Forgive the lack of visuals; I barely had time to roam around and snap photos because I was really in HK for work.
But do let me recommend where to eat if ever you find yourself roaming the Causeway Bay area in Hong Kong. (Since I don’t speak a single word of Mandarin, my bosses/colleagues took the liberty of ordering so I can’t really tell you what dishes we had, just that they’re all mostly good!)
- Super Star Seafood Restaurant Food Forum, Times Square - the place was packed when we dropped by on a Sunday afternoon; better have your reservations made ahead
- Cafe de Coral All around Hong Kong – this is a large HK Chinese fast food chain apparently. Food is good, but the language barrier is really tricky. Didn’t like their version of the Pancit though, it’s too dry (so it is in most places I’ve eaten; dry noodles really are dry)
- Ho Hung Kee and the dessert place beside it Sharp St., Causeway Bay - eat here if you’re not the picky eater type because the place is really small and not exactly your usual squeaky-clean restaurant. It’s a one Michelin-starred resto though, for its wonton noodles so that should do it for you. Dessert place is also good
I know this doesn’t qualify as a 5-star rating kind of review, but you can always Google these spots. You won’t lack resources to find them and get recommendations on the dishes.
Causeway Bay is a pretty good area to stay in because of its proximity to the shopping district (think Forever 21, Uniqlo, Apple store), an MTR station, and pretty much anything you will need to enjoy your trip. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, a very good traveler’s hotel which has all the comfortable necessities, and which I highly recommend. Rooms aren’t that big, but hey, if you’re out for most of the day, what matters is a clean room and a warm bath when you get back to the hotel, right?
