Hong Kong Experience
The Flying Pan. Nix that looming hangover with a greasy fry-up before you hit the sack. The Flying Pan is a popular 24-hour breakfast diner, equally busy at 3 am and 3 pm on weekends. Eggs any style come with your two picks from a huge list of sides including grits, blintzes, baked beans, and fruit salad. The truly greedy can order a Kitchen Sink, which is a taste of everything. Ground fl., 9 Old Bailey St., Central, Hong Kong. 2140–6333. www.the-flying-pan.com. 3rd fl., 81–85 Lockhart Rd., Wan Chai. 2528–9997.
Hay Hay Kitchen. A brightly lit oasis on Lockhart Road, this busy restaurant serves fast Cantonese food, similar to Tsui Wah. Hay Hay is best known for its Hong Kong–style noodles and rice plates. The char siu hor fun (barbecue pork noodles in soup) is a popular late-night dish. Pay at the cashier on your way out. Hay Wah Bldg., 72–86 Lockhart Rd., Wan Chai, Hong Kong. 2143–6183. Closes 4 am.
Tsui Wah. While locals head to Tsui Wah, a large, three-story Chinese restaurant, at any time of the day, the late-night crowds are the happiest. Service is quick and there's a huge menu of typical Chinese fare such as fried rice and noodles as well as western dishes such as steak and pasta. It's noisy and bright, but the crowds just keep on coming. You may even find the odd celebrity chowing down on beef brisket noodles at 2 am. 15–19 Wellington St., Central, Hong Kong. 2525–6338. www.tsuiwah.com. Central.
