Hong Kong food names

lmbgm | Mar 26, 2014 07:22 PM

I'm heading to hong kong for the first time in mid april for 5 days. I've been reading through this forum as well as open rice, however I wanted to verify the correct spelling of some of the dishes in hong kong as the names vary. Ofcourse I want to try lots of local cuisine but I want to make sure to try my favorites. I looked up the chinese names to help with identification

Beef Chow Fun 干炒牛河
Xiao Long Bao 小笼包
Char Siu Bao 叉烧包
Peking Duck (with the pancakes)
炸兩 Not sure the english word, rice noodle wrapped youtiao
cheong fun 豬腸粉
Ja Jiang Mien 炸酱面
crispy roasted pork 燒肉
egg tart
Sichuan noodles
red bean soup

I think much of this is dim sum food.
I've found lots of tips on this forum already, but feel free to list your recommendations. I think beef chow fun is the only one I haven't found much of.
