You might be visiting Hong Kong Disneyland to take a spin around the Mat Hatter’s teacups or climb Tarzan’s Treehouse, but you’ll also find plenty of tasty treats to try as well. Whether you want to join Mickey himself for breakfast insider the Enchanted Garden or tuck into cheeseburgers and fries at the straight from the fifties Starliner Diner, Hong Kong Disneyland has some food you won’t want to miss.
Breakfast With the Stars
Never mind what you want to eat, think about who you want to eat with. At the Enchanted Garden restaurant inside Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, you’ll find Mickey, Donald and the rest of the gang stopping by to shake hands and take pictures. Set inside a grand Victorian style conservatory, the grand breakfast buffet is the meal to pick if you can make it here early enough. If not, stop by at lunch to dip strawberries into the milk chocolate fountain.

Mickey Mouse Meringues
The wild west styled Lucky Nugget looks like it stepped straight from the set of your favorite western. You’ll find comfort food, like fish and chips or chicken nuggets, but skip the mains in favor of a sweet tooth hit. The Mickey Mouse Meringues are lollipops molded into the shape of those famous ears with a satisfying crunch and zesty flavor.
Where: Lucky Nugget Saloon, Grizzly Gulch
An American cheeseburger
The best bit of Americana in the park. At the Starliner Diner, you can sit down to a classic cheeseburger inside the chrome-inspired surroundings of a '50s-styled diner. Find rockets and milky way charts on the wall inside this replica spaceport. The burger is the pick on the menu, although the chicken basket and fries runs them a close second.

Coca Cola Slush
Few drinks will quench that Hong Kong humidity thirst more than a Coca-Cola Slush. Take lots of crushed ice and lots of coca cola for the perfect refreshing blend – add another HK$10 and you can have a scoop of ice cream on top.

If you want to try something local, head for the Quasimodo inspired Clopin’s Festival of Food. Here, amidst the regional dishes from across China, you’ll find that classic Hong Kong favorite BBQ pork with rice.

Hong Kong’s favorite food, Dim Sum is small bite-sized snacks, such as Char Siu (fluffy dumplings stuffed with BBQ pork), that can be shared with friends. At the Plaza Inn you can enjoy the full Dim Sum experience inside their grand dining room; try the pan-fried beef and pepper bun or shrimp stuffed dumplings. Make sure you leave space for their juicy mango pudding before you leave.

Hong Kong Egg Custard Tarts
