Foodtrip Bedana’s Filipino Restaurant
Foodtrip Bedana’s Filipino Restaurant is a favourite among the Filipino community in Hong Kong—and for the right reasons. This family-owned restaurant offers a warm atmosphere to its diners, whether they’re regulars or coming for the first time.
But of course, their food offerings are the highlight. You’ll be spoiled for choice with the range here, but favourites include sisig (chopped pork and liver but fish or chicken can be used too, combined with calamansi, onions and chilli pepper), kare-kare (oxtail stew in thick peanut sauce) and the liempo (barbecued pork belly marinated in calamansi soy sauce).
If you’re really hungry, the full-on boodle fight is another experience. This eating style has roots in the military, where different dishes are served with rice on banana leaves. Do it the family way—dig in with your hands for the ultimate experience.
