In Hong Kong for 10 days.... help :)

Heya all,

My wife is going to HK for ten days for business, which means i get to go to HK for ten days for leisure! However, I have never traveled to HK (or any part of Asia) and I am a little intimidated by the language/custom barrier.

While I will be going out to dinner with my wife and her co-workers at night, I will be left to my own devices for probably 7-8 out of the 10 days we are there.

My question is this, I cannot speak or read any Chinese and to be honest I am not really all that familiar with authentic Chinese food. How the hell am I going to order in these restaurants? Are any of the menus in English also? I def am not interested in Americanized food or any sort of McCrappos. I really want to stretch my palate and comfort zone while I am there. How hard is this going to be?
