We were real troopers on our first day in Hong Kong. Jet lagged be damned we trekked our way through the city as best we could. We wanted to turn in early so even though we were still stupidly full from a bakery stop, we forced ourselves to eat dinner so that we could go back to the hotel and call it a day.

On yet another recommendation we taxied over to American Peking Restaurant on Lockhart. We’ll blame the fact that we walked up the stairs even though the restaurant is on the first floor on jet lag. Hahahaa. The place was completely empty. A sign of a bad recommendation? Not quite. It was only 5pm. Super early for dinner by Hong Kong standards – most restaurants are open until 11pm!
