Recommendations for Taiwan and Hong Kong

Hi all, it's my first time I hope you forgive any faux pas I commit in this post.

Having said that, damage control and all, I was looking to get some ideas for dining out in Hong Kong and Taiwan when I go there in late August. I am quite a frequent visitor of Hong Kong, so I am quite well versed in the general cuisine there, but it seems that I've been revolving around the same couple of restaurants and I'm really looking to try something new this time around. Taiwan, on the other hand, I have only been to once. So any recommendations there would be greatly appreciated. Hole-in-the-wall, non-English speaking establishments are fine as well, as I am fluent in both Cantonese and Mandarin.

There's a catch though, I will be traveling with family. And despite the fact that I am very open to try anything at least once, my parents would be your stereotypical Asians. They have very particular tastes; and wont try anything too 'out there' so to speak.

Money in general is no object, but it'd be nice to have a mix of expensive and cheap. Because cheap sometimes means delicious. We'll be staying in the Langham hotel so nearby establishments would be nice. But I'm pretty sure they wont mind traveling a bit if the food is worth it.

One thing in particular, does anyone know a place to get the Japanese "Kinki" fish? At a reasonable price, because once the bill went up to 3k+ pp and they're still hurting now.

Wow, sorry for the copious amounts of text, I may have rambled on a bit too much. Thanks in advance!
