Off Beat Restaurants in Hong Kong

Nan Lian vegetarian restaurant is so off the beaten path that you'll have to walk through a delightful Tang Dynasty style garden in the middle of Diamond Hill to get there. Once you do get there the atmosphere is conducive to serenity and tranquility; an ambiance in which you can enjoy moments of leisure and peace of mind which is so rare in Hong Kong.

No wonder Si Sun Fastfood and their Hong Kong local styled hamburgers are some what of a legend. Its a little in the middle of nowhere in Hung Hom but the beef patties are sweet and onions juices seep out once you bite, the double cheese burger with a fried egg is the most popular burger and you should order a side of fries to go with it.

Probing Jordan for a timeless taste of real Hong Kong, the Australia Dairy Company is off the beaten path as a local traditional all day breakfast restaurant. Well expect no frills service and not so comfortable seating as well as shouting waiters who know exactly who ordered what and how much your bill is in a split second.

Kam Shan Seafood restaurant in Hong Kong embodies Hong Kong styled Cantonese cuisine. You'll just have to visit this offbeat local restaurant if you don't want to miss out what's arguably the best seafood restaurant in town.

The chef of Mr. Taco Truck is Mexican and the whole atmosphere of a taco truck in Quarry Bay is a novel concept in Hong Kong but if it cures the craving for solid authentic Tex- Mex food in Hong Kong then why people are willing to go all the way out for Mr. Taco Truck.

Mori sushi is ridiculously off the beaten path and you'd probably only find out about it because a friend took you there. Its a literally a matchbox-sized Japanese restaurant just above Graham Street Market.

Caramba Mexican Cantina serves tasty Mexican food and drink in a lively casual setting, with classics such as burritos, nachos, enchiladas, fajitas, chimichangas and quesadillas but its all the way out in Discovery Bay. If you are willing to take a ferry from Central all the way out for with views of the Discovery Bay beach and harbor then you won't be disappointed with their signature Margaritas, including their exotic frozen fruit Margaritas.

Located in a secluded spot under the mid levels escalator in Soho, Bistro Bamboo is one overlooked and offbeat Chinese restaurant in Hong Kong. It's their shanghai dishes that make it unforgettable, the appetizers and the tea that is so warm and unpretentious and the Hangzhou steamed fish is done just right at Bistro Bamboo.

Not a lot of tourists know about the Great Indian Kebab Factory so get off the beaten path and enjoy classy Indian cuisine. The highlight is the Punjab grill, Bukara, Peshawati and the chefs are of course all Indian or from abroad.

Marco's oyster Bay and Grill boasts a colouful variety of Italian dishes for such a great price in an offbeat location for a romantic meal in HK. With a Filipino singer and some interesting unexpectedly good foie gras with beef tenderloin, this is a friendly Italian restaurant with plenty of character and warmth that only the locals would frequent.
