Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Experience hosted by Johnson

4 hours
Includes food, tickets
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do



Hong Kong is famous for its traditional food and culture. But not knowing the language or being a vegetarian makes it so confusing! By joining this tour, you will be able to immerse in our wonderful culture and discover the hidden culinary delights (instead of resorting to salads every meal).

Let's walk to the most authentic part of Hong Kong where I will show you the best places with awesome tastings that showcase our way of life (some of which are Michelin recommended)! I will teach you what to order from eateries you will never discover alone, even if the stall may not appear to have vegetarian options.

We will also walk through many special markets and temples along the way, so you can be immersed in our unique culture - from our table manners and etiquette, to our faith and superstitions.

After signing up, I will also give you my vegetarian restaurants recommendations right away so you can start exploring great eateries in town by yourselves!

Note: Vegans, Flexitarians, Meatlovers are all welcome!

Like tens of thousands of other Hong Kongers, during full moon, instead of becoming a werewolf, I turn into a vegetarian. Why? Join the tour to find out!

Hong Kong is one of the top food capitals in the world, and the food (vegetarian or otherwise) we have to offer is incredible. Having been to over 60+ vegetarian restaurants in Hong Kong, I want to show you our delicious food and why they are super important.

As a local Hong Konger who lived in Sydney for half my life, I'll be able to help you break the language barrier to understand all about the nuances of our food and culture.

Where you'll be

We will roam through Sham Shui Po (15 min from Central MTR), the most local area of Hong Kong, to taste traditional, authentic food. We will spend around half the time in food places, and half the time around markets and temples to explore the cultural side. Please expect to do around 3-4km of walking (with stops in between).

This experience was definitely one of the highlights of our holiday to Hong Kong. Johnson was a great tour guide. The pace was excellent - a great walking tour with lots of discussion and regular stops to different food outlets. A real range of food that we would otherwise never have tried / found. We felt this was excellent value for money also as all food was included in the cost (we definitely didn’t leave hungry!) and the tour alone was fantastic. We’ve been telling friends and family all about this experience. A must do whether you are vegetarian or not!

This was all around a great opportunity to learn about Hong Kong cuisine with a specific focus on what is available for vegetarians. Johnson knows a lot about many things-- culture, history, food, and architecture, among others-- and shares his knowledge in a friendly way. From having lived much of his life in Australia, he also understands how an outsider might be experiencing what probably seems completely normal to someone who has lived in Hong Kong their whole life. My only regret is not having enough room in my stomach to eat all the amazing treats we got at lunch and on our snack stops.

Vegetarians in Hong Kong - it's an interesting challenge! My husband, daughter, and I were so lucky to have taken Johnson's walking and eating tour. He told us about the history of the area and fed us some very yummy and very interesting items that we wouldn't have found on our own if we had a month to explore. We ate some absolutely delicious snacks and treats as we made our way to our big Yum Cha lunch, including tofu pudding (don't let the name scare you!) and rice noodle rolls which are the BEST. Johnson was sweet, engaging, and eager to show us his stomping grounds. Would highly recommend taking his tour. A quick tip - there is a lot of walking, and it is HOT. Bring lots of water and buy one of those crazy portable fans that you can wear like a fan necklace.

This was a lot of fun, and I had the pleasure of visiting a variety of places with vegetarian/vegan food. Although this experience would be better for visitors without prior knowledge of HK food, this is still good for those who are interested in checking out some of the coolest spots for vegetarian food!

Was a great experience! Would recommend! Johnson is such a cool guy and is easy to talk to. He knows the culture and language and also has an Australian accent, which just makes him even cooler. He’s very willing to answer questions and accommodate people’s preferences as best as he can. He even helped me find how to get to my next stop after the tour was over.

I really enjoyed this food tour with Johnson! He definitely has a lot of knowledge about Hong Kong and its vegetarian food scene. He truly provided us with an authentic experience and took us to restaurants I would have never found on my own. The highlight of the tour, for me, was the vegetarian dim sum restaurant. All the food we ate was packed with flavor and absolutely delicious. I highly recommend booking this tour!
