Food is one of the prime topics of conversation in Hong Kong, so it's a good ice-breaker if you are searching for something to talk about with new friends or colleagues. And as one of the foremost cities in China, Hong Kong has an unrivaled collection of restaurants, large and small, showcasing cuisines from all over the country. If you are visiting during one of the major festivals, such as Lunar New Year, you can expect to find tables filled with traditional dishes and surrounded by enthusiastic diners. Obviously, reservations at this time are essential.
Some of Hong Kong's Chinese restaurants have been going for decades, and old age pensioners who remember being taken out to eat at somewhere like Spring Moon when they were knee high to a grasshopper now treat their grandchildren at the very same tables. Others have made a name for themselves more recently: Hutong, overlooking Victoria Harbour from one of the city's more impressively designed skyscrapers, embraces both an amazing design and thrilling menu. And of course, there are super (Michelin) stars like T'ang Court.
Best of all, you can eat Chinese for a handful of dollars at a streetside hole-in-the-wall or dine in very much more plush surroundings and get a rather larger check at the end of it. There's a meal for all budgets here.
