China: Hong Kong: Where to Eat: Overview
No place does Chinese food better than Hong Kong. Apart from luring the best chefs from mainland China, the city has direct flights from both hemispheres and most continents, allowing sourcing of fresh fish and meat and seasonal vegetables. And nobody is more fanatical about freshness than Cantonese diners, who expect fish to be swimming around in tanks until the minute they go into the wok, or steamer. Many of the finest restaurants are in hotels—with keen competition among the top chefs to dream up new and innovative dishes. All visitors should sample dim sum, the southern Chinese invention (the name means “a little bit of heart”) that is popular all over the world.
