Her Hong Kong food experience...

 

When my girlfriends visit...
I’m a Hong Kong resident. When my girlfriends visit from abroad, I suggest these restaurants:
There’s Pepperoni's (Stanley Market), if you're craving a pizza
Nepal, for some interesting Nepalese (12 Staunton Street in Soho)
Peking Garden in Alexandra House on Chater Street (go for the noodle making show).
Sichuan Garden in the Landmark Building
Asian noodle dishes for lunch at Eating Plus (at the Airport Express station above the Central station) Very reasonable!
Finally, enjoy a big splurge Vietnamese treat at colonial-era Indochine in Lan Kwai Fong.
Michelle Cohen, Hong Kong
Ed.note: When my girlfriends go to Hong Kong I suggest that they try Peking specialties like the honey-glazed duck in pancakes at the Spring Deer Restaurant (1/F, 42 Moody Road, Tsim Sha Sui). You absolutely must make reservations (723 3673) and you absolutely must bring a sweater. Their air-conditioning is extreme.

Solo and female-friendly eats...
I have several restaurants solo friendly restaurants I’d like to recommend. The Wyndham Street Deli on Wyndham Street in Central is a good place for coffee, reading the papers, eating healthy food, juices and fabulous desserts. This place gets very busy at lunch, dinner time is quieter and it's a nice place if you want to be on your own.

My all-time favourite Hong Kong hangout is The DKNY Cafe at the DKNY shop on Canton Road, TST, Kowloon. This place is so comfortable, I always drop in when I’m close by. They serve excellent, toasted sandwiches which come with potato salad; good coffees and desserts and you can read all the latest magazines (Vogue, Wallpaper, etc) free of charge. You can just take hours here and they don't mind. One small problem, though -- there’s no toilet!

Lan Kwai Fong...
We, too, love going to the restaurants and bars in Lan Kwai Fong - if you love Vietnamese go to Indochine (very chic).

Italian in Hong Kong...
Grappas in Pacific Place, Central serves consistently good Italian food. You can either request a table on your own or sit at the bar or bar area where you're perched on stools with loads of smaller tables. Great for a glass of wine and quick pasta before/after the movies or a shopping spree.
Anna Cheung, Hong Kong

Cajun in the Soho (South of Hollywood) area...
I thought Journeywoman would be interested in the Cajun Restaurant because of the food, the atmosphere and also because it is woman-owned. I recommend their Shrimp Creole and then if you dare, consider one of their scrumptious desserts -- Black Magic Chocolate Cake, Pecan Pie or Praline Cheesecake. Yum! (9-13 Shelly Street, Central)
Judy Love Eastham, Hong Kong
Ed. note: They also offer “Voodoo Pasta.” Love that name!
More Italian...
I’d like to alert Journeywoman readers to the fact that The Lobster Bar in The Island Shangri-La has fantastic Angel Hair Pasta and Lobster Bisque. A real taste treat!
Jean Kelly, Melbourne, Australia
Eat green, eating healthy...
Check out the lunch buffet at Oscar's for helpings of healthy greens and a wide assortment of other tasty salads. The price is right at $85 HK. Located in the World Trade Centre, next to the Excelsior Mall, above the Excelsior Hotel in Causeway Bay
Daffyd and Lisa, Hong Kong

Bonus -- Breastfeeding -- restaurant etiquette...

Waaa!Please be culturally correct. Chinese women, if and when they do breastfeed, would never consider feeding their child in public (i.e. restaurants or hotel lobbies). I suggest breastfeeding moms seek out the washrooms of the upscale hotels and restaurants. Many of them have lovely lounge type areas with comfortable chairs, etc. One extraordinary facility that comes to mind is the Mandarin Oriental at 5 Connaught Road in Central.
