Week in Hong Kong - can you give a single female diner advice?

KatherineZ | Feb 6, 201209:24 AM

I'm tagging along on a trip to Hong Kong next week, and will be wandering the city solo for nearly all of it. We'll have 6 days in town. Staying at the Mandarin Oriental. Since its my first time in HK, I'm planning to hit the main tourist sites hard the first few days, then spend the rest of the time wandering off-the-beaten track for fun.

And I want to eat well! But I am not sure how a single girl dining is going to fly over there.

Can you guys give me some advice? I've read through many of the HK threads on the board already, and it sounds like there are abundant choices, and especially fabulous ones if you have a small group and can pre-arrange things with the chef. But which are best for me?

- I'm alone
- I'm an adventurous eater
- I'm not highly familiar with the local cuisine (eg I'm new to Chinese food and might not "get" some of the more sophisticated dishes)
- I don't speak or read the language

I'll get 1-2 dinners with my husband, so tell me how best to use them!

So far, I've got on my list: Tim's Kitchen, The Manor, Temple Street seafood stalls, Tai Wai's ' Fung Lum, She Wong Yee at Causeway Bay, Celebrity Cuisine....

Thanks for any advice - this board is great.
