    Lunch

    Hey

    I was wondering if anyone else found that when new here it is a bit confusing working out where to get food (and what to get when there!)
    I see lots of little chinese places around but have no idea what to order as is all (obviously) in chinese!

    Can anyone recommend any good places in Central for a take away lunch other than the obvious Starbucks and Pret?

    THanks!

    I work near IFC and after you get sick of Pret there's not much around.

    If you don't mind eating at your desk there's Olivers in the Princes building which does really nice lunches.

    In IFC there's City Super which some good take away food too. If the weather's nice (like today) you can get the lift up to the roof and sit around outside to eat which is a nice touch.

    Delifrance in WW House (and elsewhere) is good if you get there early enough to grab a seat.

    Otherwise there's the MTR to Wan Chai for a bit of quick Subway (sandwich) action. Only 30 minutes there and back - well worth a trip...

    You haven't had lunch yet? How do you make it through the day without eating?

    Canteen has ok set lunches.

    Walk to the dai pai dong on Wellington

    Walk towards Sheung Wan for a lot of Chinese options.

    Is there anything fail safe i can ask for in the chinese places? (trying to avoid chicken feet and fish stomach if poss)

    Oh yeah - forgot that now its not so hot its safe to walk around Central at lunchtime without the safety of the airconditioning!

    I can second that - it's pretty good tucker; my favourite are the mushy peas.
