Welcome! As a food lover I am fortunate enough to be living in this city known as Hong Kong, where you can find a rich variety of fine restaurants, and because there are so many of them, it is obvious that visitors often face a big challenge, which is how to choose among so many good choices.

On the web there are rich sources about great food in Hong Kong, but those with real local experiences are usually in Chinese, I am not saying that prestigious sources like the Michelin Guide cannot help, but in general I think they are not able to fully reveal the true essence of gourmet experiences in Hong Kong (as evident by articles like this http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/12/02/asia/hong.php and this http://gohongkong.about.com/b/2008/12/05/michelin-guide-hits-hong-kong-and-hong-kong-hits-back.htm), as a local, I do have something to say about the guide's recommendations, and that will be quite a focus for my blog at this time.

But of course, Hong Kong has much to offer other than great food, and I'll try to share that as well, but for the meantime, let me start by sharing some of my views of the restaurants that Michelin Guide recommends.

Since I'll be writing in English, it is also obvious that I intend to share this with friends from other parts of the world. But of course, if you happen to be a local folk, I'll be glad to hear your comments as well.


Thanks for visiting and I hope you'll find something useful here.

Cheers!

Hello! Thank you for your interesting blog. I like reading about food, am sad that I do not speak or read Chinese so can not really order well in restaurants in Hong Kong. I just point at what I think is good and try it. My question: I am normally eating alone (am new to Hong Kong, don't have friends here yet) and usually just my husband and me eating out. What is the best way (aside from dimsum) for 2 people who want to order Chinese food? Any restaurants with set menu you can recommend? Not too expensive please. I also enjoyed your dimsum recommendations. I have tried Maxim's. I have to try the others but always full!

Thanks for visiting my blog, and welcome to Hong Kong!

There are really quite a lot of options in this city, and restaurants are changing their set offerings quite often, I have some good experiences at East Ocean, so perhaps that restaurant is worth trying.

I have written an entry on set lunch there, please check out this one where you can also find links to their web site and address:

By the way, I saw a set that they are offering on their web site, which looks quite attractive, and I may probably try soon:
