Any trip to Hong Kong would not be complete without having a meal (or should we say every meal?) in one of their many cha chaan tengs, snacking on a couple of Hong Kong egg tarts in one seating and slurping up some Hong Kong-style milk teas to end your day on a sweet note.
Even though that the service is definitely not the best around, Hong Kong still remains as one of the best food destinations in Asia. Thankfully for us, there are quite a number of iconic Hong Kong restaurants that opened in Singapore over the past few years.
Forget about the 4-hour flight to Hong Kong, here are 7 Hong Kong food concepts in Singapore that will gau dim any lingering HK food cravings.

The convenience store opened in 1851 on 32 Mott Street during a fundamental time where the Chinese first migrated to New York.

The famous London dining concept Burger & Lobster is finally opening in Singapore on 20 May 2019 with its first outlet at Jewel Changi Airport.
This isn’t the restaurant chain’s first outlet in Asia—there’s one at Genting Highlands and another in Bangkok—but we are glad that there is no need to cross the borders anymore if we want to have a taste of their iconic grilled lobster and lobster roll.
Burger & Lobster Singapore will be located at the Canopy Park on Jewel’s topmost level. Changi Airport has just announced that Jewel Changi Airport will be opening on 17 April 2019, but the Canopy Park will be open to the public only in the middle of the year.
