2 days in Wan Chai with a 2 year old - need recs for dim sum and dinner

kewlly | Jan 25, 2013 07:12 PM

I'll be visiting HK from New York for 2 days to eat on the weekend following CNY (6th and 7th day of the Lunar new year). We'll have our 2 year old with us, but she does well in restaurants as long as she has something good to eat, so I don't think it will be too big of a constraint. That being said, we probably would like to stay around Wan Chai/Central for convenience since there'll be 6 of us (in-laws and sister in law coming too).

I would like to have 2 dim sum lunches on those 2 days and two good Cantonese food dinners, and some good snacks in between.

So far I've got a table at Ming Court and Fu Sing for dimsum (tried LKH but they said they're booked out till April). Ming Court is on the Kowloon side, so am looking for something comparable on the HK Island side. When I went to HK 2 years ago, I went to both Fu Sing and LKH for dimsum and really liked them both, so I'd be happy to get something similar.

For dinners, I'm thinking maybe Lei Garden and Man Wah, but again am looking for suggestions. I took a look at the menus of these fancier places for dinner, and am not that familiar with ordering the more refined Cantonese dishes (there's really no high-end Cantonese food anywhere in the US), so specific classic dish recommendations would be very welcome as well.

For snacks, am thinking of Tai Cheong for egg tarts and Mak's for wonton noodles, maybe Joy Hing for some roasted meats. Would love to hear about anything else that's worth a visit.

Thanks in advance!
