About A Day in Hong Kong

The best of Hong Kong cuisine, from AM to PM.

A Day in Hong Kong is a culinary journey through one of the world’s most vibrant cities. A place that’s bursting at the seams with incredible food and the people who love to eat it. Experience the city through its most iconic dishes, then recreate your favourites at home.

From bustling wet markets to fine-dining restaurants, this book takes you on a delicious food adventure from breakfast through to dinner, showcasing the diverse tastes and ingredients of Chinese cuisine. Start the day with a traditional Hong Kong breakfast: congee (rice porridge) and yau cha kwai (oil fried bread sticks). As the day progresses, street eat recipes include Sichuan-style chāo shǒu (wontons), fresh and steaming har gow dim sum (steamed shrimp dumplings), and ngau lam mein (beef brisket noodles). There’s plenty of sweets, too – including ‘pineapple’ bread, alongside a cup of HK-style milk tea.

Capture the delicious flavours of Hong Kong at home with 70 recipes and insider tips on where to find the best local eats.
