Expensive for what it is, but probably the most impressive (if least authentic) dim sum available in Hong Kong. This is the place to take your visiting relatives to show off the culinary wonders of HK or to impress a date. But if you're just out for good old fashioned dim sum without the razzle-dazzle there are plenty of better bets to choose from. The trolleys, view and consistently high quality make the price worthwhile for an occasional visit.
Step off the Escalator and into this venerable Hong Kong establishment, packed with young, trendy expats prepping for a night out in SoHo or Lan Kwai Fong. Surprisingly, the pizzas are a standout on the menu, with many different options from which to choose. The service is friendly, the drinks are strong and the location could not be better.
Just across the street from another Mexican gem called Coyote, this branch of Agave serves quality Mexican food and has an insane selection of tequila. Popular with expats and locals alike, the casual, inexpensive restaurant also doubles as a bar as the night goes on. Grab a seat at the open windows overlooking busy Lockhart Road for first-rate people watching. This has got to be one of the most unconventionally appealing 'views' in Hong Kong!
Not exactly adventurous eating, but impressive none-the-less. If you've grown tired of curries, rice and noodles, head to this dependable American steakhouse. It's decidedly upscale, and you are pampered and treated like royalty during your visit. You can't belie the quality of the steak, but if you don't fancy it being presented on a buttery, salted skillet, be sure to request a normal plate when you order. The salads and soups are choice, too.
