4 Nights in Hong Kong Over Chinese New Year
I'll be spending 4 nights in Hong Kong over Chinese New Year with my wife (before heading on to Penang), and am looking for some dining recommendations.
We'll be there for dinner from 8th Feb to 11-Feb, and I'm partcularly stuck for the 10th and 11th, when I believe some restaurants will be closed. We also don't want to venture too far from Tsim Sha Tsui on these days, as we plan on having a relatively early dinner before the night parade and fireworks.
We've been to Hong Kong a couple of times before, and have really enjoyed:
Din Tai Fung
Yung Kee - closed over CNY :(
Looking over some notes from the last trip, I liked the sound of Tim's Kictchen - but I believe that too is shut over CNY :(
I also see Nanhai no. 1 mentioned here a lot recently, but they are booked up :(
I'm open to anything from hole-in-the-way up to Michelin starred eateries, up to a maximum of around 600 HKD per person. Would probably prefer to try more Cantonese fare, but am also open to mainland Chinese (Sichuan, Hunan, Shanghaianese, whatever).
Looking forward to your advice and suggestions!
Just like it's a tradition for many American-Jews to have Chinese food during Christmas since most other restaurants are closed (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/879597), it's a somewhat quirky tradition in *my* family to have Indian food when we eat out during Chinese New Year's 2nd day as many Chinese restaurants in Singapore will either be booked out, or else offer outrageously-priced but mass-produced, lousy-tasting dishes, or will still be closed. We do this every year :-)
