The eternal question among the Chinese is:

Do we Eat to Live

or Live to Eat?

Hong Kong offers a variety of cuisine from street stalls to imperial courts. Good food galore, for the Cantonese are undoubtedly the best cooks in the world. However, but it’s knowing where & what to eat, as like the locals, that will make the difference to your wallet & palate.

As a regular visitor to Hong Kong, I have come to be familiar with the Cantonese folks in their fondness of eating out. There is no shortage of choice restaurants.

Star Seafood Restaurant (Chinese: “Ming Sing” 明星海鮮舫), formerly called Treasure Floating Restaurant (Chinese: 敦煌畫舫), is a restaurant in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. This is the only marble or granite boat-shaped restaurant berthing along the eastern shore of Shing Mun River, near the junction of Siu Lek Yuen Road and Tai Chung Kiu Road. It serves a variety of Cantonese dishes including Cantonese dim sum & seafood.

    I always wonder whether we eat to live or live to eat…well, it all depends who you are…and thanks for this posting..something to check out in my next trip to HK.

    If you have the dough, then maybe you live to eat and for the Chinese, we would go a long way to find the so called “good food”. In SIN, people won’t mind queeuing for some “hawker food ” if it’s good.

    And for the Cantonese, well, their cooking is superb..most oveseas Chinese reataurants in the major Chinatown cities the world over, are Cantonese.

    And in HK, well, you can find good and fantastic Cantonese restaurants everywhere.

    I have been to HK too many times, and this seafood restaurant mentioned by you will be checked out in my next trip.

    So Paul, when you are next in HK, enjoy.
