Any restaurant recommendations for any of the 3 spots would be super helpful.....we have most of the sights planned out, but anything great that cant be missed would be awesome too! Thanks in advance.
It really depends what you want to eat!. If you want high end western food then Caprice (3 star michelin) is probably the best followed by Amber (2 stars) IMO. If you want chinese food then you have some range also. You have the super high end and the cheap everyday places. For higher end I am a regular at the golden leaf which is in the conrad hotel and is very reasonably priced and delivers really great food. Huge acclaim is also given to the chinese restaurant in the four seasons hotel and is the only 3 star michelin chinese restaurant in Hong Kong. Something more local but also expensive would be Fuk Lam Moon in wanchai or Tims kitchen. Both can be found in the michelin guide. An interesting place to go might also be Bo Innovation which is a molecular chinese restaurant. Very cool chinese dishes molecular style.
As for the low down on the really local places that do noodles, dim sum, roast goose, congee and a variety of other local stuff the china forum board on chowhound might be best for a look.
Thanks for the replies so far....we are in beijing for 5 days (grand hyatt), 4 days in phuket (jw marriot), and 4 days in hong kong (conrad). We are adventurous in terms of cuisine, but I like to know what I am eating so more of a local flare as opposed to 100% authentic. We are certainly willing to spend time in transit for something worthwhile.
Cool. Will pull from a PM i sent another berserker back in April and post here for Beijing & Hong Kong. I can help with one recommendation for Phuket if I can get the info from my thai friend.
Here's a site that will help tremendously with Hong Kong restaurants: http://www.openrice.com/english
And a recent article from the NY Times. We haven't tried one of these but top of our todo list on our next visit. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/22/trave ... r=1&src=tp
We've stayed at the Conrad HKG. It's a wonderful location. Hopefully you have status and will be upgraded to an Executive floor and will have access to the lounge and will get a Harbor View room.
