cuisine of Hong Kong. From dim sum and dai pai dong, to 5-star dinners in the rarefied air high above the din of cart vendors on the bustling streets below, Hong Kong is the epicenter of eclectic Asian Cuisine.

Cantonese influence is strong, but no more so than the constant influx of the latest international trends. A bounty of fresh seafood is available in the Lei Yue Mun Seafood Village and can even be purchased fresh off the boat and carried to your favorite restaurant, where you can have it prepared to order. So, when it comes to Hong Kong cuisine...anything goes.
