#4: The Ritz Carlton — Kowloon
Since the relocation of the downtown airport at Kai Tak to Lantau, the tallest building is now on the Kowloon peninsula. The International Commerce Centre is a 118 storey skyscraper with the highest hotel (Ritz Carlton) in the world located on the 102nd to 118th floors.
 

#5: Tim Ho Wan — Central, Hong Kong Island

Tim Ho Wan are a chain of Dim-Sum restaurants with reputedly the cheapest Michelin starred restaurant in the World. Former Lung King Heen chef Pui Gor opened the first Tim Ho Wan in a hole-in-the-wall in Mong Kok, just a few years ago. There are branches in many districts of HK now including the most conveniently located one in Central.
Guests can eat 3–4 dim sum dishes for as little as US$10 and 1–2 hour queues can easily form, especially on weekends. The secret of their success is apparently steaming the dim sum to order rather than in advance and only using fresh, not previously frozen ingredients.
The oft imitated but never matched cha siu (barbequed pork) pineapple buns are a signature.
This is what dim sum ought to be.

#6: Under the Bridge Spicy Crab — Wanchai Hong Kong Island

Under the Bridge Spicy Crab was so named after its original location and signature dish and has made a real reputation for itself. The signature fried crab is deluged in fried garlic and chilies and can be ordered according to 5 levels of spiciness.
Such crab dishes originated in the nearby Causeway Bay typhoon shelter and were traditionally cooked by the Tanka boat people who made their homes on sampans and cooked freshly caught seafood. Besides the spices, the other ingredient is " good wok-wielding skills."
