Lunch at the desk no longer means a sandwich on the run but is becoming a way to relax in a familiar environment and eat well in the middle of the day. And, if a sandwich does not appeal there is more luxurious fare around. Yung Kee, the award-winning restaurant at 32-40 Wellington Street in Central may offer the best Chinese cuisine in Hong Kong.
