HONG KONG EATING---looking for ideas.... book any ahead of arrival?

Jump to last reply

I would welcome advice from Cicerone, Rkkwan, and from anyone else who knows the local dining scene. I would like to stick to Chinese food with an emphasis on HK style. We will have 5 dinners.

We will be a party of three and none of us has Chinese language skills. My friends are less adventurous than I am, so third floor dives on back streets of with no English-language menus are, unfortunately, not in the cards for this trip.

I have many hours of reading in front of me before I can ask intelligent questions and formulate a list. But I do have some names already and would like opinions on whether or not these are worth seeking out.

I would also like to know more about the hidden kitchens (I have Tim's on my preliminary list ) and about any other eating spots that I should book ahead of my arrival.

FU SING--Wanchai. Do they offer "regular" dinner dishes in addition to dim sum? I understand that they are less hectic at dinner hours than at lunch.

TIM'S KITCHEN--Still great? I would like to have a list of dishes to pre-order. So far I have: Crab claw, beef satay, crystal king prawns, crisp roast baby pigeon. I am afraid the truly exotic is off the list for this trip due to the sensitivities of my dinner companions.

HUTONG--Peking Road, TST. Crispy lamb ribs essential? Window table=great harbor view.

GUANGDONG BBQ RESTAURANT--How is the food and what is the atmosphere like?

MAK'S NOODLES (WELLINGTON STREET, CENTRAL)--Good lunch place?

LOAF ON--Sai Kung Wharf--good for a seafood dinner?

LUNG KING HEEN (FOUR SEASONS)--What is the approximate cost per person, without exotic celebration dishes?

BO INNOVATION--??

PEKING GARDEN--We might like to have one Peking duck dinner...(???) Is one location better than the other(s)?

Please feel free to comment on the above places and to add your own. My friends will want a fairly comfortable atmosphere for dinner, but anything goes at lunchtime.

Also, how late is dim sum served at lunchtime?
Do HK restaurants generally have any sort of dress code? I ask because one of my travel companion favors (gray) tennis shoes/sneakers as footwear.

Many thanks!
