Dining in Hong Kong

Sweet and sour pork, steamed shrimp dumplings and wontons, Hong Kong is famed for its tasty and varied food selection on offer.

For a truly unique experience whilst eating in this vibrant city, there is Jumbo Kingdom - a floating vessel moored just in Aberdeen Harbor. This barge - which is designed to look like an imperial palace - is home to four floors of eateries as well as tea houses and wine gardens, all able to sit over 2300 people at a time.

It had been years in the making but was finally built in 1976. It was designed by Dr. Stanley Ho and is covered in bright neon lights to attract attention to this wonderful imitation of traditional Chinese architecture. Whilst you're here, make sure to try a spot of seafood as this is what it is most famous for.

Any comic book fan would be crazy to miss a trip to Ease Café in the Golden Era Plaza. This café has over 5,000 comic books on display that you can pick off the shelves and read as you enjoy the delightful food and drink. It also offers fabulous views of the market stalls and neon signs of Mong Kok.

Last but not least on the must visit list is the Hello Kitty Chinese Cuisine, a restaurant completely dedicated to the popular Japanese character. Based in Yau Ma Tei, the restaurant opened in 2015 and serves a selection of Hello Kitty-themed dim sum and is perfect for those Instagram shots.

Speaking about the success of the restaurant previously, entrepreneur Man Kwong shared: "Hello Kitty is a young and famous icon. I wanted to choose something that's easy to promote to her fans. But the response has been 500 times better than I expected. It's all down to the merit of Hello Kitty."
