Eating Out in Hong Kong

Eating experiences can make or break a holiday, and food is certainly one of the top reasons to visit Hong Kong. The city is famed for its culinary delights and my advice is to base yourself in Tsim Tsam Tshui if you want international cuisine on Kowloon. Or head to SoHo for international eating on Hong Kong Island. Lan Kwai Fong is another buzzing area of clubs and restaurants.

As always when you travel, to eat well in a city you must eat where the locals eat. There are lots of dim sum places for lunch at Causeway Bay (these are even cheaper before and after lunchtime). Hillwood and Austin Roads also have many excellent eateries, while SoHo is full of chic clubs and restaurants.

I can highly recommend the Sweet Dynasty on Canton Road, a stylish eating hall popular with groups of young people stopping by for dessert on a night out. Try the Asian porridge ‘congee,’ following a savoury dish, all washed down with delectable fresh coconut juice with red bean.
