Lunch

Nanhai No. 1

Known for its modern Cantonese fare and panoramic views of the city. Local seafood is the main event here, but there are plenty of other tasty options, including the tea-smoked chicken.

001

Finding this hot spot, modeled after New York speakeasies, is half the adventure. To get there, follow a narrow alleyway off Graham Street. Just before Wellington Street, look for an unmarked black door hidden behind a fruit stall.
