We always go to Serenade at the Tsim Sha Tsui cultural centre (opposite peninsular hotel). It's a nice place with full height window facing the sea and HK island. 

the dim sum are above average and there are a lot of japanese tourists there as well. 

 

actually not every corner serves good food; but our usual meals are settled at Meixin or those similar fast food places. Itacho and Itamae sushi are also pretty well received in HK too.

Lol, whenever i go to hk i sure will end up eating in those "established" names like Maxim. Cause they are too easy to locate, every street also can find their shop.

大快活,大家樂,美心.... all the chinese fast food places :)

 

can't rem their english names..... their breakfast also quite nice, their roasted stuff also. Hygienic and cheap. I rem they serve steamboat for dinners during dec. quite shiok. 

 

have been to the roast pigeon place at Sha-tin; IMHO it tastes and is sized more like a chicken than a pigeon. Nothing special really. 

 

oh now I remember one place which I like - old, retro and a bit unhygienic. 彌敦粥面家 along Saigon Street, Kowloon.

eating there reminds me of those cafe scenes in 老夫子 hahaha..... love their porridge and how the waiters have their thumbs stuck into the porridge. A lot of thai tourists there nowadays.

Openrice has a mobile app (for IOS, not sure for andriod) that you can download and use in HKG.

 

Probably indicate the kind of food u looking for, locations you want to go and price range to get more recommendations

actually, my HK friends don't go to Tim Ho Wan. they know that Tim Ho Wan is only for Singaporeans going to HK.

 

for dim sum, they recommended me a hidden gem called Fung Shing in Sheung Wan:

for egg tarts, i'm following the flow: you can't beat Tai Cheong (strictly the main branch in Lyndhurst Terrace):

For Cafe, i recommend Mido Cafe at Yau Ma Tei, and Kam Wah Cafe at Prince Edward.

 

For Dimsum, there is this One Dim Sum at Prince Edward. If you want Tim Ho Wan, the one at Sham Shui Po less queue because it is quite far away from MTR.

 

For noodles, i usually go to mak man kee, its around Jordan iirc.

 

For factory outlets, you can either go to Tung Chung Citygate outlets or Horizon plaza at AP Lei Chau. In AP Lei Chau, there is a Prada outlet also. If you into cheap Korean fashion clothings, there is this place near Li Chi Kou call HK industrial building. You can get all sorts of Korean clothings there.
