Cafe Siam

Cafe Siam

With Hong Kong being of Chinese decent, you can only imagine the wealth of Chinese food that there is on offer in the city. However that’s not just it, there are some fabulous imports from Vietnam, Thailand and even Europe! I manage to get a taste of cuisine’s from restaurants to suit all budgets so take a read below to find out which one’s I loved.

Central:

Café Siam – Thai

This was one of the best, and biggest, Thai meals I have ever had. With there being 8 of us in the party, we opted for two of the 2-4 people set menus and were completely overwhelmed with the quality and quantity on offer!

At around $300 each (including wine) you can definitely find cheaper places to eat but this is by no means expensive for the amount of food that is provided! Plus, the venue is very inviting, the staff helpful and the air-conditioning wasn’t Baltic… which is actually a big plus in this humid city (they tend to like to over compensate for the heat outside)!

Dinner set menu from $148

40-42 Lyndhurst Terrace

Pho Noodle Soup at Nha Trang

Nha Trang – Vietnamese

This beautiful Vietnamese restaurant can be found down Wellington Street and does some of the best Pho Noodle Soups I’ve ever tasted. I went for the Beef option and was very impressed. The beef was tender and the noodle soup was delicious. Plus it was only around $40 (the equivalent of around £3).

The venue was immaculate, decorated with duck egg blue walls and pretty furniture. The only down side was that it’s so popular you have to queue outside to get a seat. Although, I was assured by my friend, your wait is rarely over 10 minutes. Well, 10 minutes wait well spent I say!

Peking Garden – Peking cuisine

Situated in the basement of the Alexandra House, the Peking Garden is a Michelin starred Chinese restaurant that, I’m told, is famed for its Peking Duck (so much so that we were told you have to pre-order when we got there!).

The décor is traditional and luxurious and prices aren’t by any means cheap, by the Dim Sum menu is reasonable and the dishes delicious, so if you’re in for treating yourself definitely head here for lunch (booking recommended).

The American Restaurant

Wan Chai:
The American – Chinese 

With a name derived from the American soliders that used to frequent the establishment, this restaurant is by no means the fast food joint it sounds like.

The American is a no frills restaurant that serves good quality Peking Cuisine. It’s by no means fancy, but if you want a bite to eat before heading out in Wan Chai for an evening’s entertainment, this place is perfect.

20 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai +852 2527 1000
