If there's anything the ones close to me know, I love to eat! I wouldn't classify myself as a food snob, however I enjoy good food, whether it's in a 3 Michelin star restaurant or in a rustic, down the alley, hole-in-the-wall restaurant. Eating and finding great places to eat is one of my favorite things to do on vacation. Things that have changed somewhat since having a child. As you know, some Michelin-starred restaurants are not as welcoming to young children. They each have different rules. However, the places that I'm planning to introduce to you in Hong Kong are all kid friendly. Let's put it this way. My less than 1 year old at the time joined my husband and I on every excursion! So, are you ready to go on a tasting adventure?

Hong Kong is one of my favorite places to visit. It is just so diverse and full of culture. However, it is also the land of fantastic food, literally a Mecca of food. You've got the variety not only in types of Chinese cuisine, however you also have a wide price range.

Truthfully speaking, it is one of the most affordable places to try out Michelin-starred restaurants. Boy, did we ever try quite the assortment! The best thing about it is that I was so worried about the child-friendliness of these restaurants and it turned out I had nothing to worry about! Every last place listed on my list here was fantastic with our little one. Last thing before you take a look at the list. We did almost all Chinese-style cuisines. Sorry, but I'm not doing Italian or French, etc while I've got so much variety in front of my eyes. Yes, there is more than just fried rice and sweet-and-sour pork, so much more! Except the ramen place...can't help it, I'm a ramen junkie.
