So for those who don't know, I went back to Hong Kong last summer for an internship at a local bank....which means I had almost 3 whole months by myself to eat all some of the glorious food the city had to offer. A lot of people have asked me where I went/ate during those 89 eventful days and sadly I've been too busy/lazy to recall every single  restaurant I went to... until now  (well at least I tried to list them). Being part of the busy Hong Kong work crowd usually means that you eat out almost every meal of the week, so it's to no surprise that I had the opportunity to get a taste of lots of eateries. Contrary to popular belief, I don't actually document EVERY meal (I mean c'mon, sometimes the photographer-Wing just wants to eat too) so I can probably only list 65% (at best) of the places I ate at. Well, here's the (kinda) master list: p.s. keep in mind these are places I went to in Summer 2013 so I'm not 100% sure they still exist or are located in the same place I visited anymore

Legend: located in Hong Kong Island located in Kowloon located in New Territories "*" denotes that this eatery has more than the branch I list out

(Here's a map to help you visualize where they are haha)
