      hey sher. this is to digress a bit. i'm flying to HK this may and i haven't been there for almost a decade. and i read in a previous thread that you work for l'atelier. so i assume you are a certified foodie. anyway, i'm probably trying either caprice, l'atelier and gaddi's but not all of them. my problem is with cantonese food. I'd like to try the authentic ones and not those found in 5 star hotels. care to give some tips?

      thanks!

        i'm no longer at l'atelier...and not all chefs are foodies =P

        read my post here http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/602591?tag=highlight-4506096;post-content-4506096#4506096 and http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6025...

        do you speak/read cantonese?

          at least you know your food. ;). you transferred? even if you are no longer at l'atelier will you still recommend it? i might just go there for lunch and try the prix fixe.

          sadly, i dont know how to speak and write cantonese :(

            even my reply was deleted!

            thanks for the advice. i'm staying at the peninsula. i have doubts with michelin being applied to HK/MACAU or for that matter outside of europe. usually when im in new york i use zagat.

            i think they have biases in favor of european chefs. but i was a bit surprise that bias didn't work for spoon.

            i think homegrown guides are better...
