What food/food experience does Hong Kong do better than any other city?

I am curious...

For those on this board who have lived and eaten in other major world cities (Paris, NYC, Tokyo, London, Rome, Mexico City, etc.) what food/food experience have you had in HK that far surpasses the same in other cities?

Where does HK stand head and shoulders above the rest?

After 20 months in HK, I would say that the preparation and presentation of *pork* is a high art here. The meat itself is more delicious. The myriad uses -- pork intestine, windpipe, lungs, kidney, lard-based pastries, etc, etc -- are dazzling. The skill with which it is prepared is awe-inspiring. The pork I've eaten in HK will most certainly be the standard to which I compare all pork in the future.

So, where do you think HK outshines other cosmopolitan cities gastronomically? Seafood, duck/goose, noodles, dim sum, etc.

What should world-class foodies travel to HK to experience?
