Free Weekend in Hong Kong - your favorite restaurants?

Staying at the Kowloon Shangri-La, but open to anything. What are your favorite restaurants? I'm interested in a really nice meal as well as your favorite snack places.

If money is no object and you want French, I can recommend Amber in the Landmark Mandarin Oriental in Central.

Tempting, especially the tasting menu with wine pairings

I'm following along. Will be there in March on a work trip - looking for a list of the must-try places.

Giando is on my hit list to go there again and again. I love its seafood pasta and want to taste it during my next trip. I must say guys, It is really awesome.

Interesting that in all my queries (here and elsewhere) I've gotten French and Italian recommendations! Come on friends, how about your favorite dim sum? Any Hong Kong favorites that utilize great local ingredients? I live on fish.

We had a lovely mid-day meal at Spring Moon in the Pen.

I agree, unlikely that French or Italian are happening for us in HK. Below is a recent list from Chowhound with dim sum and Shanghainese places. A few friends' recs are on the list. Din Tai Fung (for soup dumplings) is a must-go for us because there's a US branch near here in Monterey Park (east of LA), with the most amazing dumplings ever. On this list was a rec for a restaurant with snake soup and air dried duck liver, which I deleted. Hope some of you will weigh in about these places.

Dim Sum and Cantonese: Seventh Son, Fook Lam Moon, Forum, Ye Tung Hin, Fu Sing

Shanghainese: Snow Garden, Din Tai Fung. Lau

Ho Hung Kee: Won ton noodles and 'Gone Chau Ngau Ho aka stirred fried rice noodle with beef.
