Investment Banker’s Hong Kong Food Guide

New investment banking analyst in Hong Kong? Don’t know what to order for team dinners and don’t want to show your associate that you are an uncultured pig? Let me help!

If you work in ICC instead of Central, then you’re S.O.L.!

This is for Deliveroo/FoodPanda orders not for going on dates, but can interpolate results for going on dates.

Qualifications: Worked in Cheung Kong, IFC and somewhere in Central close to LKF but not giving any more details than that.

This is obviously my opinion but I have heard from numerous counterparties that my taste is impeccable.
