HK bound in July after a long spell. PLEASE share your MUST Eats Recommendations!

Please lead me to the current BEST Eats in HK! I will be staying near the Wing On Department Store in Sheung Wan. But, will travel to other areas for Good eats. Mainly going to HK just to eat :-)

Please share Best BREAKFAST - LUNCH - DINNER and SNACK/Street food places too and a short list of WHAT to Order please.

I do not speak/read nor understand Chinese but, not afraid to explore. Did survive one month in Beijing, just armed with ispeak Mandarin on my ipod :-)

Looking more for the best HK local food as I was previously based in NYC for 7 years before moving back to Asia (Manila) and not really missing Western food as much unless there is something new and exceptionally good that you guys think I must try.

Really curious to know my choices for the ff. as well....

Best Roasted Goose ~ aside from Yung Kee where else can I go?

      Hi Charles,

      Been reading the various posts. Would love to get more ROASTED GOOSE Options within HK Island and Kowloon though. Beyond Yung Kee, Yat lok and the Manor.

      Best Breakfast/Brunch and Snack options within Sheung Wan and Central too.

        Joi Hing - Wan Chai ( hole in the wall )
        Lung Wah - Causeway Bay ( hole in the wall )
        Man Ho - inside J.W Marriott ( surprisingly good! )

        Last March, I spend some time walking and exploring the side streets north of Jordan Road in Kowloon. I noticed at least three very impressive looking Chinese roast meat/B-B-Q places. I randomly picked one and had a roast goose leg, which was succulent and tasty with crispy skin. Really busy hole in the wall, so did not get a business card!
        Stay away from Wing Hap Lung in Monk Kok. It was mentioned in Michelin, but I was very disappointed with the quality!

    2. A bit late here, but the Peking duck at Peking Garden (Pacific Place Mall) this evening was delish. Also liked the crabmeat & bird's nest soup there.

        I ate a whole Peking duck here on a dare including the stir fry. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
