Restaurant recommendations

Its been a good few years since I've been in Hong Kong and I'm itching to get back, especially for the food!  Besides dim sum (I've got my favorite places), any recommendations for anything else across the board?

I've got a few suggestions:

  • Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant: Go to Cheun Kee for point-and-eat seafood in Sai Kung. Superb.
  • Sher Wong Yip: Best snake soup on Earth. Really fun.
  • The Peninsula Hong Kong: The Peking-style chicken at the restaurant is insane.
  • Mak's Noodle: Go here for the shrimp dumpling.
  • Manor Seafood Restaurant 富瑤酒家: A must for dry-tossed soy sauce noodle (chefs have to practice for several years before being allowed to make it for a customer). Also try their amazing gold coins.
  • Kau Kee Restaurant 九記牛腩: If I had one meal in all of Hong Kong it would be at Kau Kee. All they serve is braised beef over noodles for a few dollars a bowl. I usually eat two or three at a sitting (small portion) but it's 100-years old and my favorite place in town and it will BLOW your mind. will change how you think about simplicity forever. Every chef I send there goes back again while there so try to stop there on one of your first days in town. It's a life changer.

These places are great:

  • Long Kee Noodle Shop: The dying art of the perfect noodle
  • Tung Po: a super casual and shockingly brilliant place in a food court situated over the North Point market. Hectic and crazy good.
  • Tim Ho Wan, The Dim-sum Specialists: the unbelievably inexpensive Michelin starred new dim sum place that everybody is talking about. Arrive early and be prepared to wait on line. First come first served.
  • Joy Hing Roasted Meat: Roast pork, duck and goose

And if you need a place to stay, check out The Peninsula Hong Kong.  It's wildly expensive, but it's also old school luxury and a grand Hong Kong institution. Treat yourself.

My picks go to these, the best in HK:

Japanese Ramen : Yokozuna Japanese Noodle Shop - Yau Ma Tei - Definitely the best ramen outside Japan! 

Dimsum : Ding Dim 1968 #1 Dimsum shop on TripAdvisor! 

Recommended : Hargow, Siumai with black truffle, ChaSiuBao, XiaoLongBao, SpringRolls

Korean BBQ : Won Pung Won Korean Restaurant on Prat Avenue across from Butterfly Hotel (Do not mistaken this with PungWon!) 

Recommended : Samgyupsal (Pork Belly), Seafood Pancake, Galbi Tang (Beef ribs soup), ChopChea (Stir Fried potato noodles)

You could go to Australia Dairy Company, they're famed for their scrambled eggs toast. Something so simple but yet so delicious! Go there early in the morning as queues are usually very long. It's a traditional cha chan teng (hong kong cafe), it's rather packed inside, food is served really fast and everyone there just chows it down and leave. 

Try the steamed milk pudding from Yee Shun Dairy Company. Silky smooth milk pudding that is eaten as a dessert. They've got lots of varieties of milk pudding served cold/hot  and with chocolate, ginger, red bean etc flavors. Hot steamed milk pudding is usually the original or traditional flavor. Warms up the tummy on cold days :)

Hong Kong is also a great place for international fare. Try Mana! Fast Slow Food for organic, raw, healthy and delicious fast food (It will make you wonder why this not the norm in fast's almost 2015). Chicha Peruvian Restaurant is the best for a change of seafood favors and has a fantastic bar. Lily & Bloom is a NY like steakhouse with great food, bestest drinks and über-cool crowds. If you are on a liquid diet go to Angel's Share Whisky Bar & Restaurant to sample the best whisky there is.
