In Hong Kong, no problem to find cheap Chinese restaurants and whose map is translated – more or less well – in English or with photos. But after our 7 days there – see the 7 days article in Hong Kong – here are some good places to eat in Hong Kong that we recommend:
Dim Sum Square – 88 Jervois St – Sheung Wan District
This is our favorite address in Hong Kong. This is cheap and then a rather varied choice with Dim Sum that I have not yet found elsewhere. My favorite Buns with meat that combines dough a little sweet brioche with a cooked meat in the center, the “Fried Glutinous Rice Balls with pork” understand by those balls of fried rice containing cooked pork and steamed ravioli shrimp, finally an address that we recommend. They also serve fried chicken pasta if you want a typical Chinese dish – they love it, we wonder why! You can also test for dessert the mango pudding, it’s not too bad. To get to Hong Kong, booking online is the best way to get your air tickets.
Hungry Korea – 24-38 Ashley Road – Tsim Sha Tsui District
This is a nice place to eat Korean food. It’s quickly served and it’s good. You see the people cooked at the bar. The principle is to mix the whole of his dish which is served in a hot bowl before eating it. The bowl consists of rice, vegetables, an egg and a meat.

La Crêperie – 69 Jervois Street – Sheung Wan District
It is therefore a Crêperie as the name suggests, held by a Frenchman. Normally I’m not a great fan of Crêperie, except during my stays in Brittany, but I admit I was very happy to find some food other than rice. And it must be said that they are very good cakes that are served in a warm atmosphere with a staff caring! We advise you to book, the Crêperie is often full.
Din Tai Fung – 30 Canton Road, Shop 130, 2nd Floor – Tsim Sha Tsui District
This is a Taiwanese chain, awarded by the Michelin Guide which offers including dumplings – Dim Sum. Some friends had challenged us to eat truffle Dim Sum. But in front of the price and the fact that Simon does not really appreciate the taste of the truffle we stayed on more traditional Dim Sum. There is a clear difference in quality in the products, after there is also a clear price difference compared to the restaurant Dim Sum Square. But it is worth testing as the dishes are thinner, more fragrant. We ate there on weekdays, around 3 pm; there was no queue like that maybe the case in the evening or on weekends.

Ajisen Ramen – Shop 231B, 2 / F, Shun Tak Center, 200 Connaught Road – Sheung District Wan Ajisen Ramen
It is a Japanese restaurant chain where one can mainly eat Ramen—Japanese pasta. It’s hearty and not too expensive and it changes a little. We tested the one that is in the shopping center of the pier for Macau but there are several in Hong Kong – only 4 addresses on Hong Kong Island – and for us is a safe bet when we do not know what to eat.
