Have your ever wondered what meal you’d be served if you happened to visit Hong Kong city? Wonder no more because here’s your guide to the best restaurants and eateries in Hong Kong which will leave you wanting to have a second stomach.
1. Mak’s Noodles:
You may have heard of Wantons. But if you haven’t then let us tell you it’s shrimp wrapped delicately in a ravioli pocket and served with chewy egg noodles. Mak’s Noodles serves perhaps the best of these Wantons you’d find in the entire world. Even in Hong Kong, serving up this standard of the food is fast dying and the Kale that is served as a side dish is unbeatable and typically tender.
2. Tim Ho Wan:
Michelin is a well-respected guide on top restaurants around the World, based on a 3-star system of whose only 1 star is more than enough. Tim Ho Wan has the honour of retaining 1 star of Michelin. Hong Kong’s specialty is that, compared to global Michelin restaurants, here the prices are far cheaper with the food being of utmost quality. Experience the best Dim Sum you’d ever taste here in Tim Ho Wan. Be ready to line-up as the place doesn’t book reservations.
Pre dinner snack at @timhowan_sydney Scallop, Chicken & Cuttlefish dumplings and Silky Soy pudding. Finally got around to checking the hype out even though it's a small sample. The dumplings were pretty perfect. Would have liked a wee bit more syrup for the pudding. . . . . . . #dumplings #pudding #soypudding #timhowan #snack #foodreview #Sydneyeats #tastetesting #artofplating #food #foodie #foodaddict #sydneyfoodies #instafood #foodblog #livetoeat #alwayshungry #foodlove #foodcoma #fooddiary #foodgram #foodpics #foodlover #foodblogger #eatsydney #foodtour #sydneyfoodaddicts #foodporn

– 已經好耐無同鮮肉🌚兩個人食餐好🍷🍴。這個宮廷醬烤肉，將五花肉炆到好淋又入味，食落去啖啖油香，連平時不太吃肥豬肉的鮮肉都食到。配上炸饅頭，的確邪惡。而姐的主菜當然不是這個了🌲☘️🌱，遲d介紹。 . . 📍利苑酒家 (銅鑼灣) 銅鑼灣勿地臣街1號時代廣場食通天10樓 . . #食物字典銅鑼灣篇 #食物字典_中式 #與你細味最好 #食通天 #時代廣場 #hongkongtimessquare #hkfoodblogger #hkfoodies #fotd #foodpics #foodstagram #吃貨 #相機食先 #撐枱腳 #銅鑼灣 #手機食先 #foodforum #toofullforfood #太飽喇 #與你細味最好 #利苑銅鑼灣 #leigarden
4. Kam Wah Cafe:
This place serves some of the best pineapple buns in Hong Kong city. The buns don’t contain the fruit itself but is named so due to its shape that resembles a pineapple. Eating one would not be enough for a foodie.
5. Ah Shun’s Kitchen:
Visit this restaurant after boarding a ferry and then navigating the alleyways of Cheung Chau. At first look, you’d be disappointed coming so far to a place without it having so much as a view of the sea. But don’t be fooled by the eye, after all the locals trek all the way to come here, there must be something special about it. This is one of the best restaurants in Hong Kong city, especially if you’re a seafood fan. You can bring your own fish from the market or order from the menu. In any case, you’re in for a feast.
6. Din Tai Fung:
It’s a Taiwanese dim sum chain that is spreading all through Asia, Australia and even California. This is a big venue, so your wait in the line won’t take more than 30 minutes. Utilize that time to decide your order and then get a Michelin level treatment with the respect and courteousness provided by the staff through its service. The restaurant’s focus on the perfect execution of even the tiniest detail is what earns it its hype.
7. Yee Shun Dairy:
Yee Shun is famous for their deliciously smooth milk custard. It is a specialty of their which is popular all over Hong Kong city. They come in a bunch of different flavors and provide the choice of having the custard hot or cold.
8. Australian Dairy Company:
Although the name suggests otherwise but the products in this place have nothing to do with Australia. It’s a very Hong Kong style restaurant with a menu that would be better suited for breakfast. Even the custard served here is preferred by some to be better than that served at Yee Shun.
9. King of Coconut:
If you’re tired of your day’s adventures and want just a drink to freshen you up then the coconut juice served at King of Coconut is definitely worth giving a try. Blended freshly with evaporated milk and coconut, it’s rich and creamy, with a slight buttery taste.
