I lived in HK for several happy years in the 1980s. My interest in its history has been revived by reading two very remarkable books: Martin Booth's "Gweilo" and Barbara Anslow's "Tin Hats and Rice".

Hello.  My 10 year old son is doing an ancestory project at school and is researching Hong Kong 1930 to his grandfather "Bob" was born there in 1937. Bob lived there with his mom, dad and older sister for several years.  They were British.  We have several pictures from 1937/1941 ;but, as the family passed away several years ago, we do not have lots of igeneral nfo.  At this point in my sons project, he would like to know about 1937 Hong Kong food.  He is wondering if the British ate the same diet as the people of Hong Kong.  Or, did the British have their food imported or ???   What would an upper scale restaurant serve in 1937 Hong Kong.   

We have looked online but cant find a basic list of foods.  Or, do you have a website that would help with this!
