Business Trip - Hong Kong/Beijing/Shanghai

Heading to the Hong Kong / Beijing and Shanghai for a single night each in early February. I am looking for a great restaurant (don't care about price) in each city to try. I have never been to Beijing or Shanghai before.

Thanks in advance.

  1. You'll get lots of recs, esp for HK, since there are just so many. So maybe you can narrow the search criteria. For example, will you be all by yourself, where will you be staying, and what kind of cuisine?

      Hong Kong - Central at the Mandarin Oriental
      Beijing - St. Regis
      Shanghai - The Hongta Hotel

      Cuisine requests: Hong Kong - Catonese, Beijing - Peking Duck, Shanghai - open to suggestions

        Just some ideas:

        Hong Kong - Lung King Heen at the Four Season, Tang Court (frankly it's kind of tough to do Cantonese all by yourself, unless you go for the more hole in the wall places like Tim Ho Wan or Yat Lok or Joy Hing).

        Beijing - Da Dong or Made in China at the Grand Hyatt.

        Shanghai - 8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo Bombana.

          So many GREAT Shanghainese food places in Shanghai, why Italian?! Will Bombana be cooking there?

          BTW, I ate at HK's 8 1/2 OeM last summer with Bombana at the helm. And even that was not enough to 'wow' me. Food was good, but no way 3* caliber. More like 1*. Food was over-priced, underwhelming and plated very 'rough with an edge' for a 3* - almost canteen like!.

            I don't know, I just find it difficult for one person to eat at a Shanghainese place, just like for Cantonese. How about Jesse then?
