Her Hong Kong food experience...

 

European Asian fusion...
“M” at the Fringe (1/F, 2 Lower Albert Rd., Central, 2877-4000) is a fab find for females visiting Hong Kong. It is generally considered by local expats (and concierges at local five-star hotels) to be the best restaurant outside of a hotel. It's in an odd location, on the upper floor of a former colonial dairy/ice house. Nowadays, below M's, there's an alternative arts center and gallery, the Fringe Club. The food at Michelle's (the "M" in the restaurant's name) is a funky mixture of European dishes with Asian touches and Middle Eastern dishes, such as mauti, or dumplings, and fesenjan, a Persian recipe of duck, walnuts and pomegranate. Exciting!

Single men and Vietnamese food...
Le Jardin, Wing Wah Lane in Lan Kwai Fong district is a wine bar that serves simple Vietnamese food like noodles in soup, spring rolls, etc. at lunchtimes. It has a lovely terrace to sit out on especially in cooler less humid weather. Lots of single men and women go up there for a bit of quiet time.
Anna Cheung, Hong Kong

Continental Nouvelle Cuisine...
If you’ve been doing the shops in Tsim Sha Tsui all morning and you’re pooped, why not do as I did? Pamper yourself with a wonderful lunch --“see and be seen” at the Avenue Restaurant, Holiday Inn Golden Mile (50 Nathan Road). Expect a chic, sparse NY style bistro atmosphere, lots of green plants, fresh flowers on your table and an all-male staff ready to spoil you with their creative menu, delightful food, and excellent service. I chose Roasted Pumpkin Soup with coriander followed by Herb Risotto with Tomato and Shallot Sauce. Dessert was Creme Brulee with strawberries. A real big splurge treat!

Popular Indian food
When I want Indian food I go to Taste Better Curry where the food is both very cheap and excellent. It is located on Wellington Street just a few doors down from where it meets Lyndhurst Terrace. You can get a delicious main course there for about US$5-7. Everyone I have taken there has loved it!

Japanese...
My girlfriends and I love to go to Matsubishi where they serve the best Teppanyaki at fairly reasonable prices (about HK200). It’s fun -- the serving staff ties an apron on each guest and then the chef cooks the meal right at your table. Very busy so try to book ahead. (Renaissance Harbour View Hotel, Wan Chai).

Picnic in your room...
Finally, no matter how wonderful the food in Hong Kong, my budget and my appetite cannot cope with restaurants as a steady diet. So I seek interesting take-away alternatives. At the immaculately clean Coo Supermarket (basement level of Seibu Department store in Pacific Mall, Central) there’s a wonderful assortment of deli (cheeses and meats), fruits and veggies, yoghurt, wine and goodies for desserts. Near the Star Ferry in Tsim Sha Tui, there’s a 7-11 Shop, as well as a cafeteria at the Salisbury YMCA (perfect for inexpensive take-away soups). Interested in having a pizza delivered? Call Domino’s Pizza Head office at 2515 1038 to reach the branch closest to where you’re staying.

Bonus -- What will the kiddies eat?

friesIn Hong Kong, there’s so much choice that even if you have children with finicky tastes, you won’t have trouble satisfying their requests whether it’s for burger and fries, pad thai or pizza. Buffets (one of HK’s most popular dining options) are absolutely everywhere so even young children can make decisions themselves about what they want to eat. I offer two options to your female readers -- First, Dan Ryan’s (Pacific Place in Admiralty) with their great burgers features a choo-choo train as part of its decor and secondly, check out Movenpick Marche (Victoria Peak ) offering an international cafeteria and a fantastic view. Your kiddies will be happy!
