If you’re booking a flight to Hong Kong this year, don’t miss out on these iconic and delicious restaurants! Here are the Top 10 Hong Kong Restaurants You Shouldn’t Miss This Year: Kau Kee, Ebeneezer’s, Lau Sum Kee Noodles, Under Bridge Spicy Crab, Lei Yu Men, Cupping Room, Honeymoon Dessert, Yat Lok, Mak’s Noodle, and Tsui Wah!
1 – Kau Kee Restaurant in Sheung Wan
One of the oldest restaurants in Hong Kong, this 90-year old shop on 21 Gough Street is famous for their Beef Brisket Noodles. Some of the best holiday advice I can give to you while in Hong Kong is to check out the Kau Kee Restaurant.
2 – Ebeneezer’s at the Central
If you are looking for the best biryanis, pizzas, and kebabs in Hong Kong, I suggest you try Ebeneezers. You can find Ebeneezer’s at the ground floor of 24 Hollywood Central in Hong Kong. The restaurant itself is Muslim-friendly because it’s Halal-certified. Ebeneezer’s has up to 12 different dressings to choose from, so you’ll never get tired of going there.
3 – Lau Sum Kee Noodles at Sham Shui Po
If you plan on visiting Hong Kong this year, don’t miss Lau Sum Kee Noodles – an iconic restaurant in the country for its creation of noodles from scratch. Due to their one-of-a-kind flavored noodles, Lau Sum Kee is a restaurant that keeps you coming back for more. One of their best sellers is the Shrimp Roe Noodles.
4 – Under Bridge Spicy Crab in Wan Chai
If you want something spicy, the Under Bridge Spicy Crab is the perfect place for you. This place takes tasty food to a whole new level. You know why? As a customer, you can choose the level of spiciness (Slight, Mild, Medium, Very, and Super). As the name suggests, their spicy crab dish is not to be missed.
5 – Lei Yue Men in Kwun Tong
When I took a vacation to Manila I met friends that invited me to a seaside dampa for a seafood dinner. I will never forget that day. If you thought the Philippines was the only place that has seaside dampas, think again. Lei Yue Men is Hong Kong’s equivalent of a seaside dampa in Kwun Tong. It’s relatively far from the city center, but the experience is worth it when you try their best-sellers such as Lobster Cheese Pasta and Alaskan King Crab.
6 – Cupping Room in Sheung Wan
For sure, you know about Starbucks, Tom N’ Toms, and other famous coffee shops around the corner. In Hong Kong, there’s one coffee shop that they recognize as the country’s “hidden gem.” Did you know that these baristas won titles in various competitions around the world? At the Cupping Room, the world’s most skilled baristas are happy to serve you the best coffee in town. They also serve breakfast and lunch for most of the week, except weekends.
7 – Honeymoon Dessert in Langham Place
If you love desserts in Hong Kong, you’ve got to check out the Honeymoon Dessert. I’m a dessert lover, so this place is undoubtedly going to be on my list. It all started in 1998 by five students who had a passion for desserts. My friends who visited Honeymoon Dessert told me that the Mango Pancakes and Yeung Chi Kam Lo are their best-sellers. You can find this restaurant at Langham Place in Hong Kong.
8 – Yat Lok Restaurant at the Central
Located in the central part of Hong Kong, Yat Lok Restaurant was well-known for its roasted goose meal. It is one of their best sellers that you need to try. To be honest, I have never tried a roasted goose before. Because of this dish, it earned them a Michelin star award. You can try the roasted goose with rice or noodles. Most of the foreigners who visited here said that they’d come back here if they revisit Hong Kong. Don’t miss this place!
9 – Mak’s Noodle at the Central
Some foreigners say that their Hong Kong trip would not be complete without visiting Mak’s Noodle. They serve their best-selling legendary Wonton Noodles, which is believed to be created by Mak Woon-Chi’s descendants, known to be Hong Kong’s “Wonton Master.”
10 – Tsui Wah Restaurant in The Peak
One of Hong Kong’s famous and most significant tea restaurants is the Tsui Wah. They have 26 branches in Hong Kong, 22 in China, and 2 in Macau. Don’t miss the milk tea, king prawns, or fish cakes in fish soup.
