    $$ | Wan Chai

    Chef Adam Cliff made his name at Chachawan in Sheung Wan before opening this, his very own, Thai noodle shop on a historic Wan Chai street. You can spot the open-air restaurant from a mile away, due to the nonstop line out the door—the wait is worth it for Cliff's fresh and flavorful Thai boat noodles, pad Thai, pomelo salads, crab omelettes, and lots of street-style classics.

  • 12. The Chairman

    $$ | Central

    The restaurant celebrates a return to authentic Cantonese fare. Using only the freshest possible ingredients—from locally reared free-range chicken to wild-caught seafood—this unique eatery focuses on the intrinsic flavors of each ingredient. Appetizers are creative: shredded pig’s ear and tripe salad is given an extra crunchy edge with the addition of freshly sliced guava, and razor clams are steamed with pickled lemon and garlic. And it gets even better with the mains. A particular favorite is the signature soy-sauce chicken, perfumed with 18 different fragrant Chinese herbs. Also recommended is the steamed fresh crab, which is steeped in aged ShaoXing wine.

    $$$ | Central

    Premium ingredients, traditional recipes, elegant interiors . . . there's a reason The Chairman is often booked out weeks in advance.

    $ | Mong Kok

    This award-winning eatery serves some of the city’s best dim sum. Opened by a former Four Seasons Hotel chef, this humble spot makes all of its shrimp dumplings, rice rolls, and baked cha siu buns fresh to order. It’s top-quality food at dirt-cheap prices. It's as popular as ever, so go in midafternoon if you want to beat the crowds.

  • 15. Tim's Kitchen

    $$$ | Western

    Some of the homespun dishes at this restaurant require at least a day’s advance notice and can be pricey, but the extra fuss is worth it. Simpler (and cheaper) options are also available, such as pomelo skin sprinkled with shrimp roe or panfried flat rice noodles.

  • 16. Tung Po

    $$ | Eastern

    Arguably Hong Kong's most famous—if not most perpetually packed—indoor dai pai dong has communal tables large enough to fit 18 guests and walls scribbled with an ever-growing list of specials. The food is Hong Kong cuisine with fusion innovations, and you should wash everything down with a cold beer (served here in Chinese soup bowls).

    2880–5224

    Known For

    • Spaghetti with cuttlefish and fresh squid ink

  • 17. Vasco

    $$$$ | Central

    This gorgeous restaurant is truly the full package. For starters, the space is gorgeous—cool, classy, and intimate at the same time. More important, though, is that Vasco serves truly inspired Spanish cuisine with global influences. The red Palamos prawns and sea urchin is a standout, as is the incredibly tender roast pigeon, which is balanced by tart apple cream. For dessert, a combination of rice and cardamom rounds off the meal perfectly. Our recommendation is to go for the chef 's tasting menu, which offers the crème de la crème that the restaurant has to offer. If you’re looking for something less formal, head to Vasco’s sister restaurant, Isono, one floor below.

    35 Aberdeen St., Hong Kong, n/a Hong Kong, Hong Kong
    2156–0888
  • 18. Yau Yuan Xiao Jui

Japanese-style soufflé pancakes are another house specialty. These fluffy stacks are served with toppings such as fresh strawberries, chocolate shavings, and whipped cream. Sweets aside, 100 Bites also offers pasta-based lunch sets and a tasting menu for dinner.

    2191–6638
  • 20. 22 Ships

    $$$ | Wan Chai

    Enjoy a fun, communal dining experience at this buzzing tapas bar opened by celebrated chef Jason Atherton. Expect a creative and contemporary menu with to-share dishes from Ibérico pork and foie gras miniburgers to toasted bread filled with ham, truffles, and melty manchego cheese. Be sure to arrive early, since the restaurant only seats 38 people around the open kitchen and by the windows. Fortunately, you can always take advantage of the fantastic sherries and sangrias while you wait for a seat outside.
