Planning Itinerary for Hong Kong

burp_excuzme | May 2, 2010 02:01 AM

I'm going to Hong Kong for 5 days from Singapore, during May 18-22 with a friend of mine. We're both young college-age females who really go to HK for the pleasure of eating, shopping, and hanging out together since we have not seen each other for years (I'm visiting Singapore from USA).

Since neither of us are familiar with Hong Kong and its cuisine (except for the fact that it has good dim sum and seafood), would someone please help us plan a foodie itinerary? I think we'll most likely be staying in TST, Kowloon. We'd love to do a fair amount of walking (to burn all the food we're gonna eat and work up the appetite!), and stick to good and cheap food that is authentic to Hong Kong. Since we're coming from Singapore, we are not interested in other cuisines like Indian or Thai or Korean, though we do have a bit of a weak spot for Japanese cuisine. Fusion food is fine, too, as long as it has some "Hong Kong" touch to it (whatever that means).

Basically, I am looking for good and cheap dim sum, Cantonese cuisine, seafood, noodles, snacks, street food, etc, though I think we can afford at least 1-2 pricier meals. Any suggestions on where to go and what to do would be much appreciated as well!

Oh, and I HATE hot pot, so none of that please..:-)

Thank you! :)
