Adventures in Asia

Travel Notes from Hong Kong

We leave Hong Kong for Macau tomorrow and we wanted to post a few things for anyone doing searches on Hong Kong.

Food

The food in Hong Kong is amazing.  We were staying in Kowloon so most of our recommendations are for the Tsmi Sha Tsui area.

Kanamizu Sushi Bar-Tsmi Sha Tsui (Granville Rd. just North of Nathan). This sushi bar is really good for the price (you can get better sushi). I would really recommend the eel or crab Nigiri that has been blowtorched a bit ($2 USD) and seaweed salad.

Saki is 50 HKD for a bottle.

P1050283

Pizza Express-Tsmi Sha Tsui (Ashley Street)–Great Salads and Pizzas. Excellent service. Prices are under 100 HKD.

P1050287

Red Ant-Tsmi Sha Tsui (Ashley Street)–Pasta, noodle and rice dishes done in a kind of Asian fusion style.  Very popular with the Hong Kongers.

Munch-Tsmi Sha Tsui (right off of Ashley street)–Organic Pasta and Pizzas.  Really good. 

Happy Garden Noodle and Congee Kitchen-Tsmi Sha Tsui (Canton Rd)–This is in Lonely Planet and the shrimp wonton noodles really are awesome.  This is also cheap eats!

Housing

We stayed at Vincent Guest House (see post below) in Mirador Mansion on Nathan street.  Cost was 180 HKD a night.  A little sketchy but the rooms were nice, but small, on the inside.  Quick access everywhere because of the metro but the hawkers might drive you crazy.  The price included internet and laundry. 

Internet

Cyberpro right near the Star Ferry (next to the McDonalds) is screaming fast.  The room has ac and comfortable chairs.  They also have webcams, headphones, card readers and cd/dvd burners.  This is in Tsmi Sha Tsui.
