The Top 5 Places to Eat in Hong Kong

Dining in Hong Kong really has become quite impressive over the years.

The Top 5 Places to Eat in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a melting pot of cultures and home to a huge expat population from a huge number of different countries. Thanks to its great diversity, fine dining in Hong Kong really has become quite impressive over the years, with several of the world's greatest chefs and culinary experts setting up shop in Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.

Between a huge number of options and an extremely efficient public transport service taking you where you need to be with minimal fuss, the sheer level of choice available to you can be a little daunting at first. In order to make things as simple as possible, we've had a look at the top five places to eat in Hong Kong, as voted by our staff in our Hong Kong office.

These five restaurants are places you simply have to try when moving to Hong Kong.

1. The Best Place for a Michelin Menu

If you're looking for exceptional food in the Fragrant Harbour, the Mandarin Grill + Bar is the way to go. While it isn't the only place with a Michelin Star in Hong Kong, it certainly offers the widest variety on its menu. With fresh organic ingredients and seasonal produce all adding flavour to some truly impressive recipes, this bar & grill offers a unique interpretation of the classic bar & grill favourites.
 
The service and atmosphere at the Mandarin Grill + Bar are both second to none; it's conveniently located too, sitting right across from Hong Kong City Hall. This makes it a fantastic destination, both for business meetings and the occasional special meal such as a birthday or anniversary.

2. The Best Place for Dim Sum

Dim sum is a small steamed or fried Chinese dumpling, and is completely inseparable from Hong Kong. These incredible little dumplings come with a range of different fillings, and can either be enjoyed on the go or while sitting down at your favourite local restaurant.

If you're looking to try some dim sum in style, Tim Ho's is the way to go. Tim Ho Wan, as it's officially called, is the place to go if you're looking to try the very best dim sum at the lowest possible price. How do we know this? Because Tim Ho's is one of the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurants in the world, and on top of this, they're self-styled dim sum specialists. If you want to try real Hong Kongese food in Hong Kong, go to Tim Ho's.

3. The Best Place for Tea

If you want to try proper tea in Hong Kong you need to do to a cha chaan teng, or a tea restaurant in English. These inexpensive restaurants are a great place not only for a relaxing cup of tea, but for a bite to eat from what can be at times, a bit of an eclectic menu.

If you want the best cha chaan tengs in Hong Kong, there are a few you can try, including Tsui Wah in Central. Whether you're looking for a bowl of noodles, some toast, luncheon meat or even a fried egg, you'll find your comfort food over at Tsui Wah. Be warned though, their peanut butter and condensed milk toast is not for the faint-hearted and should only be attempted by people with a serious sweet tooth.

4. The Best Place for Noodles

No matter where you go in the world, food will be cooked and prepared differently. A slice of pizza in Boston and a slice of pizza in Sicily are not one and the same. Despite being significantly closer, the same is true of Cantonese and Hong Kongese food. Noodles in particular tend to be more seafood-based, with milder flavours to suit.
 
If you're looking for the best wonton noodles in all of Hong Kong, you have your work cut out for you. If you don't have the time (or ability) to sample each and every noodle shop around, make sure you take the time to stop by Mak's Noodles. While Mak's may be one of the more expensive noodle shops in Hong Kong, it's also one of the best. There's a very good chance you'll love what you'll find. Mak's is famous for its bite-sized wontons and its smaller serving size which prevents the noodles from going soggy in the broth. There are 5 Mak's in Hong Kong, though main branch can be found in Central.

5. The Best Place for Dining with a View

Take a look at Hong Kong's skyline and you'll quickly see that a lot of it goes upwards. There are several places in Hong Kong where you can go dine in style, looking down on the harbours, ships and people below. Tin Lung Heen on the 102nd floor of the Ritz-Carlton in West Kowloon offers one of the highest views while providing some exquisite Cantonese food for you to enjoy.
 
If you're looking for foreign food with a view, the Café Grey Deluxe is well known for its excellent food, service & atmosphere. It even win a TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Award for just this back in 2015. Sitting on the 49th floor of a hotel in the Admiralty area, it offers some a truly stunning view of the Victoria Harbour and a menu to match.
