        you'll be eating canned/frozen food prepared in a kitchen. anything that's chilled or fresh will be fricking expensive with the exceptions of vegetables grown in mainland china or pork/chickens raised in mainland China.

      Go to a "cart noodle" shop. They days of them selling in carts is a bygone era, so nowadays they operate in restaurants.

      Based. Speaking of which, you usually can customize your noodles, right down to the soup base.

      >(British) egg tart
      Cantonese egg tart is fricking Portuguese, you mong. Came to Hong Kong via Macau and is a bastard great-grandchild of Pasteis de Nata or Pasteis de Belém.

      Milk tea *is* a true scion of the Empire, though. Like opium.

      So-called “dim sum,” or assorted dumplings/other small dishes to be consumed with tea, most traditionally as a late breakfast/early lunch, is totally worth seeking out, not least because it can offer a whole bunch of different flavors and textures in a single meal. Any Chinese dumpling, bun, or roll you’ve ever had can be found at its best somewhere in Hong Kong.

      “Red pork” (char siu) dishes of several types that have become synonymous with Chinese food globally are also Cantonese in origin and can be found prepared to a high standard in HK. A lot of “generic” Chinese noodle dishes are also originally Cantonese, and can be found done very well in HK.

      But many of my Chinese friends’ favorite Cantonese dishes (in HK and beyond) are less-common seafood preparations—things like sea cucumbers and jellyfish. I’ve had both and was frankly neither disgusted nor entranced, but they had very interesting textures and surprisingly mild, subtle flavors, and they’re uncommon elsewhere in China. Worth checking out if you’re curious.

    Where are the best hot soup dumplings in China?

      din tai fung

        I don't mean to call you out specifically, but Din Tai Fung makes some of the most bland (not a case of "you don't appreciate subtlety") xiaolongbao you can find in China, and probably in most cities in the world with sizable (non-Cantonese) Chinese detachments. Sure, it's probably one of your best bets in San Diego, but not the downtown Shenzhen K11 mall branch)
        I'm not even a hippie saying "broo you need to find the hidden local gems", nor am I the guy saying "you have to book a table at that one restaurant in Nanxiang district of Shanghai that all the Chinese influencers go to"
        Nor can I answer

        Where are the best hot soup dumplings in China?

        though.

          I'm sure Din Tai Fung is better than anything you'd get in China. They suck on rocks in China and they cook with oil from the sewer.

            Unfortunately, the gutter oil story came out of Taiwan, anon.

              Taiwan? LOL 🙂 Oh god, that's fricking funny. Is that like an excuse for bad behavior in China? "Those God damn Taiwanese are lying about us!"

              I've read about it from dozens US sources. Time magazine, the Atlantic and the Wall street Journal have all done stories on it. I've seen literally dozens of videos of people making it in China. The ministry of public security in China even released a huge statement claiming that they seized 3000 tons of sewer oil.

              https://www.wsj.com/articles/BL-CJB-15568

              You keep blaming Taiwan for all your problems though. 🙂 And enjoy that tasty sewer dumpling.

              Imagine that yo grew up in China eating dumplings made from literal recycled garbage and cooked in sewer oil. That must be a pretty particular flavor. It must be pretty different from American dumplings.

      Not Mainland China, but there's a place near Prince Edward Station that has mutton and cilantro dumplings.

    I hear this all the time as well, but no idea where it comes from. Maybe if you like seafood, it could be good, but I argue Singapore is better for that.
    HK food is just boring af, for British people it could be interesting, but that's about it.

    That said I did eat well there, had some good rice porridge for breakfast with lots of toppings at some hole in the wall place in Mong Kok, that was probably the most memorable. The dim sum, noodle soups, etc... Yeah, not bad, but in the mainland at least it has some taste, too.
    Din Tai Fung was fun to try in a couple of places, but indeed basically every soup dumpling place has amazing soup dumplings anyway. Shanghai and Taipei are better re soup dumplings.
