In Hong Kong, the choice of cuisines represents just about every cooking style and countries from around the world. Naturally, Asian cuisines are well-represented, and include Indian, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Singaporean, Thai and Vietnamese, as well as Nepalese, Filipino and Sri Lankan.

Where to eat in Hong Kong is simply a matter of choice, and ranges from fine dining in top hotels to popular food districts such as Lan Kwai Fong, Tsim Sha Tsui, Causeway Bay and Stanley. Dotted around the city are restaurants offering European and American cuisines, as well as award-winning French and Italian outlets.

For gourmet lovers visiting Hong Kong, it could easily take a whole month to sample every kind of worldwide culinary experience, ranging from Austrian, British, Californian, German and Greek to Iranian, Lebanon, Mexican, Moroccan, Portuguese, Scandinavian and Spanish. There are also Halal and Kosher restaurants, and those serving vegetarian dishes cooked in Chinese, Indian and Western styles.

Fast-food lovers will not be disappointed, either, as hamburgers, cakes, sandwiches and pizza are as popular here as in any world city. There are also family-run Chinese noodle houses and quaint teahouses serving quick and delicious snacks.

Hong Kong takes its claim to be the "Culinary Capital of Asia" very seriously, and visitors soon discover that whatever their preference, Hong Kong has the cuisine to satisfy their palate. So be adventurous when you visit and enjoy the pleasurable experience of eating around the world.
