The places mentioned above are good, especially Tim Ho Wan. Also check out Crystal Jade - especially the one at the IFC above the Airport Express Hong Kong Station check-in desks - and Din Tai Fung - which has restaurants all over the world. over 8 years ago
If you don't want to get on a boat, at least get on a bus (or take a taxi) to Shek O. Find a quiet place to stay there and enjoy the beach and the local restaurants. It's rustic but not too remote, there are no tall buildings in sight, the beach and scenery are beautiful, and there are lots of lovely hikes you can take. And if you need to get back to the city quickly, it's only a 30 minute bus ride (even faster in a taxi). over 8 years ago
