Dinner

Hutong ($$$)

This restaurant’s stone moon gates, calligraphic wood doors and hanging birdcages make you feel like you’ve entered an old Beijing courtyard dwelling. The northern Chinese menu puts a modern spin on classics like “drunken” pigeon (marinated in wine for three days) and the sinus-clearing chili crab.

28/F, One Peking Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui, 852-3428-8342
 

Yung Kee Restaurant ($)

Founded in the 1940s as a street stall, Yung Kee has evolved into a Cantonese diner-style institution. Book ahead and join an eclectic group of celebrities, executives and families gleefully devouring the house specialty, crispy-skinned roast goose, plus braised abalone and tea-smoked pork.

32–40 Wellington St., Central, 852-2522-1624

Why wouldn't you mention The Keg, Lan Kwai Fong's resident Canadian bar?

Absolutely everything in China is fabulous! My first time in China was in 1958, fell in LOVE with Hong Kong then, and that feeling has never been quenched. Later trips were solely China, totally awesome. Don't be afraid to go, it will blow your mind to know that we in the Western world are eating their dust.

Good to see there are fashion areas for the rich and famous and also for the budget conscious "high and Low"
