Hong Kong Food Trip Guide like a Local! (24H Itinerary)

Hongkong Mastermind-15.jpg

Hong Kong is a food trip haven and a good venue for hunting down the best spots where locals love to eat. It’s also a place full of tourist traps and expensive hotel breakfasts for travelers who are daunted by the plethora of options and are clueless about where to go.

It’s best to go where locals go because you are sure that you get to eat yummy, affordable food that comes with a unique experience. We recently had our Business Mastermind with our BizMindShare group over the weekend in Hongkong.

Here’s a simple itinerary on how to organize your own Eat-Like-a-Local Food Trip in Hong Kong.

KAM’S Roast Goose(Hong Kong): Better than Yat Lok or Yun Kee?

Related blog post: Kam’s Roast in Manila: How Does it Compare to HK?

Kam’s Roast Goose is a Cantonese style BBQ restaurant in the heart of Wan Chai Hong Kong. The establishment has won numerous awards for excellence and quality and was awarded its first Michelin Star in 2014. 

The busy restaurant sells around 100 geese per day that are shipped in daily from China and prepared in-house each morning.

Kam’s only uses Black Headed Geese which are 2.8-2.9 kilos each.  The relatively small geese are leaner and much tastier when compared to their more common counterparts.

The key to Kam’s success is that the geese are prepared using the freshest of ingredients and prepared with a tried-and-true recipe that has been handed down for generations.

Ask anybody in Hong Kong where to find the best goose and they will tell you Kam’s is the place to go.

Kams7Hardy Kam is the founder of Kam’s Roast Goose and 3rd generation restaurateur of the Kam Family. His grandfather Mr. Kam Shui Fai and father, Mr. Kam Kinsen Kwan founded the internationally acclaimed Yung Kee Restaurant in Central Hong Kong.

Hardy branched out to open Kam’s Roast Goose in 2014 and was awarded his first Michelin Star soon after, only having been operational for 4 months.

Hardy claims his success stems from running a small-scale operation and preserving the legacy that his family started. Quality ingredients and traditional Cantonese techniques, along with his hands on approach ensure customers have a pleasant experience and a delicious meal.

Did you know there is another side of Hong Kong besides its busy cityscape? When visiting Hong Kong, make sure to visit the Outlying Islands of Hong Kong for the hiking trails and their awesome scenery, a preview of the laid-back side of Hong Kong life, and for general great outdoor fun.

Apart from the best well-known Lantau Island where the Hong Kong Disneyland is situated at, there’re other outlying islands which can be experienced by day trip and very convenient.

Our boys loved the family hiking trail in Lamma, exploring the mountains and the fishing village of Tai O in Lantau Island. Make sure to have an extra time to explore the UNESCO Global Geopark of Hong Kong.

Here are the four experiences we highly recommend on your next trip to Hong Kong with your family (and how to get there easily):
