Before visiting Hong Kong, a foodie friend had warned me that the Michelin-starred restaurants weren't all that. Food just as good was to be had from the hole-in-the-wall joints, and splurging was pointless. I was on the hunt for something I had...
Avenue of Stars, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
Hong Kong by night requires a view from the Avenue of the Stars. It affords the best views in the city of the city (albeit of the business/downtown part of the city). It can get dark up on the 2nd level where it's chock-a-block full of tourist and...
41 Spring Garden Ln, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
There are those ubiquitous egg tarts on every dim sum menu in every city in the world, and then there are the egg tarts at Kam Fung Cafe, off a "blink and you'll miss it" side street in Wanchai. This Hong Kong coffeehouse, straight out of a Wong...
Hong Kong, 銅鑼灣軒尼詩道500號希慎廣場
If there is one thing you must eat while in Hong Kong, make it a bowl of wonton noodles. Causeway Bay’s Ho Hung Kee has earned a Michelin star from mastering these al dente egg noodles paired with shrimp wontons in consommé soup. Wellington Road’s...

If you are looking for great cocktails, head to Lily and Bloom. The drinks are inspired by America’s Prohibition era. They have a lot of great rum drinks like the Old Cuban or the Periodista. Upstairs is a small private dining room and a cigar...
70 Peel St, Central, Hong Kong
I love finding places where I can slip into my regular routine. While on Sunday mornings in LA you can often catch me hanging out at Aroma Cafe in Studio City, in Hong Kong it’s Brunch Club Central. This is the spot to hit up when you need a great...
1-9 Bridges St, Central, Hong Kong
Oolaa is a favorite of mine for meeting friends in Soho for brunch. The Breakfast Bruschetta is excellent, and their lattes are strong enough to kick the jet lag haze. The space is lovely and open, and good for a solo stop at a cafe table or grab...
Hong Kong, Tsim Sha Tsui, Nathan Rd, 100號18/F, The One
The name says it all: This is the place to go for tapas and sangria. Spanish chef Quim Hernandez's signature dishes include potato pudding with cream, and the Silverglass Toast with Iberico Ham, but what better to pair his scrumptious menu, with...
Salisbury Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
There’s no shortage of restaurants inside the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong, but it's hard to pass up Felix, the famed 28th-floor Phliippe Stark-designed restaurant and bar. Sure, the food is good (think deep-fried escargot with harissa-accented...
8 Finance Street Central, Central, Hong Kong
If cheese is your thing, the 3 Michelin starred Caprice at Four Seasons Hong Kong, has some of the best selection of cheeses in town. Don't miss the 4 years old aged Comte, never had we had something so close to Parmeggiano, but way creamier and...

They are most famed for their mouth-watering BBQ pork buns and the queues of people that congregate outside their blink-and-you’ll-miss-it canteen. Welcome to Tim Ho Wan, the one of the world’s cheapest Michelin star restaurants. This is Yum Cha...
20 Nathan Road null, Mong Kok, Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a city with spectacular views from almost every vantage point. Following a morning of elbow shoving and bargain hunting in the Mon Kok market, a passerby overheard my friend and I frantically communicating with a taxi driver of our...
3 sun street, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
Hong Kong’s luxury-brand boutiques can overshadow up-and-coming design talent. Kapok, in Wanchai, fights back with a curated collection of goods from around the world. Soft leather bags by California company Marie Turnor are sold alongside...
108 Hollywood Rd, Tai Ping Shan, Hong Kong
Located on Hollywood Road, amid Hong Kong’s many galleries, antique shops, and boutiques, this café is the perfect place to rest and refuel. The menu includes excellent coffee, a large selection of French wines by the glass, and bistro fare such...
28/F, The Peninsula Hong Kong, Salisbury Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
In order to reach Felix, a swanky restaurant situated on the 28th floor of The Peninsula, you must take the exclusive elevator via the Peninsula Arcade. Felix is renowned for its modern European cuisine, but we like visiting for cocktails and wine...
