Ho Choi Seafood Restaurant
3-4/F, China Resources Building
26 Harbour Road
Wan Chai, Hong Kong

My friend Kitty took me to dim sum at Ho Choi restaurant, located in Wan Chai. It was quite delicious, so I went back and took my friends when they came to visit Hong Kong. Ho Choi may be a bit tricky to find because it’s in the business district surrounded by several office towers, hotels and government buildings. Just look for the China Resources Building and it’s on the third floor.

Most dim sum restaurants in Hong Kong offer the standard dishes that you’ll find everywhere. However, many places have their specialty dim sum dishes that you won’t find at other restaurants. Ho Choi’s specialty dishes are quite flavorful and unique. You should try an array of dim sum, including their delicious dumplings in soup broth. The preparation and presentation of dim sum is fabulous at Ho Choi and the food will surely satisfy your stomach!

Spring Deer Restaurant
2/F, 42 Mody Road
Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
Tel: 2366 4012

Our chef preparing the Peking duck

Spring Deer is located on the second floor of an old, run down building in one of the less crowded areas of Tsim Sha Tsui. It’s not hard to find, but don’t expect a fine-dining Peking duck experience. Once you walk up the stairs to the second floor, you’ll see people sitting on round tables with plain white tablecloths while chefs carve the duck on rolling metal carts. My friends and I ate here on a weeknight, but it was quite crowded nevertheless. We ordered a whole Peking duck, vegetables and noodles. The thinly sliced duck skin tasted delicious in between the warm Chinese pancake. In my opinion, the pancake is just as important as the duck skin – it needs to be a perfect pairing. Many restaurants have different types of pancakes, but Spring Deer’s was thicker than most. Because of this, it slightly took away from the crisp, delicate flavor of the duck, which should be most prominent when eating Peking Duck. However, we had an overall delicious meal. I would recommend making reservations a few days before you dine here because it is known to have long waits. Some people even make reservations a week or two before!

My friends and I - ready to eat a delicious meal!

Causeway Bay Spicy Crab
Shop D & E, 440 Jeffe Road
Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

Spicy crab - buried underneath the spices!

When you’re in Hong Kong, you must try the spicy crab. There are several restaurants that specialize in this seafood dish, but I recommend going to Causeway Bay Spicy Crab – not far from the main shopping areas Sogo and Times Square in Causeway Bay. My good family friend Kitty took me here on a Saturday evening, and it was quite crowded. We ordered several dishes, but of course the spicy crab is to absolutely mouth watering and full of delicate flavor. You might be wondering: what is spicy crab? Well, it’s crab that is covered with a variety of spices and peppers. There are so many spices that the crab is literally buried underneath it all! It’s a unique cooking style that is very different than other types of crab you will eat at other Chinese restaurants. Plus, Causeway Bay Spicy Crab has other delicious foods – especially the sweet and sour pork ribs.

Kitty and I with so much food!

The shrimp was delicious. It was covered in tasty bread flakes.
