Can anyone offer words of advice or warning for an upcoming 3 night trip to Hong Kong? I speak no Cantonese (nor any other Chinese dialect) but do want to try a variety of very good and authentic Cantonese cooking. Most books and other travellers have recommended (in one order or another): Man Wah at the Mandarin Oriental, the Cantonese restaurant at the Regent, Dynasty (in another hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui), and Forum near Causeway Bay (the only one not in a hotel, and aparently the place for abalone).
(Not to worry, by the way; these spots will be counterbalanced with appropriate chow-hound street food sampling and dim sum joint lunches and mid-morning snacks; its just that for dinner, I'd like to have fewer communication problems,a nd mayber even a decent wine list.)
I promise a full report when I return to any who respond with thoughts/observations/suggestions.
