I’m bewitched with Hong Kong diversity. Diversity is in everything. One has always a choice: to get lost in narrow small streets or to have a rest in the mountains, enjoying a splendid view of the aspiring city, to meditate in one of the numerous mysterious temples or to wander in a fishing village, which remained almost unchanged since ancient times.

The same is with food. Do you want local and cheap food? Or to have a breakfast as most of the locals do? It’s not a problem. Everything is very tasty and of high quality. Or if you want, you can choose any country on the world map and be sure to find its cuisine in Honk Kong. For example, here’s one of the most popular restaurant with Nordic cuisine.

It’s simply delightful to have something northern in a southern country. Enjoy. It’s very tasty!
