How do you experience life as a Hong Kong local? Gate crash into the local hangout spots, of course!
I visit Hong Kong at least once a year. It’s like a second home to me so I am always on the lookout for authentic Hong Kong food. Eating like a local is not only a pocket friendly delight but your taste buds will thank you for not being short-changed by touristy menus.
I will keep you posted when I sniff out other hidden gems. Do you have any other recommendations? I would love to hear from you.
