About Hong Kong Restaurants

If there's one aspect of Hong Kong that truly emphasizes its reputation as a crossroads of East and West, it's the dining scene. Almost every Chinese cuisine is represented here -- Cantonese, Sichuan, Shanghainese, you name it -- while international restaurants from all over Asia and the rest of the world garrison the main areas such as Central and Tsim Sha Tsui. Japanese cuisine is an especial treat for Hong Kongers out for a feast, while the substantial Indian community is well represented by restaurants large and small. In fact, few countries go unrepresented -- there are even Turkish, Belgian and Argentinian restaurants. Bon appetit.
