This was my combo on my last trip there:
1) wake up & eat b/f at cafe de coral (french toast, ice coffee, marcaroni, pineapple bun)
alternative: eat dim sum (most dim sum restaurants start serving as early as 7.30am; unlike the lazy buggers over here who start at 11 am).

2) If you did not have dim sum for breakfast, take it for lunch
(recommends Maxim, Kamboat)
If you had dim sum, then try Sweet Dynasty in Canton Road
(recommends their special fried rice, beef hor fun & bean curd)

3) Dinner if you hadn't tried Maxim yet, it's a good time to eat there (it's really good).
(eg roast pigeon)
Others that I tried
- Zen @ the Peak (food esp prawns very nice but very snooty yet gave me bad service so quite disappointed).
- Tai Woo (tried their Lobster with fried noodles - very nice) but rest of food soso only. Also looks a little run down.
- Golden Baiuhinia (?) at HKCC (wan chai) - very nice food/decor. Try their fried prawn with mango.

4) If you're there over Friday/Sat, Sweet Dynsasty closes late @ 1am so if you're feeling hungry, still worth a trip there.

That's it - time to work it off.

Was at the Peak for quite a few hours as I wanted to take some night shots. Remember to bring a tripod for ur camera and a light jacket. Didn't visit MT as I felt it's not worth it.

BTW, there's a HRC outlet there as well but not selling food.
Hmm.. Thking of taking nite shots too. Are there any ledges which I can use to rest my camera instead? Lazy to bring tripod >_< Haha...

Also, thking of going to Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront to see nite view, as well as Avenue of Stars for the Sumphony of light. Erm, any place to rest the camera on / steady the camera with?

Wah lau. You go to TST and want to eat at Hard Rock????!!
There are better food places around. Search the thread.
Try something that we can't get/seldom eat here eg roast pigeon.

OR try something more exciting mah; eg dinner at the peak at the western restaurant that has a view. Of course it's not cheap but it'll be memorable.
Haha.. Hard Rock, my best fren wanted to go mah...

It's like a place which I will visit on my trip, so long as the place have, eg. Bali, Osaka... Then will go buy something for my best fren. This time she coming on this trip, so juz go together lor... =)

Btw, dinner @ the peak seems interesting. But ex anot -.-
