HOng Kong restaurants---price not a problem
Can someone recommend their favorite HK restaurants for 2 newcomers to HK (+ 1 business traveler), staying at the Intercontinental. We're in our 50's and want a nice relaxing atmosphere with good food and a lovely setting.
We don't want something too too---so I'm not sure if we want to go to Felix or Hutong--I think the food at Felix is a bit too architectural and too weird at hutong.
Would appreciate your advise----price is not an issue--we don't really want a fancy stuffy french either...
There is a site called www.openrice.com you can look for ideas. (recently they have it in English it's a bit like yelp in SF and toptable in London
)I would recommend Shang Palace at TST Kowloon Shangrila for dimsum/yumcha.
And Cafe Gray Deluxe at Admiralty Upper House for a fine non-french dining.
You might wanna try the Spoon experience at Intercon. and the steakhouse is pretty good too.
IMO, Yan Toh Heen, the Cantonese restaurant inside the Intercontinental and a new recipient of a Michelin star, has better food than the two Michelin 2*, Tan'g Court and Shang Palace in the vicinity. Also, YTH has a great view of the habour which Shang Palace does not provide.
If price is not a problem, rather than trying out Spoon which IMO is only so-so foodwise, I would head next door to Nobu and have an Omakase meal! Great food but prepare to pay!!
