FIRST STOP: Hong Kong ISLAND
A Ridley Scott's Blade Runner.
Where to stay:
The Murray (Hong Kong Island) - This is a new hotel in Central, and an absolute godsend. I mean this in the most genuine way. The most hospitable staff I have experience out of all the hotels I've stayed in (across the globe), and they also have one of my favourite in-room dining menu's. The Wellness Spa is also one to experience... think an hour of absolute relaxation covered in essential oils of Lavender, Geranium Rose & Bergamote.
Where to quick bite:
Mak’s Noodle: For some OG Shrimp Wonton’s. This is the first and last place I stop at, and there’s one in every suburb. It’s quaint, and has everything you need for a HK meal. I always order the classic shrimp wonton with a side of Gai Lan.
Lunch, Dinner & drinks:
Duddell’s: Michelin starred… but if you’re not good at eating everything with Chopsticks, please practise, kidding, but seriously.
Little Bao: Modern Chinese diner in Sheung Wan, which is also in the new street to go — filled with up and coming restaurants and bars.
Mott 32: Ok, if you’re after Char Siu but the fancy kind this is the best place to order it from. The interiors are also incredible and so is everything else off the menu.
Cafe Gray: This is the type of restaurant I spoke about earlier that is hidden high up in a twenty something level building, with views of the entire city.
Shangri-La’s Lobster bar and grill: I remember stumbling upon this bar back in 2014, with two friends. We sat here for hours drinking their cocktails and listening to live jazz. I think it was the first moment I realised that Whiskey is not for me.
