"Food Paradise HK!" Hong Kong Island Restaurant Tip by jpki
Hong Kong Island Restaurants: 15 reviews and 20 photos
This is one of the reason that I love Hong Kong. The restaurants are amazing if you know how to find them. Let's started form the local cheap to International expensive!
In Kowloon local usually goto Mongkok center (take the metro to Mongkok station exit E2). The most busy place in Kowloon for shopping and dinning. All small restaurants around there with cheap price. Whatever you walk in any, they all good and cheap except in the Hotel or big shopping mall. You can try the Won ton noodle, congee, Taiwanese...etc. Otherwise just goto Tsim Sha Taui, all the restaurants are little bit more pricey but not too bad except you goto the hotel restaurant or the Harbour city shopping mall or the restaurants have a good view of Victoria harbour!
Still cannot find anything you like then you can take HK$2.2 Ferry at Tsim Sha Taui Star Ferry goto Cantral! The New Pier in Hong Kong Island Central next to the IFC where is the most lesuires shoping centre. For sure, most of the western cuisine Restaurants there have a excellent good view of Vistoria harbour at night and the price will be Expensive but still full house most of the time, so better make a reservation. Therefore, if you not concern price, then you should get a table next to the windowe side around 20:00 because you can also see the Laser Show from the buildings along the harbour!
Meanwhile, if you are not very interested the laser show or any Victoria harbour view. I will recommand you goto Soho. You can take the Green mini bus no.22 HK$8.5 at the pier go there (you can asked the driver remind you to get of at the Soho). Soho where is the place for all the European Cuisine with good wine. The Soho District is 2 street but only restaurant. The prices are bit cheaper then IFC but not as cheap as the local and depends what and how many wine you order.
Eventually, you want a venture and explorer for Asian or Cantonese cuisine. You should take the $2 tram from central (or the MTR=Metro) to Wanchai or Causeway Bay. The Lockhart road along with alot of restaurants for seafood. However, I find out there are some with same owner is a trap for touists, what are shame! So, I recommanded you can goto "Yuet Wan Wui Seafood Restaurant" address: Shop B, 405-419 Lockhart road, Wanchai. The restaurant in between 2 smiliar restaurant which are BAD, so make sure you goto the right one. For Asian restaurants should goto Causeway bay. In there, Most of the restaurants are good and with reasonable prices.
have fun and enjoy your trip!
