I just came back from HK 8d7n. Just want to share my experience, after gaining so much info from this forum.
We went to most of the 'forum-recommended' eating outlets:
a) Honeymoon desserts - very nice mango desserts, can visit when you go to lantau island. Its the first few shop that you will see after alighting from the NP360. Otherwise, we manged to bump into it at the World Trade Centre @ Causeway bay.
b) Xu lau shan - very mango desserts, great for mango lovers. We ate like 3times. My hubby loved it very much. You can find it everywhere, including airport. We 1st tried it at the airport after we landed.
c) Tao Haung Super 88 @ silvercord centre (3/F)- very nice and reasonable priced dim sum. We went there for 3 breakfasts. My hubby's favourite was the guan tang jiao (a big dumpling with soup) where you can find sharkfins, fishmaw and a small abalone inside and the soup was very nice. Opens pretty early.
d) Cai yun restaurant @ silvercord (3/F) - Nice place for dim sum. Its cha sau bao is better than tao heung 88. The prawn chang fen is quite nice. This place opens only at 9am. We went there once at around 830am, too early. End up we went to tao heung 88 which is just .
e) Sweet Dynasty - Nice furnished restaurant. The highly recommended dou hua (beancurd) tasted pretty normal. Their dishes are quite average. We went there 3times to try their dishes. 1st time is great. But 2nd time, the service is quite disappointing. Over there, we had to write our orders on a paper and passed to the servers, and after which they will give us back the 'keyed-in' orders and start serving the food. Then we realised they keyed in the wrong order and highlighted to them. So after sometime, they came back with the paper showing the amended order. And after waiting for sometime, we still did not get that dish although the rest of the dishes are already cold. So we asked again, and this time the manager disappeared after we told her. And after sometime, another manager came to us and informed us that that dish had run of stock. Frankly I saw them serving this dish to many others who was after me, and no one informed us of this when they amended the order. I was quite angry as my other dishes are also cold already from the waiting. As we cant communicate in cantonese, we just let it off.
f) éŒ« è¨˜, a famous wanton noodles stall - Very authentic kind of stall in HK. No furnishing but clean. I stayed at ashley apartments (TST) and its just along the opposite street (TST, ichang street). Plenty of newpapers cutting on this stall outside. The size of the wanton is like pingpong ball. The cook uncle added soup for me when he noticed that my bowl is almost out of soup (without charges or us telling him).
g) Cafe de Coral (Da jia le) - We went for its breakfast. It has very western breakfast sets like scramble eggs with ham/bacon/pork cutlet/chicken chop. Quite nice. It has nice furnishing as well. Pretty lots of caucasians enjoy eating there.
h) Maxim Fastfood - Normal chinese food. I tried the wintermelon soup with pan-fried orange chicken set and hubby tried the hotplate porkchop set. Pretty normal dishes.
i) Macau Cafe - Ordered the roasted pigeon, porkchop bun, cafe specialty macaroni, fried mashed potato with the cod fish. The porkchop bun and macaroni tasted normal, nothing to rave about. Potato is ok and the roasted pigeon is crispy.
j) Bubba Gump @ the peak - Western furnished restaurant. Serves plenty of shrimps dishes. Great views from your seats. We ordered the shrimps soup which comes with bread and rice, very nice (we calculated there are like 15 prawns in the soup, hee). The baked rice is good as well. Their servings are quite big. Overall damages is around SGD70 for 1 appetizier, 2 main, 1 drink. Quite reasonable comparing to spore equinox.
k) Keewah Bakery - Wife biscuit is pretty decent. Nice packaging. We bought these back for gifts. I cant find the mango tarts that was mentioned in the earlier thread.
l) Hang Heung Bakery - Tried 1 of its wife biscuit. Very soft and floffy. The skin is thin with lots of filling compared to the keewah one which had thicker skin. I like Hang heung ones but they does not have individual packaging ones for gifts purposes. Initially thought of buying a box back at the airport, but realised its not available at the airport. I saw both Keewah and wingwah at the hk airport, the area after the custom (near the gates). I tried Hang Heung at Causeway bay sogo.
m) Krisy kreme donuts - I tried the NY cheesecake, orange and oreo donuts. Tasted nice. I didn't buy any back as I thought its pretty alike donut factory ones. For those interested, you can get them at hk airport or Mongkok, Sai yeung choi south street near the end of the street.
