I automatically gravitate towards TST when traveling to Hong Kong. TST is located in the south of the Kowloon Peninsula and is across the sea from Hong Kong island. TST is central to most places in Hong Kong and it's really easy to hop on the MTR (subway) to where you want to go . Shopping and dining is plentiful in TST and there is great day time and night time activity. Admittedly, it's a bit touristy. There are approximately 80 Michelin Star restaurants in HK and Macau and HK has one of the cheapest Michelin Star restaurants in the world. Our goal will be to eat at many of the Michelin Star restaurants and other highly recommended eateries during our visit.
One of my pet peeves is how widely different reviews of restaurants can be. One reviewer may give the place a one star rating and complain that the service was terrible and the food sucked, while a different reviewer may say it's the best thing they ever ate and they were treated like royalty. I've always been aware that people have different tastes and expectations and sometimes those standards can be inconsistent. Take the Michelin Star restaurant for example, I'm automatically going to be biased before I walk into the restaurant. It's got a Michelin Star, so I'm already assuming the following: it's going to be a bit pricey, the food is going to be of a high quality and standard, and the service better be good. If I go to a four star yelp rated restaurant, should I have the same assumptions? What I'm trying to say is it's entirely subjective. Could you have a good meal in HK without eating at a Michelin Star restaurant? You sure can! I've been to HK many times previously and have never eaten at a Michelin Star restaurant in HK once.
Another goal on this trip is to find strange flavors of snacks. Can anyone tell me what flavor this is???
