Hong Kong

Hong Kong (Cantonese: [hœ́ːŋ.kɔ̌ːŋ] ( listen)), officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is an autonomous territory on the eastern side of the Pearl River estuary in South China. Along with Macau, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, and several other major cities in Guangdong, the territory forms a core part of the Pearl River Delta metropolitan region, the most populated area in the world. With over 7.4 million Hongkongers of various nationalities in a territory of 1104 km2, Hong Kong is the fourth-most densely populated region in the world.

These are some of the most prominent foods found in Hong Kong. Of course, there are Hong Kong restaurants here in America. For example, there are "dim-sum/ yum-cha" restaurants here in the US, as well as the eggettes (aka "gai daan jai") like from Quickly's. However, I've been told by my grandmother that the food in Hong Kong beats them by far. If you can't go to Hong Kong, try some of these foods in the nearest Hong Kong style restaurant near you. Overall, Hong Kong cuisine whether it be the savory or the sweet, is a must try!
