Hong Kong Food and Sleep from Mike McDermott-Asia Expert

When it comes to roaming, consuming, loving and recommending in Asia, it’s tough to beat Mike McDermott, filmmaker, great guy, on the move. He was just in Hong Kong and took some time out to recommend the following. Oh yes, there is a rare picture of Mike relaxing at the bottom of this post.

Dim Sum

It better be good in picky Hong Kong and Mike has recommended the Star of Canton (2401, 24/F, iSquare, 63 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui). Food and view both-great.

The View-Star of Canton

There are always interesting combinations in Asia of international cuisine and Orchard Garden Cafe is such a place.

Japanese cuisine:

And amazing looking desserts and a pancake and waffle menu (with various toppings-see above to drool) to die for.

Orchard Garden (1/F, 491-499 Kyoto Plaza, Lockhart Road, Causeway Bay)

And when he’s not suing the heliport, he’s recommended the redone (at least since I was there 5 years ago!) Intercontinental Hotel. It’s got views for jacuzziing (is that a verb?)

and a redone lobby and drinks area that overlooks Hong Kong harbor. While there are such great hotels as the Peninsula, the Grand Hyatt and the Mandarin Oriental, the redone Intercontinental can hold its own and also boasts a Alan Ducasse restaurant.

Thanks Mike for all your contributions and now you can take a break:
