It’s known that Hong Kong is a food-obsessed paradise with many dishes to explore. Known for its melting pot of Chinese, European, Japanese and Korean cultures, the city has seen street food flourish.

Packed with great cooking tips along the way, Dan’s fast-moving series has the home cook firmly in mind as he hits the streets and beyond!

Host, Dan Hong said:

“Running a few Chinese restaurants in Australia, Hong Kong has long been a big inspiration, and whenever I got the chance to go, I mostly went to restaurants on the central side specialising in fine Cantonese cooking.

For this series I decided to take a different turn, discovering the old school institutions that have a rich and long history specialising in singular dishes which most are unfortunately a dying art with nobody in the next generation to continue the tradition.

Not only did I learn about how they started and continued their businesses to this very day, I also saw the lifelong dedication and heart they put into their craft.

From pigs roasting in an underground woodfired oven, to wonton noodles and one of the very last handmade fish ball factories, this culinary trip was really lifechanging for me and I can’t wait to show you.”

SBS Head of Food and Entertainment, Emily Griggs said:

“SBS Food is excited to welcome back Dan Hong, whose magical flair for flavour brings culinary traditions to life in The Streets Hong Kong. Unlocking the secrets behind beloved street foods, Dan guides audiences to discover that they too can recreate these amazing dishes at home.

Get ready to hit the streets with Dan Hong and explore the vibrant tastes of Hong Kong.”

Join Dan on an unforgettable adventure travelling through the streets of Hong Kong, with this fast-moving series exploring the incredible flavours and stories street food has to offer.
