Need Recommendation for English-friendly HK Restaurant in Causeway Bay
A friend and I are flying into HK half a day before the rest of our fellow travelers (who speak Cantonese), so we will be on our own for a period of time. We are coming from California, and get in around 7pm, and are staying in Causeway Bay next to Times Square. I'm guessing we're going to be pretty hungry when we arrive, but also pretty exhausted from the travel, so we probably won't want to venture very far.
Unfortunately, neither of us speak Cantonese or read Chinese, so we're looking for an English-friendly restaurant that we can head to that night after we drop our bags off at the hotel and wash up. This doesn't necessarily mean that we need servers that speak English, but at the least we'll need a menu with pictures. The style of food doesn't matter too much, but we already have plans to get roast duck and other meats later in the trip, as well as fresh seafood, so maybe we can avoid those. We'd also prefer things that we can't get at the Chinese restaurants here (which are pretty decent), and we'd like to keep it under HK $150 per person. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help!
Perhaps check out the restaurants in Times Square if you have no time to lose:
I think Shanghai Xiao Nan Guo is pretty decent: http://www.openrice.com/english/resta...
Don't stress -- unless you go to a tiny backstreet local place, you shouldn't have a problem with English-speaking staff, English menus or, at the very least, pictures on the menu. In Japan it's not unusual to be waved away as you (foreigner) seem like too much trouble but they would never do that in HK.
Thanks p0lst3r, Times Square could be a good option. I've also heard that Ho Hung Kee is in the area and is very good (Michelin star?), but that they are not great for non-Chinese speakers because the menus are all in Chinese and the servers don't speak any English. Can anyone confirm or deny this?
