Tsim Sha Tsui's Culinary Tapestry

Hong Kong

Tsim Sha Tsui's culinary scene promises a quintessential feel of the Hong Kong culture: raw, vibrant, and diverse. As street lamps and storefronts light up the streets, restaurants dotting the sidewalks burst with life as varied as the food they offer. Both locals and tourists are treated to a host of dining options on this side of the Victoria Harbour, from local flavors to international delights. Whatever your fancy (and budget), this popular district will always have one food joint to hit the spot. Take a moment to explore what the area has to offer; you’ll realize that food culture is never more alive than it is here.

Chuk Yuen Seafood Restaurant


Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • 29 May 2018

What greets you at the entrance of Chuk Yuen Seafood in Tsim Sha Tsui—one of the three branches in the city—is a nondescript storefront featuring a humble host stand, tanks of live seafood, and styrofoam boxes. Prepare to be overwhelmed as you walk through its basement: a huge dining area devoid of all pretensions, with large tables fit for a feast with your loved ones.

ATUM Desserant (Tsim Sha Tsui)

Hong Kong, China, People's Republic • Recommendation • 29 May 2018

This delightful spot is where dessert goes to play. In contrast with the white marble bar, the dishes are a wildfire of color and texture. Take a break from the usual Egg Tarts and Sweet Red Bean Soups: molecular gastronomy takes center stage here—and the food is nothing short of edible artwork. Apart from Tsim Sha Tsui, you can also try ATUM's sweet treats at their other location in Causeway Bay.

Enter through a Chinese Lunar Gate to Hutong, where low ceilings and long hanging red lanterns emit a faint crimson glow.
