Hong Kong has such a dazzling range of eating options — from casual dai pai dongs to fine-dining restaurants — often the biggest challenge facing visitors is narrowing down the choice of where to eat. Thankfully help is at hand from a homegrown culinary superstar, Chef Lee Man Sing of Mott 32, who shares a few of his favourite places to eat in Hong Kong.
No matter whether he’s eating local or international food, Chef Lee finds inspiration in every single dish he tries. The native Hongkonger started working in kitchens 35 years ago as a delivery boy aged 16; today he helms, the show-stopping restaurant renowned for its marriage of traditional flavours with modern presentation. Spearheading a farm-to-table philosophy, Mott 32’s menu sizzles with Cantonese, Sichuan and Beijing influences in dishes like Apple Wood Roasted 42 Days Peking Duck and Barbecue Pluma Iberico Pork with Yellow Mountain Honey.

I recommend the baked char siu bao. The Central location is very convenient.”in Central is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.
in Mong Kok is a neighbourhood favourite for many local culinary experts. “Lots of chefs come here after work and it’s my first choice for a late-night eatery.
