Food trucks driving into Hong Kong
- Written by arounddb, 3 February 2017
Calling all foodies! Today sees the launch of the government's new Food Truck scheme, which will see 16 food vendors operating at eight different locations across the city.
With space for two vendors at each location, the trucks will move around Hong Kong on a rotation basis, giving HongKongers and tourists the chance to sample a range of speciality Chinese and international dishes.
The first three trucks, that will open for business today, are Book Brothers, offering Asian flavours with a western twist at Wan Chai's Golden Bauhinia Square, Ma Ma's Dumpling Limited at Wong Tai Sin Square, whose specialities include rainbow dumplings, and Pineapple Canteen at Salisbury Garden, Tsim Sha Tsui, where you can enjoy a selection of sweet and savoury pineapple dishes.
More trucks will launch over the coming weeks, spread across Hong Kong Island, the New Territories and even Hong Kong Disneyland (outside the park).
To help customers locate the trucks and keep track of their movements, the Tourism Commission has launched a free app called "HK Food Truck". As well as listing the locations, the app also includes a list of each truck's dishes.
So keep an eye out for the new trucks as they launch. Next up will be Mein by Maureen on February 7 and Ho Yuen Express on February 8, both offering a range of Chinese dishes.
