Here are a couple:

For good Cantonese I strongly recommend Tai Woo http://www.taiwoorestaurant.com/eng/index.htm . They have a couple locations but I prefer the Causeway Bay one. The salt-baked chicken is the must-have dish and their other signature dishes are also excellent with the exception of the "juicy stewed beef" dish that was somewhat disappointing.

Your kid will love the steamed milk pudding at Yee Shun Milk Company, from Macau but with a few shops around HK.

The coffee pudding is best, I think.

Have you ever been to Mido Cafe in Kowloon? It is an old cafe that is rather run-down but has a great atmosphere. Get the Spare Ribs Baked Rice and some milk tea. The area around there is old and interesting...good for photos.

My favorite place in Hong Kong is no longer there. The Walled City in Kowloon was one of the most interesting human environments I've ever been to. However, it was razed by the Chinese, and is now a big park. Too bad, it was a crazy, bizarre, and totally cool place. I spent a lot of time there when I was young. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kowloon_Walled_City

Also a fan of walking along the harborfront (TST side) at night, then skipping over to the island and exploring a bit more. The buildings are beautiful and stuff like the HSBC building, you really don't see anywhere else.

In terms of restaurants, I had a fantastic meal at Hutong when I was there last. Great seafood up in the Sai Kung area, as well... in addition to nice hiking and general outdoorsy stuff.

+1. Seafood is also good at Le Yee Mung

Let me know if you want to play with my GF while you're there, though
