    Follow the (Local) Crowd


    I don't often advise people to follow the crowd, except when it comes to dining. I strongly belief the proof is in the pudding, or in the case of restaurants, the number of diners present. When traveling to a different city or country, I stick with my follow the crowd rule but look to make sure the crowd is local. Following the locals is when you find some of the best food and most authentic experiences.


    Upon arriving solo in Hong Kong on a late Wednesday night, I dropped my bag off at my hotel and went in search of some food. With some general guidance from the hotel concierge, I wandered down to Jardine's Bazaar, where I spotted a restaurant overflowing with locals. I slipped into the line and soon found myself seated with a steaming bowl of shu mai noodles, the perfect start to my culinary adventures in Hong Kong.
