How about experiencing a Hong Kong taste bud for a day with a private guide?
Yes there are many food that just doesn't sound right in Chinese cuisines, however, out of the 8 major types of Chinese cuisines, Cantonese is the most popular out of them all and Hong Kong lives right in the heart of Cantonese cuisine. Let me walk you through our local food chain for a day from top presented to street bottom populars. Taste buds tingling?
Will begin from your hotel. Depending on how empty your stomache is on the day we will plan first on how much food we're going to have. Cantonese delicacies and local snacks will be the main focus of the day. There are a list of local must trys that I will show you. There are many places in Hong Kong that you really need a true local to show you, I personally don't really take weird food so I have a taste bud that is simular to yours, so you can relax about what you will be eating. The Hong Kong government has a tight regulation on food safety and hygiene measures, so there's no food safety hazards. So all you have to do is to prepare your stomache for the day and let me know your hungriness out of a rating of 1 to 5 on the day (1 being you are extreamly hungry) and just follow me.

If you are in Hong Kong for 3 days or more, I would recommend you to get a local "Octopus" card which is a top up card with credit inside to pay for most transports, vending machines, convenient stores, Starbucks, and many more chain stores. It cost HK$150 and it has got HK$100 credit and $50 as deposit which you can get back once you return the card. This card will save you a lot of time and hassle with carrying a lot of coins. We can got get one together if you are not sure.
