Yat Lok in HKG

My wife and I are going to have an overnight in Hong Kong on Thursday and we're looking for food ideas. Neither one of us reads or speaks Chinese, but we're adventorous. Our flight arrives at 7:45am and we're staying at the Sheraton in Kowloon. We were planning on taking the Airport Express to the K2 bus, so we think we'll be at the hotel around 9:00am. Our flight leaves the next morning at 9:00am to Bangkok.

We'll have been in the air for 20 hours, but are hoping to have caught some sleep and use the adrenaline for the day.

I hate to be a TV follower, but after seeing Yat Lok we are very interested in trying their goose and pig. I know roasted meats are all over the place, but we'd just as soon try this one as any.

Can anyone provide advice on the best way to get there from Kowloon? Are they open for lunch? Will we have problems ordering?

If we can squeeze that in for lunch we'd like recommendations for dinner. Unfortunately, neither of us will have packed anything fancier than a button down shirt, jeans and tennies for me.

We'd also like any recommendations for a nice bar with a view to grab a pre-dinner drink and soak in the skyline. Early weather reports look nice.

We're planning on doing the basic touristy stuff in our limited time, which means the Peak and Star Ferry along with riding atop the double decker trams.

Thanks in advance!
