    What are the best places for dim sum in Hong Kong?

    Island Tang — the restaurant itself has kind of a modern Art Deco Shanghai spirit to it, so on that level it’s fairly appealing. It’s got a small menu of fairly exquisite dim sum. It’s very honest food, but that’s the beauty of it. Kee Club is also great for dim sum.

    What are the best restaurants in Hong Kong?

    I like Sang Kee, which is honest Cantonese food. I order the chicken prepared with spring onions. There is Da Domenico, which is Italian, and has great grilled calamari. Then, there’s Spices; it’s an Asian restaurant — a mixture of Thai and Vietnamese. It’s in Repulse Bay and offers alfresco dining, which is very pleasant, especially on a sunny day. I like to get the crabmeat salad with avocado.

    What are the best things to see and do in Hong Kong?

    1. One of the nicer things to do is to go to the south side of the island. You can take a car and just drive by South Bay, Deep Water Bay and Repulse Bay — that long string of beaches. A lot of people come to Hong Kong for a few days and they don’t realize that on the other side of the city it’s so leisurely and picturesque. It might sound obvious, but a lot of people do miss that, especially when they’re here for business.

    2. In Kowloon, there’s the Kadoorie Hill. It’s basically a small hill of residential properties that has been developed over the last 50 years, so there’s some post-war architecture and some houses built today. A lot of it was built in the 1960s and ’70s. It’s really amazing because Hong Kong is a city with a lot of brand new buildings and high-rises. When you have a mountain of these low-rises alongside landscape, it’s really interesting.

    3. There’s a restaurant called Yardbird, which is located on Bridges Street in a Bauhaus-style white building with black window frames. It’s a very urban yakitori experience. It’s quite edgy, very much encapsulating the modern spirit of Hong Kong.
