If there is one thing that connects all people from across the globe that would most likely be food. I believe we all silently acknowledge food as the true universal language which speaks through its aromas, flavors and, ultimately, taste. Words are really just secondary when it comes to food and it is because of this that most, if not all, countries primarily use food to make visitors experience their country’s culture the best.
Hong Kong, a major tourist hotspot, is one of those countries that really take advantage of their abundant and variant food ranging from Michelin-star restaurants, affordable everyday eateries and, what is likely the most popular and cheapest option for locals and travelers alike, their street food scattered all throughout the island country.
