The best Cantonese restaurants in Hong Kong
Hong Kong really does have an impressive variety of global cuisines. From French fine dining, Japanese and Korean, to Southeast Asian eats and beyond – the culinary choices are endless. Hong Kong's own cuisine, however, is mainly influenced by Cantonese cuisine. A cuisine characterised by its lighter and more natural tasting flavours, along with the traditional, and sometimes laborious, techniques used to create them. So, whether you're looking to sample some comforting classics or enjoy an exquisite Cantonese feast, here are some of the best places to find it in Hong Kong.

The best fried chicken in Hong Kong
This town excels at posh versions of fast-food favourites. If like us you've already tasted the best pizzas, chowed down the best burgers and sampled the best sandwiches, so now it may well be time to see what's on offer in terms of fried chicken. The magical contrast of textures synonymous with good fried chicken is due to the thick batter encasing the meat and protecting it from the scorching oil. Inside this delectable cocoon, the chicken actually steams in its own juices to tender perfection. Meanwhile, the hot oil draws moisture out of the batter, leaving a crispy, crunchy, golden crust. So whether you like your chicken boneless and smothered in hot sauce or straight-up to be gnawed off the bone, make sure you have a pack of tissues handy, because things are about to get messy. Many of these places also deliver, so if you want to keep the mess at home, it's easy to do so.
