    Hong Kong trip, food and knife/shop suggestions please.

    So I have a work trip to Hong Kong coming up and interested in recommendations both food and knife related.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you are interested in cleavers, you shd definitely check out Chan Chi Kee in Shanghai Street.
    G/F.,, 316-318 Shanghai St, Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong

    Agreed but take a look at their website and figure out what you want before going to the shop if possible. The place is often very busy and even during quiet times service is minimal.

    Great suggestions and thanks. Any food spots or bar suggestions?

    In terms of restaurants:

    Yat Lok - Has a Michelin Star, but expect to sit in a very cramped space, next to strangers and be rushed out within 30 minutes, however the roast meats (especially the roast goose) are superb
    Kwan Kee Claypot Rice - Traditional Cantonese claypot rice, expect a long queue, although there is another place nearby that sells the same thing (think it's called Four Seasons), also get an oyster pancake
    Rainbow Seafood - Awesome Cantonese style seafood restaurant on Lamma Island
    Ho Lee Fook - Modern Cantonese, get the wagyu short ribs
    Lord Stow's Egg Tart at EXpresso, The Excelsior - Delicious Portuguese egg custard tarts
    Mochi shop - There's an tiny unnamed mochi shop that does mango mochis at 311 Hennessy Rd
    Tung Po - Classic, old school, busy, loud, manic, Hong Kong dai pai dong that specialises in seafood
    Ming Court - Upscale Cantonese, (has two Michelin Stars) I had a good meal here back in 2013, expect to spend about £80 per head without drinks. I preferred it to the 2 Michelin starred Yan Toh Heen which I went to in 2015)

    You'll probably come across the name 'Tin Ho Wan' if you do any research, personally I think the quality has dropped massively recently. Go somewhere else if you're looking for Dim Sum.

    My list is only of Cantonese/Chinese places, there's loads of excellent western food and I've eaten very good sushi in Hong Kong too. I liked Sushi Hiro at 7/F, The Toy House, 100 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui when I went to HK in 2013.

    You're in for a treat if you like Asian food, Hong Kong is one of the best places in the world to eat, and also my personal favourite city in the world.

    Bars, there are millions of western style bars. Definitely go to one on a rooftop to enjoy the view. I've been to Sugar and Ozone on the 118th floor of the Ritz Carlton (one of the tallest bars in the world).

    Hi Lim,

    Food... I think there are many suggestions on the web :-) If you have any preferences do let me know.

    For knives, beside Chan Chi Kee, you may want to check out

    1. Chan Wah Kee at G/F, 278 Temple Street, Jordon, Kowloon
    2. Syoukon Hamono at Room 1915, 19/F, Solo City, 505 Hennessy Road, Causeway Bay

    See my post of earlier today about my return trip from Chiang Mai transferring through Shanghai. I've have transferred through Hong Kong a number of times with no problem but don't book a trip to Hong Kong that requires a transfer in Shanghai!!!!
