Tai Ping Koon
This Causeway Bay restaurant is one of the most storied in Hong Kong and is still run by the family who started it. While 1860 marked the beginning of this Western-style chain, this location opened in 1971 and is one of three Hong Kong locations. Tai Ping was founded by Chui Lo Ko, a chef from Guangzhou. Inside, many things appear unchanged since the restaurant’s inception, with waist-coated waiters and traditional decorations. Specialty dishes include roast pigeon and “Swiss sauce” chicken wings.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
