Hong Kong bites

The Globe & Mail takes a bite of Hong Kong: You don't need a glittering emporium to eat well in Hong Kong. Start your day at Law Fu Kee in Central, an amiable hole in the wall specializing in congee, simmered-to-velvet Chinese rice porridge laced with ginger and spring onion. Condiments range from shredded pork to fish head; as with pizza, you design your own. Arrive early enough, and you'll see family members shaping shrimp dumplings by hand and prepping noodles for the lunch trade in a flurry of flying fists.
