Our favorite HK eats, with a twist.
Love dim sum?
Try the cross-cultural take on teatime with east-meets-west dumpling purveyors Man Mo Cafe. Think xiaolongbao soupy dumplings stuffed with foie gras, truffle and brie potstickers and duck fried rice risotto. Purists will be horrified...

Love Hong Kong-style milk tea?
Try the "HK Tea Time" cocktail from Little Lab. Innovative cocktail bar Little Lab's version of the classic Hong Kong drink is made with 12-year Dewar's, house-made milk tea syrup and evapourated milk, topped with off craft beer and chocolate bitters.
Love spam and egg instant noodles?
Try the super-fly ramen at Foxtail & Broomcorn. This hip-as-hell noodle bar does MSG-free, gourmet takes on noodle dishes from all over Asia. Think onsen eggs broken over freshly-made ramen, Hokkien noodles with pulled pork in prawn broth, and vanilla salmon on top of cold Vietnamese noodles.
Love the Mister Softee ice cream truck?
Have a taste of the kooky soft-serve ice cream from Soft Creme. It comes in crazy flavors, from umeshu (sour plum) to flamed bacon, champagne and cereal milk.
