Thomas Lim was born in Sarawak, Malaysia. He came came to Hong Kong in 1987 and now does wine consultancy and staff training for restaurants and bars. Lim says there aren't any restaurants devoted solely to Malaysian cuisine he can recommend, but he likes the following places for their combination of Malaysian and other Southeast Asian dishes. Touch of Spice, 10 Knutsford Terrace, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2312 1118. 'This is a Thai and Vietnamese restaurant. We've tasted many of the dishes and they're good. The curry chicken served in a loaf of bread (pictured) is beautiful; it's one of their most popular dishes.' Cinta, 69 Jaffe Road, Wan Chai, tel: 2529 4183. 'They make a nice Assam laksa, which is sour and a little more spicy than the kind of laksas you usually get in Hong Kong. The Nonya laksa is also good. Plenty of Chinese places try to make this dish too much like a curry - it's not the same thing at all.' Thai Jade, 55 Leighton Road, Causeway Bay, tel: 2808 0734. 'This used to be near Times Square but they moved to bigger premises. Many of their dishes are good - the grilled pork neck is beautiful. Prices are very reasonable.' Golden Bull, 11/F, Food Forum, Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2506 1028. 'The deep-fried soft shell crabs are wonderful. I also like the vegetables with salted fish.' Chilli N Spice, Miami Mansion, 13 Cleveland Street, Causeway Bay, tel: 2504 3930. 'Most of the menu is Thai but they also serve excellent Hainan chicken rice.'
