Satisfying your passion for raw fish usually means paying a whole lot or sacrificing quality. You'll do neither at this Wan Chai restaurant.

Yummy Sushi: Hong Kong sushi joints tend to be either very good but very expensive, or cheap but taste like it came straight out of Wellcome's pre-made sushi boxes. Yummy Sushi in Wan Chai, however, is that rare happy medium. It's definitely affordable — you and a friend can fill up with generously cut sashimi and still pay less than HK$200 each — but there's no hit in quality. The place also has an indie vibe, as it's literally a hole in the wall. You either perch at the two-metre-long bar, or sit at a table on the footpath dai pai dong-style. It's on a quiet street too, so don't worry about sucking up exhaust fumes. Ben Sin
