iBooknow.com loves to travel and we love to eat, it’s one of the primary reasons we do travel. Within Asia we have found so many great cuisines, Thai, Japanese, Indian, Korean, Mongolian, Vietnamese, and of course Chinese. The Chinese have a vast cuisine that represents the enormity of the country, its people and culture. Within the menu of Chinese foods there are over 4,000 recognized dishes and eight distinct regional cuisines with a few subcategories worth mention:
- Dongting Lake
Although Chinese cuisine is generally regarded as having these eight distinct regional variations the foods of Shanghai, Hunan, Beijing, Chiu Chow, Hakka, Macau, Hainan, Taiwan, Yunnan, and the Northeast are also fantastic in their own right. Whichever one you choose as your favorite, or wish to try, the great thing about Hong Kong is that they are all available. There are few places in the world where foodies can taste all the regional Chinese cuisines like they can in Hong Kong. Everything from walled village dishes to Hong Kong-style teahouses and dai pai dong, the true essence of Hong Kong is evident in the indigenous food of China.
Hong Kong, which means “Fragrant Harbor”, lives up to is name by having well over 11,000 restaurants. Choosing which one to dine at can be a bit confusing, but in a city that thrives on its diversity and celebrates the culinary arts, overall the food is most often good if not excellent, fresh, and most often prepared to order regardless of cuisine. Whether it’s a local snack you buy on a street corner, a quick bowl of noodles or congee for breakfast, lunch or a late night pick-me-up, traditional hot pot or clay pot, or any of the thousands of stir-fried dishes you can find, Chinese food in Hong Kong is some of the best in the world and the International cuisines are just as good. For the denizens of Hong Kong, food is a very big part of the social fabric of their lives.
If you are on a budget, traveling with children or simply want variety Hong Kong has some great all you can eat buffets. Almost every hotel of consequence will have both lunch and dinner buffets and many restaurants have them for lunch. They feature not only Chinese food, but also a good selection of International dishes as well.
If you want to rub elbows with the locals and have a great traditional Chinese breakfast or lunch then go to a dim sum parlor. These restaurants specialize in Cantonese delicacies such as steamed dumplings, spring rolls, spare ribs, sou, a type of flaky pastry and a large selection of sweets.
Hong Kong is on the water so seafood is plentiful and much of it is prepared in the Cantonese style. Dining at a waterfront seafood restaurant or on Lamma island is a great way to spend an evening and also see a part of Hong Kong that is special. If you enjoy nightlife after dining then iBooknow.com suggests a visit to the area known as Lan Kwai Fong. One of Hong Kong’s trendiest nightlife areas that is packed with great restaurants and bars. A trip to Aberdeen or the Jumbo Kingdom restaurant that seats over 2,300 people and is featured in many Hong Kong movies is also well worth trying.
For something more traditional the old fishing village of Lei Yue Mun is very representative of old Hong Kong and it has a reputation for great seafood served in an alfresco setting. The dining in Lei Yue Mun is not done in the traditional manner. You will first shop for your food at market stalls and pick live items from large tanks. Then you choose a restaurant to eat in, and for a fee they will prepare you choices to your taste and style.
If you are in Hong Kong for an extended visit and develop an appetite for something other than Chinese food there are so many choices to choose from. Being a world class center for finance, manufacturing and trade Hong Kong has been catering to an International clientele since its inception back in the early 19th century. With close to 12 million International visitors a year, and over 30 million from the mainland, Hong Kong is geared up for visitors and ready to feed them all whatever they may be craving.
Hong Kong has a sub-tropical and monsoonal climate with cool dry winters and hot wet summers. The average temperature is approximately 23C/73F and ranges from about 15C/59F to 25C/77F during November until February, 18C/64F to 27C/80F in March & April, 25C/77F to 35C/95F in May through August and 25C/77F to 30C/86F in September & October. Hong Kong is an all-year-round destination but the best time to visit is from the middle of September to the end of February.
