2010 Hong Kong Mini Restaurant Reviews

Reviewer: Foodnut.com

We recently finished up our latest culinary tour of China in the Summer of 2010. Hong Kong is a world class city full of great food. Most of the Chinese food was superior to that in the San Francisco Bay Area and even Vancouver, BC Canada.

Here are some quick mini reviews of places we ate at, so you can understand how Hong Kong food compares, and so you select the best places on your visit. We have full reviews for places we deemed important enough;

Tao Heung – 稻香

An unexpected high quality dim sum restaurant with bargain prices (HK$6.80, $9.80, $12.80, and $15.80 per dish) near our hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui. It was recommended by the doorman and was full of locals. It is one of the few that opens early at 7:30am and even gives a discount on dim sum before 11:30am. (Check out by 12:30pm)

Only rated 3.3 on Openrice, but good enough for us. Multiple locations.
