Don’t be fooled by the cosy, no-frills dining room;, a hole-in-the-wall Kwun Tong stalwart, has served up classic Indonesian fare for over 20 years. If you’re interested in trying authentic Middle Java favourites packed full of flavour, this is the place, and make sure to come hungry. Go for classics like charcoal-roasted satay skewers and Nasi Goreng, and you can eat like a king for less than $200 per person.
You can’t say you’ve been to Hong Kong if you didn’t try dim sum, and there’s no better place for a first taste than at. Chef Mak, an alumni of Michelin-starred Lung King Heen, first opened his casual eatery in 2009 to provide high-quality dim sum at affordable prices to all. Tim Ho Wan’s runaway popularity may have transformed it into an internationally-recognised brand, but as a serious foodie, you won’t want to miss making a pilgrimage to the original restaurant in Hong Kong. Head to their Sham Shui Po location, currently the only branch with a Michelin star, and get a taste of their iconic shrimp dumplings, baked buns with barbecue pork filling and steamed beef balls.
