TLC travels around Hong Kong this September to uncover the very best of a particular type of food – from star eats to street eats and style eats. A Taste of Hong Kong is about local chef and foodie extraordinaire Christian Yang who loves everything about his city, especially its one-of-a-kind food culture. Christian invites professional globetrotter Ian Wright to Hong Kong to lend a helping hand. As Ian has seen (and eaten) practically anything and everything across Asia and the world, his expert palette is just what Christian needs to narrow down his search.
Manila will be jumping in to join the fun as show hosts Christian and Ian is set to visit the Philippines for a meet-and-greet with the press and fans this September! The event is set to bring to life the sights, smells, and culinary flavors of their adventures. A Taste of Hong Kong is set to air on September 22 on TLC.
