Description

Hong Kong is an explorer's dream and a food-lover's paradise. It's the bowl of beef sa cha noodles washed down with a hot cup of signature Hong Kong milk tea at one of the city's countless cha chaan teng. It's the bamboo baskets filled with delicate dumplings placed onto pristine white tablecloths at a Michelin-starred dim sum restaurant. It's the cocktail-fused table of friends hungrily dipping crab claws and wagyu beef into aromatic hotpot at midnight.

Like the city itself, Hong Kong Local celebrates the traditional and contemporary Cantonese cuisine that is cherished by locals and fervently adored by visitors, while embracing the extraordinary influences that continue to shape Hong Kong's unrivalled food scene. Hong Kong Local is packed with delicious yet approachable recipes, so you can recreate the magic of Hong Kong at home.
