Chinese Food in Hong Kong

Roast Crispy Goose
Roast Crispy Goose
Hong Kong boasts many restaurants. Among them, Cantonese restaurants are found in the greatest numbers. This is because Hong Kong is not far from Guangdong, and also because many people in Hong Kong are descendants of Guangdong people. Chaozhou dish combines the features of Guangdong and Fujian cuisines. Remarkable dishes include Chaozhou Cold Crab and Stewed Shark's fins in soy sauce. Top-end seafood definitely is a great temptation. Savory cuisines of Beijing, Shanghai, Hakka, Sichuan, Yunnan, Hunan and Hangzhou are also indispensable part of this culinary capital.   

 Cantonese Food
The ingredients of Cantonese cuisine are various. The dishes are cooked exquisitely and taste mild but fresh. Among the Cantonese delicacies, seafood dishes are most worth trying. In many seafood restaurants, customers can choose fresh aquatic products by themselves. Those sea foods will be sold by weight of liang (one liang is about 37.8 grams).
