Beijing, Shanghai & Hong Kong. What are the essentials?

Hey guys, I'm going to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong in mid August and I really wanted to know what the essential, must try restaurants are. This is my first time in China and I want to leave feeling like I have an understanding of the range and variety of food that China has to offer. I have a few ideas for where i might like to go but really, i feel quite clueless, there's just so much. For Beijing, I was thinking Dadong for Peking Duck and I've been hearing great things about Three Guizhou Men. Has anyone tried Fu Jia Lou or Noodle Loft? I might want to try those out too. For Shanghai, I was thinking Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant for it's xiaolongbao but other than that, i really want to try some traditional Shanghai cuisine, any recommendations? In Hong Kong, i really want the tradional dim sum experience so I was thinking City Hall Maxim's Palace. For an introduction to Cantonese i was thinking Yung Kee. Any recommendations for stalls in the Temple Street Night Market?
Thanks, Danny.
