Must Try Street Foods in Wan Chai – Eat Like a Hong Konger

Hong Kong cuisine is unlike anything else in the world, where the locals have taken western influences from the colonial days to unfathomable gastronomic heights.

Pineapple Buns

This is one of the most iconic street snacks of Hong Kong; these buns however don’t actually contain any pineapple though, but are sweet and pillow-soft, with a slice of butter placed into their centre.

Egg Tarts

This is essentially a hybrid of an English custard tart and a Portuguese pastel de nata, a kind of egg tart. Egg tarts have a uniquely eggy kind of custard that is heavenly when combined with the flaky pastry. These are an essential experience when dining in Hong Kong.

Fried Pig Intestines

Yes, these definitely do not sound appealing, but are still extremely popular among locals and tourists are like. Intestines are rolled and skewered before being fried. These are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, being full of flavour with a taste similar to that of bacon.

Egg Waffles

These consistently come out on top where popularity and indulgence is concerned, and are instantly recognisable due to their unique appearance, bearing a collection of spherical shapes similar to eggs in a tray. This is made by pouring the egg batter into a special griddle with cells. If you’re on vacation at a hotel such as Cosmo Hotel Hong Kong, be sure to head out and sample the king of Hong Kong street food!
