I’m an American east-coaster – a West Virginian to be precise – and I moved to Hong Kong in 2008. Determined to not be bound by the typical trappings of expattery, I slowly learned to speak Cantonese, read Chinese, and take roads less travelled. I integrated, and in the process I fell head-over-heels for this place and it’s people.
We can go absolutely anywhere in Hong Kong that interests you, but let me suggest we fuse food into the experience by dishcrawling our route. Instead of eating an entire meal in only one place, we’ll roam between restaurants – sampling best-of-breed dishes – and between food stops we’ll allow ourselves digestion time by exploring the unique attractions along the way. We’ll do it like any local would – by foot and public transportation – and Cantonese will open doors to us that would otherwise be closed. You’ll also have full control over how stomach-challenging you’d like your experience to be (from rice and noodles to fallopian tubes and sandworm jellies) and I’ll pay close attention to any allergies, aversions, or special requests you have.
You’re sure to be full by the end of our journey, but you’ll also be hungry for more, and I’ll be here whenever you’re ready to pick up where we left off.
