Best Lunch Options in Central

It is impossible to eat everything you want to try in Hong Kong. There are too many options and too few days on a trip. So while breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, in Hong Kong, every eating moment is the most important meal of the day.

Lunch, Part 1

Short weekend trips to Hong Kong are the perfect excuse to eat a little more. Plus, all that brisk walking around the city is an excellent calorie burner. So why not have 2 lunches or a food crawl?

Sen-ryo sushi. Conveyor belt sushi joints may be considered low-brow and low quality, but if you choose the better cuts from the belt or from the menu, Sen-ryo offers some affordable and quality sushi. This is a perfect first stop for lunch in Hong Kong
Aside from the options around the conveyor belt, you can also order from the menu. Sen-ryo offers a range of toro (tuna belly) to order per piece. Order as much as you like because the quality is excellent and the price is affordable


Dim Sum in Hong Kong

Since you are in Hong Kong, you will undoubtedly have at least one Chinese meal. Hong Kong has some of the best dim sum restaurants in the world, from budget street eats to high-end formal dining.

Dim sum at Social Place. For trendy and tasty dim sum, try Social Place in Central. The restaurant offers fun creations of classic and modern dim sum, perfect for solo eaters and for large groups to share
Dim sum at Man Wah at the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong. For high-end dining, Man Wah offers some of the best Chinese cuisine in the city. Weekends are recommended for their extended dim sum menu


Classic British Lunch in Hong Kong

While Chinese cuisine is the obvious dining choice when in Hong Kong, consider indulging in British cuisine. With Hong Kong’s British history, the city offers some of the tastiest dishes in Asia

The Chinnery at the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong excels in British cuisine. From these amazing fish and chips to curries and even shepherd’s pie. Plus, pair it with a pint of Guinness, a cold cocktail, or a fine wine – a perfect vacation lunch in Hong Kong
