6 Days in Hong Kong

ChiTownTraveler | | Mar 10, 2009 09:19 AM

I'm new to this board so apologize if this type of question was already answered somewhere else.

My wife and I will be visiting HK for 6 days at the end of March - and I'm normally the one that plans our dining spots on our trips and am pretty intimidated by my task this time. For a little background I've been to Hong Kong once before when I was much younger and my wife has never been to Asia - we're both Americans who don't speak Mandarin or Cantonese (but I guess i could put pictures on my cell phone - liked that idea from another post!). We def aren't the type to sit in the hotel and eat "western" food - so I'm looking for great local spots. We're staying at the W in Kowloon but don't have a problem traveling around, and are both strong walkers. We're both in our late twenties so would like to lean towards places that are young/trendy I guess is the word for it but also happy to check out traditional offerings or out of the way spots.

We're pretty open to all kinds of food - but probably skip the really adventurous stuff (shark finn, intestines - etc), obv all varieties of local food, love sushi, any other ideas would def be open to exploring - budget is somewhat flexible, not $$$ every meal but open to splurging a couple times if it's worth it

If you need anymore information let me know - thanks so much for any ideas
