2. Mr Ray Seafood Restaurant
雷公子海鮮串燒大排檔
A tantalizing combination of garlic, ginger and spice soaking through juicy crab meat - that is the essence of Hong Kongers' favourite dish - the spicy crab (避风塘炒蟹). The beginnings of this dish can be traced back to late 1940s as a product of a potpourri of cultural synergy between Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and China. Many respectable dining establishments offer this spicy crab dish, however, it is recommended to enjoy this spicy crab dish at Mr Ray Seafood Restaurant together with many of its other excellent dishes such as its Sea Salt Prawns (海鹽手插蝦) and 3D Broccoli (立體3D芥蘭), a place well-loved by locals and celebrities alike!

华星冰室
Mega Hong Kong superstar Eason Chan is Capital Café's biggest fan - but there is no surprise because Capital Café has won over the hearts and stomachs of their patrons! In Eason Chan's words: 'If you've never been to Capital Café, you've never been to Hong Kong.' Here, they serve a heartwarming breakfast of scrambled eggs, buttered crusty rolls and excellent milk tea.

4. Cheung Hing Coffee Shop
祥興咖啡室
Retaining its original facade and interior, this cozy coffee shop is characterized by its unique nostalgic vibes. Plastered across Cheung Hing's walls are the photos and signatures of Hong Kong celebrities, including Wu Chien-Lien, Gigi Leung, Julian Cheung, and Carol Cheng. Other than its interesting interior set-up reminiscent of old Hong Kong, their egg tarts, foo-young omelette rice, and buttered pineapple buns have been touted as the best in the city.

6. Lan Fong Yuen
兰芳园
Don't belittle this milk tea - its concoction is a mysteriously addictive recipe... the only thing we know is that it is brewed with five different types of tea leaves to achieve this memorable taste. Even TVB's hottest stars love Lan Fong Yuen's famous 'stocking milk tea' - they keep coming back for it!

8. Sing Heung Yuen
胜香园
Sing Heung Yuen is a classic run-down dai pai dong, but whatever it lacks in pomp, it makes up in its mouthwatering signature tomato broth beef noodles (番茄牛肉太阳蛋公仔面). People travel miles for this! Its tender-smooth beef slices and satisfyingly sour and spicy soup are indeed in a gastronomical league of its own. Shawn Yue and Kenny Bee are regular customers - something so good and cheap is not easy to find nowadays.
