Food is one of the staples of Hong Kong conversation, and a large family meal is one of the week's milestones for a great many residents. Take a look at the large groups clustered around the table at a dim sum restaurant on a weekend morning: grandparents, parents, children and even babes in arms, all enjoying Hong Kong's signature breakfast. The scene at a restaurant like the Luk Yu Teahouse is a prime example.
So it's no secret that family-friendly dining is a given in Hong Kong. Many restaurants feature special kids' menus, or will serve dishes in smaller portions on request. And children are welcome just about anywhere, as long as they are reasonably behaved.
The food served up at family-friendly restaurants is of a consistently high standard. And the surroundings can be fun as well – like at the Jumbo Floating Restaurant in Aberdeen, long a beacon on the tourist trail and a truly atmospheric slice of old Hong Kong. And for a family-friendly meal that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, a trip to one of the numerous branches of Cafe de Coral is a tasty and economic answer.
Families large and small can look forward to some great eating in Hong Kong.
