I just got back from Hong Kong a few days ago! The dimsum at Tim Ho Wan is a must try. They have a few locations - the most convenient one is right below the Airport Express check in counters at Hong Kong Station. The wait can be really long but I went there around 10:30am just before the start of lunch hours and we were seated right away. Their crispy pork buns are the best! I also tried the newly opened CIAK in the Kitchen at  The Landmark, from Chef Umberto Bombana, who has three Michelin stars. Great homemade pastas, and the prices are reasonable.  Yellow Door Kitchen, a private kitchen in the Midlevels, has always been one of my favorites - great spicy Sichuan dishes. Reserve the Shanghai stuffed duck one day in advance. Hong Kong is blessed with amazing harbour views. There are so many bars with great views - try  Sevva on Hong Kong island and  Nanhai No. 1 at  iSQUARE in Kowloon side.

Hey Veronica,

Which type/kind of food are you talking about? The local ones? I mean, a good Chinese food restaurant? Or any good restaurant (then it may be for example a French restaurant?).

Of course Hong Kong is THE place to be to discover a n y  kind of (good) food!

As soon as you arrive there, you have to download a must app that any HongKonger is using: - Best.

Ok, that said... I liked....

Hope it will help...

Cheers and enjoy your stay!

Crystal Jade is a must-try in Hong Kong. They have many locations. Though it doesn't not serve local street food, it provides very good Shanghai cuisine with reasonable price! Many locals queue up for it in dinner time!

Oh gosh where do I start? Hong Kong is a foodie's heaven. I'm not sure of your budget but here are some must-eat (IMHO) restaurants.

1.  RyuGin at floor 101 of the Landmark ICC building (West Kowloon). It's chef Seiji Yamamoto's first restaurant outside of Japan. Each entree is so elegantly prepared it will truly be a culinary experience.

2.  Island Tang for Dim Sum (Galleria in Central). 

3.  The Peninsula Hong Kong for Afternoon Tea and people watching 

4. The bakery at the  Mandarin Oriental - Hong Kong (you can eat there or take it to-go)

5.  Crumbs for frozen Yogurt

6. The lobby lounge at the  Hotel InterContinental for a drink and people watching

7.  Kowloon Shangri-La has a great breakfast buffet (not cheap tho). 

8.  Australia Dairy Company for easy meals aka milk tea, sandwiches. Parkes street in Jordan.

There are so many others it's impossible to name them all, especially without knowing your taste palette and budget. I hope these helps.

Go to Chicha in Central, Peruvian food. The pork mini-burgers are the best I've ever had in my life. Quite pricey though

Sheung Kee at the Happy Valley wet market. It is the old school hawker type of place that sells HK classic dishes with plastic chairs and tables. Ive been living in HK for 6 years it is still one of my favorite places. It is definitely a real local place. I would highly not recommend you to go to the "nice" western restaurants especially if you are coming from the US, western food here tend to be very overpriced and very very average quality.

Don't tell others you have been to Hong Kong if you don't have a try of "Hot Pot Rice" (煲仔飯)! It's a traditional, classic and local Hong Kong food, if I have to name one of the best hot pot rice in Hong Kong, Wing Hop Sing (永合成) should be my choice, its "Beef Hot Pot Rice with Egg" (窩蛋牛肉煲仔飯) is the best in Hong Kong.
