Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations – Hong Kong Restaurant List
I am a fan. Have been for years and do not attempted to make a secret of it. I have read Tony’s books, seen almost every episode of “No Reservations” and make an effort to eat at the places he visits on the show.
When I realised we were moving to Hong Kong, watching the 2007 “No Reservations” Hong Kong episode, was one of the first things I did.
Below is a list of restaurants Anthony Bourdain visited in Hong Kong while filming. I cannot guarantee they are all still open , or in the same location but hope this list helps you track find the places he highlights in the tv show.
