Great information and well written, but in the wrong place. I think this should be merged into Hong Kong#What to eat and then deleted. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 03:06, 22 August 2007 (EDT)

  • Neutral. It's an awkward cross between an itinerary and listings as it stands, but it might still be salvageable... (WT-en) Jpatokal 03:35, 22 August 2007 (EDT)
  • Hmmm. Typically, I would be hostile toward this type of itinerary, but as I've never been to HK and if and when I do make I'd want to jump-in and try to get a full dose of culture shock. Thus, I think there could possibly be a venue for this type of information. I'll make an official vote after a couple more days as I see the article progress. -- (WT-en) Sapphire(Talk) • 00:32, 23 August 2007 (EDT)
  • Im the original author. This was just a first draft, with the idea to add more places later, and some more details on each type of food (typical ingredients, level of spiciness, recommended dishes etc.). The idea was to give more than just a list of restaurants - actually a reason to try each one over a period of time. I'm out of town for the next couple of weeks though, so I wont be able to work on it further til then. —The preceding comment was added by (WT-en) 219.79.208.116 (talkcontribs)
  • Seems less like an itinerary than a private 'Eat' section. It's capably written, but if the author has a vision for it beyond what's there - but doesn't intend to do anything on it for a few weeks - well, that's what a (WT-en) sandbox is for. Don't premiere itineraries until they're ready. (WT-en) Gorilla Jones 00:52, 23 August 2007 (EDT)
If this is to become a full-fledged tour, e.g., "eat Japanese for lunch at one of these 3-4 places on Tuesday and Cantonese for dinner at this place, then on Wednesday...", I would have no objections to keeping the itinerary. I myself have plans for a one-day culinary tour itinerary of the US Northeast. As it stands, however, all this content could easily fit in the "What to eat" section of the main city article and the restaurants belong in district "eat" sections. I also agree with Gorilla that Itineraries really should be usable before they are published, as stub and outline itineraries almost never get filled out later. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 09:53, 23 August 2007 (EDT)

I've updated this now to a proper itinerary (at least for day 1). Please update your comments if you still want to delete it. If it stays, I'll carry on in the same format for itineraries for day 2 & 3.--219.79.208.116 10:57, 2 September 2007 (EDT)

It's looking very good! Keep. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 13:34, 2 September 2007 (EDT)
Yes. Keep (WT-en) Pashley 22:28, 2 September 2007 (EDT)

Update?[edit]

Prices are from 2007, and therefore, worthless. Perhaps some of the eateries mentioned in the article are out of business, too. If you are familiar with the culinary scene in Hong Kong, please update this article in any way you can. Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:55, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

eat = "sick (without the ‘k’ sound)"

How do you say "sick" with the "k" sound? "Si'? That is not nearly clear enough. Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:05, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

I believe it's an unreleased k sound—in other words, the back of the tongue touches the soft palate at the end of the vowel, but there's no audible release afterwards. I've adjusted the article accordingly, but it might still be able to use some improvement. —Granger (talk · contribs) 15:43, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
The vowel is actually wrong. It's closer to an "e" (Spanish and Italian pronunciation) sound than an "i" sound. The dog2 (talk) 16:54, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
