Better late than never… here is my Hong Kong post! Hong Kong is such a wonderful and exciting place to eat. There is the traditional comforting Chinese food to some innovative flairs. Hong Kong feels like New York City in a tropical environment. It was a thrill to explore. Here are my Hong Kong picks.
I still think about the shrimp wonton noodle soup at Mak’s Noodle. I want it every rainy day or whenever I need something comforting in my belly. I haven’t found the same equivalent with its chewy noodles and clear not too greasy broth even in New York City’s Chinatown.
My preferred dim sum spot is Seventh Son Restaurant (they changed locations so make sure you go to the right one in The Wharney Guang Dong Hotel). Bring friends so you can order more!
And while you check out one of Hong Kong’s many malls, get some dessert. I loved this fresh strawberry, mango, fruit jelly concoction at Honeymoon Dessert in Hysan Place.
My favorite sushi is at Sushi Sase. Fun perk: they let you pick sake cups from an adorable mismatched selection.
The pho place to go is Brass Spoon. I loved the broth, but personally thought the noodles were slightly overcooked. They cook the noodles on a timer so that is how they want them served. The highlights were the appetizers.
Yardbird for yakitori. It’s a trendy and hip place. Super busy so make sure to make a reservation far in advance or prepare to wait.
Let’s talk fancy dinners. This is when you treat yourself. You go to Mott 32 and Duddell’s. They are fantastic.
In Hong Kong, you can have tea in the sky, and crab legs in the streets. It’s a vibrant place.
