There are few things better than a food trail, and our stand is that you haven’t truly experienced a country in all it’s glory if you haven’t tried its food. Our editor-in-chief Adele Chan has herself covered all these places within 24 hours, so this trail has been tried and tested!
Before we delve into everything though, be sure to check out our video on the Hong Kong food trail for an exciting sneak peak.
So get ready for this food trail, limited only by your appetite. As they say in Hong Kong, sihk faahn! (Have a nice meal!)
Or, in this case, have many nice meals, and an ultimate cheat day.

Oddies is a dessert shop in Central known for their Italian gelato, served alongside crisp, golden egg waffles (eggettes). Think creamy, rich ice-cream next to the fragrant crunch of eggettes for a blend of textures. This dessert shop was set up by a chef who graduated from the world famous French Le Cordon Bleu Cooking School.
The shop also offers a selection of 12 gelato flavours and various toppings for a satisfying dessert fix. Also, this sweet treat uses low-fat gelato, so maybe having seconds is not a bad idea after all.
