I'll be visiting HK by myself in two weeks. I'll be having 6 dinners and 5 lunches though one lunch (and perhaps a dinner) will be in Macau. My tastes might be a little weird, I don't like seafood especially shellfish. I plan to mostly eat on the cheap (<80) and maybe have one or two more expensive meals (<300)
I haven't figured out the order yet, but after reading through lots of threads on here and searching through openrice I'm thinking of visiting the following:
- Din Tai Fung or 上海飽餃店 for some Xiao Long Bao. I've tried DTF in Singapore and US before though.
- Yu for some SiChuan noodles
- Ming Court and Tim Ho Wan for DimSum (Char Siu Bao, Cheong Fun, Water chestnut cake, etc). I prefer Traditional Dim Sum. I only speak Mandarin (and English) so I prob won't be able to fight for me food very well.
- Spring Deer for some Peking Duck
- Joy Hing and Fuk Kee for BBQ (Roast Pork, Goose, Crispy Pork)
Beef Chow Fun is prob my favorite dish but I haven't had much luck finding recommendations.
I get breakfast at the hotel, but I might want to go out for some Yo Tiao. Is that common in HK or more of a Beijing thing? Actually, I like the kind where the Yo Tiao is wrapped in a crepe, I can never find anywhere that makes that anymore.
I'll be staying at the Holiday Inn SoHo. Are there any good dessert places withing walking distance? Like Dohua, Soups like red bean soup, sesame. I'll also prob try to find some place close for dinner my first night as I'll probably be pretty tired after a long flight.
I'd appreciate any comments/recommendations/warnings. Any must-visit restaurants I'm missing?
