Dietary requirements in Hong Kong
0

5 posts in this topic

Hi all. We are just starting to plan our trip to Hong Kong. We have two children with dietary requirements so we are hoping to find some help in relation to translation or ideas on where we might be able to eat.

We haven't booked where to stay as yet, but will most likely be around the Disney/Lantau Island area.

Neither child can eat Gluten, Dairy or Egg products.

Is Rice milk readily available?

Are these ingredients understood in Hong Kong?

Any help would be appreciated!!!

Hi Gayle, gluten free food is now more widely available in supermarkets in Hong Kong but the price is quite expensive as compared to those sold in Western countries. Tetra Pak Rice milk is also available in supermarkets (only one or two brands available), however gluten free meal is still not common in local restaurants and wait staff may not even understand the word "gluten. Restaurants in hotels and those serve more foreigners may have gluten free meal available.

Hi, how many days will you stay in HK? I guess it's better to stay in disney maybe just 1 or 2 nights and stay in the city for other nights. It's more convenient for you to move around because disney/lantau is a bit far away from other tourist spots. Would suggest to stay in Tsim Sha Tsui, Central, or Causeway Bay.

Thank you.  We have 7 nights in Hong Kong, and planning to spend 1 maybe 2 of those in Macau.

 

Like bbgirl said, it's more convenient to stay in downtown area. You may come here again and discuss about hotel choices later when you have a more concrete plan. :)
