Ada Yeung is proprietor of the Anglo Chinese Florist shop on Lyndhurst Terrace in Hong Kong’s Central district, which her family founded on nearby Pedder Street in 1946. She spoke to Andrew Sun. I am not very picky about food and I like all kinds of cuisines, so what I choose is really random and depends on what I feel like that day and who I eat with. I love places with history, especially those which show Hong Kong’s unique colonial history. The Peak Lookout (121 Peak Road, The Peak, tel: 2849 1000) is one of my favourites. Going to the Peak is my quick getaway break from busy life and also allows me to get back quickly due to its proximity. I love taking a stroll, doing some meditation or reading at the Victoria Peak Garden, before going down to the Peak Lookout for a good brunch. The menu truly shows how diverse Hong Kong is, and the interesting historical building and outdoor garden is lovely to hang out in. From all-day breakfast to Indian tandoori, you always get a good standard of food and service. I love hotpot and Yi Hung Yuen (Yu Yuet Lai Building, 43-55 Wyndham Street, Central, tel: 3101 9968) is iconic with its Chinese decor in the middle of all the Western bars. The name, which literally means Chinese brothel, the menu and the serving ware makes the experience even more fun. Their fish maw and chicken soup base is my favourite choice. Luk Yu Tea House (24 Stanley Street, Central, tel: 2523 5464) would be my first choice for lunch with new visitors. No trip to Hong Kong can be complete without dim sum. Their tea is the best in town and I love my tea. It’s hard to find another place with old-school traditional dim sum, and the whole experience makes it all so interesting. I am glad that right in the city’s business hub we can keep a piece of valuable history alive. I think their stained glass decor dates back to the 1930s. My parents would take us there every weekday morning for tea and reading the newspaper before they went to work. For celebrations, Sushi Kuu (1/F, M88, Wellington Place, 2-8 Wellington Street, Central, tel: 2971 0180) is my evening choice. I like places where my friends and I can relax and chat, without getting too uptight. The place I want to travel to again for food is Japan. I love dining at traditional hot spring hotels. The food is always so fresh and presented so elegantly. It’s magic, making the simplest foods their best delicacy. Honjin Hiranoya Bekkan (1-5 Honmachi, Takayama-shi 506-0011, Gifu-ken, tel: +81 577 34 1234) is one of the best stays I had. Another is Germany. I love the historic fairy-tale towns and enjoy their enormous and delicious traditional cakes, fruit tarts and local beer. They also have a raw minced pork breakfast dish called mett , that is strange for non-Germans but I actually like it quite a lot. Mittenwald is one of my favourite little towns and would definitely stay again at the Post-Hotel (Karwendelstraße 14, 82481 Mittenwald, Germany, tel: +49 8823 93 82 333). Like what you read?
