What doesn’t sound great about various combinations of sausages, eggs, bacon, toast, black pudding, baked beans, tomatoes, mushrooms and chips?If it does all sound too much though, try Hong Kong’s best places for pancakes.

The best restaurants in Tai Kok Tsui
Until recently, Tai Kok Tsui was considered something of a dead zone. Stranded in west Kowloon without an MTR station, the neighbourhood was perceived as an industrial area, like the Kwun Tong of old, with little appeal for visitors. Not any more, though. TKT is buzzing. No MTR means more affordable rent and that’s allowed a number of exciting small restaurants to establish themselves. Cantonese, Japanese omakase, Mediterranean cuisine – you can get just about anything in the neighbourhood these days. Not sure where to start? Read on for our guide to Tai Kok Tsui’s best restaurants.And if the area seems too far to go, try our guide to the best restaurants in Tai Po or North Point instead.

The best restaurants in Yuen Long
Sure, the Hello Kitty Farm may have lost its license but that doesn’t mean there’s no reason to head to Yuen Long. The New Territories neighbourhood has been revitalised by the Yoho Mall (and that cinema that offers hash browns) and there’s a range of excellent restaurants to try, from cheap eats and cha chaan teng favourites to super fresh sushi and HK-style desserts. Think it’s too far for you to go? Well, if you’re looking for something a bit closer to home, why not try our guide to the best restaurants in Kennedy Town or Sham Shui Po as alternatives?
