My husband Sean and I recently had the enormous pleasure of a trip to Hong Kong and Malaysia and while my credit card will take a loooong time to recover and this old body was PUNISHED but jetlag on both legs, it was a culinary delight.
Hong Kong is just fabulous for food.
From the Michelin 3-star restaurants (R8000.00 for 2 people for a tasting menu without wine and still on the bucket list) to Cantonese street food, it is all yum. The thing is you need to know where to go. Because of the exorbitant cost of property (and just about everything else – think R100 for a good coffee at Coffee Academics), Hong Kong is full of high rises with floors and floors of shops, restaurants and spas.
One such delight is the L Place at 139 Queens Road, Central. We started the night at The Social Place. They serve modern Asian food and we ordered far too much of the most delicious dim sum, flower tea, springrolls, dragon beard kale and other Chinese treats. The food just kept arriving and we weren’t disappointed.
