Hong Kong's first traditional New York-style deli comes as close as you can get to the real thing -- its chef was trained at the 2nd Avenue Deli in the Big Apple and the authentic ingredients are flown in from New York. The tiled floor, open kitchen, deli case, strung sausages, and wood furniture add to the ambience, but the chandeliers left over from a previous restaurant seem woefully out of place. Still, serious deli lovers will find plenty to love, including latkes, matzo ball soup, salads, pizza, pasta, burgers, and a large selection of three-decker and hot deli sandwiches, including a Reuben, the restaurant's signature sandwich (if you're counting carbs, order the Naked Reuben, which comes without bread). This is a lifesaver for those in desperate need of Western comfort food. Portions are so generous that the restaurant has instituted the doggy bag, a previously unknown concept in Hong Kong. Don't forget to save room for the cheesecake.
