Bet you didn’t know about this little gem. Step away from the towering hotels in the city and head to the Tai O fishing village in Lantau for a secluded ‘Taste of Tai O’ afternoon tea. The Tai O Heritage Hotel goes back to 1902, when it served as a police station to guard the shore.  Enjoy a marvellous view of the South China Sea and the tranquil fishing village at the Tai O Lookout, the hotel’s glass-roofed restaurant, while sampling the house-made pork patty with salty fish burger, crispy chicken wings, and shrimp toast with salty egg yolk paste, plus panna cotta, the brownie, and churros with mountain begonia sauce inspired by their locally renowned signature Mountain Begonia cheesecake.

When: 2:30pm to 5pm (Saturday, Sunday, and Public Holidays)
Where: Tai O Heritage Hotel, Shek Tsai Po St, Tai O, Lantau Island
Cost: HK$328 for two
