Our Top 3 Tables in Hong Kong
MODERN: Mott 32
Modern in look, innovative in cuisine. Sleek and elegant interiors, predominantly black with copper elements. The food is outstanding, the familiar made unexpected. Char Siu is Barbecue Pluma Iberico Pork glazed with Yellow Mountain Honey, its marbled meat engorged in flavor. Siu Mai is steamed Iberico Pork with Black Truffle that encases a soft quail egg, its creamy yolk bursting in your mouth when you take that bite. The signature Apple Wood Roasted 42 Days Peking Duck needs no description. Reservations must definitely be made, together with your pre-order of Peking Duck and Char Siu.

TRADITIONAL: Shang Palace
The recipient of two Michelin stars from 2009 to 2017, nine continuous years of excellence, a feat not easily equaled. Traditional Cantonese cuisine, luxurious in the use of ingredients, presented as art on a plate. Chef Mok’s signature dishes change according to the season, his tasting menu a journey through the sublime. Every bite is a complex combination of flavors and textures.

HOLE IN THE WALL: Ho Hung Kee
It’s a noodle shop. Wonton noodles that I guarantee will make you swoon. Dumplings that are firm, thin egg noodles that are chewy and broth that tastes like the rich soup of balut. Comfort food that you dream about. Congee is also remarkable, creamy and satisfying, with sea bass congee high up on my list. Their one Michelin star is back but it remains affordable, one of the cheaper Michelin rated restaurants in Hong Kong.
