The best fish and chips in Hong Kong - light battered and crispy! Bit far and it closes at 7pm so it’s great for lunch.
Edit: ok I went back and the quality wasn’t amazing. I think they did a special job for “Mrs. Wong” - the auntie who took us here. For us incognito bozos they sadly didn’t bother maintaining their high standards. (Downgraded from a recommendation to a memory)
Family-owned Rainbow Seafood Restaurant has been serving a fun dining escape to locals and tourists alike since 1984, giving away free boat rides to hungry guests from nearby piers. Their specialties are best enjoyed with company, their portions massive enough for sharing between big groups. Make sure to order signature dishes such as Rainbow Fish Garoupa, Baked Lobster with Butter Sauce, and Spicy Prawns.
If there’s a dish that emerged from Hong Kong’s bygone typhoon shelter culture, it’s the classic spicy crab. Under Bridge is a well-known spot that serves the iconic dish with their own flavorful twist of toasted garlic, shallots, and spring onions. The restaurant also offers other hearty specialties including Sautéed Scallops, Stir-Fried Squid, and Boiled Spicy Whelks with Chinese Wine—all approved by no less than the late but great Anthony Bourdain!
