Hong Kong has a reputation for non-stop work, with breakfast snatched on the way to the office, lunch eaten at your desk, and dinner little more than a takeaway at the end of the day. So are there really any openings for a romantic dinner? The answer has to be a resounding yes.
First off is the city's stunning location – set around Victoria Harbour, with skyscrapers towering on every side. Second is Hong Kong's affection for not just Chinese food, but for cuisines from all around the world, to say nothing of a penchant for gourmet. And fine wines fill Hong Kong's restaurant cellars.
So the end result is scores of romantic dining venues, which are all the more popular as Hong Kongers need a break from their hectic schedules from time to time. Many of the most romantic restaurants are in the city's hotels, with Gaddi's being a prime example. This is gourmet dining for the upper crust, totally formal and utterly memorable. For a little more informality, hit any of the four branches of Frites -- fun food and fun times. And if it's celebrity chefs you're after, look no further than Nobu, possibly one of the most famous romantic dining names on the planet.
