Food prices in Hong Kong at the supermarket

Pursuing to previous post about China, I decided to make another similar post, but aboutprices in Hong Kong, so that you can pre-ask the price of food in the supermarket. As you know, Hong Kong is not cheap at all, and not everyone can afford to eat constantly in cafes. Yes, there are inexpensive cafes there, but they need to be sought out, and there will be some noodles. And, for example, we bought a large piece of pizza (but not the whole pizza) once in the city center for 100 HKD. At the time of publication of the article - this is 750 rubles (1 HKD = 7.5 rubles). Not weak, huh?

Therefore, in my opinion, in Hong Kong it is very important rent an apartment with a kitchen and cook by yourself.

Prices in Hong Kong for food in the supermarket

Everything is good in terms of self-cooking, yesIn Hong Kong, the problem is to find a supermarket. Well, the way we are used to. We lived near the subway station Wan Chai (almost the very center) and there was nothing near 7-11. I tried to search through Google Maps, searched the forums, and according to this information there were literally 1-2 shops around us, but their assortment left much to be desired, rather, it is an expanded version 7-11, not a supermarket, we could not even buy rice. It is usually advised to look for a Wellcome or ParkNShop, but we accidentally found another supermarket - Kai Bo Food (10 minutes from our apartment), and bought it there.

Unlike Hainan, there is a choice"European" food. Although again I did not see the diversity of bakery products, cheeses, dairy products. Maybe there are big supermarkets and everything is in them, but next to us there was nothing big. But it's great that a lot of things are signed in English.

P.S. By the way, everything is sold on the market not only individually, but also by weight, only another measure is used - pound (pounds), and not kilograms (1 pound = 0.45 kg). Not very comfortable.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
