The Cultural Gallery
Founded by Wing Wah Cake Shop Limited, Tasting Hong Kong is located at Yau Ma Tei of Kowloon Peninsula, right next to the famous tourist spot "Temple Street." Since the 1950s, Wing Wah Corporation has been promoting traditional Hong Kong delicacies to overseas travellers. To keep up with the corporate spirit and its objectives, Tasting Hong Kong was born out of a new operation model in the industry, in which Wing Wah cooperates with travel agencies of inbound and local tours to promote this new attraction of local pastries, puddings, cakes and daily snacks. We offer multilingual guides presenting the dining history, culture and anecdotes in the gallery, just as if you were back to the old Hong Kong. We offer cake-making and tea-making demonstrations onsite and you will find it enjoyable taking photos in front of the Hong Kong landmarks illustration wall.
