Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok airport food questions 2012

Can departing ticketed passengers bring food and beverage past customs, and are food (e.g. roasties bbq/deli rice box) and a takeout drink cup allowed to be brought onto a plane (to be consumed on the plane)?

If yes, what are some Terminal 1 restaurants that can serve some sort of food that will survive a few hours on board the flight? The bottled milk tea from Tsui Wah seems to be an ideal size. Too bad Ah Hung's Delicacies is in Terminal 2, not sure if I can make it over there or way out of reach.

  1. Yes, you can bring food (but not drinks larger than 100ml) past customs. Maxim's "Airplane takeaway roast goose" being an example: (You pick up your pre-ordered boxed whole roast goose at the MX in the arrivals hall before your flight.


    I like to buy snacks from the Muji in the departure hall before my flight, but not hot or wet food that might leak. I sometimes make a pit-stop at the food court past customs, which has a decent (if pricey) selection for airport food (Cafe de Coral, Tsui Wah, tonkatsu rice, Aji ichiban ramen, etc.). The places in food court will offer takeout.
