You must have dim sum and noodles.
Great dim sum can be had at:
1) Tim Ho Wan
Shop 8, Tai Yuen Mansion Phase 2, 2-20 Kwong Wa Street, Mong Kok
Remarks: The dim sum here is cheap and good (the chef was formerly from a three-starred restaurant). Go very early though (start queuing at 8.30am)
2) Fu Sing Shark Fin Restaurant
1F Sunshine Plaza, 353 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai
Remarks: Great dim sum, and quite possibly the best char siu (roast pork) in Hong Kong.
Noodles can be found all over, but some of my favourites are:
1) Tsim Chai Kee
98 Wellington Street, Central
Remarks: The wontons are enormous.
2) Law Fu Kee
140 Des Voeux Road, Central
144 Queen's Road, Central
50 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central
Remarks: Lots of branches to choose from. Try the beef brisket noodles or the congee.
You can also try some of the baked egg tarts at Tai Cheong Bakery (35 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central) or the milk puddings at Yee Shun Milk Company (506 Lockhart Street, Causeway Bay).

1. Xiao Long Bao and other dim sum treats at Din Tai Fung, Silvercord, Canton Road, TST and Causeway Bay branches
2. Roast goose at Yung Kee Restaurant, Wellington St., Central;
3. Hutong Restaurant, 28/F, One Peking Road, TST - fine cuisine and great views of Victoria Harbor
4. T'ang Court, Langham Hotel, Peking Road, TST - among the best Cantonese restaurants in HKG, a bit pricey but definitely worth the expense
Note that there are a lot of great restaurants in Hong Kong. They range from elegant to hole- in-the-wall types. Part of the true HKG experience is experimentation and discovery. Happy dining! almost 7 years ago
If you love seafood, then you must not leave Hong Kong without trying this place:
Choi Kee Fried Crab Expert, G/F 8-10 Marsh Road, Wan Chai (852) 2891 5647, (852) 2891 7452
This looks like a hole-in-the-wall establishment, but is frequented by bankers and business people. Don't be turned off by the simple and unattractive furnishings. Affordable and delicious cuisine. Try the mantis and crab. Other seafood specialties too. Ask the gracious server-owners for suggestions. Don't miss out. It's best to phone ahead to reserve a table. They don't have that many on the premises. Enjoy! almost 7 years ago
