HELP - Foodie friends from San Francisco are visiting me in one month & I just moved here this week!

Hi there,

I am a San Francisco CH'er, and I have just moved to Hong Kong this month. I am trying to get up to speed on the food scene b/c our first guests arrive in early September. They are BIG TIME foodies, so want to take them to some tasty places both high end and hole in the walls. They are here for 4 full days of meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)

I am planning on taking them to the following places based upon the posts I have read:

Bo Innovation: they are big fans of COI in SF and Alinea in Chicago - Bo sounded to be of the same ilk
Fu Sing: sounded like a good place for dim sum given all the positive posts I have seen
Yin Yang: how hard is it to get a reservation? Also - any thoughts on if it is worth going? I saw some early positive reports, but have not seen any recent posts. Also - does anyone know of some other good "secret kitchens?"
Lei Garden: sounds like a good place for them to try true Cantonese cuisine
Tai Cheong: for the egg custard tarts
Tim Ho Wan: dim sum
Lung King Heen: dinner

Any misses on my list? Also - any other recommendations of "must-try" places.

Appreciate all the help!
